Fantasy challenge at Moving along with the Times

Hi all

Well I'm back!
Where have you been I hear you ask lol

Well I've been on an adventure of 4 whole weeks in Florida, and we really did have a fabulous time, we've been home almost a week now - it's taken me until now to recover after a very tiring journey home because we were delayed 2 days when our flight was cancelled.  But I have to say we were very well looked after by the airline, but very late nights and early mornings take their toll on top of jet lag

All this is really just an excuse for my post being late lol - for some reason it was in draft not scheduled as i hadleft it -and I hadn't checked to see if it posted - sorry

Anyway .... there's a new challenge over at 


and the theme is 


I have a cute card that I made for my granddaughter Eva
 - she was 2 years old last week (how did that happen)

Eva loves Elsa from the Disney film Frozen (she calls her Selsa)
So when these dies were on sale a few weeks ago I thought they would make the perfect card for her

My favourite sort of Fantasy - a Disney film

This is what I did....

Frozen Dies and embossing folder from Create and Craft
Happy birthday die - tattered lace
Letters and number - Fashion dies from Crafters Companion
Card and acetate from my stash

Hope you can join in with our challenge - it's pure fantasy!

Everyones favourite - handmade flowers!

Good morning all

I don't think there's anyone who doesn't like a floral card and it's especailly nice to make your own flowers.  years ago when I first started paper crafting I used to think that making flowers was so clever and compicated and something far beyond my capabilities.   But with just a little a bit of practice and with the lovely stamps and dies that ae available now you can make such lovely flowers and now I have no idea why anyone would want to buy paper flowers to decorate cards and projects.

So on that note.....
We have a lovely new just for fun challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenges

and our theme is

Handmade Flowers

This card has just one large flower as the main focus of the card, frobably my most used favourite flower die, called lazy Daisy from Sara Davies' English Country Garden signature collection from Crafter's Companion.  I've used it soooo many times for all sorts of projects - it's such a statement flower and can be used in so many ways.  For this card I've cut the flower twice to create a full dimentional daisy flower.

I'm still on my hollies in Florida so hope you;re reading this scheduled post  😊
- and I've added a little bit of sunshine too!

This is what I did...

Flower and leaf die - Lazy Daisy from Sara Davies English Country Garden Signature collection
3D embossing folder - Country Garden by Crafter's Companion
Black card  and pastel card- Crafter's Companion
Sentiment - Anna Griffin

We'd love to see your handmade creations this week at Fab'n'Funky
