Keeping It Nice & Easy...



The Paper Shelter challenge this week is the old favourite of "Anything Goes" so no excuses not to join in ;)  I've made a wedding card for a change using TPS cute image called "The Happy Couple" as you can see I used the coloured image (short of time again & it is so handy getting the images in colour or the b&w outline).  The papers are from Dovecraft & they have been in my stash for ages.  I used my new Martha Stewart border punch & finished off with a rub-on greeting, flowers, pearls, ribbon & charm (ooh & a smattering bit of Glamour Dust).  I decorated the inside with the reverse of the papers used on the front.  I hope you will join us & check the other DT members fab creations for lots of inspiration.


As always we have a lovely prize for you. If you use a TPS image you have the chance of winning a wooping $20 gift certificate, and if you chose not to use a TPS image and still want to play, you have the chance to win a digi of your own choice. How great isn't that?


The challenges:
Kaboodle Doodles - Lots of Layers
Card Makin Mamas - Punches
Pollycraft - Swirls & Pearls
PaperPlay - Punches & Dies
Digital Tuesday - People Images
Cardmadfairy - Lots of layers (+ digi)
Shopping Our Stash - No Colouring Allowed


I hope you're all having a good week & managing to fit some crafting in.   I had 2 days without food, only clear fluids as I had a little hospital procedure yesterday - I couldn't wait for cup of tea & a teacake when I got home.  Hopefully I can get back to normal today (my friends say I'm a grazer: I like to eat little & often lol) & as it's my day off  I'm hoping to get back on track with my crafting :D
