Cazzy Hookin' time: T for Tuesday and for Two CALs

To see the T for Tuesday post on my crochet blog - click on the following link: Cazzy Hookin' time: T for Tuesday and for Two CALs: It's time for T on Tuesday, and as long as you show a beverage you can join in with the lovely people over at Elizabeth and Bleube...

Quirky May Flowers follow furry April Showers.

I'm late, can't seem to get anything done on time at the moment. This lovely image is from Ike's Art and is called Greek Window. You could win a $15 voucher to spend on Ike's Art images if you enter the Quirky Challenge and you have until 28th May to play along.
We are also sponsored by Delicious Doodles and Bloobel Stamps and I will be making another card with Bloobel Stamps soon.
I coloured this digi with Promarkers, die cut it with Spellbinders and heat embossed the stamped sentiment. Mum is recovering from a major back operation so I think she needs a little cheering up.
I added some red polka dot chiffon ribbon to finish the card.

I hope you will hop over to Quirky to see the other gorgeous examples and to play along and maybe win a prize.

Challenges entered:
Ike's World - embossing (Tues)
A Gem of a Challenge - flowers (May 27th)
Crafts Galore - Anything goes (May)

Quirky May Flowers

The May challenge at Quirky Crafts is all about flowers, simple! We have three new sponsors, and this digi is Love in a Mist from Delicious Doodles. I have this growing and spreading in my flower borders, and just had to have the digi!
I coloured the digi with Chameleon pens, having a little trouble with some of them where they won't lighten and I have hardly used them so they shouldn't be dried up already. The grey I wanted to use as a light shadow would not lighten so I used a Promarker instead. 
I made sure there was enough space to die cut this shape with a Spellbinders die, and Just for You is a Tonic die, I found this perfect linen texture blue card stock and decided to keep the card simple.
Delicious Doodles, Ike's Art and Bloobel stamps are our three new sponsors for May which is really exciting, and I hope to make a couple more cards to show you soon, or for the reminder at least!

Unfortunately this will be the last challenge for Quirky Crafts for a few months, and maybe forever if we don't get some applicants for the DT. After May we will be down to three on the team, and two of us have very sick husbands, the other has health issues of her own, so we cannot continue unless we get some healthy people who can boost the team back up!

Hop on over to Quirky Crafts to play along with our pretty challenge and maybe you will win some digis.
