Pub night out

Here's something a little different today. A fun card featuring a DigiStamp Boutique image for their monthly competition. The playing cards were from a Christmas cracker 3 or 4 years ago. Much better than the usual rubbish you get in crackers as I've used a few of these over the years. They have Alice in Wonderland so both sides of these make an unusual embellishment. The papers are K&Co Hopscotch and I've used my MS Cherish punch.

Other challenges:
Cards for Men For Someone special
Papertake Fancy a punch
Crafts and Me Punches
Crafts 4 Eternity Colour challenge
Stamp, scrap and doodle Saturdays Old supplies
The Crafty Pad Holes

I made top 3 this week at A gem of a Challenge and Little Claire, whoopee.

What a great man's card Marianne, love it.

In answer to your question on my blog about my bit box (I have 4 !!!) It grows everytime I go and see my friend Rachael as I raid her bit box (much nicer than mine) and come back with even more bits!! I always go in there first for anything for cards/scrapbooks and usually find something I can use!
