Craft Your Days Away Challenge #12

What an amazing response we had to our last challenge over at Craft Your Days Away.  The only problems was, there were so many entries, that we had trouble keeping up with the commenting on the lovely entries. You really did an amazing job on the challenge!

This fortnight our challenge is "Love" so we want to see your loved-up creations.  We are being sponsored by the lovely Meljen Designs who is offering 4 of her lovely digis to one lucky winner. 

The DT were lucky enough to have some Meljen images to play with and I just loved this one with the cute cat getting a great big hug!  It was hard to pick which design to use; they were so completely adorable.


I have coloured the image with pro markers and *surprise, surprise* there's not an ounce of glitter to be seen on this card!  The papers are from a neglected Sizzix pad Earth Tones and the little metal heart brad is Papermania.  The sentiment stamp "sending you hugs" was part of a freebie set from the current issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine.  I've also used my MS border punch and a Sizzlits Corner Accent die cut for the swirls.

Some come and Craft Your Days Away and show us your "Love" themed creations!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I used their sketch
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - It's a couple thing (hope the cat counts - well, I'd rather be with my cat than with some people!)
Totally Papercrafts - Add a heart
Fab 'n' Funky - Animal Magic
I love pro markers - keep it sweet and simple

Thanks for looking!
