Our KT gave me the idea for this card, she saw a word book on someones blog last week and asked if she could do a word book for my mothers day card...so after helping her sort out her letters, I decided to do one for Nige....

I would like to enter this in two challenges....first one is I Love Promarkers this weeks challenge is 'shape'.....
Second challenge is Fab n Funky where the challenge is also 'shape'...

Letters enlarged on PC and printed out and cut out in paper to match...

Over at Totally Papercrafts there is a sketch to follow this week...well I thought I would get my new Whiff Of Joy stamp out....I really enjoyed making this card the layout is really simple but very effective...love it...

This is my first attempt at using Tim Holtz distressing inks...kinda watched him all day on QVC, and was totally blown away by what he can do.....
So as I needed to do a card for Niges friends lad I decided to use Mikey from Charmed Crafts and enter him in their challenge....
Not quite sure if I've got this distressing right yet but practice makes perfect...and I think I need to get some more inks as only got two, didn't want to spend loads then not use them....

Three cards for one little lady

Over on Dustin Pikes blog he is asking for our help...he is offering three digi images of owls for us to use, to make cards for Delia who is a 10 year old girl, who is going through her second round of chemo for Acute Myeloid Leukemia....well I just had to do a card for her....

I just wanted to say thank you to Dustin for such gorgeous images to work with..
After seeing my card and asking what it was for, my girlies decided to both do a card as well....
KT used one of Dustins images and she loves the owls and has used them to decorate her Birdie scrapbook...

And our Danni just loves all of Dustins images and as she loves to draw, she decided to draw her own owl...

Thanks for looking xxx
