Storybook or Nursery Rhyme

is the new theme on our new challenge at Crafty Catz. The challenge starts today and is picked by me. It´s my first challenge so I hope you like it. We want you to get inspired by a storybook, a storybook character or a Nursery Rhyme and use that to make a card.

We are sponsored by Bugaboo this week and they have a lot of images that are just perfect for this challenge. They are very generous and have a great give away for the winner. 7 free digis of your choice.  Not bad, right?

This is what I made:

I got inspired by the nursery rhyme Horsey, Horsey, don´t you stop - let your feet go clippety clop.

 Used some things that I thought fitted the cowboy image, like the thicker string, some stars, a gun charm. I used heps of chalk to make the papers look worn and old.

I wrote the nursery rhyme around the edge with a white gel pen. I have coloured with my ProMarkers and Faber castel pencils.

I would also like to enter following challenges:
Creative Moments - Lots of layers
Vickies  Anything Goes - Always Anything Goes
Created With Love - You lift me up

Crafty Catz DT card - Fancy Folds

We want to see some Fancy Folds this week over at Crafty Catz. I´m looking forward to see what you all come up with. I would love to learn some new folds....
But before I´ll show you what I made. I would like to announce that we have two "new" girls joining our Crafty Catz team. I like to say a warm welcome to the super talented Anna and Tilly Totter. Please pop over to their blogs and give them some looooove.

 Alota are sponsoring Crafty Catz this week with this great giveaway.

 So what did I make? Well I had a go at my first "swing card" you can find a tutorial here. It was a little bit difficult. Not to happy with my cuts. But I guess it will become easier when you made it a couple of times.

 I used heaps of stickles on my image to make him look more jolly.... also covered the banner die cut and the corner die cut.
 When you pull out the card the middle bit with the image turns and you´ll see the backside of it. I think I will put a sentiment or a greeting there.

I would also like to enter this card into following challenges:
LEJ Designs #54 - Die Cuts or Punches

This is what I made. I used this super cool stamp and thought it fits perfect. This is what you want to do on Father´s Day - kick up your feet and relax!

The sentiment says: You are without doubt the best Dad in the whole wide world. I used my ProMarkers and Faber Castell pencils.
