It Takes Two and some exciting news

It's Friday and that means time for another challenge at Winter Wonderland. It's my turn to host this week and I have chosen the theme of It Takes Two, so we want to see two people/animals/snowman on your cards. We are sponsored this week by Simon Says, so definitely worth playing along. I have chosen to use this sweet Nellie Snellen image, edged with DI Worn Lipstick and coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with a little gold Sakura pen. I've added German glass glitter for the fur. If you use this with PVA glue rather than a glue pen it gives a really fluffy look. The papers are Forever Friends Timeless, a bargain a while ago in Hobbycraft. I've used an MS holly border punch, Craftwork cards sentiment, scrim, MS punched snowflakes, Go Kreate die cut tag and snowflake charm tied with baker's twine.

There's a lot of Easter challenges this week but at ABC Christmas the challenge is F is for furry friends and Incy Wincy have a tag it challenge so I would like to enter my card into those two challenges.

Now for my exciting news. I have been chosen as a guest designer for The Stamp Basket for April. My posting day will be Monday so my first post for them will be on Monday 2 April. They stock so many wonderful products in their store and they currently have an Easter sale running until next Thursday and a weekend sale so hop over and check them out. I've been sent some gorgeous goodies to play with and can't wait to show you my first card on Monday.


Have a good weekend everyone and remember my candy ends tomorrow.
