Robyn's Fetish Challenge # 170 : Friendship card with sentiment on the front

Good afternoon,

Am so sorry to be so late posting this week but we had a lot of storms in our area and our internet connection has been damaged and I was without computer since nearly a week. How did we do before computers and internet?????? I can't remember and tell you it's a real nightmare!!!!!

Anyway, am back and this week at Robyn's Fetish Challenge and this week we are sponsored by Jellypark and the winner will be able to choose 2 images from the Jellypark Store with the exception of Fundraiser images.

I have coloured my image with my Spectrum Noir in the following shades : 100/183/37/35/12/120/45/FS2/FS3/104/38/175/43/14/24/74/99/91 and 92 as well as my glaze and gelly roll Sakura pens. I have also used my Promarkers in Pear Green, Honeycomb and Vanilla and have also used a bit of "Shimmer" Decorative Chalks.

For the backrounds I have used some silver mirri-board card that I have embossed with my Spellbinder Embossability "Music".

For the sentiment I have used "Happy Birthday" in French and I found it at TLC, and I have cut it with Label 20 from Spellbinders.

And here is my final card.

Enjoy your week and don't forget......KEEP CALM AND CRAFT ON!!!!

Oh! I do Like To be beside the sea......

Good afternoon,

What a hot day again here in France.....But am not going to complain after all the cold and bad weather we had during spring...... Anyway, it's so hot that I would like to be beside the sea..... Which is this month challenge at Clarity Stamp Challenge.

I bought a few new stamps a few weeks ago, and had no time to play with them so the challenge was the best time to play a bit....Lol!!!!

First of all I want to show you my shaped card open, as I think it looks a bit like those lovely little beach houses. Ok the flag is missing.....

I have used some "Mary dee Gruenig" Blending box and a sponge to colour the sides of the card. For the top, I have used "Shades of Carribean" and for the bottom, "Shades of Turquoise".

On the bottom of the card, I have use Deck chair, and on the top I have used Row of Beach Huts. And you can find both stamps here

I have than coloured them with my Spectrum Noir in the following shades :
12/100/35/86/84/38/68/65/24/37/171/178/15/163/183 and 74. For the sentiment I have used my Alphabet Set.

And here is my "final" card.

Robyn's Fetish Challenge # 167 : "Anything but a card"

Good evening,

Am sorry to be late but only back since a few hours from a trip to my family in Alsace to bring my mum's ashes, so I now take time to tell you all about our new challenge at Robyn's Fetish Challenge.

This week we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish herself, and the winner will be able to choose 3 images from her store.

For my project, i have decided to go fro something a bit different, I have never done.

I have made a "writing set" pocket.

I have used some light brown thick card to make the pocket, add some pattern golden mirri-board I had, and add my digi. I have coloured in with my Spectrum Noirs in the following shades: 163/48/100/104/96 and 91. As well as my promarkers in Pastel yellow, Blossom and vanilla.

I used a piece of ribbon, to shut the pocket.
In the inside, I can put 5 enveloppes and 5 coordinate small cards....But you won't be able to see them as I have forgotten to take a picture.....Blond, busy girl.....Lol!!!!

So come and join us, and remember that till 31st July there are some Christmas sale at Robyn's Fetish Shop,
