This week on My Time to Craft the challenge is Cats as I am trying to get a xmas card a week made so I dont get snowed under I decided to use this cute image for my entry
The papers and image are from our Kiddiwinks cd,the ribbon was a freebie from a mag,the flower is a pack I found for 65p and I coloured the middle to suit my card and a buckle finished it off
Thank you for looking

Buttons and The Two of Us 2 challenges in 1

I started this card for the CCT Challenge ' The 2 of us'
The image has been decoupaged but not too high as I dont like my cards too 3D that I cant get them in the envelope
I love these spotty buttons with ribbon

I then popped along to see what Papertake Weekly challenge
was and discovered it was buttons so here I have 2 challenges in one

Papers and images from kiddiwinks cd


Today I decided to have a go at ATC's again inspired by my wonderful find last week. The pyramid decoupage and backing papers are from Passion for Fashion cd http://www.ooh-la-la-creations/

I also used one of my precious tassels and gems
The Atc is for the Arty Girlz challenge Vintage


I have had a wonderful week we decided to visit Cognac with our friends and on the way home stopped off at a Brocante/Antique shop just as we were leaving I spotted this beautiful pack of cards,infact it was the box that caught my eye and it was not until I opened it I discovered these beautiful Oriental playing cards inside
This reminded me I had not made any ATC's for a while

Ooh La La Challenge 10# Acetate

The challenge this week is Acetate and I was inspired to make
this card by Ann design team member for Ooh la la Creations
I so enjoyed making this as it was a first for me with acetate and the tutorial Ann has put on the blog was very easy to follow
I also managed to shrink an insert so that it fitted inside the card so that it all matched
If you feel like having a go pop on over

Wonderful Weekend spent crafting

I have been busy today making sample cards for our cd's and thoroughly enjoyed this afternoon

All the cards have been made from cd's
