The theme at CCT this week is Stripes. I have made my card with Tilda papers and die cuts. The only other things I added are lace, ribbon, pearls and flowers. The leaf die cut is Tonic and I have edged the papers with Distress Inks.


We had a great time in Riga, its a lovely place with lots of interesting museums to visit and fabulous food.

CCT Razzle Dazzle

This weeks theme at CCT is Razzle Dazzle. I've made a very quick card with a Penny Black image coloured with Copics and a Tonic die. I have added some paper flowers and a Hero Arts sentiment. The razzle dazzle is the glitter on the flowers but unfortunately it doesn't show up too well in the photo!



I'm hoping Mr Blogger doesn't play up as I've had to schedule this post as by the time its posted I'll be in Riga, Latvia for a few days holiday with hubby, can't wait!!

CCT One Layer Card

This weeks theme at CCT is One Layer card. I made with my with Neenah Desert Storm card and Copics. The Copics coloured the card really well but they do still bleed through to the back a bit so I will have to put an insert in the card. The stamp is Great Impressions and the sentiment is Lily of the Valley. I have added glossy accents to the berries to make them shiny. I think I will be making more of these cards as they are very quick and easy to do.

CCT Dies and Punches

Another nice and easy challenge at CCT this week, we would like you to use dies and punches on your card. I have used one of my new Tonic dies, Beautiful Bramble Square and a Spellbinders labels 1 die on my card. The image is Penny Black, which I coloured with Copics and the leaves are punched with a Martha Stewart punch. 


I have just treated myself to a Grand Calibur and a couple of A4 embossing folders and a few Tonic die sets, they are fast becoming my favourite range of dies and there are a few more sets that I have my eye on!

I hope you can join us this week as we have another great prize.

CCT Too Cute

The theme at CCT this week is another nice and easy one, Too Cute. I have used a Penny Black stamp which I coloured with Copics and a new set of dies from Tonic. I have recently bought a few sets of Tonic dies, I love the intricacy of the patterns, although I have to run them through my Big Shot quite a lot of time to get them to cut!

CCT Rainbows

The theme at CCT this week is rainbows, I have cheated slightly because I couldn't find anything with a rainbow on it so I have used this Penny Black sticker which has all the colours of the rainbow on it.

CCT Reach for the Stars

This weeks theme at CCT is Reach for the Stars. I have made a very quick Xmas card using a JOFY image which I have stamped onto kraft card and coloured with pencils.



I've been missing the past few weeks mainly due to totally losing my mojo and also the cycling! I try to get out as much as possible and clocked up 91 miles over 4 days last week.
