This challenge -   
ANYTHING GOES
with optional twist DISTRESSING - INK/TOOL
This is my inspiration project for you.
 
 I started with a 6x4 kraft base card with fold at top.
I layered with two different papers, distressing the edges of both layers with a distressing tool.
I took several die-cut toppers, distressing those too,
placing them at various places on the top layer.
I stamped a sentiment on to kraft card and die-cut it with a stitched tag die.
I tied a piece of twine in a bow and placed it over the hole on the tag.
I used 3D glue gel on all the toppers.
Hope this will give you some of inspiration.
Please take a moment or two to meet my other teamies....

THE MERRY XMAS CHALLENGE - #25 RIBBON

I was very honoured to be asked to join the DT for
THE MERRY CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE!
I love making Xmas cards so of course I said 'Yes'!
So my thanks to Janis the challenge owner.
And here for you is my first DT post!
The theme for this challenge is RIBBON
I love the Scandinavian Christmas themes so that is what I chose to do.
I started with a 5.5x5.5 kraft card base with fold at the top.
I used elements from a paper pad in my stash filled with toppers and embellishments...
with a Scandinavian theme. Perfect!!
I finished off with a small red bow on the tag sentiment.
I hope you like what I did.
Thanks for stopping by today and see you next week!!

JUST FOR FUN...

Hello lovely people!
I wanted to get some practise in on my colouring skills.
I have been purchasing classes over at KIT & CLOWDER for over two years!
I have not completed one single class!
I am not lazy just bothered really my work will not be 'good enough'..
How many times Alyce has said never to think that way lol.
So its time to get down to it!
This card is 'just for fun' and not part of any class.
The image is from LACY SUNSHINE - its RORYS CATTAILS
I used Copics to colour her.
I think she turned out pretty well and I am happy with it.
Happy crafting!!
