Good Morning Ladies,
I missed two cards off of the Animal Challenge cards post on Sunday, I always promise that if you go to the trouble of making a card I will always share it on the blog, even if it arrives late. I think that is in only fair that if you make the time to support these challenges each week that I make sure that everyone gets to see your cards. Not only that you can guarantee that your card will inspire someone to have a go at a style or technique that you have used on your card.
The first card today is Lorraine's Animal Challenge card, Lorraine has used some lovely Blue patterned paper that has pretty yellow stars all over, such a bright and cheerful colour combination, I like that it's not 'traditional' Christmas colours, I can see those super cute Reindeers making someone smile too, Lorraine has done a 'Double Z Fold' card, which works perfectly with that design, it has given me an idea for a card too, so watch this space!!
Thank you so much Lorraine for making time to take part in the Challenge and for your inspiration.
I know that you had a very tough week last week, so it really touched my heart that you took part, sending you huge squishy hugs. xxxx
The 'Tigger' themed Animal Challenge card was made by Karen's friend Kat, Kat has used a lovely background paper and has Tigger Bouncing, Bouncing, Bouncing along on his tail, such a fun card, Kat chose Tigger as the theme for Karen's Birthday card as she knows that Karen is a huge Tigger fan. I love how Kat has personalised your card for you too Karen, I bet this card bought a huge smile to your face when you opened it.
Thank you so much Kat for allowing Karen to share your card with us, we would love to see more of your cards too, so please feel free to take part any time you like. xxxx
Busy few days for me as I had 50 swaps to make for our Onstage event this coming Saturday, I am also making my first ever Pocket Letter for a swap with Danielle, that's on top of all the blog cards etc so I am virtually living in my craft room at the moment, well it seems like that anyway.
Sue is coming over tomorrow so atleast I know I have an extra pair of hands to help assemble my swaps, I have die cut most of them, I stuck a load of them together with Red Line tape because it is easier to use as they have a particular fold, Red line tape usually has an instant and long lasting hold, oh no, I think 18 out of the 20 I had stuck had come undone, so I had to re-stick them all.
Well I guess life would be boring if it was straightforward!!
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
