Craft Your Days Away Challenge #9

I hope that its not too cold where you are today!  I am freezing cold and I am going to a wedding later today and I'm sure that I will be completely frozen, considering my outfit is more suitable for summer than a cold November day!  On the TV they have re-named it Snow-vember and I certainly can't remember seeing snow before December for a very long time.

We have a lovely new challenge for you over at Craft Your Days Away and before I announce it, I want to say how lovely the entries were for the Christmas Trees challenge.  Pop over to the challenge blog to see if you are one of our lucky winners.

The challenge for the next two weeks has been set by our DT member Sarah and it is:


So you can interpret that any way you like really with embossing/fabrics/papers, etc.  I have used a linen card, lace, paper doily, flowers, glitter and some distressing to add a variety of textures to my card.

For this challenge we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who are offering a $10 voucher to a lucky winner to spend in their store.

The image I have used is by LOTV and is coloured with pro markers, with added stickles glitter.  The circle sentiment is a rubber stamp by Cat's Life Press, which will be useful for so many occasions.  The paper is from DCWV and I had the heart shaped doilies from the Hobbycraft show at the NEC.  All other bits are from my stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
For fun challenges- Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky - Anything Goes
Delicious Doodles - Celebration

So, pop on over to our newest challenge at Craft Your Days Away and join in with the fun!
