How are you all this fine Monday? I'm sad :( my time with Craft Your Passion has come to a speedy end :( I have really enjoyed my GDT post so thank you so much for having me guys I really appreciate it. Some of the challenges took me out of my comfort zone, exactly what I was looking for.
The challenge this week is go Monochrome with any choice of colour. I chose blue but like I said you can choose any colour so come on show us what you've got.
This card was lovely to put together. The embossing was done via my cuttlebug and the d'vine swirls folder. I then rubbed some pigment ink over the embossed card. I cut the digi out using my craft knife, added a little glitter (why not) and a little colouring with promarkers. The sentiment is hand written. I cut the sentiment tag using my Martha Stewart punch to create an interesting edge. This card was really easy to put together, great as Christmas is just peeking around the corner now and gosh do we ever make enough cards for Christmas lol. Some years I must admit I have had to make a last minute dash to the shops for some Christmas cards as I haven't made enough but this year I am determined NOT to do that so quick simple yet elegant cards are just perfect.
Right goodbye from me from my Craft Your Passion post, I will come back and visit, don't worry.
Thanks for having me and for all your lovely comments

And yes I had some fun taking the pics too lol
I love the way the colouring turned out too. I am thinking a lot more before I plonk colour onto my images. I always added shading but sometimes it didn't flow throughout the image as it should, so I need to get this right now-not that anyone has noticed or if they have they've been too polite to say lol xx
So this card is trying to express all things I love, obviously pink has to be number 1 however I tried to keep it to a minimum as the 2nd thing was to try something new and challenge myself, this for me was to try a different colour and brown it was!!! Number 3 CAKE lol, now who doesn't like cake hey. I love decorating cakes, when I lived at home we always baked at the weekends but seeing as there was 5 of us and lots of family and friends popping over throughout the weekend you couldn't pig out on your creations which was great. Seeing as there is only me and the hubby at home baking is out of the question otherwise we would just pig out completely lol. Infact I nearly asked the hubby for a cake decorating kit for Christmas but I think that could get dangerous and we would be piling on the pounds in no time so for now I will refrain. Don't worry there is plenty of crafting goodies I have asked for lol.
Sorry this post has been me waffling on as usual. So to the ingredients: DP is Dovecraft, Image Forever Friends-coloured using Promarkers, little brown chalk to distress the edges, bit of glitter, a foam sticky sentiment and gorgeous blue satin ribbon.
Right guys, off to bed now, see you next week, have a fab one
Happy Monday to you all. I've had a lovely relaxing weekend. Last week was a busy one at work so I needed a nice relaxing weekend and lots of crafting, just perfect. My time with Craft your passion is quickly coming to an end :( next Monday is my last week. I have really enjoyed my GDT post. So this week we are looking for you to follow our sketch and create something fabulous, come on guys lets see what you can come up with.
My card this week is for a boy, I'm pleased with the way this turned out, cards for men are usually difficult for me but this just turned out lovely I think and I didn't even think about it too much I just did it. Maybe that's just what I should be doing right... I used football paper from Forever Friends, I embossed a circle with a large circle folder, I coloured the image with my beloved promarkers, added a few gems and a sentiment on a tag with a tiny bit of ribbon.
Come on guys, come and join in with us this week and have fun x
