Do penguins have knees...

Hello again, It's crazy4challenges time again and this week we were asked to make a card with an animal theme.
Look at this cute Chilly the Penguin sitting so perfectly on Karen Burnistons circle accordion die. I used Els glitter in double sided adhesive to make the penguins white feathers shimmer.
I love how the circle and fancy accordion dies work brilliantly together and as for the quote, I find pinterest is a wonderful place to get inspiration for cards and often come across quotes that make my creative ideas flow.

Crazy4challenges final challenge...

Hi all this is my final challenge as guest designer over at crazy4challenges. The image Helen chose for inspiration has had the ladies produce some really fantastic cards.


And here is what my creative eye came up with...

A cute mouse stamp on Karen Burniston Lorna label die set, with an absolutely fabulous little statement that all you stammers out there will surely agree with..

"Yes, it's ANOTHER new stamp! and yes of course I NEEDED IT.

Cute Critters Mr & Mr card...

Happy summer everyone, well it's that time again. This months Karen Burniston designer challenge was to get creative with Karens new Cute critter dies, Hoppy, Poppy and Chilly. They are all available to buy from Elizabeth craft Designs online by clicking on one of the thumbnail links at the bottom of this page.

 

This challenge coincided beautifully with a friend asking me to make a card for an up coming wedding she is due to attend. I designed it to look sensible and traditional on the outside.

I used the banner die from the Lorna pop it up die set to stamp my congratulations on to, and an Elizabeth craft designs curvy leaves die as well as the heart die that come with this circle pull card designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth craft designs.

I then got to use Karen Burniston's Owl and props dies on the inside and look.......

Two cute guys in tuxedos, Dickie bow ties and bowler hats that kiss when you close the card:)
