I have made a card which ties in with a few challenges but the main reason I made it was for the DT call for Susie's new challenge "Susie's Sassy Challenge" she is looking for a dt member so I thought I would give it a go. You can read all about it here. So for the call you have to make a Christmas Card or project. Wish me luck!
I am really annoyed because it is pouring of rain and I couldn't get outside to take a photo so I had to make do with this one. It's not as clear as I would like especially for applying for a DT call but I didn't want to wait until I could get a better photo because the DT call might be over by the time the rain stops!
I am also entering this card into a few challenges#
Die Cut Dreams - Winter Wonderland
High Hopes - Non Traditional Christmas
Paper Play - Favourite Embelishments, I used flowers and pin
Back to the card, the beautiful Sugar Nellie image was a RAk I got from Lorraine and I couldn't wait to colour her, isn't she beautiful? Of course I coloured her with Copics and used some Frosted Lace on the snowflakes. Papers are Stampin Up and Basic Grey. Flowers are a mix from my stash, pin and tulle is from Tabby Crafts. I also rubbed some of the stickles on the flowers with my finger to give them some sparkle. I really want some glimmer mists but the craft shop near me doesn't sell them :( Think I will have to do some shopping online soon.
Now the other day, I said I would be back later with a wallet I made for By the Cute and Girly, but I forgot lol, so here it is a few days late! It has been on the challenge blog since the first but as the challenge runs for a month, I wanted to space my cards/projects out on my own blog throughout the month. If you haven't entered yet, you still have loads of time to do so. the theme is "Autumn Glory" and you can make whatever you want. And of course there are some fab prizes up for grabs.
You may remember that me and my Daughter Rhianna made one of these a few weeks ago. They are so easy to make and only take 5 minutes to finish.I would probably never actually use this for anything but it was fun to make.
I first cut the wallet shape out of some cardstock then used 2 sheets of 6x6" K&Co papers to cover both the outside and inside. The acorn and letters are from Summer Driggs Fall digi set and a button from my stash.
And the inside
The tree is another element from Summer Driggs' set and the flowers are Primas. The tickets were stamped onto white card and then sponged them with some distress ink. The stamp was a freebie from a magazine.
Well that's it from me for now, becuase the kids are driving me up the wall!
