Festive Friday Challenge #12

Hello everyone!

Well I have some exciting news! I have joined a Design Team. Are you shocked? LOL! I’m pretty excited to get back on track with regular blogging and being a part of a design team really helps with that. I have joined the DT on Festive Friday Challenges which is hosted by the lovely Nicole Derendorf. The idea behind Festive Friday Challenge is to do Christmas cards all year unless a different season comes about like Easter or Mother’s Day. So just when I joined the next challenge was about Easter. Just lately I have seen the cutest little Easter project ideas and I saw a little sunnyboy container or sour cream container if you live in America that resembled a carrot. I just had to have a play

Aren’t they the cutest?!

I decided I didn’t want people to have to tear them apart to get into them and decided to use a scallop circle over the top to close it. Here are some close-ups

One half was attached securely with sticky strip on one side and then for the back I added a velcro dot.

So simple and easy. I added cute little mini Lindt bunny and carrot inside. For this year they were my children’s Teacher’s gifts. They loved them.

Anyway be sure to jump on in and have a play with the Festive Friday Challenges and you could be in the running for a random prize! Woohoo!

Anyway thanks for dropping by!

Hello everyone!

I still have heaps of retreat creations to share…so don’t go anywhere. I managed to play with a set that I thought wouldn’t interest me. It was another challenge set by Mads. It was Make a card with a stamp set that pushes our boundaries, something that isn’t normally your style. I chose Everybunny for a couple of reasons. Watercolouring an image has never been one of my stronger suits and I don’t do Easter Cards. I have made one before for a workshop, but I have never made one to give to someone else. For the challenge we could earn extra points if we used our least favourite colour. Well I forego those extra points and used my favourite colour,  Calypso Coral. LOL!

This card is actually prettier than it looks in this photo, but you het the general idea. It is probably one of my favourite cards from the weekend and I will now be buying the Everybunny Stamp Set! LOL!

Thanks for dropping by!
