Buzz off!

Not you - the theme!

OK so this is a bit of marathon in terms of challenges so I'm going to list them!
  1. Cute Card Thursday - black and yellow
  2. Die Cut Dreams - ribbon and trims
  3. Cupcake Craft Challenge -cute as a bug
  4. Stamp with fun - the sketch
  5. Simon Says - stitching
  6. Dutch Dare - so charming
  7. C.R.A.F.T. - no backing paper
  8. One Stop Crafts - die cuts

The image is a gorjuss girl which I received in a swap with Vikki, although I've not sent my swaps yet (sorry - when I'm germ free), she's shaded with ProMarkers and Glamour Dust for sparkle and cut out with Cookie Cutter dies. I've made my own backing paper after seeing Deanne create some this way. I punched out some flowers, glued them to plain card and ran it through the Cuttlebug using Swiss Dots. Deanne's was much more colourful and stunning, you have to go and take a look.

I drew on the faux stitching and then got out my needle and thread to sew a charm and some beads together and then fixed them to a button and flower too.

Finally finished off with some ribbon and a sentiment which is a chipboard square from DCWV.

See you tomorrow!
