Flowers for Heidi

Hello my friends, well it's still raining here and quite chilly too. I stayed in today and made a couple of cards, tried a few new techniques that I haven't tried before, all in all a pretty constructive day. I do like the way this card has turned out, I've used a new stamp and new pens, it's the first time I have used distressing inks. The card is going into 5 challenges.

1. Simon Says Challenge: The Sketch is by Iris, and it's Heidi's birthday, she is giving away a fantastic prize, you must pop over and see the wonderful DT work.
2. Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge: It was Jane's turn to choose the challenge and she has given us a theme of Hearts & Flowers.
3. A spoonful of Sugar Challenge: The theme this week is distressing, they would like to see, tearing, chalking, inking, anything that would give your project an aged feeling. I've used pastel chalk sticks to age my white card flowers.
4. Stamp Something Challenge: The theme this week is to use your favourite stamp. I've used WOJ - I love all their stamp, but this one is so special to me.
5. Creative Inspirations Challenge: The theme this week is Brown & Blue, one of my favourite combinations. I think this colour scheme is very classy.

Thank you so much for visiting me, do pop in to see me again anytime. Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Suzi xx
