Joining in Challenges


Last year, I tried to join in with blog challenges, but never seemed to have the time, or I was ill. etc. this year, I decided that I would try really hard to get more involved with challenges if I could. To that end, I have made a card this week that qualifies for two challenges woo hoo! Firstly DP2 challenge blog has the challenge of 'birthdays' this week, and my card is a birthday card for my SIL, using one of Mo's cute images, coloured with Coloursoft pencils and Zest it. I have used Crate paper designs and two Martha Stewart punches to decorate my card, punching out a little cupcake, and covering it with stickles. I punched two holes in it to make it look like a button, and added a piece of twine. I stamped an Elusive Images sentiment to finish. Secondly, Friday Sketchers has a sketch to follow, which really caught my eye. I will definitely use this sketch again, as I like the layout so much. Bye for now, Judith x

Oh this is so cute Judith. The background papers are lovely and I really like what you did with the little cupcake but most of all I adore that hamster. He's just wonderful with his fat cheeks. Beautiful colouring too.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a kind comment on Jamie's blog too.

Hope you're keeping ok at the moment. I daren't ask about the weather as we have black ice everywhere today and now it's starting to snow again!

This is lovely Judith. The papers are pretty and that little hamster is so cute. When the kids were little we had various hamsters and some of them were nicer than others!!

I love your layout- and that image is so cute- looks like the animals/frogs on cupcakes is a popular theme!!!
For the soldier boxes, I send them to www.anysoldier dot com I pick platoons with a more mature leader and lots of kids, or I send to local kids.........
Bless you!
