Something Old, Something New .....


When I spotted the latest challenge on the Forever Friends blog, I just knew that I had to have a go!  The challenge is called 'Are You Brave Enough?' and they want to see a card from your early card making days plus a card from now!

So first of all, here's my current day card (above) made with a Wild Rose Studio stamp ("Girl with Dog") and papers from Paper Mania layered with kraft.  I've also added a paper flower and a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

And now (are you sitting down?!) a card from November 2006 made with a Visible Image stamp:


This was made in my 'pre-Promarker' days when I struggled to colour in stamped images (badly!) with watercolour pencils.  I still do a lot of clean and simple cards but I like to think my colouring has improved during the last six years!!

I'd like to enter my first card in the following challenges:

Joanna Sheen Challenge - 'animal crackers'
One Stop Craft Challenge - 'just good friends'
The Poodles Parlour - 'anything goes'
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - 'anything goes'
Forever Friends - 'are you brave enough?'
OLLCB - 'recipe'

  4. Oh come on, Rudolf is quite sweet, but yes I can see a great improvement in your colouring and overall style. But the talent was there from the start, 2 lovely cards. The new card is gorgeous, such pretty colours
