What a strange day weather wise today, tried to snow, had some hailstones, and now can't decide whether to be sunny or cloudy. So I decided to stay in and make a card.

I used one of favourite images by LOV, (who have free postage on their site at the moment) and stamped it in Rich Cocoa Memento ink, coloured in with my promarkers of course. Bought another new Nestie set, Large Scalloped Circles so used them with the Large Circle set. Backing papers are DCWV and ribbon, chipboard and flowers from my stash.

I managed to find a few challenges to enter too:

Pile It On - #18 Cute a& cuddly

Blue and Brown

Loved making this card today, first time I have had a chance to sit in my new craft room and enjoy the peace and quiet. The card itself is for a friend of mine, and although the image looks strange, lol, trust me its exactly right for her. Can't say too much more cos though I think she doesn't look at my blog, you never know.

Used my typical square card, a mixture of K&Co and DCWV papers, stamped the image which is from The Image Tree and has to be one of my oldest stamps, in black memento and coloured in using my promarkers. Used some Stampin Up and Martha Stewart punches. Flowers are from wild orchid crafts.

Managed to fit it in to loads of challenges too, why don't you pop over to their blogs and see the great DT cards.
