Summer Days

HI guys,
Well I am still up to my eyes in Commission cards,the minute I get some all ready to go more calls come in for more,so I am really trying to keep up,please forgive me if I cant be pop over every day,I will be back to normal soon I hope,so have not had any time to play,apart from the cards that people are asking for.

So over at anything goes,this week,the challenge is Summer Days
I decided to make a digital collage using Serif,I got the image from the internet,and I took the background away using the cut out studio and oh boy it was hard as the background was the same colour as the main image so it took me a long time so here it is...........



So if you would like to play at anything goes,this week and see the rest of the teams,amazing creations the link is HERE

Here are some Commission cards I have been working on,I had to make some Bingo cards,for some ladies who love Bingo I had to make 3 and this is one of them,
The papers I did in Craft Artist,image from the internet,and added it too the card,then found some bingo cards,and added these to,

And this is another one I have made,I still have,5 more of these too make for this chap I had to put the words on each card no idea what it means,but sure he does,they all have to have flowers,and ribbons,on and nothing else so here is one of them,



This card again was created in Serif Craft Artist,papers,and the writing,then added some SU card,die cut leaves,flowers and ribbon,finished with border,peel offs.

So there you go guys,will be over now too see what you have all been up to,thanks again everyone for staying with me,hugs Cherylxxxxxxxxxx

We also have a challenge over at Creative Craft today too and the theme is just a sentiment and its team B's turn this week,so please pop over too see what the DT have made,as they are all just gorgeous,hugs Cherylxxxxx

Also there is a new challenge starting soon,and its called in the Pink,the lovely Slyvia is one of the team members this starts on August the 9th so if you would like to support the girls please pop over HERE to join in,hugs Cherylxxxxxxx
