My first Challenge Entry


I am very excited today, as I am uploading my first ever Challenge Blog entry.

I really wanted to step out of my regular comfort zone and I think I have really done that here!

The flowers are a digital stamp from the Complete Cardmaking Issue 27 disk, coloured them using Letraset promarkers (Lilac, Bluebell, Blossom and Duck Egg), I glittered the edges with Diamond Stickles and the buttons are from my vast button collection. The papers are by K&Co (random sheets that were gifted to me) and I used peel offs for the sentiments - which I coloured blue using permanent markers.

Lots of people enter more than one challenge, but this is my first time, so I am going to take it easy and enter 2 challenges!!
- do you stack up - Cute as a button
- Kaboodle Doodles - Do it with digis.

On another happy note, today was going to be a sad day for Hubby and I, as we had to send our beloved car Chunky to the scrapyard. When the guy came to collect him this morning he announced that Chunky is going to become a Stock Car!!! Yay! What a lovely outcome.

Happy Tuesday everyone.
