Project Tuesday - Wiper Card

This week Project Tuesday has challenged us to make a Wiper Card. As the stamp I have used (found in a bargain bin for £1) is so simple I wanted to keep the whole look the same so have only added two small bits of ribbon to decorate.

I knew the words'May your day be filled with sunshine' were perfect for this card and this stamp is called 'Sunshine Wave' by Stampendous. The patterned paper is from a set by The English Paper Company called 'Siesta Lavender'

Have a great day today Nikki xx

Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge SASSC49

The Fresh Batch has a weekly sketch challenge every Thursday and this is my first time joining them. Its a fab sketch and I have used this wonderful Elephant from the Daisy & Dandelion collection. I have had to use coloured pencils to colour the Ellie in but I am pleased with the result.
I do hope if it's as cold where you are today you are keeping warm. Have a fun day.

OSCC Challenge 64

Love and Kisses
This week Shelley has set the challenge and its all about Love and Kisses (Valentines). I find Valentines day cards the hardest to do, I don't know why, and apart from the odd heart stamp don't have many things that are suitable for love cards. However I remembered I had this stamp from Elzybells Fairytale stamps which has 'The Frog Prince ' on it (the story where she kisses the Frog and he turns into a Prince)and decided to it would be perfect.
The papers are from a set that came free with a scrapbook mag, and I used H2O'S to colour the image in. Buttons from my stash box.

All the details of the challenge can be found on the challenge blog One Stop Craft Challenge along with the rest of the DT'S cards and details of this weeks prize.
Have a good weekend, Nikki xx

I can Crochet !!!!!

One thing I wanted to do this year was challenge myself to try new things and learning how to crochet was one of them. With all this snow, meaning extra days at home, I sat and learnt how to crochet. I made the bag and also the flower myself and the handles came free with a knitting mag.

It isn't perfect but I am very pleased with it.

Project Tuesday-One Sheet Box

Today is Project Tuesday new challenge day. This week it is a box made from one sheet of card. Its so easy to make. I decided to theme mine around Easter but sadly my only 'Happy Easter' stamp is too big even when I tried to make it into tag to add to the side.

The stamp is from Elzybellsand I coloured the chick in with H2O'S.
I used Brazil card for the main box and paper and card from the left over scrap box.
The ribbon was also a some I had in the ribbon bag left over from another project. So not only was this a nice quick project it was a lovely cheap one as well.
Hope you all keeping warm
Luv Nikki xx
