Sunday Challenges

Today I am crafting on my own as Miss K is at her Grandma’s for a few days – school holidays have started here and they love to have time together – yesterday they went to the stage production of Wizard of Oz.

So what’s a mum to do when she has free time? Get crafty of course!

First card up for today fits the bill of 2 challenges:

For my card I used the ‘Build a christmas tree’ die from La La Land, some SU ‘Santa & Co’ DSP and a sentiment from Uniko Studio’s ‘Rustic Christmas’ set. This was a nice and easy card to pull together.


Next is a card for :

I used a new to me set from MFT called ‘BB Polar Bear Pals’, that I coloured in with my SU Stampin Blends. I cut the SU Pool Party cardstock with a wavy line and bent the sentiment along the line – this was made easier by using my MISTI.


I love this guy, he’s super cute in his wintery scarf.

Lastly is a card for another 2 challenges:

The photo inspired me with my colour theme, as I think fireworks have such beautiful orange and yellow hues. This then lead to the idea of fire and flames and with the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Frankly’ had me thinking of Gone with the Wind. I got out my alcohol inks in sunset orange and sunset yellow plus a little bit of gold foil on some the tacky ink.


I hope you agee with me that this looks a bit like fireworks exploding in the sky.

Well, thanks for looking and have a great day.
