Hello, and welcome!
It's been a dark and dreary November day in the good ol' UK........and I've stayed quiet and cosy in my little crafty haven......happy sigh.....another happy sigh.........and I'm finally caught up on next week's DT creations......woohoo!
Card Crafter's Circle is having a lovely challenge theme this week......
Your creation should follow our theme above, Remembrance, and can be military minded, or in remembrance of someone close to you. The red poppy is a world recognized symbol of remembrance for those in military service, so you could also create a card using red poppy flowers.
We don't have a digi sponsor this week, but Pailine, our lovely Boss Lady, is happy to offer a prize for you, which she will send anywhere in the world. It will be a lovely selection of ribbons, all 1 metre lengths, as shown here (each packet has 4 x 1 metre lengths ... a total of 24 metres of ribbon!)....
Isn't that a wonderful prize?
Because we don't have a digi sponsor this week, Pauline asked us to use any image that we thought would fir the theme. I had this beautiful digi stamp from Digi Sparkle and loved creating my card around it......
I have some of this lovely, ribbed red card and used some as the back layer for the card.......I then embossed some plain white card with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and placed it over the red background......a small "Remembrance" sticker is the simple sentiment......
Isn't this image just beautiful? I used my richest red Promarkers to colour it up, then used an X-Cut oval die to cut it out, along with a small red border........two pretty butterflies came to flutterby....ha!
A very simple card in remembrance of all who gave their all in the cause of freedom.
Please play along with us, this week.......I'd love to see your creations........and our Design Team has some truly beautiful inspiration for you, if you need a little nudge....hahaa!
