CD Sunday - Fox & Friends

Good afternoon everyone - well the rain has stopped & the sun is out, so quite a nice day now.

Over at CD Sunday challenge blog this week the theme is "Fox & Friends" - I was a bit worried about that - as I was not sure what I had that would fit the challenge. Then I remembered Jane Netley Mayhew Collection & there on CD 2 was the image I needed.  In fact there were 2 images.


The background paper came from the CD as well, it is made from the foliage that is to the side of the fox in the top image.  I layered the background paper onto some orangey/tan coloured card & found a Promarker that went with it to colour the ribbon, then placed it on a square white card. The lower image has been placed flat on the card & the top image is raised on sticky pads.  It doesn't show up too clearly on the photo but in the lower right hand corner there is a little flourish embellishment.  I chose it because it was almost the colour of the background paper.  In the top left hand corner are 3 little flat backed butterfly gems whose colour almost matches the ribbon.

Thank you for visiting my little blog I hope you found it interesting.  If you have time before you go please leave a comment - they are always very much appreciated.

Lets Get Sketchy - October week 2 - #51



Hello everyone
I had been thinking recently it was about time I started entering some sketch challenges - especially if it helps me get my many photos scrapped.  Of course one of the biggest events to turn into memory pages is my recent wedding.  So that was the trigger for joining this challenge.

I decided to go with the sketch over at Lets get Sketchy as I knew just which photos  to use & also I had not entered one of their challenges for some time.

This is the sketch;


Here is my page & I haven't deviated all that much from sketch as it was so nice.


It is a digital page as this is how I make my pages at the moment & I use Serif Craft Artist.  The papers & embellishment come from a pack called Cream Dream which just suited the cake photos.

Thank you for visiting my little blog space I hope you enjoyed your visit & that you will call again. If you have time before you go please leave a comment they are much appreciated.

CD Sunday - Butterfly

Another week has gone past & it's time again for the challenge over at CD Sunday & this week the theme is "Butterfly".

Here is my card;


I used MCS Parchment Delights CD's - one for the background & Vol 3 for the image.  I often use the Parchment CD's & change the colour of the image to suit an idea.  So I took the pale image & changed it to black creating a silhouette version. Then I printed the original image again onto white card & cut out the individual butterflies adding a little more colour to them with Promarkers.  I then cut them out, clear embossed them for a shiny finish & layered them over the black image slightly offsetting them.  Something else was needed to lift it & I layered the whole onto a piece of black card leaving a very narrow border.  The ribbon was a great find & I layered that as well onto a strip of black card.  In the box with the ribbon was that lovely floral ribbon which again was just what I needed - so that was placed over the ribbon.  A couple of flat back gems to add a little bit of bling & voila!  Butterfly card.


Thank you for stopping by my little blog I hope you enjoyed your visit & if you wish to leave a comment it will be much appreciated.

I made top 3!

Good evening everyone - I found out this afternoon that my entry for the CD Sunday challenge - Snow People was chosen in the top 3.
This challenge was for Sunday 22 September & you can see the card in my previous post.
I took my time over the last challenge & missed the date - so I had better pull my finger out for the challenge this week.
Hope to back fairly soon with my entry.
