Cuttlebug Challenges

I would like to share my last two CB Challenges with you, last week's was from a sketch and this week's had to be an "All White" wedding card.  Last week for the sketch challenge, I chose to make a Christmas card and add it to my stash for this Christmas.  This week, for the All White wedding card, we had to heat & emboss (my sentiment), use embossing folders, diecuts and add any embellies you would like - I added the polka-dot white ribbon.

I also did another Sketch Challenge, so will show you that as well.  I used Basic Grey Background and a Sarah Kay stamp, which I coloured with copics. Thanks for looking!

Welcome to Myrt's Crafty Corner

This is my very first "Post" on my new blog "Myrt's Crafty Corner.  I have been making cards for years (being disabled, it is a lifeline) but having been disabled for 12 years, I cannot make cards at the rate I used to.  I now tend to use my Cricut and Cuttlebug - they can cut and emboss a lot easier than my hands will.  Although, I still try my hand at stamping and colouring but not as often.

I also joined Crafts-U-Print and make cards for them but only as many as my hands will allow me to do.  I have met a lot of nice folk there and if you have never visited the site, you must have a look http://www.craftsuprint.com/.  They have some wonderful designers and card makers there.

I also belong to Paper Craft Planet and I like to participate in the Cuttlebug Challenge there.

I will not be posting every day but would like to show you my new items as they are made.

I would like to show you two of my favourite cards from Crafts-U-Print 1) Guard at Buckingham Palace and a Wedding Card I entered into a challenge on CUP.  I have just sent this Wedding Card to a nephew's son that is getting married the end of next week.

There isn't much to look at as of yet, but as time goes on, you can stay awhile and browse around.  Enjoy.
