A true friend sticks close ...


... through good times and bad. That's the sentiment that's included in the delightful image from Deedee's digis 'forever friends' set which was the 'digi of the month' given for use in the February challenge (given to all those who participated in their January challenge).

I have to confess that I thought about this challenge the other day, but with everything that's going on, I forget again and am very grateful for Kathy's reminder this morning!

I found up some tiger print card that I ought ages and ages ago and used this for the background, with a piece of orange corrugated card and Paper Cellar black glittered strips down the side. I couldn't resist using another of the images from the set for the inside of the card, together with panels to give somewhere to write a personal message.

So this is for Deedee's February digi of the month challenge.

CHNC challenge 218: cut it up


For my CHNC challenge 218 that starts today I'm asking for something to be cut when making a Christmas creation - using scissors, die cutting, a guillotine/paper trimmer ... anything that cuts!

For my Design card I printed a lovely sheet by Carol Clarke which is available on Craftuprint volume 3, which will be given as one of the prizes this week, cutting out the pieces to decoupage the picture. I deliberately took the picture to try and show the decoupage, but when viewed face on, no shadows are seen.

This is my design card for Completely Christmas 52: anything goes with a twist ... add some texture. Please click the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and join in the challenge.

I used Deedee Designs images from Owl i-days, sponsor of the challenge. I added some soft texture with the mix of fibres and some different texture with the woodgrain effect card that I brushed with brown corduroy distress ink, with the addition of the little fabric heart.
