New Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge - Something Beginning With Z


For our new challenge today on the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge Blog, we're asking you to create 'something beginning with z' - definitely one to get everyone thinking!  

You can find more details about the challenge and see what the rest of the Design Team have come up with here on the challenge blog.

I've got for 'zig zags' for my card - the paper is from a Dovecraft pack and I found some card which matched it.  I've used a Memory Box die for the 'happy birthday' and them simply matted the whole lot on to black paper.

LC Designs Class - 28 May


 A big thank you to everyone who came along to my LC Designs class on Saturday - it was a great day and a busy one too!  In the morning I had a group of twenty ladies and in the afternoon another group of eleven ladies - it certainly kept me on my toes!

The classes are held on the Wirral in the methodist church in Irby - we usually have two classes running at the same time and lots of ladies stay for the day.  There's also a great LC Designs shop for anyone who wants some retail therapy!

The first photo (above) shows Gill's class in the morning and the second (below) shows part of my class:


I'll be sharing the cards I designed for the class over the next few weeks and here is the first one:


This is a very simple card using the 'Dinkies Flowerhead' stamp from LC Designs - you can find it here on the website.  It's made by fixing the pieces of white card together in a stack using temeporary adhesive.  You then stamp the Flowerhead stamp randomly over the stacked card, separate it and colour it in and then layer the white card with black paper.  The sentiment I've used is here on the website.

There are more classes coming up both on the Wirral and in Crawley - all the details are here on the website.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers - 'monochrome'
613 Avenue Create - 'anything goes'
A Beautiful Mess - 'anything goes'
Craft Rocket Challenge - 'monochrome'
Word Art Wednesday - 'anything goes'
I Love Promarkers - 'anything goes'
