Fall at Kraftin’ Kimmie

Hannah Hearts (7)

Afternoon all! It’s Saturday  and that means it’s time for a new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. A little bit sad as it’s my last post as a guest designer for for the month of August but I would like to thank Kimmie and the Girls for having me join them.

Anyhoo,  back to the challenge and this week we have a fabulous theme of Fall.

I’ve used a not very fall image, Hannah Hearts, but instead used wonderful fall colours, green, orange, rust and yellow to make my card:

Go me…I didn’t really have the right card colours to match so I made my own background. I coloured a piece of blending card with the green, orange and yellow markers I used on the image and then used a pipette to drop Isopropyl Alcohol onto the card.

The Krafty Girls love seeing your creations so be sure to hop over to the blog and submit them so you are in with a chance to win a gift card to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps shop.

Foxer Upper Girl

Foxer Upper Girl (4)

Morning all. It’s time for another Fab Friday post over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog but sniff sniff boo hoo it’s my last DT card as our 4 month term finishes now. I’m really quite sad as I have had a wonderful time creating with Christy’s images and the lovely team of girls I’ve got to work with. I just have to keep my fingers (and toes) crossed as I have applied again for the next term.

Just over a week ago Christy teamed up with Paper Crafters Library and to coincide with the feature released a new image called Foxer Upper including both girl and boy images. I created a card using the girl version and was lucky enough to have it shown on the Paper Crafters Library Tiddly Inks Feature.

Here is the tag shaped card that I created, also using a sentiment from the Wryn New Wings set:

Right best get back to the house work….Now the builders have gone I’m in a Spring Cleaning mode (just 6 months late lol) and I’m slowly working my way around each room top to bottom including washing all the curtains and linens.

DT Call at Tiddly Inks

Wryn Have Heart (3)

Afternoon All. I’m enjoying a rare day with no children! They stayed at my parents last night so Hubby and I  could go out and celebrate our Wedding Anniversary.  It’s not all fun and games though I’m in the middle of a big clean up as the builders have finished and I’ve got to move us back into our bedroom and ensuite…….you wouldn’t believe how far the dust went.

Anyhoo back to the point of my post….the DT call at Tiddly Inks. The card I made for the call is my Hubby’s Anniversary card, so I couldn’t post it until I’d given it to him. I’ve used Wryn Have Heart but if you would like to take a look at my other Tiddly Inks makes please click here

I was a bit brave on this one as I attempted to colour the background to look like wallpaper…I think it turned out OK!
