Its another Thursday and the last challenge of the month for Delightful Challenges
- where did October go?
The challenge this week is
Stitching - real or faux
I decided to use this cute precoloured digi from Digital Delights called Stocking Noah (coloured) for this challenge just to "give it a go". Its not something I've used very often before - if ever when I think about it - but I think this idea is Absolutely Fabulous (darling!)
- now am I Patsy or Edina, I think there's a bit of both of them in me - I'm ashamed to say lol.
Anyway back to the plot - This image was just what I needed this week as I'm still battling away with technical problems with the computer and its been a bit of a busy one at home as well. It was such a quick easy card to make and the colours have printed just beautifully - Who'd know I hadn't coloured (or stitched!) this card myself. It could be just the way to go to make cards at the busy time coming up - no I'm not going to say the word - but you know what I mean! You can still design your own card but put a pre coloured image on - it saves so much time and its not as if its a problem matching papers, as all the Christmas (there I said it) papers are going to go with Christmas (there I said it again!) images.
If its the choice between not having time to make a card and using a precoloured image - its just a no brainer, and I know some crafters who - shock horror - BUY Christmas cards - the scandal of it lol.
