First challenge for the Ditzy-Craftymess blog

I am proud to be on the design team of the new Ditzy-Craftymess challenge blog, we have challenges daily and fortnightly with some great sponsors so come on over and join in the fun. The first challenge is anything goes, any colour, any project.

Here is the prize for the first challenge from one of our wonderful sponsors, MeiFlower a whopping £10 voucher to spend.

So on we go, here is my project for this fortnight

 I made this at my local monthly craft club, we had to make a card with an acetate dome on it. I used an image from Kanban mounted on some paper and card from my mum  then wrapped the acetate over the image and secured at the back with DST. I then folded the right hand side up to the edge of the image to create the flap, I then used various offcuts of paper for the backing and used a Kanban stamp on the front.

I hope to seen all of your lovely creations soon, hugs Fiona x

First Christmas card of 2011

This is the first christmas card I have made this year, I think i'd better get a move on in making some more. I made this for the show and tell at my stamp club. The theme was chrismas in black and white and there was some stunning cards that people had made.
I have glittered his beard but the photo doesn't show it very well.
Oh! the snowflake is one of the Marianne design sets of dies layered on top of each other and the joy is cut with the slice elite.
