Bird House madness!

These are the little birdhouses that I have become obsessed with. There are six shown here and I have another six in the pipeline. It is starting to get out of hand, but they are so cute I just can't resist. One of the ones I am working on is more a bat house than bird house. I will post when I have it finished.

Crafty Creations Challenge #32

This is my entry for the Crafty Creations Challenge #32. The challenge was to use an embossing technique on your project. As I am probably the only person in the crafting world not to have a dry embossing system of any kind, (yes this is really true people, not even a light box!) I have decided to get the heat gun out and use these great papers from my stash. I have used pink card as my base and layer up the hearts and skulls on a shimmering shocking pink paper. The font is a download from Dafont. The skull, wings and crown are Tim Holtz grungeboard shapes which have been embossed with the base colour and then had a couple more layers of UTEE added. Finally a pink ribbon added to one side.

Cupcake Inspirational Challenge #23

This is my card based on the beautiful cupcake in a cup! I have used some skeleton leaf paper from my stash and layered up a Martha Stewart postcard on some whitewash coredinations cardstock.
The beautiful crochet flower was created by my Mum. She did this just by looking at a photo which I showed her. Now that is a talent! Any way I hop you like the card.

Sweet Sunday Challenge #34

This is my entry for this weeks challenge. I had the decoupage made up for a while and I thought it would be ideal for one of our craft club members' birthday. I stamped and heat embossed the cardstock with cosmic shimmer embossing powder. I then added some purple satin ribbon and some lilac organza ribbon. I hope you like it.

Crafty Creations Challenge #31

This is my entry for the Crafty Creations challenge #31. I had just finished a LO using these papers so they were close to hand. I stamped the owls onto various different papers and layered them up. I did the same with the sentiment. I'm sorry the first two images appear on their sides, they are actually portrait in my album! So I don't know what happened there.

School Days Paperplay Challenge #9

This is my entry for the Paperplay Challenge for this week, entitled Back to School. I have used my new Sassafrass papers "Woodland Whimsy", which I think is perfect for Autumn and back to school. My Mum made the crochet flower and the ribbon and button are from my stash. I can't believe how much my kids have changed over the last three years!
