Daring Card Makers Challenge - A Sporting Chance

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme is

Sporting Chance

I've made a star shaped card from a sheet of A4 kraft card and then used the reverse of a graze box for the grass, X cut stars from the offcuts from making the card base and then made a football from embossing a piece of card  with a Sizzix folder and colouring it


Everything else is from a recycled Birthday card!  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Polkadoodle Challenge - Anything Goes or Christmas / Winter

It's time for a new Polkadoodle challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

The DT were challenged to make something Christmas / Winter so I've used this very cute Winnie Wings which I've coloured with Promarkers and a little stickles.  I found some vellum in my stash and carefully ripped it plus added some die cut snowflakes.  Charm and half pearls are from my stash.


I've used an embossing board that I got years ago as a magazine freebie to create the scored line around the edge of the card.  Embroidery thread also from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

This week, we don't have a sponsor but there is a little blog candy prize up for grabs.  I've used a no longer available cute Jellypark image for a teacher thank you card which I've coloured with Promarkers and then added to the card blank with foam pads.


I've scored a border around the edge of the card and added a little ruler and apple charm along with bakers twine from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Daring Cardmakers Challenge - July Inspirational Elements

As it's the first Friday of the month and time for a new Daring Cardmakers challenge, it is an elemental inspirational theme today.  And the inspiration can be drawn from:


You just need to use three of the elements in your creation.  I've used the texture, colour yellow, the round segmented pattern and the bead like pattern.

I've embossed the card blank with a Sizzix folder and added the yellow ribbon and wooden beads that I found in my stash (I was actually looking for something else at the time!)  The flower I've layered up from various ones I found lurking in the bottom of a box and added a button and ribbon to the centre to hide the hole (I must have recycled it!)


Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Cute Card Thursday:  Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiment Designs:  Bright Colours
Incy Wincy Designs:  Flowers
Use Your Stuff:  Monchromatic

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 27 - Kinda Cute

It's Friday so time for another Colour Crazy Challenge!  The theme as always is

Anything Goes

And the sponsor this week is Kinda Cute.  I've used both images provided (because I couldn't decide which one to use!) and first up is Boy Playing Video Game which I've coloured with a combination of Promarkers and watercolour pencils.  Papers are from a no longer available collection from Funky Hand and the sentiment is a magazine freebie.


And I've used Mermaid Monster, coloured with watercolour pencils and I've used Echo Park splash papers plus waxed coloured cord and buttons from my stash.


Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Sundae

Something great for the hot weather we are experiencing!  I've used Sundae from Dr Digi and coloured it up with Promarkers plus a bit of glitter glue.

I've scored a line around the edge of the card blank for a bit of interest.  Other than that - it's finished!
