I am writing this post a few weeks ago as all being well I will have a new baby-therefore no crafting for a bit!

The theme for the challenge at Creative card Crew is sea/beach.

The image I have used is from one of our sponsors-Aurora wings.
The other sponsor is The Scrapping Center.
Both have $15 vouchers to give away.

Now my card-I have used this mermaid image and thought about showing her through a port hole.
I cut out some gold Kanban mirri card into a circle and then stuck acetate between filled with Martha Stewart star glitter.

I'm not sure where the paper came from-it was in my stash.

I coloured the mermaid using Spectrum noirs.

Hope you like it and enter the challenge with a creation of your own!
Thank you for looking.

second beach card!

This is my second card made using the Hunkydory beach set-I still have more toppers left so this won't be the last of it!

The flower was a freebie from a mgazine which I wet, scrunched up and left to dry. When dry I layered it up.
The buttons are Docrafts.

I would love to have a little beach hut like this one-even a garden shed like this would be nice!!

I would like to enter it in the following challenges:

Hi all!!
I have made a card that is not for the design team! As I have been on maternity leave I have been adding to my stash especially on the christmas card front! I like to be ahead and prepared!!
Not long left now until the baby comes so sadly I might not get crafting as much for a bit.
It was my birthday yesterday and I got some new craft bits!! Exciting!

My latest card is a cheat really-I don't always do sticking things on but that's how it goes when you're having a bit of a clear out! Trying to use the 'bit box' up!!

It's from a Hunkydory sheet. The stripes are done with poppy pro markers and I have stuck some Kraftcards candi on.

I would like to enter it in the following:

thank you for looking and for any comments made!

Mr Snowman

Time to make a Christmas card! And I had to chose the masculine theme at Creative Card Crew to do it on didn't I just to make it hard!
I decided to man mine up with a moustache!

As I have said the theme is masculine.
The sponsors with the prizes are Mariannes designs and QKR stampede.

Now onto my card!
I have used an image from QKR stampede called Christmas Cheer.
I have coloured him with promarkers and the papers are from my stash.
The silver frame is from Create and Craft which I have embossed with dots.
The stars and moustache are die cut from blue mirri card using Memory Box dies.

Sorry about the photo-the paper is quite shiny and hard to get a good picture.

Hope you can make a masculine card to enter and win one of the fab prizes!
Than k you for looking!
