As You Like It - Favourite Text

This week at As You Like It our challenge is to tell us what your favourite method of adding text to a card is! I can tell you that after countless stamping disasters I'm very fond of a shop bought sentiment! I can't tell you the number of times I've spent hours on a card only to stamp a sentiment in a haphazard and wonky manner!!!

I've used a super cute little craftwork cards sentiment on this card :-) You can find the sweet little gnome digi on etsy here

I hope that you get the opportunity to join in with this challenge.

It's Pink and Green or Orange and Blue at As You Like It

Over at the As You Like It Challenge blog our theme for the next couple of weeks is Pink and Green or Orange and Blue. As you may know (I may have mentioned it!) I have a strong aversion to orange so that was never going to happen. I therefore chose pink and green! It's also one of my favourite colour combinations as it's super versatile.

I've used one of the new LOTV snowmen digis and some Hunkydory dotty paper. The poinsettia is also from Hunkydory (Donna Mosley keeps using this die and it always looks amazing on her cards so it climbed to the top of my 'need' list).

I'm having a printer trauma - it won't take my copic card so I'm using crappy thin card that won't blend. I may be in a small strop!!!

Favourite Flower at As You Like It

The challenge this fortnight at As You Like It is to use your favourite flower - and tell us why it's your favourite. I don't really have a favourite flower (mainly because I don't know what most of the are - I could spot a rose or a poppy and then I'm stumped!) So, my card contains pink flowers because I love all pink flowers!! When my husband sends me flowers he asks the florist to use pinks and purples and NO yellows or oranges. Sorry - I loathe yellow and orange!

So, pink flowers it is!

I love these polkadoodle flowers - love the squiggles and doodles too!

Something for Baby at As You Like It

Over at As You Like It we would like to see something you've made for a baby and tell us why you've made it!

I made this baby card for a Grandma to be who loved the LOTV image and wanted something 'very pink'! Sounded good to me!

Summer or Winter colours at As You Like It

The challenge at As You Like It for the next fortnight is Summer or Winter colours (and why you chosen that option).

I decided to go for lots of bright summery colours mainly because I'm so sick of grey miserable weather! This card was the Kit and Clowder May '19 markers class and it comes highly recommended!

I have, at last, got an appointment at the hand clinic today and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they have options that don't involve surgery!

Hugs xx

Favourite stamp brand over at As You Like It.

The challenge for the next couple of weeks over at As You Like It is to make a card using an image from your favourite stamp brand - and tell us why it's your favourite.

My favourite is Lili of the Valley and has been since I started crafting over ten years ago. I love the super cute images, they're a pleasure to colour and are always super popular.

I love this one from the new release :-)

Hope you get an opportunity to join us xx

His or Hers at As You Like It

Over at As You Like It this fortnight we are hosting a His or Hers challenge. Do you like making girls cards or do you favour making those tricky cards for boys?

Unsurprisingly I prefer making girls cards. There's just soooo much more you can add to a girl card. Ribbon, pearls, gems, spangles, feathers - oooh so much froth!!

I love this Tonic 'A Good Year' bottle die - especially in this beautiful satin red card. Topped off with this Stampingbella stamp (one of my faves).

I hope you can join us for this challenge xx
