How time flies this is the 5th Monday in July and my last card as GD for Incy Wincy . Thanks to all the lovely sponsors for their super images . This week the challenge is Birthdays and the sponsors are Lacy Sunshine and 2 Cute Ink . I've used  'Clown  Eleanor '  from Lacy Sunshine , the balloons are perfect for a birthday card.

Christmouse in July

The lighting is not very good as it's early evening - the card stock is a lovely deep cherry colour and the strip at the bottom is spruce green  .I have put glitter on the red berries and the spruce branch but it doesn't show up .

A little wedding love

 I can see me making more of these in different colours. I just need to be a bit more exact cutting the panels and also in adding the pearls ,the center one needs moving ever so slightly.

Crafting With Dragonflies has a bloghop and also challenge  7 - Weddings .

Tulip Bookmarks

This week at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge  the theme is " Read all about it " . Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps  . I used Bugaboo Tulip Tag which I re sized  to make my bookmark ,I then cropped the small butterfly ,enlarged it and used it to cover the tag hole at the top edge.The design is the same on both sides of the bookmark which I coloured using pencils .I added some beads to give the bookmarks a little weight .

Dragon delivery anyone ?

The challenge this week at Incy Wincy is 'things with wings - . the sponsor is Doodle Dragon Studios and I've used this cute stork making his delivery . The background papers were just the right colour but sadly only scraps so there is a blank area behind the main image , I used washi tape to define the sections.

A simple happy birthday

I used sequin waste as a stencil to make my own background paper.

This card was created using a sheet from Nancy Watt. Once I had made my backing paper it was an easy task to pick out a few elements and stick them down .

UnstampaBelles -  challenge 52 -  Birthday Cake - Now I know I don't have a birthday cake on my card but then neither have any of the design team except Merry so I'm guessing it's just a birthday theme .

Brown check paper from Stampin Up ,Blue paper Kaisercraft , spotty strip is chipboard from heidi grace. All the other bits are just made by me .
