Tuesday Throwdown design team post-Facets of Crafting

Hi all!!

I am here with a gem of a challenge-literally!!
At Tuesday Throwdown we want to see your projects with gems, beads, sequins etc-anything with facets!

I have an image from A Day For Daisies and have used some Martha Stewart glitter stars on top. The cupcake die is tattered lace (bought for me by my lovely mum)! The flower papers were freebie ones from ages ago and the tea party ones are Dovecraft. I have printed the cupcake twce and cut out the daisy on top and have glued it on top of the glitter to make it look 3 dimensional. I have coloured my image with promarkers.

Pop on over HERE to join in and win! Looking forward to seeing your interpretation of this!

Thank you for any comments you may make!

CRAFT challenge blog-Recycling card

Hi all!!
Today at CRAFT challenge blog the theme is recycling! So you can reuse something you already have or like I have done create a recycling card! 
I have recycled the image having already made a card with it before. I have used some papers that were in my stash and also an old stamp. The stamp is a Jayne Nestorenko one (hope I have spelt her name correctly!). It is a fab set-has a great tractor on it!
The bin and recycling box are from a set from Little Claire that was part of their members set one month last year. I just cut out the Imagine That flower image and put it on top of the bin. It is a pre coloured image but as part of this set there are blank images to colour yourself.

The prizes are as follows:

$12 to spend in the shop

$10 to spend in the shop

Thank you for any comments you may make and hopefully you can join us at CRAFT challenge blog.
