The super cute image is from Kenny K - digi of course! Her name is Soho, and I love her sassy attitude, my DIL is actually very sweet, but this does look like her, which is why I've coloured her (using Copics) with dark hair and eyes. Kenny K's Krafty Girlz challenge this time is "Add some Texture"; there's plenty of texture here with all the layers and that fabulous rhinestone trim (gift from my folks)
The papers are from my stash, and a cheapie pad I got in BigW!! I bought the border pre cut from Poppy's Cabin, but I think it's a Martha Stewart punch, I've also used Classic Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties; The Crafty Pad wants us to use 3+ punched shapes for their challenge, so I'm entering there. The sentiment is computer generated, even the little flourish at the bottom (using a free Floral font "Floralia" from dafont.com) Crafty Creations Challenges want us to make a card with a sentiment on it... too easy!
Gem of a Challenge this time around is for a monochromatic card,Not Christmas plus a sentiment; tick tick tick, I'm in! Fairy Fun Fridays has a Blue and White theme, so I'm in there too.
As we gave Elaine a gift voucher for a massage and an itunes card as her present, the inside of the card serves as a double gift card holder: really easy, all you have to do is only glue on three sides of the dp panels, as seen in these pictures:
The Paper... Shelter has Celebrate as its challenge theme,
Papertake Weekly and
Divas by Design both have Anything Goes challenges so I'm entering there too.
Well, that's about the fastest post I've ever done, I'll be back in a few days with my second Sweet Stampin' Guest spot. Until then Happy Crafting, Donna
