A COUPLE OF CHALLENGES



Hi. Today's card is for this week's Anyone for Anya challenge which is a 1-2-3 Recipe, I have used 1 image,2 paper's and 3 embellishments and also Stamptacular sunday challenge which is Layer it up, I have 5 layers. I have used this sweet CC Designs image, coloured her with polychromos and cut her out. Paper's are Papercellar ,ribbon is dovecraft,brad's are doodlebug, Anita's peel-offs and Handstitching, it does take a while but I think it's oh so worth it plus I find it really relaxing :)


I've been meaning to show this since my birthday back in July.Well as you can see from the card it was my 30th and my lovely boyfriend made me this card using some of his character's.This is Bert badger and Molly mouse, are'nt they the cutest!? My very own handpainted 'Woodland Folk' birthday card,I was super happy I can tell ya ;) As I mentioned yesterday 'Woodland Folk' is being released in november as craft products by docrafts...I can't wait!!! And if you like Bert then you'll love the free stamp available with the nest issue of Creativity in november ;) I think he has to be the cutest badger I've ever seen but I'm biased lol.
Well I'm off to have some lunch and then craft the afternoon away :)
Thanks for stopping by and for all the lovely comments you leave xx

Hi Amanda. Your card is gorgeous, lovely colours/colouring. BF's card great too. My hubby made a card for me a couple of years back with my age on but the dufus had me a year older than I was!! I didn't let him live that one down I can tell you! Anyway he has sent me shop bought since then.xx Jenny xx
