Stampin' for the Weekend


Ooops! I've not posted for two weeks!  Not sure what happened there - I just seem to have had no time.  I've only made 12 Christmas card all year - this is not good news - something tells me I've got a busy few weeks coming up!

Stampin' for the Weekend

Anyway - it's time for a new challenge at Stampin' For the Weekend and our new theme is texture. So we want to see your beautiful makes with lovely lace, cheesecloth, tulle, fabric, embossing, flowers etc!

We also have a fab sponsor for this challenge:

So here's my card - I made it for my lovely friend Gemma as it was her birthday yesterday:

So for my texture I've added some lovely thick lace and a nice red flower, plus I've done a bit of distressing.  This Gorjuss stamp is lovely and just made for paper piecing (plus it saves loads of time colouring!)  I think I'm going to ask Father Christmas for a distressing tool, rather than using a pair of scissors like I did here.

Really hope you can join us in this challenge - can't wait to see what you create.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Make It Monday - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Birthdays
Cute Card Thursday - Girls Only
My Grafico - Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet - Textiles
The Squirrel and the Fox - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking - hope you enjoy your weekend!

A gorjuss card Julie. I love the image and you're right she's just perfect for paper piecing. Love the lace and your big red rose too.
