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.

CCT Blues and Hues

The theme at CCT this week is blues and hues. I have made a card using a vintage image and papers from Maja Design.



I haven't been making cards recently in fact the dies I received a month ago are still in the envelope! I am spending quite a lot of time cycling at the moment and we managed a 25 mile ride on Monday with only a 5 minute rest stop. I'm hoping the weather will be nice again this weekend so we can get out again.

CCT Here Comes The Summer

This weeks theme at CCT is Here Comes The Summer. I have used one of my new Penny Black stamps and coloured the image with Distress Markers. The image is cut out using a Spellbinders die and I have added some flowers and glitter. The paper is from the Prima pack I got free with a magazine and the swirls are a Tonic die. 



I hope you will be able to join us this week as we have a fab prize. I have pre ordered a couple of Tonic dies so I am hoping they will arrive this week so I can have a play with them over the Bank holiday weekend. The cycling is going ok and I bought myself a new road bike last Sunday and am hoping for some nice weather so I can get some practice in, I'm still not overly confident!

This weeks theme at CCT is Blue and Green. I have used a magnolia Tilda image for my card and Prima card pack which came free with a craft magazine. The image has been coloured with Distress Ink and I have added a die cut flourish cut with a Tonic die. The kraft card has been punched with a Stampin Up punch.



I hope you'll be able to join us this week as we have another fabulous prize. I am hoping for another nice weekend as I want to get out on my bike again. Hubby has decided he wants to do Triathlons so got himself a new road bike and I've decided to try a few bike rides with him!

CCT Floral Delight

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.

CCT Its A Wild World

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!
