Two new challenges

>> Friday, 30 January 2009

I've used a great sketch from Carole's at Friday Sketchers for this card. The last couple of cards I've made have been 6" x 6" which is so much easier to work with than the 14cm x 14cm size I was using before. Everything seems to fit much better and there's enough room for lots of embellishments without the card appearing over-crowded. I just need to get some bigger envelopes now!!

I've used my new Daisy Bucket papers which were on special offer at the Stitch & Create Show last weekend. And I had to stamp Daisy (Sugar Nellie) to go with the pretty papers. I coloured her with distress inks and watercolours.

I can also enter this card into two challenges I haven't taken part in before; Stamp Something where the theme is 'Summer' and Dutch Dare Card Challenge who ask you to make a thank-you card.

I have a cup of tea and a cream egg beside the computer so I'm going to enjoy a bit of blog hopping now!

gorgeous card - Daisy is one of my fave images. Adorable papers, such lovely colours!!!! Hope you enjoyed your choccie, lol, mmmmm. I get my envelopes from ideal envelopes - they also sell larger cello bags too - worth a look. P+P is a bit but if you buy quite a few it work out ok.
Thanks for joining us this week on Stamp Something - have a fab weekend
