DCM Golden and OpShop

Last week's Little Extra on DCM was left quite open really. It was simply 'Golden'

This is the card I made for it.

The background paper is far more golden IRL.

For the OpShop challenge i bought this Hawaiian flower chain thingy. Its was all they had. There was no bits'n'bobs at all.

Then this is what i did with it.

DCM Big and Little Challenge

Here's what was asked

Big & Little We'd like you to use items in pairs of Big and Little - so you need to have both sizes on your card ie big & little buttons, big & little die cuts, big & little hearts, big & little circles etc The theme of your card can be whatever you like this time, so that's nice of us, isn't it?

And here's what I did.

I used big and little sizzix hearts, prima flowers, eyelets and buttons. I wonder does the two different size fonts count too or am I just pushing it??

Pencillines Sketch #49

This is my take on this weeks pencillines sketch. This is a pic of me and my BF taken at my 21st bday a few years ago. (sorry for the poor pic but its nighttime and i took it indoors)

By now you've probably guessed that i like using sketches and i find that pencillines is really getting my mojo up and going. I suppose i reckon that if i keep up with the sketches i'm at least getting one LO a week done.

BTW for anyone who hasn't seen Scrapwest are doing a cybercrop shortly to celebrate their 1st anniversary. Sholud be great coz all the girls on their DT are fab.

Pencillines Sketch #48

This was another great sketch and I loved working with it. I really like how my LO turned out . The only thing missing is journalling. I might add a journalling spot in the bottom right corner of the LO but to be honest I don't really have much to say about the photo. I don't know when it was taken or who took it - I just like it.

Pencillines Sketch #47

This is my take on the pencillines sketch for last week
Really liked this sketch coz it suits my style - I tend to use straight clean lines. I really have to push myself anytime I want to try anything different.

Was kinda stuck with the title for a while coz I didn't want to write on photo - haven't done it before and I was a bit scared but gave it a bash anyway.

This is one I finished off last night. Started it ages ago but didn't have the smaller photo and it was just missing something.

Scrapwest Sketch

Audrey put this sketch up on her blog ( for ScrapWest last week

- she got it from SusieQScrapbook.

And this is what I did with it.

I love these papers and have had them for ages and never gotten a chance to use them. I actually have loads of pink papers but never had a photo that suited until now so I'm delighted to finally be able to do something with them and I loved using this sketch. Its simple but I think its really effective.

Also did this card. It was quite simple really but i like how it turned out.

A Trio of Welsh Barbers ...

... This is the challenge for Daring Card Makers this week and here's the explanation

( Dai is a common Welsh nickname for David and as there are a lot of Dai's around they are known by their jobs so a Welsh barber would be known as Dai Cuts.)

So this is what i came up with.

I used three different dies - the butterfly is one, the second is the banners and then all those flowers at the end are from a third die.
