First of many

I'm sure!

Hello blogworld

Well here I am with my first ever card made with an Emma Canning digi stamp!  I knew when I saw, and applied for, the DT call over at the Flat Friends challenge blog that I'd love to colour these stamps and I was right!

I'm not entirely sure that I've given enough definition to the top or shorts, but overall I'm quite pleased!  Am really looking forward now to the challenge blog going live and making more cards (or non-card projects!) with these digis.

So, thanks again Emma for picking me for your team - and hope you like my little creation!

Front shot of card:

Detail of image:

Arty farty side:  Oh and can you tell, I'm as bad with accessories as I am with blog backgrounds - I'm trying glass pebbles this time!
I used:

Digi stamp:
coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers

Go-Kreate tag
Memory Box - Riviera Corner (part of at least!)

First Edition - New Leaf

Anything else?
A very old Bo Bunny rub on
Trim and charm from my stuff (and are even older!!)
Viva Decor Pearl Pen
Kraft cardstock to matt with
3d gloss on her glasses - which I'm not if it shows in the picture or not

All fairly quite on the home front at the mo, although She Who Must be Obeyed is developing even more of an attitude at the moment and isn't sleeping so well just now.  She also cried that she didn't want to go to school today, I'm sure she will be fine tomorrow.

Also we might have got homes for two of the kittens - fingers crossed!  Then just two more to go - I've given in and we're keeping one!!!

See you soon,


A challenge, or two:

Fantastic card Sarah for your Dt post and I'm sure your really going to enjoy being a part of the team.
I'm sure with little one it's just being at school and it wears them out easily at the start. A couple of weeks and she'll be fine I'm sure of it!!

Fab card Sarah. I love the image. Good luck with finding homes for the kittens.
My Amelia has got an attitude problem at the moment too. I thought she would settle down now she is in year 3 and has a strict teacher. But no. Since being back at school she has had a tantrum over school food(I now have to give her packed lunch), set off a fire alarm and had a hysterical moment in class over a mini snickers bar. Oh the joys of having children!
