Die Cuts

Die cutting is what is required for our challenge this week at Charisma Cardz, so I have die cut the edge of my card with a Tim Holt 'On the Edge' die and I have used a die cut chipboard bird from Maya Road which is my hoarded item for the challenge at Use it Tuesdays. I confess that although I did use Promarkers on my card, it was only to add a shadow to the birdcage stamped image - hope it still counts for the challenge ;o)

Who's for a sketch challenge?

I took a quick break from preparations for my first craft fair of 2013, the house is now full of monkeys and other stitched items such as spectacle cases and felt brooches - only 1 more day to get it all organised and labelled - eek!
However it's always fun to do a good sketch challenge and this week the Charisma Cardz challenge has a great sketch by Natalie which I really enjoyed using for my dt card. I used an old favourite stamp which I think came from Sugar Nellie but can't now find! I coloured the image with Promarkers and used papers from Basic Grey and crocheted flowers from, I added a die cut Kaleidoscope butterfly by Memory Box with a diamonte gem to finish off my design.
