Flower Power at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Flower Power



This cut elittle peacock surrounded by flowers was a kit I found in a charity shop.




I used an aperture card from my syash and covered it in tissue paper that one of my birthday presents last year had been wrapped in.  I'm really pleased with the effect and might use it again as I have plenty left!

This card will be for my mother-in-law's birthday, let's hope she likes it.

Anything Goes at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Anything Goes


I got this little kit from Hobbycraft.  I don't like the way they do these kits now, they don't list the floss colours, its all done by coloured squares which makes it more difficult to sort the threads.  Luckily this one doesn't have similar colours so it wasn't too bad. 

This will be for my Mum's birthday.  I've used paper, card and dies from my stash.

CAS at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Clean and Simple


I love CAS cards but I'm not very good at them so I went to Pinterest for some inspiration.

I used my circle dies to cutt he circle then put some patterned paper behind to make a bauble.  My penwork isn't the best, it's a bit shaky but I'mhappy with the stamped sentiment and the overall look.

Birthday at Craft Rocket

Hello again everyone, it's time for a new monthly challenge at Craft Rocket.  Our theme this month is Birthday.


I saw something similar to this on Pinterest using two different types of embossing patterns.  I was going to add a botton and some ribbon but thought it looked best without and kept it simple.

Guest Designer at Dragonfly Dreams

Hello again everyone, I'm thrilled to have been invited to be a guest designer this month at Dragonfly Dreams!


The theme this time is Use Black - a little or a lot. I've opted to use a lot! I've been given this cute panda form Oddball Art to work with, he didn't take a lot of colouring, the little bit I've done is with Promarkers.



The papers were an absolute bargain, I got them in a random pack in a charity shop, the pearls are from my stash.
