Finally!!!

I managed to do 2 challenges and boy was it hard, having not made a card for years. Well not years, but months. Well not months but it has been a while lol xx And the longer I go without making a card, the harder it seems to be to be to get going again. Is this just me or do we all go through this???

So anyway, the first one is for 2 Sketches 4 You and is based on Laura's fabulous sketch. This is such a lovely sketch and I will use it again definately. This is actually for someone - can't say who until they have received it (intrigue intrigue). The papers are the new PP download, One in A Melon. These are just some of the prettiest papers I've seen in a while. The ribbon is Poppicrafts and I used my new Martha Stewart border punch (again hee hee) which I LOVE.
This is my card for PTW which this week is 'button it'. The ribbons and buttons are all Poppicrafts, the papers are PP natch, and is that my new Martha Stewart punch I see. Did I mention that I love it!!! The little heart is cut out from one of the One In A Melon papers and I went over it with Glossy Accents so that it looks like one of them there dome sticker thingies - sorry, I can't remember for the life of me what they are called!!! It looks a bit weird here but in real life it looks quite cool. And a fraction of the cost of the stickers whose name I cant remember!!!

Dawny, these cards are beautiful. It is strange I was looking on your page yesterday and just loved your work, and took particular note of the lovely Cosmic glitter you had used. Then low and behold I find you have nominated me for an Award - gosh how proud am I xxxxx I have already posted it to my blog page, and have linked your blog page, I just need now to figure out how to do the rest as I am completely new to blogging (only had my page a week!!!) But I will get there. Loads of love and a great big thank you xxxx

That's a really cool card. I didn't download the PP as I really couldn't see that I would get much usage out of it, but your's is great.

BTW any chance of finding out where you got the Martha Stewart punch ? I've seen it on a couple of cards and NEED it LOL :)

Kathryn said...

Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous!!

Made by Mandy said...

Dawny Thank you so very much for pointing me towards the punch. I am now the proud owner of one and I have put a proper and public thankyou on my blog.
