CHNC Christmas Challenge 23rd July

 Our Anything Goes challenge this week has the option to use Twine and/or Ribbon.

I decided to try something different. I folded some striped paper to look like a parcel and then tied it with twice.  Added glitter to the stripes, a tag to the parcel and mounted onto a coordinating patterned paper.

Although there is nothing in this parcel, it would be a fun way of sending a money gift.

The Crafters Cafe Challenge #287 - 15th July 2022

 This month our sponsor is Beccy's Place.  Beccy also has a BLOG , where you can find a freebie page.  Our theme for the month is " Spring or Autumn"  This time of the year those of us in winter are thinking of the Spring to come.  In the northern hemisphere, thoughts turn to cooler days and Autumn.

I went a bit different for this theme and chose Beccy's, Big Wishes, this is just one of the images in the set, there are also five sentiments, one of which is on the cards.

Same slimline cards, one in Autumn oranges, browns and gold.  The other coloured in Spring colours.

Coloured with copic pens, liquid pearls and various glitters.  Our Son and Daughter in Law celebrate their birthdays six days apart, so guess where these cards are being sent?

I enjoyed trying out the different colour schemes, might try it again, one day.
