Colours of fall

Happy Saturday to you all,
Today starts the new challenge #152 at Let's Craft and Create ...colours of fall. With us just moving into spring, it is a little difficult to think of Fall or Autumn, be I managed anyway. The team have made some gorgeous projects for you to see and you have a whole month to join in the fun.

I am needing a number of birthday cards, as I am donating them to an old aged home for the residents, as some are just forgotten, so this card is ideal for one of the male residents.

I used paper from my stash for the first layer and then a piece from the same block that I embossed.

I took one of my very old stamps and stamped it 3 times, used some distress inks to give a bit of colour, cut them out and  put them down with foam pads for a bit of 3 D.

For the sentiment I used a die cut.

Will enter some challenges:

Brown Sugar  #294...Anything goes
Colour Crazy  #39.....Anything goes
Crafting with an Attitude #56...Anything goes

Thanks for visiting and see you again soon.
Love, Ursula

Using extra layers

Hello friends,
After a long absence, due to travelling in Europe and spending time with our families, it is now back home and time to get on with a normal life.

This month the challenge theme at Let's Craft and Create is to use extra layers. The challenge is for the whole month, so I do hope you will join us. For inspiration the DT have made some lovely cards, so do hop on over see what they have to show. There is also a small prize to be won.


For my card I used the following:

Paper: Light blue cardstock and matted a piece from a paper bloc of Joy Crafts..Afternoon tea

I used a Joy crafts die for the next layer. Cut it and placed it on the side.
The teapot and cup were cut from some scrap pieces in my stash and these are also Joy Craft dies,

Stamped the sentiment and finished it with some pearls.

I will be back to enter this in some challenges.

Thank you for visiting and will see you all again soon.
Love Ursula

Something for the men this time

Hello to everyone,

We are almost halfway through the year and in June we always think of the men..... in many countries Father's day is celebrated in June.... so the theme at   Let's Craft and Create  this month is You're the man.

There are lovely cards made by the DT for inspiration and a prize as well, so do please come and play at our challenge this month.

I decided on a birthday card using paper from my stash which is very slowly diminishing......  I have decided this year not to buy any new patterned paper as I have so much

The paper is from a very old pack of Forever Friends..The good life.  Matted onto burgundy cardstock

Cut a tag from the same cardstock and attached it with a button and some cord....keeping the sailing theme.

The sentiment is also from an old packet of diecut greeting tags.

Finished off with brass brads in the corners.

I will enter it in a few challenges.

Crafty Cardmakers #235 ...Masculine
Dream Valley challenges #203 ...only boys allowed
Dragonfly Dreams ...For a man/boy

Beautiful butterflies

Good morning to you all,
I can't believe that is such a long time since I have been on here, but I guess I just don't blog too much maybe need to change that a bit.

Anyway today a new challenge is starting at Let's Craft and Create. It is always anything goes and this month you can add beautiful butterflies as an option and possibly even win a lovely prize.
The DT have made such gorgeous cards so I do hope you will pop in for some inspiration.

For my card I used a KaiserCraft sheet from an old selection with a butterfly border.

The butterfly is a rubber stamp from a local supplier and one of my first stamps I bought many years back. I coloured it with a selection of inks, and added a bit of glitter then cut it out.

The sentiment was found on the internet and printed on my pc. I cut it out with a Nellie Snellen MFD and added pearls to finish.

I will enter the following challenges:

Crafting by Designs April ...Anything goes
Crafty Creations ...#387 ...Anything goes

Let's Craft and Create with a sketch

Good morning,

After a lengthy absence due to holiday and very erratic internet connection, I would like to showcase my card for this month's challenge at Let's Craft and Create with the theme use a sketch....any sketch.

The sketch that I used is from   The Outlawz Wednesday challenge

This is my card and my take on the sketch.


I used a green cardstock and onto this I matted cream card that I had embossed with a very old cuttlebug folder.

The ovals were cut with a Nellie Snellen MFD

The butterfly and the other elements are from  Kaiser Craft ...."Provincial" sticker sheet

No colouring to do as I am having a bit of a problem with colouring.

Please do go and see  the projects that the other teamies have made for inspiration and be sure to enter before 30th November to stand a chance to win the prize.

Thanks for visiting and hope to see you soon. Take care.

Love, Ursula
