CRAFT Challenge blog challenge 455 - Guest Designer

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are well and having a good week. It is a bit of a busy week for me one way and another. Later I am meeting an old work colleague for a coffee which will be nice. Having worked in a school the holidays are the only time I can see some people.

Way back in January I won a challenge on the CRAFT Challenge blog and because of this they asked me to be guest designer for challenge 455. The sponsor is Sweet'n'Sassy and the theme is Mother's Day/Female.

I did colour the image first then I found a backing paper with a similar colour. The frame I cut with an older Creative Expressions die. I think the card I made is feminine enough. 


This is not a brand I have used before and I was impressed by the images in the store. If you click on the logo you will be taken there. 


This image is called Cone Flowers and Butterfly and is available HERE. I printed onto Neenah card and coloured the image with Promarkers. 


The thank you ribbon came from a gift box. 


The thanks die is one from Crafter's Companion. 


Thank you for stopping by. Things seem to have been a bit odd in blogland lately. I will be back tomorrow with two Design Team posts. 


Enjoy the day.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Hi Jackie,
what a very super card and that image is so lovely.
Your colouring is perfect and goes so well with that beautiful paper.
Love the famed die cut it's so pretty.
I have been having strange things happening to my blog when I refresh my page it can't find it again, and that has also happened to others I might visit too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Good evening Jackie,
What a stunning card, the flowers are really pretty and beautifully coloured, love it.
I like how you have framed the flowers with the Die. A very feminine card IMO.
Thank you so much for your visit to my Blog, much appreciated.
