I haven't been blogging much lately, because my craftroom hasn't been very accessible the last few days! We had some home improvements going on and I had to move all my crafty stuff out :( so our sitting room is currently full of my desk, shelves and boxes of crafty stuff haha, I'm going to reorganise everything today and get making later :)
Anyway, aside from that, today the latest fortnightly challenge at Forever Friends Challenge Blog is up, and the theme is the super easy
so no excuses, come join us!!
We have two amazing sponsors this fortnight;
Our Randomly Selected Winner prize is sponsored by the fabulous
and the prize is a $10 voucher to the store.
The Forever Friends Favourite Prize is sponsored by the wonderful
who are providing our lucky winner with two digis from the store (so get your Forever Friends images out for a chance to win the Favourite prize!)
Both of these sponsors very generously gave the DT images to work with, so be sure to check out all the DT cards over at the Forever Friends blog.
One of our very good family friends is going to Australia next week for a year with her boyfriend, so I made this bon voyage card for her, using Pack Lightly from Saturated Canary :)
As I said above, the image is from Saturated Canary, the papers are from Nitwits at Lili of the Valley, the border punch is a MS doily punch, the pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the charm, ribbon and sentiment are from stash.
I've been trying to do something new with my cards lately, I want to improve myself; I've been watching bucket loads of tutorials on all the pros' blogs lol! And writing shopping lists of all the new things I have to buy :-/ haha. But this time what I tried was very basic distressing by inking the edges of the paper with an inkpad; I like how it looks :) Very basic I know, but start small I guess :)
A closeup of this fab image, coloured with Promarkers and I put Glossy Accents and Stickles on there as well.
My bow, charm and sentiment :)
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Bingo (Ribbon, pearls, stamp) or (Ribbon, blue, flowers)
Thanks for looking and come join us at Forever Friends!
