Here's another card I made two nights ago, but naughty Blogger wouldn't let me upload my pics for most of last night so I didn't manage to post. So at last, here it is ....
This week's Forever Friends Challenge is your favourite colour .... when it comes to making cards mine is undeniably pink, which is strange cos it's not a colour I wear a lot (but maybe that's just due to my advancing age LOL!). I originally received this FF image from my friend Kaz and liked it so much I went out just before Christmas and bought the stamp!!
This brings me on neatly to the second challenge this card covers, which is Stamp Something - where the theme is something new. This card has definitely got that covered- it is the first outing for both my FF stamp and for the Penny Black sentiment stamp; my spotty ribbon was purchased half price from WH Smith in the January sale, and the background papers were a scrummy Christmas present from a Secret Santa swap amongst a group of my crafty friends :-) ... which also fulfils this week's CCT#42, to use something you got for Christmas.
Fourth, the brand new challenge over at Charisma Cardz is launching today, with my talented friend Sharon as the first guest designer (congratulation, hun!). Their opening theme is pink ... woo hoo, need I say more??
Fifth, over at Papertake Weekly they are seeing spots. Now this isn't an uber-spotty card but they are definitely there ... one of the background papers is a bit dotty (like me lol!), the ribbon has spots and circles, and the sentiment has some dotty letters ... plus there are little pearl gems dotted around :-)
Finally, Lili of the Valley is starting the New year by saying that anything goes ... a nice easy challenge to ease us into 2009!
Recipe: Main image - FF coloured with watercolour pencils and Sakura sparkly pen on the flowers Sentiment - Penny Black Background papers - Papermania "Exquisite" Adhesive ribbon - DCWV Flowers - Prima Pearl brads - Papermania Pearl gems from my stash
My name is Pauline, and I have been cardmaking since 2006. I started my cardmaking blog in 2008, to showcase my addiction to stamping and all things pretty - I can spend hours footling around matching up papers, ribbons and embellishments!! I have been on a number of card blog design teams, but am currently taking a step back due to various other commitments. During 2013 I discovered the joy of baking, and for 2014 have started a new baking blog to chart my progress and also include a charity element. I only wish I had more time to devote to these hobbies ... but I have to work full time as a project manager to help pay for my baking ingredients and crafty stash!!
