Hope you're all well. This week's theme over at Forever Friends Challenge Blog is a little different - it's
Are You Brave Enough?
We would like to see a card that you made in your early card making days and a card that you made today. The theme is Anything Goes, just to show an old card and a new one - and remember to include an animal on your card.
We're sponsored this week by the wonderful
and they're giving the lucky winner some digis from her store.
It's actually cringeworthy looking back at old cards! I can't believe I used to actually think these were good, let alone give them to people :/ but I guess looking back at them now shows how far I've come as a card-maker, which is always a good thing to know :)
So here's my old card from a year ago:
I don't know what I was thinking lol :P I was very ill and in hospital when I made it and one of the other patients on the ward was a really good cardmaker, and she saw it and told me everything that was wrong with it, I was so upset at the time! But she was right unfortunately :P
And here's my new card that I made recently.
The image obviously is Forever Friends, the sentiment is LOTV, the ribbon I won in a candy, the gems and corner are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used a MS doily border punch, the DP is Wild Rose Studio and I used my grand impressabilities to emboss the white paper :)
A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers and I put Glossy Accents on the balloon.
A closeup of the sentiment. I love this purple ink :)
I'd like to enter this (the new card!!) into the following challenges:
Thanks for looking, and I hope you're not too appalled by my old card :P
