Here is my interpretation of a tutorial from Aida Haron from Sizzex, I used the Tim Holtz Alterations texture fades, "Patchwork" and sprayed it with several home made inks,Light yellow, dark yellow, and vintage photo made from a re-inker. I used ink pads, a dark reddish brown from Cre8tive, Vintage Photo from Ranger, Cantouloupe and Tuxedo Black from Memento, and a Perfect Pearls Mist "Sunflower Sparkle" and several embellishments found in my stash, and I used a Cheery Lynne Sentiment "Best Wishes" on the inside of the card.

I used a blue cardstock, and used white for the topper which I lightly inked over a brick template from Twiddleybitz and I cut the leaf from a cutting die from mpress.com.au, I used Danube Blue and black to ink the leaf and the plain blue for the bricks and the edges. I used an old Fiskars stamp for the sentiment. Am very happy with this one, Thanks Loll for the inspiration.

I made this card to say thank you to a friend, and I used the template on lesson 7 on Clean & simple cards no 3, lessons, although I used a cuttlebug embossing folder "Tiny Mosaic" and used some coloured dots that I bought at "Crazy Clarks" who were closing down and had 50% off. I used markers to do the colouring on the inside of the openings of the words and the hearts. I am quite happy with the outcome!
http://52cct.blogspot.com.au April Colour Challenge.

I hope I have got it right!!

http://gloriadesignschallenge.blogspot.com.au I used a tim holtz stamp set that I haven't used before but have had it for a very long time, the set is called "lost and found" on a background of distress stain "chipped sapphire" and stamped with distress ink "vintage photo" I made mini royal roses with scraps from Graphic 45 paper "birdsong" and used gemstones in the top two corners from the cheap shop.
http://52cct.blogspot.com.au I used last years Christmas paper for the background and the red piece on the front of the card also the sentiment, I made a red paper bow from a free template that I found on the net and I used Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight cutting die for the reindeer and stamped them with a stampendous stamp "music" with Tim Holtz distress ink "Vintage Photo" and I used a black pen for their eyes. I used a Tim Holtz distress marker "Picket Fence" for the faux stitching around the edges, made two cards because I wanted to use both reindeer. The sentiment was cut with a Marianne Creatables die.

http://gloriadesignschallenge.blogspot.com.au . I don't have a craft room as my house is too small, but I do have nooks and cranny's where I can put drawers for my stash. This is my newest cubby hole in the laundry where I have a small table to hold my wi fi printer and underneath it I have a set of small drawers all labelled with the names of what is in them on the side I have clear folders which also hold things like alpha's and various embellishments, gem's etc.
