These are a few of my favourite things...

Good morning all!  Can you hear me humming?  Yep, it's a bit of The Sound of Music stuck in my head after the lovely Lou picked this week's challenge theme at Pollycraft...

These are a few of my favourite things

We are sponsored this week by Crafty Emma's Store and the winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend in the store. How exciting!  Emma has some fabulous stuff there.

I tried to cram all my current favourite things onto my card this week which was no mean feat let me tell you as I used a small card base again (11cm x 11cm)!  Do pop over to the Pollycraft challenge blog and check out the fabulous projects from my teamies!

Here's what I came up with:
The image is Call Me Chester (Chester is one of my favourite Pollycraft characters).  The papers are from my favourite paper company... October Afternoon.  I have also used My Mind's Eye brads, felt stars, a flower button from Blooming Felt, a Crate Paper chipboard embellishment, a Maya Rd tag, Glossy Accents, copics, my sewing machine, a Pebbles rub-on sentiment, Tim Holtz Distress inks, The Ribbon Girl seam binding and twine, and swirly bling by Prima!

Here's a close-up of Chester:
And here are the copics I used:
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Craft Your Days Away: Distressing
Crazy 4 Challenges: Layer it on - lots of layers and embellies
Make it Colourful: Shading with Reds
One Stop Craft Challenge #121: Stitching Real of Faux

That's it from me for now, I'll be back tomorrow for Tiddly Tuesday!

Hi Arabella, another gorgeous card!

Love the little size of 'em, might just give that size a go - now that would be a challenge for me to leave off my normal size square cards!

Love the image and your papers and colouring - well just all of it really.
