Totally Papercrafts Challenge Week 1 - Friends

Happy weekend my lovelies, i hope your having a good one so far. The sun has been out today and it has amazingly lifted my spirits. My lovely friend Emma has started a new challenge Blog called Totally Papercrafts along with 5 of her other friends. This weeks challenge is called Friends. I have made the following card to enter this week. I love this Mo Manning image. The papers are from Anna Marie Designs and the chipboard letters are from a QVC TSV ive had for a couple of years!

Please head over to Totally Papercrafts to see the fabulous DT cards.

Unfortunately my distressing around the sides was not how id planned, but have left it as i didn't want to waste my coloured image!

Flowers are from Orchid Crafts. Gems were a special from Poundland!

Finally this is a card i made several weeks ago but hadn't had chance to post yet. I am loving giraffs at the moment and this is a penny black stickeroo.

I am hoping to be back later with some more sneak peaks from the soon to be released digi images by the lovely Tracy over at the Creative Cottage. So please come back later , big hugs Linda x

Hey hun hope youve had a good weekend? I was busy yesterday as Mum & Dad came over & I was having internet issues!! Back on net today & doing some blog hopping. I see we both stuck to our guns & got our cards made the other night!!!

These two are beautys too. I think your distressing looks cool. I think I need to look up a tutorial on distressing cos I'm useless at it (on cards anyways!!) I just love the giraffe too he's like Melvin off Madagascar!!
