Allsorts Challenge #741/2 - All Creatures Great & Small

 Hi Crafters,

It's turned rather warm here over the past few days and it's looking good for the weekend but before I head off for some R&R I'd like to share my design team card for the new two week challenge starting at Allsorts today.

Anything Goes/All Creatures Great and Small

I have chosen to use this cute cat die, I have no idea what make it is as it was bought in a bundle from Ebay. The Frame however, is a Crafters Companion die and I have embossed the background using a Daisy Mae Designs Dotty EF. The design paper is from an older Craft Consortium 12 x 12 pad called Bluebells and Buttercups by Helz Cuppleditch.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

to be added

We have lovely prizes from  AALL and Create and a £15 voucher from WOWVOW.

Come and join in the fun this week, the design team have some fabulous inspirational projects for you, take a look at them here.

Have a great weekend!

 Hi Crafters,

We are asking you to use your Dies and Punches alongside your Markers this week at Passion For Markers.

Our sponsor is Sheepski Designs and I was lucky enough to be able to use one of their images for my card.


The dies I have used are older ones from Spellbinders for the background called Tropical Paradise and a Poppy Crafts Die for the sentiment.
I have coloured my image using Promarkers and Copics and added a few enamel dots to match the Hibiscus flower.
Why not come and join us in this fun challenge, we have a great prize of 3 digital images from our sponsor for the lucky winner... Sheepski Designs

The Design Team have been busy as usual creating some fabulous projects to inspire you, take a look at the post here.
