I was at a crop yesterday for the first time ever, was a bit daunting because I didn't know anyone but I soon got over that and got cardmaking.
I made 3 cards and coloured a few image for other cards so I thought I would show you the cards I made. They are all done with Sugar Nellie stamps as I only brought a couple of stamps with me and didn't have time to stamp some before I went there and I used my scraps that I had left over from cards I have made lately as I couldn't take any 12x12's because I don't have a fancy bag to carry them in and they would of had to be folded up and would of ended up ruined.
I must first apologise for the poor quality of the photos, I took them quite late and they didn't turn out very well.
The first I am entering in the Daring Cardmakers challenge which is "Cos I'm a woman". The card can be any theme as long as it's made for a woman. I could of entered any of the 3 I made because they are all for women but I have just picked the first one I uploaded because I couldn't choose which one to use.
I can't remember who makes this paper but I have used it on another card which I put on my blog a while ago. The image is Sugar Nellie's picking apples but you already knew that. I made the scallop circle with the cricut which was at the crop, well actualy someone else did it for me because I have never used a cricut before and had no idea how to lol. The flowers are cardology and one I punched with a punch at the crop so no idea of the make. Ric rac is from John Lewis and everything else from my stash.
The next card I am entering in the Ooh-la-la creations challenge which is to use buttons/and or brads.
I haven't used any buttons but I have used a brad on my flower. I'm not sure where the papers are from as I got them from Donna, I'm not doing very well here am I? lol I know the image is Sugar Nellie's chick a dee though :)
The flowers are a mix of cardology and ones I made myself out of scraps and filed the edges.
Ribbon, spacer,gem and charm are all from my stash.
My final card is not for any challenge but I thought I would show it anyway.
I know I have done a card with this image and these papers before not long ago but they are not the same and I just wanted to use up all my scraps.
I wont go telling you about the papers because I have already told you all about them in a previous post and you know the image. The ribbon is from a local haberdashery she has th emost amazing selection of ribbons and lace and I spend ages choosing what I want. The owner even knows me by my first name now because I am in there so often lol. The lovely pearls were a present from a friend. I love them because they just peel off and stick, no messing about with glue :)
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read today. I appreciate each and every one of you. My counter is nearing the 1000 mark so I am going to have to get some candy put together soon. Don't know what it will be yet but I will make sure it's something nice. I know there is a stamp plate to be thrown in with whatever else I decide to give away. So keep coming to visit me and help me hit that 1000 mark quicker :)
