CYDA Challenge #33 ~ Embellishment Bingo

Good Morning!!  Nowt to shout about with the weather here this morning, hoping for a bit of sun later, but at the moment it's dull and grey the same as it's been all week.  And to top it all my lappy has just died on me, so I'm quickly just borrowing Steve's.  Not gonna let it dampen my weekend off though. 

It's time for a new challenge over at Craft Your Days Away and this fortnight we're gonna have some fun with Embellishment Bingo!!!


If your not familiar on how it works you will find full details on the challenge blog.

The DT and our GD have some wonderful inspiration to show you and here is mine...


I've used the line Pearls, Flowers & Ribbon on the bingo card.  I so love these Teddy Bo & Teddy Bea images, I will try and add a link when I can but as I'm not on my lappy I'll need to search for links.  I've coloured the image using promarkers.

We do hope you'll be able to join us for new challenge.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!

CYDA Challenge #32 ~ Autumn

Good Morning All!!

Not quite sure what the weather is going to be like today it's looking ok out the back but rather dismal out the front, trying to see which way it's moving but it doesn't seem to be moving either way...lol.  At least on the good side I can see the beautiful autumnal colours on the trees, which is always pleasant to see.  Which leads me nicely onto our next challenge over at Craft Your Days Away, which was chosen this time by the lovely Shaz...

AUTUMN

My favourite season for colour, the start of cosy nights and hot chocolate...yummm!!


This HM stamp is just perfect for the season, wouldn't it be cute to really see little mice gliding down from the trees like these little fella's.  Though I'm not really a fan of the real things, especially so when Steve went to rescue one from the playful Felix the other day, which promptly made it's escape up Steve's leg on the inside of his jeans, it didn't bother Steve but if it had been me I'd of been running around the garden like a mad woman...lol.  But Steve calmly got the fella out and moved him to safety from the cat.  Anyway continuing with my card, I've coloured it with Promarkers, and the papers are from a selection of Prima scraps.

I've not entered any challenges for a long time, but I've been browsing through this morning and found some challenges to enter for a change...

House Mouse - Falling
Oldie But A Goodie - Forever Autumn
Crafty Creations - Leaves & Autumn Colour Pallette
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
One Stop Craft - No Sentiment
Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes

We do hope you'll be able to join us for the challenge this fortnight.  Don't forget that the clocks 'fall' back an hour in the early hours of tomorrow, an extra hour in bed and darker evenings.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!!

Hugs

I made Oldie But Goodie TOP 3 with this card...woo-hoo!!

CYDA Challenge #31 ~ Halloween Colours

Well another late post from me, all my fault this time, decided to muck about with my blog and well now wish I hadn't...lol.  Fingers crossed all is now back up and working and posting I hope.

 The wonderful Mari hosts our lastest challenge over at Craft Your Days Away with the theme of..

HALLOWEEN COLOURS

You can follow a halloween theme or just use halloween colours such as Black, Orange, Green & Purple.

The fabulous DT have come up with some spooky and not so spooky creations to help inspire you and you can check them all out on the challenge blog.  Here's mine.....


I have to confess this is an old card, but one I don't believe I've blogged before as can't seem to find it posted.  I was awaiting a new memory thingy for the camara which hadn't arrived in time for the challenge, so not having a working camara was a bit of a problem, so I'm so pleased to of found this little cutie amongst my picture files.  The image I believe is from Doodle Palace.
A good thing is our internet and phone line are all now back in perfect working order, was a bit of a palava for the poor engineer and it took him a good few hours, but he was determined not to give in until all was sorted, what a star he was.

I hope you can join us for our current challenge which is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp with a $10 voucher code to spend in their online store.

Happy Crafting All!!!

CYDA Challenge #29 ~ Pink, Brown & Blue

Well this is a few days late I'm afraid.  Our internet problems are still ongoing despite BT telling us it's now fixed each time which it is for a short time, but we've just had 2 days with no internet and an intermittent phone line, they say they can see the fault which is external, I think it's about time they again send out a physical engineer rather than dealing with it remotely.

Anyway, I want to say a massive thank you for all my birthday wishes, cards and gifts.  I had a fabulous party on Friday night, after nearly a year in the planning all seemed to go well and I think everyone enjoyed themselves, but boy did my legs aches on Saturday after all the dancing, but it was fun so thats the main thing.  Just waiting to see some photo's now as we forgot our camara, but luckily others took photo's.

So onto the Craft Your Days Away challenge this fortnight.....

Angel has chosen the challenge theme of...

PINK, BROWN & BLUE

I love this colour combo, and the DT and our GD have plenty of inspiration to show you over on the challenge blog.  Here's mine...


 I've combined a popcorn bear stamp with one of Pollycraft's digital images for this baby boy card commisioned for a work colleague.

We do hope you'll be able to join us for our current challenge over at CYDA, we can't wait to see your creations with this fab colour combo.

CYDA Challenge #28

Good Morning All

Crikey we're in September all ready, where is the year going?  We seemed to of had the longest spring ever, will this month give us a short burst of summer.....hmmm wont hold my breath.  Off out later for a very late lunch with some work colleagues (once they finish at 3 o'clock, lucky me has the weekend off!!) to say goodbye to one of the girls who's starting her maternity leave.  I'm sure we will all have a good laugh, so I'm looking forward to that.

It's time for our next challenge over at Craft Your Days Away, and Cathy has chosen.......

MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWERS


I've used some of my own crocheted flowers, still very much a beginner on these but these aren't looking too bad.  The DT appear to have had fun with this one with lots of wonderful handmade flower creations to show you over on the challenge blog.

We do hope you'll be able to join us for this fortnights challenge!!

Enjoy your weekend...

CYDA Challenge #27 ~ Cupcakes

What a lovely day it's been here in East Yorkshire so far, just got back from a morning walking along the beach at Hornsea, then fish and chips for our lunch, which was lovely as long as you could keep away from all the ladybugs and wasps, thankfully once we got walking along the water's edge they didnt bother us so much, so eating your fish and chips whilst paddling is highly recommended...lol.  Unforunately the cloud seems to be building up now, but it was nice to get out in the pleasant weather.

Sorry my CYDA challenge post is late today I was half way to Hornsea when I realised I'd forgotten to do it...oooops!!!  Anyway here it is now....

Well our birthday challenge saw lots and lots of entries thank you to everyone who entered and all the wonderful birthday wishes for the challenge blog.  Well to kick off our 2nd year Gaynor has chosen our next challenge over at Craft Your Days Away....

We do hope you'll be able to join us for this fortnights challenge we can't wait to see all the yummy creations!!

CYDA Challenge #26 ~ 1st Birthday Challenge

Oh my it's been some time since I last posted anything on my blog hasn't it.  I've not been feeling too well recently and in turn have had no mojo to craft, trying to work through it though so hopefully there wont be so many long gaps from now on.

Today we are celebrating our 1st Birthday over at Craft Your Days Away, I can't believe it's been a year since our launch, and what a fun journey our first year has been.  We had to say goodbye to a few wonderful DT buddies but we also welcomed some wonderful new teamies.  So our challenge for this fortnight is quite simply...

BIRTHDAYS

We want to see all things relating to birthdays for any age and anyone, general or special.

We have some amazing inspiration for you over on the challenge blog by three of our GD's and of course the wonderful DT.  

It just so happens we are off to my brother-in-laws a bit later this morning to a BBQ and party for his birthday and our nephews 21st.  Yep thats why it's raining today and now I'm in doubt that I can wear my new maxi dress I'd bought especially...lol, still gonna camp there the night though!!  Anyway, so I had two male birthday cards to make for the occassion not good when you have a low mojo as male cards are always a struggle for me at the best of times, but I got there in the end and I don't think I did too bad considering, so here are the two cards which of course fit in with the CYDA Birthday Challenge....


I think our nephew will enjoy this image from Victoria Case!!


And this one is for my B-I-L, not too sure how much he enjoys golf but we've often seen him in a golf jumper, so I think Maurice from Pollycraft will do him nicely...lol.

Both images were coloured with Promakers.

We have FOUR prizes up for grabs for this special challenge, so we do hope you will join us in celebrating CYDA's 1st Birthday!!!



BoBunny - Gabrielle Collection 6 x 6 Paper Pad


Roses Selection


Three Packs of Card Candi

*****

Well I hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend!!

Take Care

Pollycraft Challenge #94 ~ Embellishment Bingo

Good Morning

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend, ours has been hectic trying to get ready for our holiday next weekend, just not enough hours in the day at the moment.  Anyway it's Monday and time for a new challenge over at Pollycraft Monday Challenges.

EMBELLISHMENT BINGO

A real fun challenge for you this week if you are not familiar with this kind of challenge (which I've got to admit I wasn't before now) there is a grid of embellishments all you need to do is choose a line that is either a diagonal, horizontal or vertical line, and then you will end up with three embellishments to use.  The DT have all had fun with this one and here is mine.....


I've used one of the gorgeous new images from Pollycraft this is 'Claudia Tutu', I've coloured her with watercolour pencils blended with sansador and promarkers on her dress.  This is a comissioned card for a work colleague.  

This is the Embellishment Bingo Grid
I chose the line of Tag - Sparkle - Flowers

You can't see the sparkle very well on the piccy I'm afraid, but I added Sakura Stardust in Clear Star to Claudia's bow, dress detail and ballet pump straps, then also went over the sentiment writing with it too.

We do hope you'll be able to join us for this weeks challenge, have fun!!!

Pollycraft Challenge #84

Hi there, thanks to everyone who joined us for our 'Fly Me To The Moon' challenge over at Pollycraft Challenges last week, some great takes on the theme.  This weeks challenge has been set by Sheena and her challenge for you is....

TEENS

So a card aimed at a teenage girl or boy is what we want to see.

The DT have some fabulous inspiration to share with you over on the Challenge Blog, and here is mine...


I've used Mariella which is available from the Pollycraft Shop, colouring her with Promarkers.

The Creative Cottage are our sponsors for this challenge and one lucky winner will recieve a £10.

We do hope you'll be able to join us for this weeks challenge, we can't wait to see your 'TEEN' creations.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hugs
