Butterflies and Sunny Challenge

Hi there crafters,

I hope your week has been filled with fun and crafting. I have been so busy this last week, so it has taken me all week to get to the challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week.

Here is the sketch,

Sketch Challenge from Sunny Challenges and Creations this week.

I have been using the Big Shot so much this week so it was inevitable that I used it in the challenge. Here is my entry for this weeks challenge,

Beautiful Wings and Butterflies – Mother’s Day Card

To complete the challenge, I added the stripes with the lattice embossing folder. Mother’s Day is this weekend here in Australia. Last weekend at the markets, I sold out of all my Mother’s Day cards so  I needed to make just a couple more for those last minute shoppers at the markets this Sunday. I have so many more things to make as shoppers really spent last Sunday. Mostly notepads and post it notes, also some mini albums that I have made with the top note die.

Off to create some more lovely things for this weekend. Have a great day and come back soon. I have at least another post almost ready to go.

Window Card Challenge

Hi and I must apologise profusely on my lack of posts.

I have been quite ill with a chest infection and I now and quietly thinking that after almost 2 rounds of antibiotics I am starting to feel better. Today also marks 4 weeks since I smoked my last cigarette. I am sure some of the unwellness I have been feeling can be contributed to this but no where near all. I have a repeat of the last antibiotics so going to get them made up and really knock this bug on the head.

So last week was my last week on the Design Team at Sunny Challenges and Creations and the challenge was to put a window in the front of the card. Again first I must apologise to Kris, Vicky and Gwen as this card was not up to my usual standards. However, here it is in all its glory.

SC 037 - 12 Window Card Challenge

Now I am not happy with this as its too flat, if I were to do this again, it would have sponging around the edges and dimensionals to give the card some depth. Maybe I am being too picky, I am moving on.

I have also been participating in a Secret Sister group on Facebook and I made this window card for her. I am sure that she should receive this in the post today or no later than tomorrow!! As its the reveal card I have no problem with posting this here, made later last week when I was feeling a little better.

Window Card - April Reveal

No I wasnt drunk, I just took a crooked photo and had already posted it off last week before looking at the photos. Oh by the way I left the camera on too. Lucky it goes to sleep on its own or I would have had no battery!!

I used some of the Twitterpated Designer Fabric a bit left over from the final reveal gift. I just love this pleated ribbon, its just so luxurious dont you think?

I also hadnt been near my sewing machine for a little while so I cased a gift I received from my secret sister and made a final little gift for my secret sister.

Desk Caddy Corner.

This is using the Large Scallop Square Die and the lovely, gorgeous Twitterpated Designer Fabric. I have just used some “pellen” (I think that is what its called) between the layers of fabric to ‘stiffen’ the walls a bit, so it stands up on its own. Here is another view of one side. Where I appliqued a Beautiful Wings Butterfly out of the inner fabric just to see if I could machine applique around corners. It turned out ok for a first go (I have only appliqued in straight lines before this).

Front of the Desk Caddy.

I love how this turned out and I am sure my Secret Sister will be thrilled with her final reveal gift.

I will be posting more this week as there is a new challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week and I am itching to have a go.

However, I have 6 desk caddy’s cut out ready to sew up so they are ready for the markets. They would make lovely gifts for Mother’s Day which is coming up very shortly now. I also am making some little gift tags that I will be bagging up with a sweet topper on them to sell. They will be quite generic so they can be used all year round but also would make a nice last minute gift for someone else.

Off I go to sew now.

Thank you for being so patient and I hope you dont have to wait so long for my next post. Until then..
