Creative Moments Challenge – April showers – May flowers

This week’s Creative Moments challenge is sponsored by My Besties.

I have used a digistamp called April Flower Cart .   It is coloured with Promarkers and I have used a Promarker to colour the doily and die-cut bunting too.  The sentiment is from Hunkydory and the papers are very old and from my stash.  This is such a lovely digistamp!

Cake and running

So, a fiftieth party of fizz and cake, for two friends who like running!  I found these two perfect digis on Polkadoodles’ Etsy store and used backing card from Hunkydory.  I cut some of the backing cards to use the bunting and cupcakes as embellishments.  And di dthe inside too.  (Apologies for the ascribbling, I should have photographed before writing),  I then made a gift tag using the same Hunkydory kit.

Creative Moments has  lots more fun cards at there Just fro Fun challenge this week!

Forever Friends card and gift box

Looking through this weekend’s challenges I got the idea for this card.  I needed to make a card for my friend’s birthday and had no idea what to buy as a small gift. IMAG2253-1 IMAG2248-1 I am currently using up old stash and this is from Docrafts’ Forever Friends Black and Gold kit.  I made the decoupage card first, and added some Papermania flowers.

IMAG2245     IMAG2242     IMAG2244

I had the box with some socks in for Christmas and never like to bin a sturdy box so covered all the logos and writing and decorated it to match the card.  I filled the box with truffles in paper cases.  I loved the outcome of this project – hope you do too!

The project is to be entered into the following challenges: – Anything goes – Valentines and Love – Anything goes – lets get cute    Happy crafting, Leona x
