Two new challenges


Fox and Friends, in the case the little tortoise, has popped in to say Happy Birthday!

My daughter needed a birthday card for a party she's going to this weekend so I decided to try merging two challenges.  New ones for me.

The first is ColourQ where you are to use the following colours -


Don't they look scrummy together?  

And the second challenge is Freshly made Sketches which is only in it's second week.  For this challenge you are to follow the sketch in a clean style.  It doesn't have to be square but should be recognisable as the sketch. 


So onto my card.  I've used a Tempting Turquoise card base covered with Certainly Celery which has been embossed with Perfect Polka Dots.  My Whisper White panel was stamped with the tortoise from Fox and Friends in Basic Grey adding a little Certainly Celery with my Blender Pen.  I then added a pennant from Party This Way in Poppy Parade.  The Happy Birthday is from this set too and has been punched out with the Word Window Punch then set onto a strip of Poppy Parade card punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. A little Rhinestone Brad finishes off.

The sentiment in the pennant is a sneak preview from the new catalogue, Pennant Parade.  I know not much of  a tease but I might have some more for you in the coming weeks.  Remember the mini catalogue and retiral list are finishing at the end of this month.  You can order items from myself by contacting me on ails300@btinternet.com.  

Thanks for coming by today.  x

Hi Aileen! What a cute card, love the turtle! Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week.

I love Scotland. I lived at Pitcaple, outside Inverurie, 1990-1994. Wonderful views at Pitodderie estate, I lived in one of the farmhouses there! Miss all the castles but not the traffic and commute into Aberdeen! Have a wonderful Sunday!
