Jungle Mobile

Hey; as lectures have been cancelled today, here is a project I worked on last summer.
I made this mobile for Heidi Skye for her Christening present; She is a beautiful baby :)
I started by cutting the fabric out for the animal squares and the hanger of the mobile. I covered each square with an animal fabric using pinflair glue.
I cut lengths of ribbon to hang the squares with, making them different lengths. I then stuck two different animals together with the lengths of ribbon coming out the top and bottom of the squares. I stuck the hangers together with the animal square lengths hanging out the bottom and a loop of ribbon coming out the top to hang the mobile with.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges: -
eureka stamps - inspired by a song
creative creations challenges - inspired by a song
kaboodle doodles - anything but a square
simply create too - for a female
crafty boots challenges - out of your comfort zone
cheerful stamp pad - anything but a card
glitter n sparkle challenge - anything but a card

Happy 25th Anniversary

Hey, I made this card for mum and dad for their 25th Wedding Anniversary last year but have only just got round to blogging it...Belated congratulations you two :)
I used the digi image called 'Valentines Night' from the Crafts and Me website and coloured it using my promarkers. I added gold, silver and green glitter to the fairies wings to make them sparkle.
I then cut the image into a rectangle and rounded the two right hand corners. I punched the left hand egde with a flower border punch and then edged the image with green ink. I then backed the image with silver holographic card.

I edged my backing card with dark green ink and then backed it with dark green card followed by green fairy paper. I chose a further fairy patterned paper and backed this with silver paper. I cut these to different sizes and attached them in the top right hand corner of the paper.
I raised the letters of 'Happy Anniversary' across the top and down the side of the image at different angles. I coloured green the felt numbers '25' and stuck these onto green card and backed this with silver card; I attached this to the bottom left corner of the image. I added four green flowers to the card, which I inked with green and silver for effect. I added two silver wired flowers to the groups of flowers. To finish, I used round and heart shaped silver gems to the top corner and boarder of the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: - 
not real stamps - love
the sweet pea stampers - goes digital
pumpkin spice - love
crafty calendar challenge - love and marriage

emergency crafters challenge - romance

Musical Guitar

Hello :) It's been a while since I've posted a blog so bear with me! 

I made this card yesterday and wanted to post it so mum can see it...
I cut this digi image into a die and then cut a larger boarder from stripy paper; I then coloured the image with my promarkers, using the backing paper as a colour scheme. I edged both the image and the printed sentiment with purple ink before backing the sentiment with green card.
I edged the card with green ink and backed it with lilac patterned paper. I cut a half size piece of purple holographic paper and attached this across the bottom of the card. I then made six die cut flowers and embossed them using the new embossing powders I got for Christmas. I built each flower up using green, violet and pearl colours before topping them with a green gem. Finally, I added green gems to the top right hand corner of the card and to the opposite corners of the sentiment which I raised over the corner of the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: -
