You might like to use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice!


I have used Quirky Parrot again as I wanted a Father's card for my Dad and I thought he would like this.

I coloured it with markers and cut it out....



The background is a layer of plaid, then a layer of blue card and then a hand stamped gingham using some kitchen sink stamps and torn to size.
These were all added to a white card blank.
 Finally I added the Tonic die cut 'happy' cut in white then plaid. I printed Father's Day on the computer and die cut it with a small stitched die.





Ike is sponsoring  The 12 Months of Christmas Link up this month and their theme is also

  'Add some plaid'

Butterfly Challenge I is for Impossible card

I do love the Butterfly challenge -
 it is always a challenge to use some or all of the elements of the wheel including a butterfly. 

This year however it has the additional challenge of a different fold - my crafty friends would tell you I LOVE a fold...

I have an extra challenge at the moment as I am at the start of my 4th week of a 9 week trip to Australia - very little crafty stuff to hand, but still the need to play now and then...

The theme for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge is an Impossible card and she gives instructions on how to make two different versions here

I went for Version 11 but actually made the base slightly bigger to contrast the black against the paper. This is the current wheel:


Inch worm = the colour of grass.

Iceberg =  pale blue/grey.


The first step is to cut a 5 by 7 piece of card... the only piece of A4 card that I had was black so this determined how I designed my card.
I used a paper from a Mini Stack from The Craft Stall.
This included  Imperial Red, and Inch Worm.


The silver butterflies are from a reel of seals.

I wanted to use all the elements from the wheel - so I used the rest in my embellishments - some grey flowers to use all three colours.
The other flowers were made using a small clear stamp with ink from markers to make the red and green flowers.


I added the extra strip with a red 'congratulations' sticker.


Finally I added the small grey pompoms and clear gems.


I will link this to the Butterfly Challenge

a new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!

Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Use some red'.

Here's my card...very quick and easy!!




Starting with a white square card blank, I matted this with dark red card then a piece of DP from my stash. Next I added another rectangle of red card followed by a deer cut from kraft - a negative die cut. Finally I added the sentiment from Create and Craft's flocked Christmas set.
