The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Well,I think Josh – Apple Tree is a good thing ūüėČ He’s by Crafty Sentiments Designs¬†and he’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.Some white gel pen highlights have been added and his wellies have been given a coating of 3D Crystal Lacquer.

Here’s a shot of the shine :

I nearly picked some different papers but when sifting through I came across these.Just had to be!

A strip of jute/hessian ribbon,some wooden leaves and,for good measure,a wooden ladybird embellish the card in keeping with the country feel I was trying to create.I thought the sentiment quite fitting.Judging by the plaster on his cheek I’m guessing it covers an injury from another escapade.Figuring this little guy lives life to the full!

As soon as I saw this owl image in the Teacher’s Pet set by Deedee’s Digis¬†I just knew I had to make some kind of book style card.The idea for this one came from here at Card-Making-Magic.Of course,this¬†pre-coloured image is one of a few images you get (in different formats),along with a couple of papers and several sentiments!Great value ūüôā I added a bookplate die cut containing one of the sentiments attached with eyelets,a baker’s twine tied paperclip and an extra large eyelet.This is for one of my DS2’s teachers and it’s his last year at Primary School before he starts¬†‘Big School’ in September.It’s also kind of an end of an era for us as he’s¬†our youngest.He has 2 part time teachers and a teaching assistant.So I guess I will using the rest of this fab kit to make a couple more of these style cards ūüėČ

A Dino-mite day :)

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Doodle Pantry as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Aren’t these just the most cute fun dinosaurs you could wish to meet?!They’re from the Tiny Dinos set by Doodle Pantry.As with all their sets you get so much in them¬†ūüėĬ†Here I’ve printed the dinos onto some of the patterned papers included with them.I’d already printed them onto card as I wanted extra stability once they were fussy cut.Their eyes and the spots on the stegosaurus have been paper pieced.The spots have even been done so with spotty paper ¬†ūüėČ I die cut some hills for them to play on and the sentiment,which is also included,has been cut with a stitching edged die.A couple of eyelets have been used to embellish.The dinos and the sentiment have been popped up on foam tape for dimension.Yeah,I know I’ve backed the scene with white rather than a sky blue.That’s for more contrast against the kraft and the card the sentiment is mounted on ūüôā
