Well, has anyone called back to check what my other exciting news is? Here goes - I am thrilled to have been asked if I would like to be Guest Designer for Craft Your Days Away 1st birthday challenge today - how good is that? (big smiles from me!!).
So, here's the card I made. This is a card I made for a friend of Eleri's, who had her 6th birthday party yesterday.
The image is the other half of the image I used the other day (Molly and Tom from Digistamp Boutique), and I've coloured her with promarkers. The papers are My Minds Eye Quite Contrary - I've nearly finished this pad, which is very disappointing! The sentiment was from the pad too. I've added stickles to her goggles and around the image, added some die-cut flowers, and popped on some Papermania adhesive shimmer dots to the centres of the flowers, to the dot above the 'i' in the sentiment and to each corner of the card (unfortunately, you can hardly see them in the photo).
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - the sketch I followed
The Paper Shelter - Flowers, flowers, flowers
Totally Papercrafts - Holidays
Charisma Cardz - a Bingo challenge and I chose Flowers, Gems and Circles
So now I'll show you the present I made for Eleri's friend. I made a necklace and bracelet set, along with a keyring.
I have to say I am a bit disappointed with the keyring as I hadn't got the same colour beads left as I used in the necklace and bracelet, and I hadn't got a letter I in the same sort of beads as the others for the name, so I had to mix the beads up. I prefer things to match much better than this. But I hope Eleri's friend likes her gift. I popped some money in the gift box as well, just in case LOL!
Well, that's it from me - I have been making another bracelet this evening, and I have some more cards to make over the next couple of days. So, hopefully, it won't be long before I pop back here again.
I want to finish by saying a HUGE Thank You to the ladies at Craft Your Days Away for inviting me to be a Guest Designer today. And thank you fellow bloggers for taking the time to check my blog, and have a lovely weekend!
Love, Andrea xx
