as promised

as promised, here is the other card i made to match the one from yesterday.

how cute is that bird! all supplies are exactly the same as yesterdays. i think i am finally getting the hang of this photographing items thing! my lightbox (aka a big piece of white cardstock!) works beautifully.

so now for todays challenge -

i challenge you to use brown and pink on a creation (doesnt have to be a card...maybe an otp? or a layout? or maybe yes to a card?!)

have fun with it!

Pink and green card

here is a card I made for a swap over at "first Swap Blog". its for the pink and green swap, and now that the recipient has received it i can share!

the paper i used for this was rescued from the 50 cent pile at my local scrap shop, the pink and green card was rescued from my scrap box! i used my hello birdie stamps for the sentiment and the branch, the sparklies came with the stamps (bargain!) the little owl was my bargain of the week! a full sheet of cute owls , birds, and leaves for......guess how much......$1.95!!!!! so all up this card cost next to nothing! but it is just so cute..i had to make another one just for me seeing that this one was jetting over to holland so stay tuned for that one (it has a cute bird insted of an owl!)

so thats it for today, but before i go...a challenge just for you! (well this is a challenge blog! lol)

i challenge you to make a card using a scrap of patterned paper that you have had for ages ...the longer the better

have fun

i decided to throw myself right out of my comfort zone with this card....buttons....distressing....background stamping....the colours...and the stamp is soooo not my style. but overall i like the way this card turned out :-)

i challenge you today, to get out of your comfort zone and do somrthing you wouldnt normally do!
have fun with it!
