Good afternoon everyone - here I am again with a second post for today - blimey! (If you would like to see my earlier Penny Black Saturday Challenge post, please go here).
Today is the first Saturday of the month, which means it's time for another Crafty Calendar Challenge. Thanks to everyone who took part in last month's challenge, don't forget to check if you are a winner.
This month we have a theme which is very much in line with this time in the calendar - it is
♥♥♥ Love ♥♥♥
We are sponsored this month by Squiggle Stamps who are offering a £15 gift voucher.
Anyone who has called by this morning will have noticed that I have already got my husband's Valentine card sorted; so I went in a slightly different direction for this one and made an anniversary card.
Whenever I use an image with a watery theme I always get the urge to follow it through in the colours of my papers. I had a particular piece in mind which was soft shades of pale blue and green ... but could I find it anywhere?? Nope! However I was quite pleased when I settled on this MME paper, as it gave me the opportunity to use a really lush co-ordinating Prima flower, which was in a pack Iwon quite a while ago and which has been waiting for a card to stick to since then!! :-)
Main image: LotV "Bubble bath", coloured with Promarkers, and image edges inked wtih Versamagic chalk ink;
Sentiment: LotV Sentiment circles;
Papers: My Mind's Eye;
Supplies: large flower by Prima; large pearl brad from The Hobby House; heart charm & ribbon from my stash;
Tools: small circle, large circle and lacy circle nestabilities; Martha Stewart "Valentine lace" edge punch; Leone Em "Ash Branch" leaf punch.
