One for Christmas and One for a Teenager


Forever Friends Challenge Blog

I found this new Challenge blog whilst blog hopping and noticed it was run by the fabulous and very clever Jo. There challenge is entitled "With Love" Ahhh!!!!. There are some great card by the talented DT members to give you a head start so click HERE to join in.



I am very late posting today had a bit of a struggle with Mum this morning, but still, better late then never. My first card is actually another commission, The lovely FF image has been coloured with Distress Inks and H20's. The spotty paper and the holly sprigs are from a FF Christmas paper pad, The ribbon is from Stash, I bought a 20mtr reel of both the White and Gold last year, so I still have loads left over. The holly sprig from stash and Poinsettias are from Poppicraft, swirls are a Sizzix Die.



LILI OF THE VALLEY CHALLENGE No 7

SOMETHING FOR A TEENAGER

Our theme this week on Lili of the Valley Challenge is Something for a Teenager, now I don't know about you but I find these harder to make than even Mens Cards. We are not restricting you to cards, how about a Diary, Notebook, Bookmark or even a Gift Voucher Folder. It up to you. We have another great Lili of the Valley Stamp on offer this week. Please come and join in the fun we do love seeing your creations. Stuck for ideas well click HERE and get some inspiration



I have used parts of 3 Jasmine Stamps on this card, they have all been coloured with Copic Markers then cut with circle Nesties and mounted on to the base card with foam pads. The DP is Little Yellow Bicyle. The sentiment has been computer generated, following instructions from the very clever Donna. Everything else from stash.

Gorgeous work Jacqui :)

Love FF card and youve done a fantastic job on the teenage card. I agree they can be hard as some are still into 'girly things" like bears and cute stuff then there are the ones who are "too old" for them sort of things.. Hee hEe

Hope all is well with your Mum :)
