Guest DT & 'Inspirational' feature :o)

Hi folks! It has been over a week since my last post... I'm so sorry but things have been hectic in the Dry household. I have a couple of things I would like to share with you. Firstly, the lovely Faye has invited me to be one of this months Guest DT on the Sweet Stampin Challenge.

This weeks challenge is 'Something for a child'. I set about making this card for a friend of the twins... yep, they have been invited to another party (I seem to be making lots of cards for 5 year old little boys and girls)

I coloured the lovely 'Toodles & Binks Explore' stamp with Copic markers. The gorgeous double sided papers are by Imaginesce. I simply cut a tall 'X' in the centre of the paper, curled the flaps back and secured them in place with brads. The sentiment is stamped from the T&B set, inked with Distress inks and spritzed with Cosmic shimmer mists. The letters and number are die cut from my 'dragonfly' Quickutz alphabet and I have used some household string to trim the card.

My other exciting news is that the lovely Ann has chosen my blog to be featured on Inspirational. I am so delighted and honoured that she chose me :o) Thank you Ann!
That's all for now folks!
