Papertake Weekly - 2 for Children in Need


This week's Papertake Weekly Challenge is Mellow Yellow - Quick Cards Made Easy magazine is trying to break the world record for the biggest handmade card to support the charity Children in Need, and Papertake Weekly is sending in yellow cards that people donate as part of this challenge and donating 25p per card! How great is that?

I have made 2 cards to donate - I have kept them both fairly simple as they are small A6 cards, plus I needed to make them quickly after work before it got dark (didn't quite achieve that, but never mind!)

The first card includes the Penny Black image "Delights" that was gifted to me by Sharon (check out her fab blog which contains some brilliant card tutorials); and I have also used paper Adventures pearlised paper "Yellow Bees" with the edge punched using a Papermania multishaper punch, WH Smith and papermania flowers, Doodlebug sugar coated yellow brad and sentiment by ge studio clear stamps.

The second card uses a teddy image that was also gited to me (sorry I don't know what it was called, and it was one of several friends who may have sent it me - oops!), lemon coloured glitter card, more Doodlebug sugar coated brads, WH Smith flower and ribbon from my stash.

Go over and check out the challenge - it's well worth joining in for such a good cause!
