This weeks theme at CCT is Splish Splash. I have used another of my old stamps, this one is from a Woodware set. I have coloured the image with Sakura watercolour pencils and added Glossy Accents to the bubbles and a little bit of glitter to the water. I used Nestabilities to cut out the image and mat layer and a Stampin Up stamp and matching punch for the sentiment.

This weeks theme at CCT is All Boy, we'd like to see your male themed cards. I have made another CAS card using yet another old Penny Black stamp. I have coloured the image with Copics and added a die cut button and trim from a Die-Namics set of dies.

This weeks challenge at CCT is Floral Delight, perfect for those last minute Mother's day cards. I am still going through my old stamps and found this one from Hero Arts. I have coloured the image with Copics and added 3 little gems. I also added the grass at the bottom of the flowers, not too sure if it was a good idea or not. The sentiment is by Penny Black.
Well the injection seems to have helped slightly with my knee and hopefully things will improve further throughout the week. We had a nice anniversary and went out for a lovely lunch at a local pub.

This weeks challenge at CCT is It's A Wild World and we'd love to see your cards with animals on. I have used another of my very old High Hopes stamps called Ace. I coloured the image with Copics and added a Penny Black sentiment. I mounted the image onto some Kraft card and put some Glossy Accents on his eyes. Another very quick card!
I hope you'll be able to join us this week as we have another fab prize. I have treated myself to a couple of Penny Black stamps which I have been after for a while so hopefully they will arrive in time for the weekend as I'm having an injection in my knee on Friday and I've been told to rest it for a couple of days so it looks like been a crafting weekend, not exactly what I had planned for my 22nd wedding anniversary though!

This weeks theme at CCT is What A Gem. I have made a very quick and simple card using an old Penny Black stamp which I have had for about 13 years! I stamped the image with Memento and coloured it with Copics. The sentiment is another Penny Black stamp and I added some gems to the flower centers.
I hope you'll be able to join in this weeks challenge as we have another great prize.

It's Thursday again so time for another CCT challenge which this week is Lots of Love, so it's just in time for all those Valentines cards. I have made another tag, I seem to make more tags than cards these days. I cut the tag with a Tim Holtz die and used Recollections papers. I cut the hearts with another Tim Holtz die out of the paper and then twice more out of chipboard so they are quite thick. I inked all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added Glossy Accents to the small heart so it's nice and shiny. The tag is finished off with a piece of twine and crinkle ribbon and I also machine stitched around the DP. Hopefully hubby won't look at my blog this week as I thought this would be perfect for his Valentine's card.

The challenge at CCT this week is Something New. I have used some new goodies which I got recently to make my tag. The stamp and tag are by Prima and I have used some old papers from my stash. The cute little heart die cut is also new. The image is coloured with Copics and I have added some paper flowers and pearls.

I have machine stitched around the tag and distressed the edges with Antique Linen Distress Inks, the flower is cut with a Tim Holtz die and the Sprawling Ferns are a Magnolia DooHickey die.

Happy New Year, I hope you had a great Christmas.
This weeks challenge at CCT is Banish The Blues. I have used some very old stamps for my card which I have coloured with Copics. The papers are Kaisercraft and the swirl is a Tonic die which I have cut down. Apologies for the poor photo but the weather is vile here today and its about the best I could manage.
I hope you can join in this weeks challenge as we have a fab prize from Bunny Zoe Crafts.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got lots of nice pressies. We have a nice and easy theme at CCT this week, Anything Goes. I have painted a wooden 'Love' ornament with acrylic paint and then stamped a few Stampin Up images onto it. The butterfly is a X Cut punch which I have covered with Fran-tage and I have added a few paper flowers. I'm really pleased with how this has turned out especially as it only cost £2 to buy.
