Well at the weekend we are off to Jimmy's Farm, hubby and I went to the harvest festival, where my fantasy husband James (piccie on the right) was cooking. Sadly he won't be there this visit although there are a couple of other chefs doing demo's. We are taking the girls this time as there are all sorts of things for them to join in with like crafts, competitions and of course Father Christmas will be there to! So I thought it was only right to make a card for Jimmy and all the workers! How thrilled was I when I received my friend Mel's christmas card yesterday to find some images inside, and this little piggie was one of them. Anyone who knows Jimmy Doherty and about his farm will know that he is a rare breeds pig farmer, and this image was just perfect for my card! I used a tartan paper for the top and the paper does have holly and berries on it. I felt that it wasn't christmassy enough so added the eyelet with the christmas tree charm and made with love charm and a few red gems to bling it up a bit! I printed the sentiment on my pc.
I have used the sketch from the One Stop Craft challenge this week.My second card is made using my faberoonie new WOJ stamp which arrived yesterday and was inked immediately!! Now I'm not at all sure about the sponged background and think I might just stick to doing sky type sponging in future, but I guess it looks a bit different lol!! I have used the Friday Sketchers sketch for this card and would also like to enter it for the Secret Crafter challenge which is 'christmas trees'.
As I have used the colours Red and Green on both cards I would like to enter both (not sure if you can) into the Cupcake Crafts challenge which is to use this colour combo.
