DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 62 : Use Embellishments


Hi everyone, today is a very special day for us in Australia. It's our national day. Australia Day...
This is the time to be very proud, to be an Australian....I know I am...my parents migrated out here in the 50' from Europe with the hope of new beginnings, and I was the lucky one to be born here....
Happy Australia Day to all Aussies........

Today is the start of a new challenge over at the the Squirrel and the Fox
which is an Australian based challenge blog......
We are asking to 
use Embellishments
The image is from our very own V's Sweet Ideas...........check out her blog
 I used papers from my stash, I always use pro markers for my colouring and I made the folded flowers out of 3 strips of paper folded, and I finally worked out if you use a hot glue gun, you can keep the folded flower together, any other glue I have tried has been unsuccessful, and they tend to open up when you least expect them to...ha.It is like holding down a toddler that doesn't want it;s nappy changed... I also added two of my own hand made bejewelled pins....
Looking forward to checking out your creations...

Blessings Hilde

I am also going to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter # 142: Digi and Sentiment
 Sister Act # 41: Anything goes
Word Art Wednesday # 11: Anything goes

DT Card for Brown Sugar # 76 : Use Chalk

Hi all, welcome to the next challenge at Brown Sugar, we are asking you to 
use Chalk...
OMG, where did I put the chalkies?????..I knew I still had them,  but where did I put them??? Well I found a lot of other things along the way, and was thinking about what to do next, when I saw them, under all my other stamp pads, duh...So I am a little rusty doing this, I can't even remember when I last used them, but as always, we must have whatever is going at the time....And I will be very honest, not sure I will use them again, just sayin.....(I ended up with chalk everywhere!!!)
