hey there chickens! so there are only two weeks left before Christmas Day. is that ridiculous or what? WHERE did 2013 go?
well it's been a busy year for me, but i'm looking forward to an exciting 2014 with lots of fun things on the horizon! i know i mentioned that i will be staying on with Crafter's Companion as one of the members of their brand new Inspiration Team (!!!) and i can't wait for you all to see what we're up to! lots of fun things going on with new products, new releases, new faces, and LOADS to check out on the blog! you'll just have to trust me, because we still have a couple of weeks until it all happens!
in the meantime, if you're feeling up to a challenge, we're looking for Ribbon, Twine and/or Thread on your creations! use your Crafter's Companion products (see the list of eligible items HERE) and play along with our December challenge, and you could win £30/$30 to spend at the Crafter's Companion store, and lemme tell ya... it's EASY to spend! :)
here's the card i made using the new Sheena Douglass - A Little Bit Scenic "Seascapes"... these are GORGEOUS for masculine and elegant creations!
i incorporated ribbon and twine into my project, and backed my image with a simple kraft panel embossed with a Die'sire Embossalicious 6x6 folder (Chevrons), coloured my image with my Spectrum Noir markers (Blender, IB1, GG1, GG2, EB2, DG2, DG3, BG2, BG3, BG5, DR3, DR5, DR6, TB1, TB2, TB3), distressed the edges of my image panel, added a bit of minimal and subtle bling, and VOILA. i can totally see this for retirement cards, congratulations, destination weddings, and even sympathy. and believe me, it's easy and FUN to colour! :)
so. care to play along? there's still PLENTY of time left in the month to join us - just CLICK HERE to see what the awesome UK team did to inspire you and to link up!
