Shabby Chic Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers

The challenge this time at Crafty Cardmakers is shabby chic/distressed creations.  We have a wonderful sponsor, Woodware Craft Collection for this challenge.  They are a Yorkshire based family owned business.  Check them out here.  They have an awesome range of crafty goodness.  A big thank you to them for sponsoring this fun challenge.

I decided to alter a bottle.  I did a sisters bottle a couple of years ago.  I thought this one would go nicely with it.

This is a picture of my Grandma, Edith May Demmon when she was a young girl.  She was born in 1891 and lived to be 94 years old.  She was the only grandparent that I was blessed to know, as my other grandparents passed away before I was born.

I have wonderful memories of my Grandma.  She was an awesome lady.  She taught me to knit when I was five and spend hours playing games with me, teaching me Bible verses and poetry.    

I hope that you will join us for this challenge and please check out our fabulous Design Team creations.  Have a wonderful week!

For A Special Man Challenge

In honor of upcoming Father's Day, the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time is "For A Special Man".  

This stamp is Fiddlin' Frog from Heartfelt Creations.  It was quite the challenge to color as there is so much going on.  I wanted to create the look of moonlight behind the frog. It wasn't turning out how I expected, so it ended up in the trash bin.  The next day, I decided to rescue him and do my best to create a nice card and the result is above.  

Please join our challenge in honoring a special man in your life.

To those that are father's, Happy Father's Day!
