TGF Card and Challenges (Do'in my own thing)

Well I managed to get some crafting done this afternoon and this is the end result. I didn't follow any sketches, challenges, nothing. Just had a play with my new stamp from the GFT and some bits Tracy at Dies to Die for kindly sent me with an order.

The papers are MME and this gorgeous stamp has been coloured with Promarkers, Lyra Polycolour Pencils and a White Gel Pen. The loop punched border, oval and scallop die and MS Heart were all from Tracy and I used these as a base for my card. All the other bits are out of my stash.

I've made this card for a friend in mind.

The snow has now stopped and the sun is trying to poke its head out of the clouds. Dont think there is anymore forecast now so may be able to get at least 2 of the children back to school tomorrow. Daniels now home and has again started his half term early. He had bad snow last time they were due to break up so another extended break for him.

Now I couldn't not take a look and see if my card fitted any challenges, and these are what I found ;-
Die Cut Dreams - Have a Heart
Sassy Designs, Die Cut Dreams - Hearts and Flowers
Creative Inspirations - Anyone for Leftovers? (lace and punched leaves from scrap of card)
MTTC - Hearts and Kisses
Roses on Paper - Pink, Brown & Cream


Jo has a fab candy on offer HERE
