Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card & My Good News




Its monday and week 3 of the school holidays. 6 days and we are off on our holiday so counting down the days and a very busy week ahead of me. Today at Cupcake Craft Challenge, we have a "Beach Themed" Challenge chosen by Sandy, for you to try. Have to say out of all the stamps I own, I am pretty limited in this field so chose to go with my Pink Cat Studio Stamps. I've coloured the image with Promarkers and used Copics for the skin. The papers are BG Lemonade and the fishy border is from a Woodware Set of stamps. Used my MS Doily Punch and added some Pebbles Inc Candy Dots along the bottom border.

Are this weeks sponsor and they are offering a free Digi Image.

Do pop on over to the challenge blog and see what gorgeous creations the rest of my DT buddies have come up with. We may not be having the best of summers here in England, but we can at least imagine what we'd like to see!!

Talking of Promarkers, I have been asked to be a GDT at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge, I dont now how to say No, because I love my crafting so much. Thanks girls for the offer.......
Have a great week and I'll be back tomorrow with another card!
