COME FLY WITH ME....


Look at me....two cards in one day! Not showing off, honest! I just had a massive MOJO injection and couldn't decide which one to share with you for this week's challenge at Rhedd and Rosies , which oddly enough is "TAKE FLIGHT"! We want to see all your wonderful creations that have a flying theme.

Card number one: the background is made up of scraps of paper I had left over from another card, digipapers from Tsunami Rose Designs , which I've edged with faux stitching, so it creates a kind of patchwork effect. The stamp is a digi , which I got AGES ago, and alas, can't remember where from :-/
All layered up on Kraft card, and I simply wrapped around a few pieces of string, and frayed the ends.

Card number two: A bit more technical! All you need are some coordinating papers, I used some Easter ones from NITWITS, and cut out three lots of three different sized scalloped circles. For instance, 3 x 3inch, 3 x 2inch, and 3 x 1inch. Fold each circle in half and stick together, leaving a flat back. (Hope that makes sense!). The baskets are just bits of corrogated card, and I've used string for the ropes. The sentiment is one I've printed on my PC. Simples!

Thanks for taking the time to look. And GOOD LUCK with the challenge. There's a fab prize on offer by DT member  Zoe , here's a picture to tempt you!
Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Hugs

Hiya! You used some scraps (aka Snippets) so please feel free to come and play in the Snippets Playground with us. We're friendly and it's a lot of fun! Backlinking for a couple of days is fine - we have very few 'rools' - which is probably why it's like a farm yard run by a bunch of naughty little girls much of the time :)

Hugs, Di xx
