Pollycraft Challenge Time!

Happy Monday crafters!
Yes I'm late, I'm late!! AAARRRHHH!
But better late than never right?

This week in our Pollycraft Challenge, the Sassy Sheena has chosen the theme of:

So we want to see reds, oranges, browns, etc in your creations.

I'm not great with these colours so it was a  little bit of a struggle but I found these fantastic papers to help me out.
I also struggled for an idea so I searched for a sketch and found an awesome one over at Sketch Saturday. Phew! lol.
I've used the gorgeous Pollycraft Image "Flower Girl" from the Swings 'n Slides #2 collection.
I've also used some Liquid Pearls on here for the first time. I bought some a couple of days ago and thought I'd try it out. Don't look too closely though as I dropped it before it had dried. Well that's what I get for running late and trying to get a picture of it hot off the press!! lol.
This week we are delighted to be sponsored by
Bunny Zoes Crafts
who are offering the lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend .
I hope you all have a great crafting week and look forward to seeing your entries this week at Pollycraft!

2 Challenges in 1!!

Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring 2 different challenges - Cupcake Craft have a fabulous sketch to play along with and Card Makin' Mamas are asking us to be "Pretty in Pink". There are TPS prizes up for grabs so we hope you can play along too. Since these challenges are so close together, the DT girls were given the option of combining them. What a great Boss Lady! lol.
I thought these were awesome challenges so I jumped at the chance to join in.

Can you believe I hadn't coloured up the gorgeous Fairy Kira? I know right! Now to have the chance to combine a sketch challenge and a pink challenge together was perfect!!
Add a few pearls, flowers, a bow and a TPS sentiment and I'm done.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Well that's that then!
I've had my Mum visiting from last Thursday and today I took her to the Airport thinking, wow, that went fast!
She had a blast playing with all my goodies at my craft desk but it's so nice to be able to take control of it back again! lol.
I did manage to get this gorgeous Wee image coloured up that I've had sitting staring at me for the last few weeks and then after dropping Mum off at the airport, I took time out for me (therapy!!) and made a card.

I found a great sketch over at WOC by Dena and so followed that. So of course I'm entering my card into the WOC challenge. I've thrown a few WOC flowers on there including the beautiful larger rose buds that I hadn't used as yet.
Such a lovely sketch to use.
The sentiment I used is from Tickled Pink Stamps.

I'm not Distressed!!

It's time for some distressing this week at Pollycraft!
The lovely Maria has set this week's challenge at Pollycraft as....
I've used another Swings and Slides image (so love this collection!!) This one is Cute As A Cupcake!

Yes I've put another button on this card. Did you really expect otherwise? lol. I've distressed all the edges and then inked them for that old vintage feel as well.
The large flower is a handmade flower that I made 'last year' when my very talented and gorgeous friend, Jackie came to visit. It blended great with these colours and image so have put this on as well. I guess I'm still recycling from last week's challenge! lol.
I've had my Mum up visiting for the last few days and her backside has been glued to my craft chair so I was even lucky to be able to complete a card this week!! lol. Well at least she's having fun and it is my fault after all that she's now addicted to stamping and card making! As my partner says "It's a 'disease" (just keeps spreading!) He's right you know!! lol.

This week Paula is sponsoring again, and the lucky winner will get to choose 10 Digis from Pollycraft

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog for some inspiration from the other Pollie girls!

Recycle time at Pollycraft!

Oh yeah it's Monday again! This one definitely snuck up on me and I'm just scrapping in my card this week for the Pollycraft Challenge!
This week the creative Emma has chosen the theme...
So get rumaging through all your scraps, your sewing box and all your odds n ends to find something to stick to your card for this one!Please let us know in your post what you have recycled.
I guiltily (if that's a word hee hee) found some cardboard my Mum had joyfully saved for me from a box she had received a gift in. This was nearly 12 months ago and yes I had full intentions of using it and seen everyone else throwing this corrugated cardboard on their cards thinking it looked good. Well I've finally done it for our recycled themed week at Pollycraft. It was great timing too as my Mum arrives for a holiday here in just 2 more sleeps!! Phew! lol. Now I can show her that I really have used the 'special' piece of cardboard she had so excitedly saved for me! Thanks Mum!
Oh yeah, the card. Here it is for you.
This little guy is from the 1st Swings n Slides Collection called 'My Ride'. I just love these little cuties and they're so great to colour up too.
As most of you know I also have an obsession with buttons! I've added a few from my collection but also recycled the large bronze button from one of my kids jackets. Yaay, finally got to use it on a card. Go me! lol.
The prize for one lucky winner is a £10 voucher to spend at My Mums Craft Shop.

Hope to see you in the challenge at Pollycraft this week.

Another mission done!

Yes I'm still wading through heaps of pre-coloured images and my stack of dp's! lol.
I'd coloured this cutie up when I had my little trip away (along with many others!).
I've been dying to make some kind of tea light holder for awhile now and decided to go with the tutorial  that the delightful Jane Johnson made up here.
I changed mine a little and made a tag instead of an easel card on the side.

Just a little decoration with some Magnolia Doo Hickey dies and a MS butterfly punch.
It was my first time sticking down acetate and it worked! lol.

A bit of stamping on both sides of the tag, added a ribbon and da dah! Done!

I really enjoyed making this and it was easier than I thought thanks to Jane's tutorial! Now that I know what I'm doing you'll be seeing more of these! I think they make an awesome gift.
I found a challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar who are asking for 'Tags' this challenge so I hope this counts!
Thanks for taking the time to look at my little project today.

I know I say this every Monday, but really? Monday again already??? Where the heck are my days going to?
There is always one good thing to look forward to on a Monday though for us crafters and that is another Pollycraft Challenge!
This week our very talented boss lady Paula has given us all a sketch to play with. I just love sketches and this one is just awesome!

I've created a card for you using one of the newest images in the Pollycraft Shop. This one is called Super Star from the Little Stars Collection.
The little sentiment I've added to the middle of the star is from one of our teamie's blog, Marit. She has a heap of great sentiments over at ther blog here.
Oh and yes, it has some buttons of course and a cute litte ABC charm from my stash!

Heres the sketch for you.

its an 'in house' prize this week...
You could choose 10 Digis from the Pollycraft Shop if you are this weeks lucky winner!
