DCM Faux

Ok Ok It has been a while - again - I know but I have lots going on right now - anyway here is the card I created for the DCM midweek extra this week. The theme was Faux ... so mine is faux patchwork and a faux flower. I could have added Faux stitching too but I didn't want it to be too Faux if you know what I mean.

Guest Designer

Wow what a thrill - I have been asked to be guest designer at Daring Cardmakers for the next couple of weeks so you'll have to go and check out my stuff and that of the other very creative women!

Anyway this weeks dare was to visit the bottom of your sewing basket and create a card with what you find ... I had lots of cool ideas but no time cos it was the holidays to really play around with them. So anyway I found this cool piece of fabric and created this card ....

To check this out and see more great cards made with sewing paraphenalia (Wow that is a BIG word for today) go over to Daring Cardmakers.

Too Cold, Too Busy ....

But good old Daring Cardmakers can pull me out of the depths ... this card haunted me till I finally made it last night - I was trying to do other things but it kept calling me till I made it - so here it is ...

"We've another Retro challenge for this week's Little Extra.
This time we'd like you to find your inspiration in the 1960s."

Now seeing as my parents only met in the late 60's and I wasn't even a twinkle in their eye I didn't really have much to go on but thanks to lots of advise from B and K this is about as Hippy/flares/paisley/psychadelic as I could get! The more I look at it the more 70's it looks so I am going to stop looking now!!!

and more time for fun

Gee I love the school holidays - no extra meetings, few evenings out, lots of time to create ... and get ahead so that when the term starts again I don't feel bad that I am not creating and am instead sitting in meetings :-( Oh well I am sure having fun now anyway!

This card is for a Just Bex Challenge (there are heaps of them over there at the moment - I am having real issues uploading my images to the forum though so I am feeling a bit bummed)

Challenge 11 is make a tag or card using up your scraps - these bits and pieces were all left over after my craft session last night - even the ink and stamp were from earlier projects - IYKWIM

These ATCs are for a swap at Just Bex and these are a set of "Pot Luck" cards.

And these ones are a set called "Happy Holidays" although I am feeling in my heart that it is too early for Christmas yet but in my head I know I had better start making those cards soon!

I had some fun last night

Ok - here is a card using Beads for the Daring Card Makers Dare for this week. It also meets the requirements for the Just Bex Challenge 8 - using punched flowers in a card or layout. Woohoo!!

This card is for the Just Bex Challenge 2 - a card with blooms.

And this one is from Just Bex - challenge 7 - Something to Wear.

And finally these are two Winter themed ATCs - so appropriate here at the moment - well the winter if not the snow.
