Hello & Goodbye xx

Good morning everyone from a rather frosty Essex. Well I have had so much going on over the last week & I'm not sure it is going to slow down this week either!!

Today I have mixed emotions as I am here for my last week with Incy Wincy Designs. I have been on the DT for 6 months & have loved every minute. I will definately be hanging around entering their challenges, so they don't get rid of me that easily. But as they say " as one door closes.....", this is my first week with the brilliant girls over at Daisy Doodles!!!! The girls here are a blast.... no pun intended really. So as I have 2 cards for you this morning we had better get cracking.



This week we were challenged to make a card featuring Lace & Pearls. The winner this week will receive a $10 voucher to spend over at Aspire To Thrive.

I was moosying through my stash & I discovered these great MME papers that were a freebie on a magazine. The image is called Chelsea & I have coloured her with mainly Promarkers. Then I added this fab flower.

I then decorated the inside of the card using a smaller image of Chelsea & just colouring in the rose. I then created an area on the right of the card for writing a message.

Challenges I have entered.......
Sketch....... Sketch 72 .......Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Theme....... Use a Freebie ........Crafty Cardmakers
Theme....... Flowers .......ABC Challenge
Theme....... Anything Goes .......2 Sisters Challenge
Theme....... Use A Digi .......Stamp Something

Papers : MME Quite Contrary
Image : Chelsea from Aspire to Thrive
Flower : Made from a Prima Painterely Petal & White Flower with Pearl Stamen, both from stash
Paper Lace & Pearls : From Stash

Pens Used :
Copics : G17, R29
Promarkers : Blossom, Blush, Cardinal Red, Chestnut, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Coral, Marsh Green, Pastel Pink, Rose Pink, Satin, Soft Peach, Tan



This week at Daisy Doodles we thought we would start with a "Bang" so want to see your Bonfire Night projects. Now this is a big English Tradition everyone loves Bonfire Night. I decided that the only thing I could create was "Bangers" Now this isn't my usual sort of DT project but I think it works.

Again if you are not aware of English traditions, we loving refer to sausages as "Bangers". I coloured the rockets in using Paint Shop Pro X & stuck them to wooden tea stirers. I then spelt the word "Bang" with peas.
If you are not familiar with Daisy Doodles challenges make sure you pop over to the blog to see what is going on. Also make sure you check out the other DT as most of us are on our 1st week & would love for you to make us feel welcome xx Clare x
