Birthday Wishes

Whooo-whooo! I entered my Easter Card on Just Some Lines's Blog challenge and I won this sweet stamp! I am sooo chuffed with my prezzie :-)
So for the new challenge on Just Some Lines, I chose to use my new Digi Stamp I won ;-)
This is what I came up with :
  • I used my Spectrum Noir pens to colour the Digi Stamp.
  • Used left-over patterned paper and cardstock for the card base.
  • Added a brand new whiteboard chippie- Nature Element : Rustling Leaves and paper flowers(discontinued, but still in my stash!) from Enmarc Crafts - www.enmarc.co.za
  • and 3 old buttons from my stash.
and a little something on the inside :-)

  • I cut the word 'ADORABLE' from an old embossed piece of cardstock.
TYFL :-)

Princess M's First Lucky Packet

This LO got published in the latest Scrap Affairs and I am so proud of it!

For the left page of this LO, I participated in a Let’s Scrap Challenge – http://letsscrap.ning.com/ - where we had to do some Scraplifting. I saw a LO by Gabrielle Pollacco which she uploaded long time ago and I loved the LO so much that I simply COPIED it. My main aim was to replace as many elements possible with Enmarc chippies - www.enmarc.co.za  and then also used my stash of which some are dating back as far as BC!
