Crafting Musketeers 'Anything Goes'

Hello Bloggers, I have been away from blog land for a number of months due to personal reasons but I am now back and looking forward to visiting all my favourite blogs and catching up with you all.
I am here to share with you a DT project for Crafting Musketeer's. The challenge for July is Anything goes and the sponsor for this month are the fabulous Crafty Ribbons.

                                                           The prize is some ribbons. And if you don't have your own blog , don't worry ,  remember we have a Facebook Page for you.

Here is my card

I have made a Thank You for my daughter's teacher. I have used a digi download from Pink Gem Designs. I have added a ribbon bow using Crafty Ribbons ribbn. This is a very simple and sweet card to make.

I hope you will stop by the challenge blog and join us this month.

Crafting Musketeer's Challenge 22 - 'cute'

Evening Bloggers, I can only apologise for the delay with this post as it should have gone live on 16th. However, I have only just had chance to check and guess what my scheduled post didnt go live again! With it being half term the kids have been at home and I just havent had chance to come on here. I apologise again.

Anyway here it is, the mid way reminder for Crafting Musketeer's. this month's challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Cuddly Buddly. The prize for this challenge is a £10 Gift Voucher for the store

Here is a little bit about them:

"Cuddly Buddly® is an independent online craft supplies business based in the UK. We understand how important it is to help people keep enjoying their creative hobbies and offer a wide selection of craft products from paper and string to designer digital art, ready to be delivered to you at just the click of a button.
How on earth, you may wonder did we arrive at the name 'Cuddly Buddly'. When Kim began drawing her teddy bears many of her customers commented on how they felt the little bears made you want to cuddle them. Hence the name, Cuddly Buddly - a family term of endearment we use especially towards younger members when a seriously squishy hug is being sought. Since then the name's stuck, like honey to a bear's paw!"

The sponsor gave us some papers and digi's to work with and here is what I have made.

Spectrum Noir markers
Die'sire doliy die
Die'sire christmas bow die
Papers from Cuddly Buddly
Image from Cuddly Buddly
card blank and card for mat's all from my stash aswell as the twine

Hope you can come and join us over at Crafting Musketeers this month

Charisma Cardz 'anything but a card' Challenge

Good Morning,
It is with a sad heart I post this morning, as Carlyann owner over at Charisma Cardz has made the hard decision to close down the Charisma Challenge blog (sob) So this will be my last post on this brilliant DT. 
The last challenge starts today and is 'Anything but a card'. We have some great sponsors as usual
Sponsor one:

All Dressed Up
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.

I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.

Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .

All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.

We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.
Sponsor Two:

I decided to make a wall hanging. It was originally meant for my daughter's bedroom but I like it so much I have decided to keep it in my craftroom and I will make a second one for my daughter.
I have used a template from Sandra's scrapshop. Sandra has some fantastic templates at very reasonable prices so pop on over and take a look.
I have used the Bow Card template but not actually made it into a card so I just left that part out.

I love this template, it can be used for so many different occassions I am sure you guys will see this popping up quite a few times in my posts.

Papers are digital from Sassy Designs Ltd
