Hi all 

A new challenge starts today over on kenny k's krafty krew, the theme for this challenge is 

*Anything Goes* Twist 

We had the Tour De France in Ripon last weekend and this card is inspired by this fab event. 

To be honest wasn't that keen on it coming to Ripon at first as all the roads were closed and we couldn't leave home, but we then decided to join in the fun, everyone was out in force to watch all those cyclist zoom by (and it was a super fast zoom as if you blinked you missed them) but it was a great day out with the kids and then on the night there was an Abba Gold concert, which was super fun

Now on to my card I have Bike Kid and is coloured up with Spectrum Noir Pens and Pencils, the papers and embellishments are from this months free download on Crafters Companion which was perfect colours for this image 

Thanks for looking

Sneak Peak of Crafter Companion Christmas

Hi All 

I have a super sneak peaks of the new Bebunni Christmas range form Crafters Companion, this range as always is super cute and fabulous for all our Christmas crafting.

It will be launched over on Create and Craft as a 4 Day Deal on Monday 23rd June, the CD is a double one with what you expect to see on the wonderful CDs from Crafters Companion and the 2nd CD has all you need to craft fabulous items other then cards like baubles, party hats and even crackers

The sneak peak today is using the toppers and papers from the CD along with my favourite Kraft Card and Core- dinations card stock. I remember making a mug out of card years ago, so thought this would be perfect to add some hot chocolate and chocolate in the mug along with a stirrer, for a little Christmas gift. 

Thanks for stopping by will hopefully share some more sneak peeks tomorrow
