Farewell Crafty Girls!

Today I’m posting my last card as a DT member for the Crafty Girls.  I’ve had a lovely time as part of the team, but it’s time for a break; I’ve become more involved in my children’s school in the past few months, there have been job changes for hubby and it’s time to take stock and re-group!

We were very lucky to be sponsored by Dilly Beans – I love Megan’s images, and usually pick a pretty, girly image, but this time I decided to pick one of the flowery images – Grandpa’s Flowers.  I printed and cut the base image on the Silhouette, coloured it with a range of pink Pro-Markers, then cut and coloured an additional flower and leaf, which I popped up on 3D pads, over the edge of the kraft frame.

I was recently delighted to win a gift voucher for Cuddly Buddly – I finally got around to placing an order and received my goodies earlier in May.  Within my order, I had chosen some white chalk ink and a wood effect embossing folder, and I finally got to put it all to good use this afternoon!  My first attempt at weathered wood  🙂

The white cardstock base was looking at little too harsh, so I used a little Spun Sugar Distress Ink to soften it up a bit.  All that remained was to put it all together, with a little twine and a lovely heart button that I’ve had squirreled away since I took it off a pinafore my daughter had outgrown!

Before I go, I just want to wish Fiona, Erin and the team at Crafty Girls all the very best!
