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!

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

As You Like It - Favourite Non Card Project

I'm very late with my As You Like It Challenge project this week :-( The challenge is to make your favourite non card project. I'm very fond of tonic bags so I decided to use my new Kings Cross Case die. As a first attempt it's ok - but I can see some tweaks are needed!!

I've used one of the LOTV new release images too (stamps are due for release 15th May).

Hope you can join us xx

Sneak peek . . . .

I finally got to play with the soon to be released stamps from LOTV. The stamps are released on May 15th and contain all manner of cuteness - what else would you expect from Lili of The Valley :-)

I love these wedding bears - and they look lovely teamed up with this shaped card die from Studio Light.

Happy bears - what more could you ask for ;-)

Flowers or ribbon at As You Like It

Hmmm, it's practically impossible to choose between ribbon and flowers! The As You Like It challenge is to use either flowers or ribbon on your creation and explain your choice. I made two cards this week, one with flowers and one with ribbon, and chose this at the last minute! It's rare I make a card without flowers or ribbon -even better to combine the two ;-)

I've used ribbon on this one because I wanted to add this little tag I made. The stamps are from Polkadoodles and the die I've used for the background is from Crafter's Companion. 

I'm easing myself back into some colouring - a super Copic 4 class with Faye Wynn Jones certainly helped. The nerve conduction test results are back at the docs but the receptionist said I had to make an appointment because the results were all in 'doctor speak' so she couldn't tell me anything. She was so lovely it just made me laugh! 

Hope you get chance to join us with this challenge. xxxx

Favourite Colouring Medium at As You Like It.

The new challenge at As You Like It is your favourite colouring medium and why. I love my copics - they blend beautifully and there is a huge range of colours. I've done very little colouring over the past few weeks because my right hand has been super painful. Still, it's given me an opportunity to start using my LOTV Art pads and toppers :-)

Hope you can join us for this challenge x
