A Couple of Projects...

I've made this card for Cute Card Thursday's Kids challenge. It's for my 5 year old cousing. It's a card with an added section to fill with goodies. I've filled it up with snowballs! The snowman in a digi image from Bugaboo.


The tutorial for making one of these can be found at Inking Idaho. I added a load of glitter to the snow and hat and so am going to enter this into the Digital Tuesday 'Sparkling' challenge.


The sentiment that Aud Sentiments want used this week is Happy Holidays so I'm entering this into that challenge too. Also these chalenges:
Iris' Spot - Christmas/Winter
Sugar Sweet Paper Treats - Anything Goes

I've also made this Christmas Present (a framed picture) for a friend using a JJ image, again from Bugaboo.


Entered into the following challenges:
Karber Christmas - Digi Christmas
Karber Weekly - Anything Goes with a Digi
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes

And my final project is using the Crafty Hos Challenge which is a sketch. My favourite tool is definetly my guillotine. Easy measurements and great straight cuts. I know it's not exciting but it's true! I love it. I'm able to create mats and layers with ease. It's 12 inches so great to use with scrapbook papers and cards too. I'm entering this card into Card Cupid's challenge which is to use your favourite tool. The image is Crabby Cathy again, from Bugaboo.

How fun is this? I get to comment on one of your projects! Love, Love, Love the snowball card - the blue is the perfect color to highlight Winter snowman. I can always pick out a card by your signature dots and dashes around the image, it just makes the image "pop".

The framed present is darling - she is one lucky recipient of your talent.

I'm so glad you were able to join us for our challenge at Aud Sentiments. Happy Holidays, dee

Ooooooo...which one, which one!!! Guess this comment makes no sense to anyone else who hasnt read the others (in the right order!).

Paul - fabby work, I love the "straight forward" stuff you do - you make the image the centre of attention - so many other people just cover it with "stuff"!!!

Love it

Oh - and thanks for joining in with Aud Sentiments! AGAIN! Lol
