A Year of ATCs? - Day 236

Today I am up to Day 236 of my 'Year of ATCs?'

Another swap - this time for ATC Swap UK on facebook.

This month the theme is 'Pub Names' and this is the fifth of my 5 ATCs.

Today I went for 'The Royal Oak'.



I started with blue card and a scrap of smooshed Distress Ink background as the first two layers, both cut with Tonic ATC dies.
The background was mentioned in the Happy Little Stampers Video that I posted on Tuesday. On this layer I stamped oak leaves and a tree in brown and black ink - the stamps are from Stampin Up's Lovely as a Tree set.
 I printed the name on the computer, trimmed it, and used a fineliner to add faux stitching.










Happy Crafting!

A Year of ATCs? - Day 235

Today I am up to Day 235 of my 'Year of ATCs?'

Another swap - this time for ATC Swap UK on facebook.

This month the theme is 'Pub Names' and this is the fourth of my 5 ATCs.

Today I went for 'The Duke of York'.



I started with blue and beige cards as the first two layers, both cut with Tonic ATC dies.
 I then added the Tattered Lace die cuts.
 I printed the name on the computer, trimmed it, and used a fineliner to add faux stitching.

Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything Goes - Challenge #256


Here's my card for the Anything Goes Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More



I have had to make several sympathy cards recently - this is just one.
I used a cream card base with an arched window aperture.
Behind this aperture I placed some gelli plate background.
I added a pale blue banner at the bottom stamped with 'Thinking of You'
 and with a paper bow.


Hope you will enter the Challenge!

Digitally Made - there's still time...


There is still time to enter the August Digitally Made challenge...

Digitally Made is a 100% digital crafts challenge blog and this month's theme is 'Pets/Animals'!

You may remember my contribution at the beginning of the month - a digital layout using photos taken at Twycross Zoo
.





I decided to continue with my camel theme, this time using photos from when we lived in Abu Dhabi in 2006.



I have used frames, pages and tag from Dragons Lair Designs and Serif Craft Artist 2 to combine it altogether, together with the text.

Finally I added the white camels - pngs from Vera Lane's Hump Day


Hump Day - quirky camel digi stamp with sentiments





Hope you will take part in this, the fourth Monthly Challenge in Digitally Made!
