So many gorgeous images to decide from ... and by entering our current challenge you may win 4 digis of your choice from Meljen's!
I couldn't decide which image to play with .... so I used 4 of the 8 we were given to play with. I would have loved to have had time to use them all but as you may have noticed I haven't been around much this past week. I'm a stay at home Mum but I also work at my old job part time ... and I have been on night shift. So alas I ran out of time.
Anyway I have waffled on enough ... here are my cards....
1) embossed the base card through the cuttlebug
2) embossed the little flowers through the cuttlebug using the same folder as the background
3) used the sewing machine!!!!!!! only my second time sewing on a card ... must do it more often as it's so easy.
4) some Glossy Accents on the tape measure and the shoes to make them look 'hard' and shiny
5) a rhinestone in the middle of the flower
and of course you guessed it .. I dragged the ink pad over the white cardstock to tie it all in.
And last but not least a card using the adorable Snowmen from Meljen's.
Don't forget to head over to Crafting For All Seasons to check out the magnificent creations from the rest of the Design Team ... they are gorgeous!
And when you are done ... get your thinking cap on and create a project with 'Texture' and you may the winner of that $20 gift card to The Paper Shelter and 4 digi images of your choice from Meljen's.
Thanks for stopping by and reading this terribly long post :)
