Ellephantastic Challenge #23

Morning everyone. Well I certainly have been busy this week!! I have some exciting news to tell you too.

As many of you know I run my own little webstore. Well we are in the middle of creating a brand new webstore that is more user-friendly. Well to coincide with the launch hopefully next week we will be adding Letraset Promarkers to the list of products that we stock :-) So as a special offer if you pre-order before Midnight Mon 7th Feb you will receive free p&p on your order. If you spend £10 or more you will also be entered into a prize draw to win 2 Pink Gem Design Stamps. Just message me for details here

Right onto this month's challenge........

The lovely Jill has chosen the theme of Distressing with Love. We have a wonderful collection of sponsors again this month so make sure you pop by & enter.

I went for a pink & green theme for this card. So not my favourite choice of colours but I think I handled them pretty well!! I coloured the image using promarkers & distressed the background papers with a piece of sandpaper. The colours aren't too great on the photo as it was late at night that I took the photo. xx Clare x
