Crafty Cardmakers 20 & fab news!



Time for a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight we'd like to see your distressed creations. I'm a bit late putting this on my blog because we've been camera shopping at last, yippee! I finally have a lovely new camera, so hopefully this will be the last slightly blurry pic on here - I just have to work out how to use the new one now! We were going to go out for the day here but it's one of those silly weather days when it's sunny for a few minutes followed by hail or rain, so we'll have to go another time. So hubby treated me to the camera as we didn't get to go out, and Morgan's happy too because we've said he can have the old one - he loves taking photos.

The cute image is from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers. The papers are K&Co sparkly sweet with coredinations cardstock. I embossed a piece of coredinations with the 'julie's jewells' embossing folder and then sanded it back, sanded all the edges of the coredinations and distressed all the paper and cardstock edges with my scissors. Then I added stickles to all the edges for a bit of sparkle. Added a piece of jute ribbon from Bunny Zoes, some tiny butterflies (used punched out pieces from MS butterfly border punch) and a computer generated sentiment.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

And now onto my fabby news... Last week I was feeling a bit sad that my DT term with Prairie Fairy had come to an end, then at the weekend I found out that the lovely Diane had chosen me for her new DT, so soon you'll be seeing some creations here using her gorgeous images that you can see here. There were so many talented people applying for the DT I didn't think I stood a chance, so I was very surprised and excited to see my name :o) Right, off to try and figure out the new camera!
