Guest Designers:

Chrissy used that lovely gerbera flower with the cracked pot which she paper pieced, a lovely tall card!


Jean used Spring Goddess and the word "Spring" (both available from Crackerbox as stamps or digi images) on her gorgeous card, with lots of pinks and blues.

It is a swing card, so it has the flowerpot and the flowers inside, also in pink and blue, with some additional die cut flowers in the corner - very pretty Jean.

I used Crackerbox stamp - SeaBreeze, with TH Distress inks used as watercolors, with DCW paper stack. Used lots of flowers from my stash and MS butterfly punch, pearls and corner dazzles, Spellbinder Devine Floral Die.



For this card I used 2 flowers from our sponsor CrackerBox Palace 


Today, I made a card using the beautiful Summer image, provided by Crackerbox Palace.


For my reminder project, I chose to work with this stunning silhouette digi "Sea Breeze", provided by our sponsor and coloured with distress inks.


Hi! To this week, in the reminder project, I made a card, I used the digis  flowerpot, tulips and Bunny back. These digis are provided by our sponsor. Crackerbox Palace

I used acuarelables pencils, Spectrum Noir Pencils and Distress Inks.

I have the rubber stamp of this Sea Breeze scene, but I used the digi version today which I changed to print pink onto blue cardstock.  I also printed the daisy flower on the blue card and added colour with Koh-i-Noor pencils. Simply mounted on a blue and white striped card blank.

This bunny is so cute, I printed it and the flower and flowerpot onto blue card then added some colour with my Koh-i-Noor pencils, then cut them all out. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
