Crafty Catz Challenge blog - Anything Goes with the optional twist of So Cute

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you have had a good week. When this post goes live we will be on our way back from Glasgow. We have had a few days away to celebrate my birthday well you only turn 60 once. No longer being tied to school holidays is just brilliant. I will be back later and I will be able to catch up with everyone.

Being Friday the new challenge starts on the Crafty Catz Challenge blog. The theme is Anything Goes and the optional twist is So Cute the sponsor this time is Di's Digi Stamps. The Design Team used their own images for this challenge. The prize is $12 voucher to use in the store. We also have a Guest Design Team call for June. If you are interested just put GDT after your name when you enter the challenge. We are a very friendly bunch 🙂

I decide to make a simple card with an aperture for the image. I use a leaf embossing folder for the background. Just to warn you I have lots of scraps of this blue card left over from the wedding invitations I made recently so they will be featuring in lots of my makes. 

There are many wonderful images in the store if you click on the logo you will be taken there. 

I decided to use one of Di's images that I already owned. This image is called Hedgehogs Bluebell Fun and it is available HERE.  I printed the image onto Neenah card and coloured it with my Promarkers. The frame I made with my matting basics rectangular dies from Spellbinders. 

Aren't these hedgehogs just so cute. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
