At Last

Well finally it is time to start Jenni's new Challenge Blog which is called
 Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge! We have been playing with her beautiful images for a while now, getting a chance to colour them and see how they work and now it is time to share the results with everyone else and give you a chance to play too! The first card I have made is going to be for my husband Steve so I wanted the card to have a bit of a masculine feel. I like the sentiment and how it looks on the card but as we have actually been married for 30 years it is probably a bit redundant! The papers I used are from a pack called V&A for Docrafts, a Basic Grey from a mixed set and the one behind the sentiment is a stamp which I stamped on cream paper and partially coloured to match the roses. The brad is also from the V&A collection. If you haven't seen Jenni's new challenge yet hop over here for a look, we would love it if you could play along.
My card also fits these challenges
Simon says stamp -love is in the air
Crafty creations -inspired by Red Red Rose (by Burns)
Creative Craft World -love
Papertake Weekly -anything goes/flowers
KB Cute Monday -use hearts
Lexi's Creations -valentines
AiFactory Challenge -pink and red
Crafty Purple Frog Challenge -valentine's day/romance
Here is another of the cards I made using one of Jenni's new images.
So the first challenge is 'Romance' and I'm sure you'll agree the images Jenni has created fit the bill. But of course you don't have to use one of her images to enter the challenge it just needs to be a digital image. If you do use one of hers your card will be entered twice. So have fun making your card and good luck!
