Right here we go, this is for the first bi-monthly ATC swap for the sbs18 girls that has been set up by Deena... this time the theme was to make an ATC using 2 paper punches but they couldn't make a border for your ATC... i only have 2 paper punches and they are little ones from the kiddy craft section in tesco so i had to use bunnies and ducks as part of the background. I've used lime green, bright blue and red inks for the background, blue paper punched shapes and a marvy coloured in image of hamish and now this will be winging it's way off to Deena some time next week :)

I really like this card, not bad for another quickie... right so this is for 2 of this weeks challemges... Cute card thrusday where the theme is 'animals only- no people allowed' and Dutch dare where the challenge is to use something from the 7kidscollegefund store... My animal is a set of PB hedgies, from the Every Which Way set of stamps from the 7kids store, coloured in with watercolour pencils. The white backing paper i decorated using some of my love stamps with gold and black ink.. I've used a heart button and wooden love envelope as the main embellishments and 6 white gems to finish off the other corners :)
Here's my first post it note keychain, dead simple and quick to make but very useful... i've seen these on so many blogs i don't know who to credit for the idea, but i've changed my sizes from all the ones i've seen as i couldn't get hold of the rectangle post its so had to use the little square ones instead..
I've used; 1 keyring, 2 felt flowers, white gems, little yellow post its and a piece of flower card 5.7cmx11.4cm

This weeks SBS18 challenge has been set by Deena and she chose the theme 'how does your garden grow'.... so i made an ATC... the backing paper is pearlescent (sent in a bundle from donna), 2 silver skeleton leaves, 2 card flowers and 2 flower brads... i coloured the edge of the ATC in with a lilac marvy pen as white looked too bland
So here's my design team piece for this weeks ABC challenge challenge... C is for charms... so to eb a little different (haha or just being me some of u may say) i decided to make a charm bracelet instead of a card, as i love making jewellery... so here's my hematite hearts and stars charm bracelet... hopefully this inspires u a little so go have a go at the challenge! :)

So you'll need: 2 pieces of 12x12 card, glue and embellishments
- trim one of the 12x12s down to 19.5cm (long) by 22.2cm (width)
- divide the length into equal lengths on 6.5cm
- divide the width into 3 parts; 6.5cm, 9.3cm and 6.5cm
- score the lines
- measure and draw out 1cm flaps on the four corner squares from the inside of the square
- cut out the rest of the corner square for each corner
- fold the sides up and glue the tabs to the inside of the rectangle sides
- trim the other piece of 12x12 to 21cm (long) and 23.5cm (width)
- divide the length into three equal sections of 7cm
- divide the width into three sections; 7cm, 9.5cm and 7cm
- repeat steps 5-7 for this piece of card
- decorate as required
There we go it's as easy as that :)
