Sweet Stampin' Challenge


Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

Use Kraft

It's a particular favourite of mine. I love kraft card but concerned if I use it too much everything looks just a little...er... brown.

Our sponsor this week is Cuddly Buddly and our monthly sponsor is The Ribbon Girl who are offering a £10 voucher to the monthly winner.

And so on to my card for today - this is actually Sandra's daughter's birthday card which was in mid July and by happy coincidence I used kraft... I didn't set out to do so but the papers I picked kinda lent themselves to using it.

I've used a digi stamp from a company I'd never used before but I do like their images - Time For Tea Designs.

Postscript on the Grand Calibur. The handle snapped in half so, having read about the Australian who was driving his car without a steering wheel (using clamps) I tried to turn the thing using pliers. Nuff said. xx

Sandra said...

So much better in real life and the colouring is awesome.
