City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 72 - All Dressed-Up

Thanks Kirsty at CCCB for a wonderful challenge!

I used scraps from my "Rouge & Mocha" by MM.
The dress form is a Whimsy Shapeology Die, the spool and the button by Tim Holtz.
The hat is a very old Sizzix die.

I embossed some foil with the Measurement folder from Cuttlebug.

Thanks for stopping by!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 71 - Best of Friends

I used some Stampin' Up DP for the background and an image by Graphic45. I stamped the flowers and embossed the piece on the left side for some depth.

I love the colours, they match the weather around here, almost like fall :(

I enter this card into the challenge at CCCB!

Thanks for stopping by!

Yesterday I received a surprise package! 
The most wonderful bookmark and all those neat clothespins and the ribbon from Ira.

Ira, who told you I LOVE corrugated paper?

Ira, you're the very best, thank you so much! I feel so spoiled!

You made my (Sun)day!

1 Photo Sketch

This is Lucy's 1 Photo Sketch:

 This is what I came up with, a 5 x 5" card

I think this is actually the very first time I stuck so close to the sketch .....  It looks almost like a copy ;)

Thanks Lucy for letting me play!

I am so tickled to be guest designer for the third time at City Crafter Challenge Blog

Thank you Kirsty for having me! It is always a pleasure!

I used scraps from my favorite paper series Graphic45 and some cardstock. 
The puzzle pieces represent the sentiment "Always together".

Thanks for stopping by!

ABC Stamping

This week we had the letter "N" at Fun with ATC's. "N" for Naked people. Since I don't have any stamps with naked people I thought this would also be a take on the challenge. 

And no, I'm not a macabre person at all!
