Pattie's Creations Challenge #113 - Anything Goes

I have been busy lately making cards and doing
some scrapbooking, so no time to add all this to
my blog.  Have a couple of new Prima Dolls stamps,
so hope to use these soon.  Also using my CraftArtist2
for my scrapbooking, which is great fun. Hope to
put up more material soon, so do keep on visiting.

This card I made for a challenge at Pattie's Creations
- "Anything Goes"

Also entered at Sister Act Card Challenge #119

My First Tag

This is my first try at making a tag. I found lovely
background paper and enjoyed stamping the doll
and "dressing it up."   The tag is also partly
mixed media, as I also used gesso and molding
paste on it, as well as spray ink.  I have just
received my order for two more Prima Dolls -
more fun!

Three Cards Using CraftArtist2

I love using this programme. I have bought a few digi kits
but lots are given free too.  I think knowing basics of PS
helps me to understand CraftArtist more and to know
what I can get it to do for me.  I certainly still have loads
to learn, but it's fun at the same time.

Noa is 15

Following is the scrapbook page I made for my 15 year old
granddaughter.  I added some mixed media elements to the

Birthday Card For Shanee 12

My niece is soon to be twelve - here it is a special birthday for girls -
it will be her Bat Mitzvah - she will be a young lady.  Usually kids of
this age have a party and some are lucky enough to go on a trip
abroad.  Here is the card I made for her.

Challenge #59 Tic Tac Toe - CAS on Sunday

I chose Birthday, Butterfly and Ribbon for my card.

When I have time I like to take part in challenges.
Recently I was in the top 3 of a challenge where
over 300 cards were submitted, so I was very
pleased about that.   Having a hobby like this
certainly leaves no time to be bored.

A Wedding Card

Just love this image.  Wanted to make a CAS card, so
didn't add layering or lots of bling (which I also love).
I added just a touch of colour to the image.
