Creative Craft World Challenge - Family

This week it is my turn as DT member to set the challenge over on the CCW blog - and the theme is family - I challenge you to scrap a family photo - old or new, siblings, parents, grandparents, children, nieces, nephews - the list endless. Anything goes - but I do challenge you to use some of those old metal embellies - I know you have some buried in your stash somewhere!!! If you want to make a card - perhaps a housewarming card - or a Christmas card from our family to yours - just don't forget a metal embellishment!!
I have done a LO of my wonderful Mum with her 5 wonderful grand-children (2 are mine and the other 3 belong to my sister!). I have used Echo Park - Life is Good paper collection and the matching Bazzill pack from CCW. Prima flowers and lots of 'old' metal embellies.

Making Memories pewter flower and a WRMK Grommet
another MM flower and a Queen&Co brad
Thanks for looking and I look forward to seeing your projects!
Love and Hugs

Magnolia Cards

A selection of Magnolia cards - and not a Christmas card in sight!!!
I have used a shaped card from Craftwork cards - I love these cards as they come with lovely envelopes that allow room for all the beautiful embellishments! I have coloured in my Magnolia wedding couple using pro-markers, I've cut them out using Nestabilites labels 4 and glittered with stickles
The flowers are a selection from Wild Orchid Crafts, pins, ribbon, stamens are from my stash and a little bit of pearly bling!!

A couple of birthday cards - using the same stamp - Ladybugs Heart Tilda. I have coloured in the image using Pro-markers and Prisma pencils.
flowers and embellishments from stash as before
sentiment is Stampin Up.

and the same card in red.
I have used a blank card from Craft work cards
The ivory roses have been inked with SU ink - using a sponge dauber

Thank you much for looking I love to see your comments!
