Milk Carton boxes

Hi Everyone 2 little boxes today, I was looking through my files for a box, when a follower email came through, with just what I was looking for, thanks Carol. I cased them LOL. I thought it a wonderful idea and so did my eldest SiL, I gave them to her for her 82nd birthday. One with some expensive choccies in the the bigger box and the other with a Cadbury's creme egg. I think she was more thrilled with the egg LOL.
paper - Botanical Bloom paper pad from B&M store
milk carton with shaped tops - Lettering Delights
cut on the Cameo
butterfly die - freebie from Simply Cards and Papercraft issue 173
cut each side of paper for each layer.

cat with daisies

Hi Everyone, my card today has a minimum colour pallete, I think it works with the image which is from the Outlawz progressive challenge and given by -
coloured in PS
flower border svg, I used part of her Daisy Border card - Shirley's cards
butterfly dies and embossing folder - Tattered Lace 
sentiment Create with TLC
bling - Poundland

this card is for the Outlawz Progressive Challenge and the 
Sketch Challenge, I am using a sketch SC012015 from 2015 turned 45%

Seeing as the sentiment quotes April, 
I thought I would show you our garden a few days ago

Symmetry

Hi Everyone, my DT post today is for
http://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/
I have to be honest I had to look up the meaning of symmetry to make sure I was on the right track.

It has reflection symmetry. It has one line of symmetry. When you fold a shape along a line of symmetry
one half fits exactly over the other.
 When you put a mirror on a line of symmetry and look from either side, 
the shape looks like the original.

 as luck would have it I saw a card that I liked in a magazine and cased it. 
shape - Photoshop shape
paper - Craft Sensations paper pad
cut on the Cameo
sentiment also done on the Cameo using the sketch pens
bakers twine in stash
Nuvo Crystal Drops
all 3D'd onto the card

Why don't you go looky and see what my fabulous Teammates have done, they are clever and artistic. There are Great ideas for mens cards from my Teammates and the challenge entries.

Dream Big

Hi Everyone, my post today takes in a few challenges, that I like to participate in.
So straight onto the card, it HAD to be a red dragon, I can't think of a dragon being any other colour, as I've said before, as it's on our flag LOL.

Image and papers - Dragons Lair Designs
coloured in PS, 
with Sheena Douglas Sparkle pens over the dragon, I forgot they aren't "see through" straight onto paper, so I wasted all my time colouring oh! well.
 I print and cut, on the Cameo, the sentiment shape, 2 layers of buttons, centre and scalloped shape layer.
leaves - Tonic Arboreal Dream die set 


Outlawz sketch challenge

Dragons Lair Colouring challenge
