Good morning! Is anyone else feeling a bit of a chill in the air lately? We definitely are here in Greece, but I can't complain... it really has been quite a mild winter so far. Anyway, right about now I'm at the airport about to check in for my flight to Auckland where it will hopefully be warm and sunny! (it had better be because I tried to pack light and only summer clothes made it into my bag!... ah well, I suppose I could force myself to look around the shops : ) )
So, today we have a new challenge at Pollycraft set by the lovely Mary J and it is
'Warm it Up'
We would like to see warm colours, or warm feelings or anything that makes you feel warm on your creations. Our sponsor this week is The Crimson Cloud who are are offering three packets of die cuts to the winner. Woohoo!
Head on over the the Pollycraft Monday challenge blog to check out my teamies fabulous creations!
For my card today, I decided to use the ever so cute Swings and Slides Lil Kitty:
I tried to use just warm colours, but I see a little bit of blue/green just snuck in there! Lil Kitty is coloured with copics (see details below). The papers are from Simple Stories and Crate Paper and the felt rose is from Sew Sweet. The birdcage charm is from Da Wanda. The tag is from Maya Rd. The card is quite small (11cm x 11cm) so I had to keep it fairly simple.
Here's a close-up of Lil Kitty:
And here are the copics I used:
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
ATC's and Cards with Attitude #5: Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenges #24: Animals (there is a bird on my card as well as the Lil Kitty hat)
Crafty Purple Frog: Anything Goes
That's it from me for now. If you have wondered why I have been pretty quiet lately it's because I won't be taking any crafting gear with me on holiday, so I have been very busy trying to make all my DT cards for February before we leave... Busy busy!
We hope you can join us for the challenge!
