A Bit Of A Giveaway :)


It is indeed – and more of that in a sec :)

I was so honoured and delighted when the sweetness that is Emma asked me if I would like to be Guest Designer for them over at the Allsorts Challenge blog.

They have a FABULOUS theme this week is and it is embossing.

Picture 006 copy So this is my card.

I have been itching to ink up this cute little H&S baby ever since it arrived at chez piggy – it’s my first ever H&S set and I just HAD to use it for this challenge. I coloured her with the following Copics -

C3, E00, E21, E35, E50, R11, R20, RV00, V02, RV10, RV13

Picture 003 copy You can sort of see the embossing on the white panel (hopefully!!). I used a Scor-Pal board to make embossed diagonal lines and then just dotted a little bit of Glamour Dust where the lines intersected. IRL it does look quite effective even if you can hardly tell from this pic - and it so quick and easy to do.

The white scalloped layer under the image was made using a Nellies Multi Frame – rectangles and Tracy at Dies to Die For has these beauties in stock

Nellie's Multi Frames - Rectangle

and here they are.


The gorgeous pale pink organza ribbon and blooms are of course from the wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts


If you click on each pic it will take you to the right place on the website :)

The tag was made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder…..

… this one here.

It’s called It’s a Girl, and Paula and Sue at Crafts U Love have them in the sale – you can see them here peeps :) I just added a little bit of chalk – well you can never have too much pink can you lol xxx

Picture 004 copy

So that’s my card and I have to say a big thank you to all the girls at Allsorts for having me this week xxx

And as a proper thank you, I thought it might be nice to have a little bit of giftage to go with the challenge, so I have 5 sets of everything I used to make my card to giveaway. I must point out that you’ll get the image and NOT the actual stamp peeps, cos as much as I’d love to do that, I would be bankrupt and in the divorce courts if I did. But you’ll get the paper, blooms, die cut frame, ribbon, border etc etc :)

So if you want a set, all you have to do is make your card and then put Dawny after your name on Mr Linky – you'll find all the details over at the challenge - and I’ll post the winners next Saturday

Well we are off today to watch Kyla in her first ballet show - awww!! Then I have to get my card done for my last AFA post tomorrow. So I’ll see you back here in the morning.

Have the fabbiest of days and hugs to all xxx
