Anything but a card

Morning everyone,
I hope you are all managing to keep your feet on the ground with all these terrible high winds that we are having at the moment.

Today I would like to share a project I have made for our youngest daughter's 21st birthday next Sunday.
Our challenge over at INCY WINCY designs is anything but a card.

I decided to make a mini photo album to put three of her favourite photos in from her birthday celebrations.


She loves bears so the choice from the lovely selection of stamps we were given to play with from our fabulous sponsor Knk designs was an easy choice. The sentiment was from them too.

Here is what our sponsor says:
My small digital stamp store called K 'n K Designs was started to help pay for my Schnoodle's vet bills and general care. Many of the sets feature animals, and my Schnauzer/Poodle mix, Kolar, is the star of quite a number of them. There are sets for many different occasions, and even a couple freebies for you to enjoy! I'd be honored if you'd come by and say hello! :)

I used Nitwits Papers
The dies are from Go-Kreate
Swirls are made from Marianne Creatables die
Ribbon and key are from stash.
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
The image is coloured using Pro markers.

Enjoy the challenge and the rest of your day and the challenge.

First Christmas Card

Hi all,
I have been visiting people's blogs and seen that they have started their Christmas cards already. I have decided to do the same because this year - oops sorry last year was such a mad panic at the last minute for family cards. I have also been dying to make one of these candle cards. So here is my first candle card and Christmas card of 2012 using this amazing teddy bo image.


The paper is a hybrid made from a nitwit paper and a raspberry road one.
The gorgeous sparkly vellum was from my local craft store and is by docrafts
The poinsettias, trees and snowflakes are all from Marianne dies.
The little candle is one I bought as part of a set of four to go into a little lantern.

Enjoy your day

First Challenge of 2012

Morning all and Happy New Year,Those of us that were around in the 1980's will remember drawings of what life would be like in the year 2000. People were travelling around on hover boards and the buildings looked like something from Star Trek. However, life continues to be the same for most people, with maybe just a few more 'gadgets' to befuddle our brains.
Today is the first challenge of 2012 at Incy Wincy Designs and my first card as a D.T. member.
I was thrilled to be chosen for this sixth month stint.

Our Sponsor this week is

The images we had to choose from are fantastic, Nikki you are a very talented lady.


This digi stamp is called Little Puppy.
The papers are from a NitWit Collection called Tails and Wags.
The buttons and ribbon are from my crafty stash.
