Well, I wanted to make a thank you card for Karen (for my new, funky blog banner) and I also wanted to have a go at the 'Sketch This Cards' sketch, so i'm afraid the two birds have been stoned again!(I do feel sorry for them)

This is my first time using one of Di Hickman's sketches, and i'm quite pleased with the result. At first I thought it was way too busy but it's really starting to grow on me now. I had to miss out the sentement (shown on the sketch) because I didn't think it would go well on this card (I hope that's OK Di).

The little extra challenge from DCM was a little more challenging this week here's what we had to do.....This time the challenge is to pick one letter and see how many things you can use on your card that begin with that letter.
Now then, you can't choose "P" and just have pink paper, pink brads, pink ink, pink ribbon - oh no no no, that's not the way it works!
You could however, use
A pink card blank, paper, petals, plasma, a monogram P, something Purple, a Flower Pot...
Or how about B?
brads, buttons, birthday, banana (well, you never know..) blue, black, brown, blooms, buckles, bows
Or Sspots, stripes, string, sandals, Stickles, sunshine, stars, snowGot the idea? We're hoping this one will be great fun as well as maybe making you think really hard, the Design Team have come up with some cards as a starting point - see if you can work out which letter they've all chosen before you seek enlightenment on their blogs!
I decided on the letter T. I've used: a tree, a topper, a tag, some black tape and some torn, textured paper.
So here it is!!!!!!!! I love my new blog banner so, so much. What I love most about it is actually the sentement that is attached to it. It's not every day that someone comes along and offers to do something so kind and thoughtful and to be honest I'm still a bit stunned. Thank you so much Karen, to me this is everything.

I never realised just how difficult it would be to think of a theme but in the end I decided on 'Seaside' and i'm offering a smallish RAK for the design team's favourite. So if you fancy joining in with the fun pop over to CU.

So today I pinched it back while she wasn't looking so that I could take some pics (i'm sure she won't mind!). I was really proud of myself when I made this because I designed it, silk painted it, embroidered it then put it together without a single instruction! yes, I know, i'm blowing my own trumpet but if you can't blow your own trumpet now and again why have a trumpet? lol

The wonderful and talented Samm has nominated me for the ''Nice Matters Award'. So now I have to pick five other people who haven't been tagged. This may take some time because I seem to have tagged everyone to death just recently so I need to choose carefully and update it when I can.
