Last minute Halloween card

In the last minute of Halloween I wanted to share this card I made last night. I didn't want to post it earlier as I didn't want it to get in the way of the last part of the challenge I've been doing all month. This image is one of the Halloweenie's by Delicious Doodles. These images are great for layering, which is what I have done on this card.

Here is a side view to show the different layers.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 31

The last day of October and the last day of the 31 Day Card Challenge. The final challenge is just to repeat whichever was your favourite challenge. I chose to repeat day 6 which was paper piecing. It's a fun technique to add pattern to an image, which I don't do very often so I thought that would be a good one to repeat. I have used Grandma from Crafter's Companion and given her an animal print dress using the Safari Kids pad by DCWV. I finished off with a sentiment from the Girl Just Chillin' set by Making Memories.

Here are the cards from day one to day thirty:

And last, but not least I have to say thank you to Danie for playing along.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 30

Today is the penultimate challenge of the 31 Day Card Challenge and is the last of the sketch challenges. You may have noticed a new blog list has appeared on my blog. I am very happy to announce I am now a member of the Can You Digi It? DT and am now an IT girl. This is my first card using an image from Can You Digi It? and I can't wait to use more of them. The cute penguin is backed by papers from the Rose Tinted Christmas pad by DCWV.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 29

I twisted the sketch for day 29 of the 31 Day Card Challenge to fit with the plan I had for my Dad's birthday card. He enjoys watching a quiz show called Only Connect, where the aim is to find the connection between four clues. The sketch only had three squares and a sentiment panel, but I have added an extra square. Other than cutting out each piece this card was fairly simple to make, I just printed out the greetings I needed. The row of four squares say Happy Birthday in Irish, Spanish, German and French.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 28

The third sketch of the 31 Day Card Challenge is a circle card. I thought I would make it into a Halloween card, so I used this fun cupcake from Doodle Dragon Studios.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 27

Day 27 is the second of the sketch challenges in the 31 Day Card Challenge. For this card I used three of the Bear Heroes from Doodle Dragon Studios. The other panel has a sentiment on which I made using the Typewriter alphabet set from Hobbycraft. They are all backed on a superhero themed paper which was in my scraps.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 26

The sketch challenges have started with day 26 of the 31 Day Card Challenge. I don't have individual pictures of the sketches, they are just on the challenge list. For this card I used Allura Von D by Kenny K and backed her on a paper from the Hopscotch pad by K&Company.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 25

Day 25's challenge in the 31 Day Card Challenge is to be inspired by a card on the first page of your favourite card gallery. I chose the SCS gallery. I actually made this card on Monday as I knew I wouldn't have much chance the rest of the week for card making. So this is inspired by this card by Cailin which was on the first  page when I looked on Monday.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 24

Day 24 of the 31 Day Card Challenge and today the challenge is to be inspired by a material in your home. My craft room is at my Grandma's house so I went on a search for a material to use. I found a blue blouse which has different blue and purple flowers on it, and it instantly reminded me of a paper I have. For the card I kept the paper as the focus and added a few buttons to match the buttons on the blouse.

This is what the blouse looks like which I based the card on.

Happy Birthday Treena!

Today is James' Mum's birthday. I made the box which I shared on Day 20 for her, with a card to match. So today I am sharing the card. They are the same design except the card has Baker Kaylee from Some Odd Girl on it. 

Here they are together.

I forgot to take a picture once the box was filled, but it had a cake in it.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 23

The challenge for day 23 of the 31 Day Card Challenge is to take inspiration from a card on the last blog you visited. I'm not going to have chance to make a card today so I did this yesterday. I made the card after I had visited all the blogs of my blog groups, and the last one I visited was Lynn's. It was tough to choose a card to be inspired by as she has so many wonderful ones. I ended up choosing this post as the technique seemed really interesting. For my card I used a really old stamp set called Victorian Butterflies, and a sentiment from a Polka Doodles set.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 22

The challenge for day 22 of the 31 Day Card Challenge is to make a card inspired by your favourite place. I have a few places in mind for this, but quite a few of them are beaches, so I went with beaches in general for my inspiration, although Rossnowlagh in Ireland and Marazion in Cornwall are two of my favourite beaches.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 21

The next five parts of the 31 Day Card Challenge are inspiration challenges. The first is to be inspired by one of your own cards from a year ago. I didn't have anything on my blog from last October, so I had to choose one that I  have a picture of which I knew was made roughly a year ago. The inspiration card is below. 

This is last years card which I took the inspiration from.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 20

For day 20 of the 31 Day Card Challenge the challenge is to make any kind of gift holder. I decided to make an origami box, as I haven't made one for a while. I decorated the top with a paper from the Spring Burst pad by Papermania and added digi's from a set by Wink Wink Ink.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 19

The challenge for day 19 of the 31 Day Card Challenge is spring cards. I have only tried this fold once before. When I had the card folded I couldn't decide what decoration to put on the bottom, so I ended up just rounding the corners.

31 Day Card Challenge - Day 18

Easel cards are the challenge for day 18 of the 31 Day Card Challenge. I thought it would be fun to have an image of an easel on my easel card, so I used this painting dragon from Doodle Dragon Studios. I chose one of my favourite sentiments to go with him, and to keep with the colour theme added a selection of different buttons.
