With love .......

and luck.  Today is the opening night for my 15 year old's school production and she is very very nervous.  I have made her a card to wish her luck.

I love these fabulous images from Make it Crafty.  I have coloured here with promarkers in my daughter's favourite colours.  The papers are a selection of Tulip (From Papermania) and Oxford (Kanban)  The two bows are both from Papermania and the sentiment from Kanban.  I have finished the card off with some card candi.  The shapes were cut using Spellbinders Nesties on my trusty Cuttlebug.  Off to get my daughter from school now and to give her this card.

Over on the Anything Goes Blog.

I am soooo excited this is my first DT card for the fabulous Anything Goes Challenge Blog.  As you have probably guessed this fortnight's challenge is a Bingo Board.  You can use any line horizontally or vertically or diagonally through the middle.

I chose the top line and here is my card

I have papers from stash for this card.  The sentiment is by Kanban has been mounted onto a circle of card cut with Spellbinders Nesties - as is the image.  The ribbon and charms are also from my stash.  All the edges of the paper have been distressed with a TH distressing tool and then inked with TH distressing inks.  I finished the front off with a few bits of card candi.  The fantastic Stampavie image is coloured with promarkers and edged with Dovecraft Chalks.  

I hope you like it.

For this challenge I made a memory book out of paper bags.  I used Tim Holtz papers and black card from my stash.  The ribbons were from Stampin-up.  The tags and the fantastic car on the front were cut using my cricut.  All pages were edged with TH distress inks.
