Rainbow Lady's challenge - Wear red

Over on Rainbow Lady's challenge this week Cynthia wants you to wear red, well not you unless you want to but as it's wear red day it's seems a good idea for a challenge.

For my card I've used some much loved backing paper that I've had for ages and really struggled to use it as I am not sure where I got it from so probably won't be able to get any more. I know it's daft there's no point in having these nice papers if all you do is look at them.

The flowers were in a Kanban kit but they were cream so I coloured them with the two promarkers I used on the hat and dress then stamped thme with a patterened stamp in Versafine. The gems came in my carousel that I bought from Create and Craft last year when it was on special, just the tiniest touch of liquid glue and they are well stuck.
I do hope you can come over and join us this week as we love to see you. x

CD Sunday - Tag You're it!

Good morning and welcome to my little home on the web. This week over on CD Sunday the theme is Tag You're it, now it's not as bad as it sounds, it just means use a tag or make a tag and you'll be there.

For my card I've used the backing paper and tag from an artylicious cd and although you will struggle to see it on the picture the page is floral. I used a friends die and have had it for ages so decided that today I would use it, I had already coloured it blue when I cut it so had to arrange the rest of the card around it. now that was a challenge in itself never mind having to use a tag and a cd but I managed in the end. I picked out the colour of the book for the backing layers and the strip across the front, this was a bargain and I usually miss things like this but for once I was in the right place at the right time. I bought what Glenda from Chocolate Baroque called a stash-a- lope and it was full of 12x12 pages the like I haven't seen before and a couple of packs of rub-ons and this die set from Spellbinders, all for the princely sum of £10.  Glenda has quite a few lines she is clearing and now and again has some used products at fab prices so well worth keeping your eyes open on that site.

Anyway back to the card, the ribbon was white but I used the prussian blue promarker to change it and the I finished the card off with some flowers from Wild Orchid.

I do hope you can come over and join us this week as we love to visit you and see what you are doing.
