Well what a weekend that was. I have just come back from our daughter's Hen Do. I was a bit worried before I went as I was the only older person going. The groom's mother declined the invitation to join us. But I had so much fun. It is so good that I have an extra day to recover. The plan is for us to go to Mottisfont and join the National trust. We need to be members when we go the Liverpool so that is cheaper for us to visit the Beatles houses (which is already booked). It should be a nice day out today I hope they have one of their art exhibitions on in the house.
Being the first of the month the new challenge starts on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog. We have not one but two sponsors this month they are Star Stampz and Ppinky Dolls. Prizes are being offered by both sponsors. This makes it a good challenge to enter and the theme is Anything Goes.
For the background I used one of my Pixie Powder and Brushos kitchen roll pieces. I thought the colours of this one suited the colours I had used on the image.
If you click on this image it will take you to the store there are many cute images there.
This the Happy Birthday die designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expression. I cut it twice so I could use the black version to create a shadow I find this helps the sentiment to stand out from the background.
Isn't this image cute? It is called My Sweet Rose and it is available from the Star Stampz Etsy shop. I printed her on to water colour card and coloured her with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I cut the frame for the image with my Double Pierced Rectangle dies.
I hope you will have time to join in with our challenge it is open for the whole month and the design team will come by to comment. Have a great week.
I would like to enter challenge 97 at the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog, challenge 45 at the Make my Monday Challenge blog , challenge 72 at the Dies R Us Challenge blog and challenge 43 at the A Bit More Time to Craft Challenge Blog.
