LPoCF #184 Fred She Said

 Hello all,

I finally had to give in and get a new pc it works so much better than the 12yo one it has replaced but with new comes more issues, I have been blaming the old pc for shadows in the corner of my screen, turns out to be the screen with the problem although it will work for the time being, also my old printer is not compatible with the new pc, so new printer to come too.... it is also 12yo so really should be glad it has worked for so long, I will be plugging old pc in as needed to use printer until current inks run out so that I can continue my blog and design team commitments....

Today brings us to an all new Anything goes challenge with my team mates over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, apologies for the photo being dark, I can only think it is caused by the winter sun this week sees the Australian Winter Solstice. I have used two coloured images from our sponsor to make two male birthday cards, for a change I won't be madly making two cards for my Dad and Uncle who have birthdays the same week.

LPoCF #180 All Dressed Up Little Bookworm

 Hello again,

Autumn has well and truly arrived here in Australia, the trees are beautifully coloured and dropping all their leaves. I hope those of you who celebrate have a Wonderful and Happy Easter.

Today brings us to an all new Anything goes challenge with my team mates over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, this fortnight we are sponsored by All Dressed Up who are giving the winner 2 digi stamps of choice. All Dressed Up kindly gave us two images to use and I chose Little Bookworm I printed the image in two sizes and ended up colouring both and making two cards in two different sizes. 

All Dressed Up

Prize 2 Digital Stamps

The first card is a smaller card A6 (10.4x 14.8cm) size using the image and some paper snippets to add to the sides, I printed the sentiment from my pc onto the darker pink cardstock and die-cut with MFT fishtail flags set, finished off with a trio of hand punched flowers with tiny gems added, the ribbon and bow on the flower were paper pieced with snippets of patterned paper on both cards.



The second card is C7 size or (12.6x17.8cm) I added the large sentiment from Inkylicious (I won from Snippets Playground) using Versa color Cyan ink cube and some clear embossing powder and another striped snippet, finishing this one off with three pre-made flowers which have a green gem in the centre, one flower is also glittered. 


What I used:-
White card blanks Aussie A6 and C7 size
White card for printing
All Dressed Up Little Bookworm Digi image

black and white striped paper
kraft, plain pink, blue and pink polka dot paper snippets

P.S. Many thanks to all my blogging friends and visitors who stop by and leave me a comment, I truly appreciate them all! Apologies I've not been around much, my 12yo pc appears to be on the last legs, and has started randomly shutting down, usually when I'm in the middle of something. I changed the 'watch/button battery' inside the tower and all appears well at the minute.
