Sunny February weekend!
Quirky Crafts challenge (well as a DT member I had too!) and I must say I am pleased with it. I used the Daffodil digital image from our sponsor, The Stamping Boutique, and turned the card into a Mother's Day card for my mum (she grows, sells and lectures about daffodils!).
The Crazy Challenge 'die cut/punch', Crafty Creations 'Fancy folds', Simon Says Stamp 'three different papers', Gingersnaps 'two colours' (yellow and green) and paperplay 'for a mother'.
less is more! This week the challenge is to use your scraps and like many of you I have several drawers full of scraps, mostly from scrapbooking! I think that these three papers were K&Co, but wouldn't swear to it! I am also entering this into Delightful challenges 'patterned paper', Sew many cards '2DP and 4 or more gemstones' and CCT 'winged things.
DCM challenge this week. As she is French, I set her on a tag with a very highly patterned paper reminiscent of her time period, and added the Eiffel tower (yes I know it came later- LOL!), the paris postal stamp mark, and the saying that was probably not hers, but has been associated with her over the years 'Let them eat cake'. With the finishing touches of distress inks, a fluer de lys stamp, lace and pearls you have a suitably French feeling tag! I am also entering this into SSSS 'Paris, London or New York', MTTC 'bring on the cake', All sorts 'Anything goes', Speedy Fox & friends 'lace' and DYSU 'distressing'. That is all from me for now. I hope you all have a great week.
