The title of todays post is a combination of a couple of challenge cards I have made! The challenge over at Papertake Weekly is 'Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow' so I have used a 3d snowman sticker that I got from Poundland last year! I have also used the sketch from Just Christmas and Birthday Cards so 2 challenges with 1 card, I just love the shine of the ribbon (I used to make a lot of bows like this when I did catering, bigger of course) and the papers go with the image perfectly! I will add the recipients name to the bottom right of the card when I decide who it is going to be for as I think it is a little bare. my second card is for the Whiff of Joy challenge (hence the whiff!) this week there is a fab sketch to use. I have held off painting this beautiful image for fear of spoiling her, I'm not really happy with it although I think it looks ok, just wish I could shade! She is so elegant, so graceful
and my last card for today is for my nephew who will be 6 on Sunday, he is into Ben 10 at the moment so when I printed off the picture to make the card for my friends son last month I printed extras for this card. I've made another DL sized card which is perfect as the image is tall and slim, I printed 2 copies, then cut them out, glued one flat onto the dp and then added the 2d image using foam pads. I didn't want to turn the text on it's side so it fitted onto the card, so I made a feature of it and added it accross the top corners on a foam pad, think it looks ok, will just need a bigger envelope!!
Well no jungle to watch tonight because of the blasted football gggrrrr..... but must get my place on the settee for the Dirty Dancing final (come on James!) followed by Desperate Housewives!
Oh and talking of 'snow' earlier, we have been forecast to get some Friday/Saturday!
