Catch up

It's a game I seem to be playing a lot just lately! However, I've managed to combine a couple of cards with a couple of challenges again and the first up is the Daring Cardmakers dare from last Friday. It was Jo's turn to set the dare and here is what she said "Jo here this week.... My Majestic theme is quite a simple one.... I would like you to incorporate a Crown (or Tiara) somewhere upon your card! Have fun and I can't wait to see what you create :)"

Here is my cardPapers are 3 Bugs in a Rug and the numbers and crown were cut by hand. I have some large wooden letters and numbers I bought when I worked at school and use those as templates.

The next card is a Page Plans template which unfortunately I can't copy and paste.

I think the paper is K & Co but I'm not 100% sure. The image is by Pixiedust on ebay (the link is on my side bar) and I coloured it with water colour pencils. The sentiment was made on the lap top and the fish is a rub on.

Another card for my brother

Papers are K & Co again and Colorbok. The sentiments are rub ons by MSE and the wording was cut by hand, again using my wooden letters. (I should really use the Robo!!)

This next card is for the friend of the mother of the girl I made the giraffe card for (if you understand all that :)) The mum was impressed with the card I made for her daughter and asked her to order the card as follows, "Can you do a lady with shopping bags and a glass (and/or bottle) of wine please." This was interpreted by the daughter as "she’s an alcoholic who likes shopping!" LOL Anyway, this is what I came up with................

The image and backing paper is by Pink Petticoat and is one of the first downloads I ever bought. I painted her with H2Os and added a bit of Stickles glitter glue here and there. The numbers were cut by hand, the bag is Quickutz and the sentiment is pc generated. The small sentiment on the numbers is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis

I have another commission to do but it's one of those that requires some thinking about! In the meantime I'm going to clean and rearrange the furniture in my conservatory!

TTFN.

Hi Jackie - lovely to hear from you....

Love this card...the paper is scrummy and looks fab with the image/your colouring...

I'm popping some downloads on my other blog at the moment, so I'm sure this little one will feature soon...that's when 'words' become 'actions' that is..

Hope things are good with you...xx

Well you’ve been busy again Jackie, what a lovely collection of cards and I love the way you’ve used the crown on the 40th one.
