Good Morning, good morning!! I woke this morning to find Blackheath and most of London, I should think, covered in a blanket of snow!! It was snowing last night when I took the dog out for his last walk but it didn't look as though it was going to settle, so it was a surprise to see it so thick this morning. I'll take some photos of the heath later from my window and show you how pretty it looks (yeah, looks pretty but makes it hard work to do anything or go anywhere!! But for the moment I'm enjoying the scenery!)
Today there's a new challenge over at Scrap Creations and it's an easy one for you all - Anything Goes! We had some gorgeous images to work with from our sponsor, Digis with Attitude - who are offering a prize, so it's worth joining in!! Here's my card:
I actually tried to run some coredinations black magic card through my cuttlebug with a tiger stripe embossing folder, but as I was sanding it down to reveal the orange core, it kept tearing so I had to throw it away. Instead, to make this background, I cut a piece of orange Bazzill Basics card and a piece of black card to the size of the base card and then cut tiger stripes out of the black card at random - I really hope it doesn't look too 'Blue Peter' though!! I coloured up the image with promarkers (and used a tutorial from Craft Stamper magazine to 'ground' the image!), cut it out with my nesties and then added a big black bow (with Pebble Inc. ribbon), a Paper Cupcakes sentiment ticket and a zig zag border using my Bazzill Basics jewel template and a black pearl viva decor pen. How d'you think it turned out?
I did follow the Sketch Saturday week #131 sketch - but I'm not sure it'll count cos I've not put all my embellishments in the right place, I'll give it a go though!! I'm also going to enter the Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Week 26 Animals, For Fun Challenges - Anything Goes, Fab 'n' Funky Challenges - Week 50 Go with the flow (anything goes) - All for the second time, cos I can't see anything on there to say you can't enter more than once. And lastly, Creative Cowgirls Challenge #1 - Anything Goes, which says that you can enter two cards, so this'll be my second one!
Have good day, everyone! Stay warm to those of you who have got the cold weather like me! And don't forget to hop over and join in with the challenge! TTFN.....
