Crafters companion challenge.

As it was Valentin,and a lot of challenges refer to it,  I have decided to make a card for Dave that can also be used in a challenge. Have looked "around" and get inspiration from Anne (Crafters Companion) and from another card I saw on a blog (but can't rememnber where....)

So I have decided to give it a go and try, on my own, for the first time an easel card. But I don't have, yet, any fancy tool. Therefore I have used the "glitter girls" board with hart. It took me a bit of time to understand how to make an easel card, but now that I have done, I am very proud of myself.  I have used a few of freebie's stamps, different texture papers nd of course different sizes of harts....

Here is my "baby"....

I also put my card in :
Little Claire's Design, which theme is "Anything goes"
Gingerloft Challenge which theme is "The color Red"
2 sisters challenge which theme is "Hart"
All sorts challenge
Fun with shapes and more

This week challenges

Once more this week, I have decided to enter a few challenges and as my daughter is at home and sick, I have been able to "work" a bit more than usual.

I have done the first one for Cute Card Thursday, which is Challenge 150, "Banish the blue". To be honest it's not as easy as we can think....It's a common colour and I've realised it's very difficult for me not to use any blue at all.  I have used a diggi stamp from Beccy's Place

But I have also entered it in :

Little Claire's Designs : Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays : Happy Valentine's Day
Sew Many Challenges : Anything goes
Stamp Something : Use a digi.

May be I get a chance this week.....

My Time to craft - challenge 126 Flourishes

Have made that card, just for the pleasure of using glitter, and a lovely stamp I had since ages and I had never used. And it's just the perfect card for my first time in "My Time to Craft" challenge. Had already done a few, but more for "fun" as I was on time to do it.
