here is my card for this weeks Dare and I have used this super cute image from Victoria Case, how sweet is this image? I have used my gorgeous K&Co papers. They are so bright and pretty. Hope you can join us in this weeks challenge .
This is my take on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Wk 49. Recipe 3..2...1 Three Flowers....2 Papers.....1Charm/Brad. I used my nesties to cut the shaped card as well as the DP's and Stamped image. The flowers are punchies, the papers K&co.
This is the first of two thank you cards I have made for my son to give to his teachers, who he likes, as he is sitting his exams this week and then leaves school. Wow I feel old now lol. I decided to follow the week 5 sketch at Just Magnolia and enter their challenge this week. There are some gorgeous cards by the DT again this week and a fab prize up for grabs too.
Stamped Image - Magnolia watercoloured with distress inks All papers used are Basic Grey - Sugared. Flowers are Prima and retro punchies everything else from stash
Week 6 on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp and I really enjoyed this challenge as I love the "country style" Also this week is a very special challenge that is being sponsored by Post Pals! We would like to see: Gingham & Stitching and send your card to Post Pals (see below) in order to qualify for entry into the prize draw You may stitch by hand, sewing machine, faux etc. Don't forget your image needs to be digi :o)
"Post Pals is an organisation that was set up to create smiles for children who suffer from life threatening and long term illnesses. We ask people to log on to send the children featured on our website ‘happy post’. When a child is very ill, often a visit from the postman can make their day. A cheery card or letter can make them feel less alone and bring welcome distraction from what they go through each day. To see the difference happy post can make please watch this great video (link) To find out ore about Post Pals, please log on to http://www.postpals.co.uk/ and have a look around the website. There's a fantastic prize on offer for encouragement which is sponsored half and half by Post Pals and DU2DS with a value of £20 and includes a Martha Stewart Punch, some pretty flowers and two digi stamps, all we ask is that you join the DT in following this weeks theme and sending your finished card to a child via the PostPals site.
It was so difficult to decide on just one child, but I chose Alice P this time http://www.postpals.co.uk/pals/Alice+P#, I will be revisiting and sending more cards as I think it is a great idea.
The digi image is a copyright free dover image that I watercoloured with distress inks, the gingham is also a freeby download from the activity village website.
Have a lovely weekend
I had play around with some Digi Images for this challenge over at Charisma Cards where the theme this week is Thank You, make anything as long as it has Thank You. The gorgeous fairy is Sandra Dry's collection and the Digi Background is from Crafty Designz. I played around in PSP taking the white away from the digi stamp then placed it onto the digi background image and then rubbed off the background that showed through the fairy. I printed it and then watercoloured the fairy and added stickles, some ribbon and a flower.
