July challenge at The Crafting Cafe

This month's challenge over at The Crafting Café is Feeling Fruity and our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine digi stamps. I chose to work with the image called Cider Apple and picked some colours that I don't work with very often.

I coloured the image with some soft pencils for a change and made an easel card with my scalloped and plain oval dies. hope you like it and would love you to join in our challenge this month. Your project can feature fruit or use fruity colours.  

A couple of commissions

This week has been quite a busy one in crafting terms. My new kit came from Docrafts featuring some lovely new collections to work with over the next couple of months. I have also been working on a couple of commissions.

The first was for my friend at work to give to her husband who is a keen fisherman. I used a Pinflair Background Artist image and then blended my distress inks to add colour. My friend loved the card and I was really pleased with how it turned out.

My second card was a Wedding Acceptance with the colours for the wedding being pale sage green, a bit of a challenge, you may think. I was lucky enough, however, to have this lovely lace paper from the new Docrafts Botanicals range. I just added the wording, some ribbons and a flower charm and  job done.

Am now off to create a few more projects for my second demo of the weekend. A woman's work and all that.
