Driving Test

Firstly welcome to two new followers, Dotty and Jayne - I still can't believe folk choose to look at my cards and read my ramblings!

Have I gone too basic on today's card?

Needing a card for a young lad who has just passed his driving test, I went very CAS and graphic design-ish and created this:



Using a red 6x6 card base, I added a square of white card and arranged die-cut letters with the 'you passed' greeting. The 'L' plate was cut with some fancy edged scissors to give the ripped effect.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Watercooler Wednesdays #208 - all about occasions -

The Paper Shelter #370 - use letters or numbers
The Crafty Addicts #57 - anything goes

Party Like A Penguin

My third 'bird' card this month! I love this happy party penguin digi-stamp from 2 Cute Ink...



I've printed the image onto linen card, coloured with pro-markers and added a few pearl dots as embellishments. I've then mounted the image onto a black base card using foam pads - very CAS.

Lilac Birds

A quick card to share tonight - another for my Mother's Day pile...



I've used a really old digi stamp - I think from Birdie Brown - and coloured it in shades of purple/lilac. I've mounted the image on some pretty polka dot lilac paper and that's about it really!

Penguin Love

With the snow still on the ground outside, I was inspired to make a Christmas card - thought I'd start early this year!



I've used one of the cute penguin images from Digistamp Boutique (oh how I miss that store!). He's been coloured with pro-markers and I've used pale blue polka-dot patterned paper for the snowy background. I've used red circle border and placed the greeting under the scene to resemble a snow globe. Finally, I've used a die-cut pale blue snowflake with a glittery red heart as an embellishment.

I'm entering this card into the challenge at:

Winter Wonderland - anything Christmas
The Paper Players - love is in the air
Dragonfly Journeys #133 - I heart you

Crafty Friends #102 - animals/birds
