Cake and running

So, a fiftieth party of fizz and cake, for two friends who like running!  I found these two perfect digis on Polkadoodles’ Etsy store and used backing card from Hunkydory.  I cut some of the backing cards to use the bunting and cupcakes as embellishments.  And di dthe inside too.  (Apologies for the ascribbling, I should have photographed before writing),  I then made a gift tag using the same Hunkydory kit.

Creative Moments has  lots more fun cards at there Just fro Fun challenge this week!

Creative Moments challenge – Swirls and pearls

A friend loves at all times

Proverbs 17:17

This fortnight’s challenge is Creative Moments is sponsored by QKR.  They produce the most wonderful sentiments for cards as well as digi stamps.  I have teamed the sentiment with a fabulous free image from Jade Dragonne.  The chosen backing papers match the tea and cake theme perfectly and I cut some elements form the papers to embellish the image.  The swirl I used is fromSpellbinders and is called corner flourish two.

Fairy in subtle hues

The merciful man does good for his own soul, but he who is cruel troubles his own flesh.

Proverbs 11:17

For this card I have combined two digis from A Day For Daisies.  I have used one new Spellbinders on the corner and an old one at the base of the card.  There is a little frosted brad to left which is from Papermania’s Hampstead range.

Hello, here is a quick reminder of the Creative Moments Challenge which started yesterday.  This is a lovely image is from Stitchy Bears and is ideal for friends suffering with alopecia or illness.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and made it into a card using papers called Parisian Dreams, which came free with a magazine earlier in the year.
