My DH made the remark last week "You don't seem to make cards for yourself now - just for challenges". Yes said I, but they all get used and I enjoy making them.
But it made me think - I haven't had a 'play day' for ages, so Friday became Play Day!
I played with a few old stamps new card shapes and some different techniques and now I have lots of 'bits' just waiting to go together, but one I have finished is for my son's friends wife who has just had a baby girl. I have made it as a pocket card and he can write the sentiment on the tag.
I have used a PSX stamp which I love,coloured as usual with Promarkers and I have added stardust stickles after colouring the moon with Satin. The papers are from the Pink Petticoat freebies in last months Quick Cards mag. I chalked around the image but it looks very pale in the photo, better IRL.
I have found a few challenges for this card (well it would be a waste if I didn't)
