BF Cybercrop - Altered clipboard

Kaz's class was to alter a clipboard. I had to make a few alterations including hand cutting my scalloped edge and punching it with the crop-o-dile and threading some ribbon through. The papers are Wild Saffron from the August Bubbly Funk Kit.

Think Pink Cyber Crop

Last time we had a cyber crop at Bubbly Funk Forum, I only managed to make one thing. But I seem to have been a bit more productive this time. Kathy gave us a 'recipe' for making speedy cards, using a simple two paper technique for mass production. I thought it was going to be a repeat of last year as this first card took me about an hour and a half to make!
However, once I had all the little circles cut out and started to play around with the bits and pieces, I got on a roll and managed to make another four cards in this theme.

Joanne challenged us to make a collage stamped tag. I've always wanted to try this technique and not quite got roudn to it. I chose the Elusive Images Indian set of stamps and added some extra colour with coloured pencils.

Suzie told us about Dotee Dolls a couple of weeks ago and now has shared the secrets, so we can all make them. They are really simple to make and I enjoyed this very much. I thought my doll looked like a bit of a floozy, TracyR suggested that she looked like Mrs Slocombe from 'Are you being served'. I'm going to have to make her a boyfriend now, because I'm not going to make her 'pussy' hee hee hee.

Layered desserts are soooo easy, this is just crushed chocolate chip cookies, Yeo Valley fruit compote and greek yogurt all layered up.

Moooved the cows

It was time to move the cows, the grass is going fast, so they need to moved from field to field to help it to recover. This is an easy move just up our own road, no traffic to contend with.

It's Think Pink time again! This time we are going for the 'Awkward Annies' ie Men and children - hee hee. I actually like doing men's cards, maybe because I have two sons, but don't often have to turn out a children's card.
These images are free downloads from Cuddly Buddly and are perfect for a little one who likes teddies.

This men's card has a folded shirt and papers from Carol Ann's Studio.

Card for my DH

This is a card I made for my DH, he is currently in hospital and although he is convinced he will be coming home in the next day or two, it may take a little longer than he would like. It would be a bad show if a card maker didn't have a card on her DH's bedside cabinet and I wanted to tell him how much I love him.

Papers and Butterfly are K&Co from the BF August Kit. Stamp is Elusive Elements from Graphicus.

DCM Template and a bit of Blue and Brown

This is my card for the Daring Card Makers Dare this week. It was a lovely simple little template just asking to be made into a card. I used the free stamp from Craft Stamper to make the background paper and the other lovely paper is the K & Co paper from the BubblyFunk August Kit, some of the flowers came from the BF Think Pink kit and some from the August Kit. None of my ribbons went with the grunged up look I was trying to achieve, so I had a rummage and found this yellow stringy stuff, I grunged it a bit with an ink pad and frayed the ends.
The DCM card will be going to the Think Pink Sale as well as this card for the TP Blue and Brown challenge. The background was stamped with one of the Elusive images heart stamps and Versamark, then I used some of the paper from the BF August Kit and covered a chipboard heart with the blue spotty felt from the BF Think Pink Kit. Yes, I've gone KIT CRAZY.
