Hello Friend


A couple of weeks ago Annie set me a challenge to create a bendy card...so I did!!

It was also the perfect opportunity to make something to support a couple of special challenges that are open at the moment.


It was really easy to do (just google bendicards...there are loads!!) so thanks for the shove Annie!! 

This is what it looks like from above.


We all know that as crafters we have to get all the latest stamps, papers and  dies (need I go on!!?) but what I didn't realize was that my Never Before Used Schtuff mountain also included digi stamps and magazine freebies too (shock horror!!) so I had a delve into the digi folder archive and used Surprise from Di's Digis and coloured the sweet little girls with pencils and blender. Purple is not my "go to" colour so that in itself was a challenge. Nevertheless I was really pleased with the result!! The sentiment was a magazine freebie and the centre of the flowers were pearled to echo the pretty flowers.

So, I am off to play at

Digi Choosday #36 - Shaped cards
Chocolate, coffee and cards #99 - Fancy and feminine
Di's digi designs - Use a sentiment

Thank you for stopping by and have a good weekend xx

  8. It's lovely Sarah. Really beautiful image, and a GORGEOUS shade of purple. I have not tried one of these curved cards yet. How do you get them in an envelope, or do you need a box? It's great to see you join in at Squirrel's challenge too. You can't go wrong with purple!
    Have a great weekend
