But before I tell you about that I'm gonna make you all jealous by telling you about some good luck I've had lately! I was at a Ball recently, that I've been to every year for the past 3 years, and they give away prizes each year. My first year there I won a prize which was a night in a lovely hotel which I really enjoyed. Well, this year I won another prize! It was a night in another fancy hotel including dinner and a spa treatment! So I got it booked yesterday for myself and my best friend and I'm so looking forward to it as we've both been through tough times recently.
So last night I was at my little sister's school play and as we were going in I noticed people selling tickets for a raffle. I joked that I wouldn't buy any as "knowing my luck, I'd end up winning and I want to give someone else a chance!" So my sister said she'd buy some but realised that she'd forgotten her purse, so I gave her the money - and we only went and won! It was a box of chocolates this time but I couldn't help laughing!
Anyway, onto the new challenge at the Creative Card Crew which is sponsored this fortnight by the fabulous Stamp Fairy
who are offering $10 to spend in their store to the lucky winner!
And to win this fabulous prize this fortnight we want to see your
So come and wow us with your fancy cards or whatever you want to make!
Here's what I did...
I made a concertina card using a tutorial that I saw on Splitcoast Stampers. It was surprisingly easy to do!
The image is Tommy, Here Comes Santa by The Stamp Fairy. I added the text on my computer before I printed him out. I coloured him with my promarkers: Skin;Sunkissed pink, Oatmeal, Blush, Pastel pink. Suit;Forest green, Lime twist, Lime zest. Fur;Umber, Burnt sienna, Caramel. Bauble; Plum, Amethyst, Orchid. Hair; Cinnamon.
The papers are from the Snow Day collection by Crate Paper. After I had made my base card and covered it with the papers I gave the top edges a coating of snow-tex. I love the effect this stuff gives but boy is it fiddly to put on! lol!
I then got some elasticated thread and threaded across the centre part of the card with seed beads and some jingle bells.
And lastly I added some little snowflake confetti along the edges of the back of the card.
I hope you'll come and join us at the Creative Card Crew - I know you will when you see how creative the rest of the DT have been!
