UYS Challenge #215 - Inspired By A Quote

Good Evening Everyone

Seems blogger has yet again not properly scheduled my post and I have been so busy this past week that I didn't even notice!  How bad is that??  Bad I tell you.  Anyway this fortnight my challenge was to be "Inspired By A Quote".  For this challenge I decided to make a simple card.  Sometimes I love simple!  Easy and quick can sometimes make the best cards.

Please make sure you head over to the Use Your Stuff  blog to leave some love for both my fellow Design Team Members as well as those you have entered a card/layout into our competition AND I'd love to see you create something to submit as well!

Here is my card creation :-


Thanks for stopping by everyone and until next time... Happy Easter and Happy Scrappin' as well.

Hugs

#213 UYS - Lace, Ribbon or Twine Challenge

Good Morning All

Another Challenge fortnight for me over at Use Your Stuff.  This week our challenge was to create something, anything we pleased as long as we used lace, ribbon or twine on our creation.  For something different this week I went with a layout... so many photos yet to scrap! I feel like I am falling behind and will never catch up!!  This layout features two people very special to me and very dear to my heart!  My adopted Sis and her wonderful hubby.  This "fun" photo was snapped when they came up to visit us so we could all go see BON JOVI!!  I love this photo of them both!


Hope you find a little inspiration from my layout or from some of the other amazing creations over at UYS.  Don't forget to leave some love for my fellow DT members on the blog and post your creations as well via the link at the bottom of the challenge post!  Can't wait to see what you all create.  Til next time,

Hugs

Paper Craft Addicts March Challenge - Ink It Up!

Good Morning All

I can hardly believe it but March is here already... the start of the third month of 2016... seriously where has the time gone?!  So with a new month comes a new card challenge over at Paper Craft Addicts (please note this is a closed facebook group so you will have to ask to join & wait to be approved).  For my card challenge this month I decided on highlighting INK... so my challenge is called "Ink It Up!".  Here is my card :



I have heat embossed the Swallowtail Butterfly stamp from Stampin' Up in black ink and then gone over it with pink and blue inks using a sponge to highlight the embossing.  This is just one of the many uses of inks apart from the obvious so please show me what you can do.  I might even learn something new!!

Thanks for stopping by

Until next time

Hugs
