Love to Craft Midway Reminder

It’s like Clapham Junction  today with the meeting of three challenges!

We are already half way through the current challenge at Love To Craft and as always the theme is Anything Goes. My project is the engagement card I made for a colleague at school for all the staff to sign. Debbie and her fiancé Paul are both keen cyclists so I could not resist this image from Polka Doodles.


Materials used: 
Polka Doodles – Tandem Ride – Winnie (also available as a precoloured image)
X-Press It! card
red card
silver mirri card
black card
white printer card
Copic pens
metal heart accents
A5 card blank

Print the image on X-Press It! card at the required size and colour with Copics. Trim to size and mat and layer onto silver and black card.

Print the sentiment on white printer card leaving a gap for the prepared topper and the accents. (I could have done with making the middle space a little bigger really.)

Trim the printed white card slightly around the edges. Cover the front of the card blank with red card then attached the trimmed white card.

Attached the topper to the middle of the card and the metal hearts at the bottom.

I am happy to say that Debbie and Paul liked their card, big sigh of relief!

The Love To Craft challenge runs until the end of the month so there is still time for you to get an entry in, so come along and join the fun. We are an all-crafts, just for fun challenge blog and welcome any and all kinds of handmade creations – from cards, tags, ATCs and scrapbook layouts – to 3-D projects, mixed media canvases and altered projects – and even knitting, crocheting, quilting and jewelry-making! Whatever you’re working on, we want to see it!

Our challenges are monthly – they go live at 6:00 AM EST on the first day of every month and run until 6:00 PM on the last day of the month – and are always Anything Goes!
Winners and Top Picks are chosen by our Design Team and announced on the 5th of the month following the close of each challenge. We do not solicit sponsorship so there are no prizes. We play for *FUN* and for ‘Winner’ and ‘Top Pick’ badges. There may occasionally be a goody bag of craft supplies thrown in by the blog owner or some blog candy scattered for a lucky winner!
You may enter up to five (different) projects in our challenges and you may combine our challenges with as many others as you wish.
Link just your project – not your entire blog – to our challenge via the Linky Tool at the end of the challenge post. List our challenge in your blog post and link back to us.

We allow back-linking of projects that are no more than six months old. Absolutely no digitally-created projects – we want to see tangible handmade creations.

Thanks for swinging by. Take care.


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
