Use A Sentiment

Good Morning/Afternoon,

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I trust everyone is fine, if not I will sent you big hugs to brighten your day.

Can you believe it's September, who ran away with August?

Well today over at Penny's Paper Crafty we are having another new
challenge and our theme this week is:-


This week we are sponsored by:-

Prize 3 Digi's of winners choice

Prize. $15 Gift Certificate

Again I have two cards featuring both our lovely sponsor's

There are plenty more fabulous  cards to see over on our
challenge blog, all done by my team buddies to give you
a little inspiration.  I hope you will pop over and have a look.

Card No 1 is from Crafty Sentiments Design


1. The sentiment in the circle was  supplied by
Crafty Sentiments Design and I took this into
my MCS graphics programme.
2. Firstly I added the background that is from the
new paper's (Squares by Lozzy) , then I added
the sentiment into the centre.
3. I decided to use the circle as a frame and added
pink roses and leaves ( all done from the graphics
programme). To add a little extra I incorporated
the two butterflies.
4. Once everything was printed I matted it onto
green card before adhering to an 8 x 8 card.
I added the border down the side using my
Woodward edge Cutter and completed the
design by adding Tonic Nuvo Crystal  gems
at the corners and glittered all the flowers
and butterfly wings.

Card No 2 - Using Deedee's Digi Images

1. This card consists of papers, image and sentiments that
were with the supplied kit. Kit is named Leave me Smiling
and can be purchased HERE
2. Again using my MCS programme I arrange the papers
and added a plain  brown background then added the
image onto it.
3. I also added one of the sentiments directly to the
paper but printed the other one separately.

4. Once printed I added it to kraft card and again adhered
to an 8 x 8 card.  The sentiment was also added to 
kraft card before die cutting it out. It was attached
to the card using foam tape.

5. To add that little extra I took some autumn leaves
from my stash and arranged then onto the card
using my glue gun.

There you have it, two cards made and not a Copic
pen is sight.

Hope to see you enter our challenge, come on you know
you want to!!!.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting.
