Afternoon everyone, well this week's challenge over at Less is More is the theme of FRIENDSHIP.
I decided to go with a digi stamp of children that I've had for ages. It's an illustration by Susan Beatrice Pearse and I used my new Chameleon pens that Karen bought me for my birthday and Christmas, to colour it in!

The base card is embossed using an Imagination stencil and lightly dusted with Spun Sugar DI. I cut out the image with a scalloped die and dusted that with the same ink. The sentiment is an old SeeDee one cut out using a matching smaller die and a pearl added. I'm also linking my card to the latest challenge over at Uniko Studio which is Love and Friendship.

It was a friend's birthday on Tuesday and I don't have a very good photo of her card but thought I'd share it just the same!

No blue involved just buff and chocolate using Sue Wilson dies for card shape and flowers and Tonic for the sentiment.

I've just heard that I have been chosen as one of the winners over at CASE-ing Christmas with last weeks card and am now officially one of Santa's Helpers :)

Such a pretty friendship card Val - love the colours you've used and the embossing with the Spun Sugar dusted on top is so pretty. The Just for You card is lovely and really like the buff and chocolate colourway. Congrats on your win at CASE-ing Christmas.
