From owl of us

Welcome to this weeks challenge with the Crazies team.
With Frances issuing the last challenge for March.
Yesterday was my birthday, as most of you know one of my favourite things are owls... so for our challenge this week include an owl on your card. If you don't have an owl no problem, any feathered creature will do.

I recently purchased some Art Impression stamps on sale, just in time for this challenge. It has been some time since I made a popup using Karen Burniston designed dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs
and on the front I have used the stitched fishtail dies.

I have a dream

This week on Crazy for challenges Frances is our hostess for March.

According to the days of the year web site, Thursday 2nd March was world book day. For our challenge this week take your inspiration for making your card from a book.... adults or children's book whatever your prefer.




For my inspiration I used the story Tangled, a Disney take on Rapunzel. Even though it is a movie, it is also available in book form.



Supplies: Penny Black stamps and dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Pear Art

Welcome to this weeks challenge with the CCEE team, hostess Lynn has this months challenges.

In honor of "Old Stuff" Day, make a card or project making use of some of the earliest stamps in your collection, or make use of old supplies in your stash. A fabulous vintage image would also be great for this challenge!


Along time ago, before we had fancy designer paper, we had to create our own backgrounds with ink, this technique is called direct to paper, where I just lightly brushed the distressed ink pads over the paper. I have used one of my favourite dies to create a pull card.


The stamp I have used was in the early days of unmounted stamps where the rubber was not attached to wood and you had to purchase a mounting system, this one used the acrylic blocks and a Velcro strips and a loop piece that was attached to the back if the stamp with double sided tape.
