Crafty Sunday With Daughters

Hi everyone well what a day we have had here today. Myself and my two daughters have had a crafty Sunday afternoon/evening, and I have enjoyed every minute, as there is usually only me sitting by myself on a weekend crafting all alone, so having the girls here is fab. Both my daughters have their own blogs and I have them on my side bar if you would like to pop over to their blogs and leave a comment I am sure they would love it.. Lindsay is only 18 and hasn't been blogging or doing challenges very long- although saying that she won Dutch Dare Challenge last week! How lucky! So here is my first card for this week and its for Bunny Zoe Craft Challenge, which is held monthly and the theme was Fun in the Sun. So I have used this stamp and sorry folks but don't know what the make is, as I picked it up at the NEC show last year in a bargain bin. Its a sweet image of two small children trying to catch the little fish on the banks of a river.
My second card I made today  was for Sassy Studios Challenge and their theme this week was clean and simple, so I took it literally and used a Hanglar and Stanglar stamped images of this cutie doing what else cleaning her washing! Kept it really simple and used really calm papers, nothing loud or brash. Just added a sentiment and a few small flowers.
Just Magnolia Challenge this week was whats cooking, so this is my card and she is all ready to bake she has her rolling pin in her hand love Magnolia stamps they are so cute too. I have used the colour theme red and greens mainly. Once again quite a simple clean looking card, using tall card this time for a change, as square are my faves to use.
Well my next card is for triple entry card for Cute Card Thursday which is card for the man in your life and also for Totally Papercraft which is one for the boys and also for the monthly challenge from Lollipop Crafts which was anything goes. Well I have found another paper which I bought years ago when I first got into paper crafting and its got lots of boys toys on so I thought great I can finally use that paper I have. So I used that as my base and then used some denim effect paper also. The image is once again Hanglar and Stanglar, Copic Markers used again. I have kept this one quite simple and just added a sentiment which is usually true if most little boys.
So my next card is for Charisma Cardz Challenge and that was sunshine colours. So I have used a cute Hanglar and Stanglar image, I just love these cute images they are one of my style of stamps. So I have used some paper that I bought a couple of years ago and it has been in my stash all this time and it's of a lovely summer meadow. I cut the image out and added foam pads to give her a bit of a lift this image was coloured in using Copic Markers. I then added some lace, which I threaded some pink organza ribbon through, some purple butterflies and a lovely sentiment saying Butterfly Kisses which I thought was very apt.
This card is my card for I Love Promarkers Challenge and also Winter Wonderland which is holly and ivy. The images are from Kars range of stamps. So I used a blue card as my base and then I added some vellum over the top/ then added my images, added a sentiment and some ribbon and again just picked up some of the outlines with Stickles. The Promarkers I have used were Ice Grey 1 and 2, Slate, Vanilla, Peach, Moss, Forest Green,Ruby, Poppy, Berry Red, Blue Pearl and finally Denim Blue
My next card you may need a pair of sunglasses to look at it! It's my card for Dutch Dare Challenge, which was colour combo, Papertake Weekly cute and aw factor and I am also putting it forward for Allsorts Challenge which is free and easy July. So three in one here the colour combo was to use hot pinks, green, yellow, orange and I picked up the blue colour from their picture of the pool water. So as you can see all very bright colours and I have used bright card for the base and have used a very cute Penny Black stamped image, she is so cute. I have added some bright flowers and a simple sentiment, hope it hasn't blinded you too muchx
This is my entry for two challenges which are Penny Black  and their theme was stars and also Spoonful of Sugar which was to use a tag. So I have used this cute image from Penny Black range and have cut him out and made my own tag and used some lovely paper which my daughter brought with her. The stars are brads and I used them to add my flowers, added a sentiment and a nice red ribbon and used some Stickles to hi light some of the image. Well that's all for today, we have left the dining room full of our craft clutter, so no one can eat this week! Will blog hop later in the week as tomorrow is supposed to be really hot so may have to go and sit at the beach with a good book. Hope you enjoy looking at my blog and my cards hugs Arlinex
