Sir Stampalot - A Krafty Affair

Good morning and a very Happy Mothering Sunday to all the Mums.

This month, at the Sir Stampalot challenge, our lovely leader Brenda set the Design Team two challenges. The first was shown at the start of the challenge and today it is time for us to reveal our second creations.

Brenda sent each team member this kit:-

"A Krafty Affair"
The papers varied for each DT but were from the same pack

Here's what I made from the kit:-

You can see what the other team members made with their kit at the Sir Stampalot Challenge blog.

Thank you Brenda for setting us these fun challenges this month.

Hugs and best wishes, Clare xx

Dress a Girl Around the World

Good afternoon,

I've had a productive morning:-

I've made a dress to send for the "Dress a Girl Around the World" scheme. I shall be sending this to Louise at Sew Scrumptious who arranges for them to be sent around the world. I've got enough fabric to make another two dresses as well.

This is from Louise's blog:-  We are making pillowcase dresses for charity. Come and join us!! 982 dresses received so far. 400 sent to Malawi. 120 to Kenya, 50 to India and 50 to Ghana 

My thanks to Annie and Jo for the inspiration.

Hugs and best wishes, Clare xx

Sir Stampalot March Challenge "Take Inspiration"

Good morning,

Our challenge at Sir Stampalot this month is:-

"Take Inspiration"

Our team leader Brenda, kindly sent the DT almost identical kits for us to make our DT projects this month. In fact, we were sent two kits to make two projects, but you will have to wait until the 18th to see our second project.

The challenge is to take inspiration from this month's DT projects.  Brenda has explained in more detail on the challenge blog.

Here's my first card 

using this "Swirls and Pearls" kit

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this month.

Hugs and best wishes, Clare xx

Penny Black and More at Allsorts "Springtime"

Good morning,

It's time for our March challenge at Penny Black and More at Allsorts and this month our theme is:-


For me, Springtime is confirmed when the daffodils start flowering, so I have chosen a stamp with daffodils, it's Penny Black 3822K called "Trumpet Vase".

As usual, we have some fabulous prizes on offer, and I hope you are able to join us.

Hugs and best wishes, Clare xx

Ready-Teddy-Go April Challenge

Good morning!

My apologies for being a day late with my April DT card for Ready-Teddy-Go.

Our challenge this month is "IT'S A WRAP"

sounds like something you might hear on a Hollywood film set doesn't it but not this time ... this is a challenge which is inspired by packaging!!!!!

Marketing companies worldwide are paid a small fortune to come up with striking and alluring packaging to make us part with our hard earned cash.  
Colour schemes and eye catching logos aren't just thrown together so . . . I would like to challenge folk to take their favourite product colour scheme and use it to make a card, a scrapbook page, a bag or box or indeed anything which also features a bear of course!

My inspiration was from Coca Cola packaging.

I hope you are inspired to join us this month.

Congratulations to our February winner Pauline.

Hugs and best wishes, Clare xx
