Pear Tree Designs - Challenge 37 One Colour

Hi everyone,

Welcome to challenge 37 - One colour, over at Pear Tree Designs Challenge Blog!

For this challenge we would like you to create a card/project that consists of using one colour only.
It can be different shades of that certain colour you use, for example if your colour was blue, you can use light blue, dark blue, baby blue, pale blue can use the odd bit of white, but as long as we know you are only using one colour.

Here are my DT cards for this weeks challenge:


I decided to use Black as my main colour on this one card and Brown on the other. I have done a 3 layer pyramage for the picture which I just printed off in black/brown and white. I thought it was lovely enough to leave plain. It is such a beautiful image. I just loved working with it!

We are sponsored by CardMadFairy's Creations this week and she has given us some lovely images to work with, so thanks for that Jenni!

This weeks lucky winner will get 5 x digital images of your choice!

Please send your enteries in by Sunday at 4pm.

Look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Pear Tree Designs - Challenge 36 - VALENTINES!!

Hi everyone,


Hope you have all been spoilt and had a lovely surprise from your other halves!  My lovely Fiance made me a lovely photocard and also bought me a new Xbox Kinect game - Zumba.  I have wanted it for ages, as I go to a Zumba/Aerobics class each week, and have really got into it, and it's just such a good work out, especially for the ol' belly area!!  Thanks you Mark, and I love you loads!!   He is about to take me out to a lovely Italian in the next town to us for lunch, and i'm starving, so can't wait!!

Anyway, back to what this post is really about - Pear Tree Designs Challenge Blog latest challenge - Valentines!

This should be yet another easy topic for you all to enter into, as I am sure most of you will have made the other halves a card or two (if they were lucky!) or even a special present!!

Please note it can be anything to do with love/valentines only!

Here is my DT card:

I made this card using some lush freebie pack from one of my many card magazines!  I am not sure which one though - sorry!  It was lovely to work with and I added some Glossy Accents to it as well to make it stand out a bit more!

This week we are sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts and they will be giving away a brilliant prize to the lucky winner!!  Please head over to the Pear Tree Designs Challenge Blog to see whats on offer.

Have a good week all, and look forward to seeing all your lovely valentine cards/projects this week!
