Anything Goes In The Crafty Girls Challenge

I can’t believe it’s Thursday already…  The weeks seem to be flying by at the minute!

Today’s post is for the new Crafty Girls Challenge.  This fortnight we’re sponsored by A Day For Daisies and Aurora Wings and the theme is “Anything Goes”, so a nice and easy one to join in with.

I chose “Babies Smile” from A Day For Daisies.  The image simply reminded me of the early days with my children; I remember feeling like I couldn’t look away, just in case I missed something!  Nowadays, if I look away, trouble usually follows 😉

I coloured the image with ProMarkers, keeping to a very simple palette, then popped the frame (from the Silhouette store) over the top.  The embossed background was created by embossing the Swiss Dots folder onto some linen marked card.  The striped paper is from a Docrafts paper stack.  Finally, two little white, flower shaped buttons with some pink and white twine tied through.

Deck The Halls

Another Christmas card to share with you today!  This card was inspired by the current sketch challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch:

The holly was cut from green cardstock on my Silhouette, with the berries cut from red glitter cardstock for a little sparkle!  The background is kraft card embossed with Swiss Dots embossing folder for the Cuttlebug.  For the sentiment, I used a lovely scallop frame which is part of an amazing font called 09KutUps from CleverSomeday.  The letters were cut by the Silhouette and backed with kraft.  I popped the card together using 3D foam pads to create some depth beneath the sentiment and the holly.
