A new month so time for a new challenge over at A Perfect Time To Craft Challenge Blog. As always this is anything goes and this month our sponsors are Dr Digi's and a new sponsor Stampers Delight.
This image is Deirdre's day off by Dr Digi, I love the humour in Dr Digi's images and so felt it would be appropriate to put Deirdre in a comical place which her sunbed and cocktail.
The inspiration for todays card came from lesson 4 of the Sandy Allnock Copic Enchantment class, it is a slimline sun set with a log in the foreground and a forest in the background. I felt these drunks gnomes may not be able to see the sunset but it would create a fab backdrop for them,
Since I first saw this badger with his top hat I have imaged him as Hugh Jackman in the Greatest showman. I have no idea why as I am not implying that Hugh Jackman looks anything like a badger. I think it is the hat. Anyway back to card making!!!
I feel like he was the circus master and so felt he needed his own big top. I have tried to shape this as a big top in the past with disastrous results, so have decided to just create it as a scene card. As you will be sick of me going on about it is Teen Self Esteem Awareness week and so I paired it with the Here's to you sentiment as we are all the star in our show
So my Instagram account growth has become very stagnant and in an attempt to help drive traffic I have been trying to do reels as well as my usual daily card. The problem that I have is that my cards are done so far in advance that I have no video footage left on my phone to make the reels. So have made a couple of quick cards to facilitate this. Here is one of them
We once stayed in a lodge owned by the Forestry Commission and they had a rubber duck race on the river that flowed through the forest. It was great fun, made even more hilarious by the organisers mad Labrador pup which swum down the river with the rubber ducks and every time it caught one it throw it out of the river, onto the shore. The organiser was charging down the bank lobbing them back in. This card made me laugh when I remembered the race
So when I was approached by Kelly from Kelly Creates and asked to participate in a hop for raising awareness of bullying, I agreed but was totally stuck on what to do. A quick google search told me that the anti-bullying alliance in the UK hold a national anti bullying week every November which is themed, however this years theme is not released until May, so I could not even go with that for inspiration.
I rummaged through my stamps and came across the Be Your Own Hero stamp set by Stamping Bella and so decided to go with supportive inspiration instead
I am so excited to finally be able to tell you all that Amy from Crafty Purple Frog has asked me to join her design team on a permanent basis. So I get to play with not only her fabulous releases but all the other amazing brands she stocks from around the world. So what better card to debut with but one that states In Celebration of this day...
I always looked at the Stamping Bella oddballs stamps in awe but never really sure what I would do with them but as my colouring skills and confidence in creating scenes has increased I find myself drawn to them.
