DT card for Craftycatz




Good Morning bloggers i am back with my creation for Crafty Catz as it's a new challenge day and the theme is Brown & Pink.
I have used my MS punch for boarders, added flowers and ribbon from stash.

The DP i have used are what i have had a very long time, sometimes i just forget about things, do you?

Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights,we were given some fab images to use BUT i only had thick card left so my printer decided not too play fair! so hence this image instead.

Love to see you join in with our challenge,
will be adding this card to the following challenges.

Mmmmm chocolate time!

Hello...I am impressed with myself, managed to make this card last weekend and do this post so that it would post today, i am usually a little behind just lately, too much work and not enough play time.
It's time for the new challenge over at CRAFT and it's Resist Technique, I must say i really enjoyed making my piece of backing card, it's the smaller backing piece, i have took a few extra photo's this week so you can see it.



I used a swirl stamp which i have not used for a long time, think i will be using it a lot more. this way i can make any colour to match my card.

Our sponsor this week is Sew Many Cards


so why not give it a try i'm sure you will have fun.

I will also add this card to the following challenges
Anything goes challenge...Birthday/celebration
Bearly mine challenge..Bring on the bling
Try it on Tuesday......anything goes
Creative stamp friend........handmade background
Hooked on craft.....sweet treats
Paperplay challenge...anything goes
