Love in Red, White and Black



Hi,

I was very late getting up today and didn't get up until 11am, which is quite the achievement for someone that usually gets up around 7am everyday.

So whilst ignoring the usually Sunday feeling I decided to make a simple Valentines card. I'm going to give this one to my other half (shhh don't tell him)


I decided on this style and these colours because I wanted to enter the following challenges


http://cupcakeinspirations.blogspot.co.uk/  See colour scheme below.

Pretty hat lady

Hi all,

Rick gave his DT team a special challenge this month, he asked us to make a card that 'exemplifies you as a crafter'

I'm a big fan of fussy cards, which lots of layers and pretty elements such as flowers. I also like shaped cards and bright colours.

Rick has lots of images that are part of the Hat ladies series and they are my very favourite digi stamps. You can find this pretty lady in Rick's Zibbet shop https://www.zibbet.com/…/do-you-get-my-point-hat-digital-st…
