♥ CD Book...

I'm in the process of making a 'yummy' project with the brand new 'Feeling Fruity' Shabby style kit from Funky Fairy's... but wanted to share with you a project I made last month for the 'Shop Window'!! ^.^I made this from 2 OLD Cds and carefully cut the edge off so that the 'pages' would turn. I did this by putting a small piece of DST on the underside of the CD, to stop it from moving, and gently scored over and over against a ruler until the score was deep enough to snap the CD. I put the CD into a piece of kitchen roll (just in case it 'bit' my fingers!!) and aimed it away from me with the scored side facing down and bent it back until it snapped. Voila...a perfectly straight line :0) ...but you probably already knew that! :0
The holes were made with my trusty old Crop-o-dile...easy!

'Pages' - 2 CDs...with the edge cut off!

Pink & Grey

The challenge over at Colour Create this week is to use Pink & Grey...

I have taken the 'soft' approach with my card. The script has been stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I have then randomly chalked over the cardstock. The butterfly has also been heat embossed with clear powder to give it a glossy finish.

Daisy May Designs!

Yes!! I found some new image downloads...and they go by the name of Daisy May Designs!!
Well...I just HAD to have them...and of course...use them too! :)
This is a card I have made for my little Daisy as she was so excited when I showed her...but I also made it with the "Spring" challenge from Cute Card Thursday in mind! And found that it fits with the challenge from Card-A-Licious for this week too...which is "to make a card with NO sentiment on it"!!
I'm really not one for combining challenges...but I have a brand new kit from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts just begging me to play with challenges are on hold!! ^.^

So Pretty!

Like a lot of the UK, we still have a fair amount of snow left here. But last night there was such a gorgeous sunset and with the snow it just looked sooooooo pretty! My photography isn't the best I'm afraid...these are taken, one with and one without the flash :) The sun is out today so fingers crossed it might 'disappear'!! :)
