Dream Valley Challenges - Flowers

We have a brand new challenge for you at Dream Valley and this fortnight's theme is Flowers - easy, huh!?!


I decided I'd use this photograph that was taken on holiday in Murcia a few years ago - I've always loved it! I've kept it all incredibly simple, with an embossed flower background, ribbon and a bit of stardust Stickles.


Here's another flowery creation I had a go at. It's a canvas with an acrylic paint background, including some painted flowers with Stickles highlighting. Then I've added grass (using the Clearly Besotted grass die) and flowers. The image is the SugarNellie Live, Laugh, Love fairy, whom I adore! Overall, it turned out a bit brighter than I'd envisaged, but I love these colours!! She is now hanging beside my craft desk:0)

Have fun, making your flowery creations!

Dream Valley Challenges - Weddings

Hello and happy Monday to you all. Hope you've all had a delightful weekend and that the weather is not being too nasty for you.


This fortnight's challenge at Dream Valley is Weddings, so I decided that my Ruby Wedding card order would be perfect! Obviously it's a Ruby theme and I've used a collection of papers, think they might be Papermania ones, and some gingham ribbon that I have in my stash. The hearts have been cut using my Sizzix Hearts Framelits and Bigshot - my always use piece of crafty kit!! And you've got to include some bling, haven't you?!


I would also like to enter the following challenges:

Creatalicious Challenges - Monochrome

Natalie and Amy - Die Cuts and Flowers


Have a lovely day and happy crafting!
