No Designer Papers at The Cutie Pie Challenge

Good morning,

A scheduled post from me today as I will be at work when the challenge goes 'live'.  It's been a good weekend, very mild but a bit blustery.  As usual we've been busy.  Iona has been rehearsing as she's taking part in the BBC Children in Need Children's Choir on Friday and we had another fundraising quiz at cheerleading last night.  Apart from that it's been the usual housework, cooking and being taxi!

Ok, back to the challenge.  We have a fab new challenge over at the Cutie Pies, our theme is 'No designer paper' and remember your project must include a cute image as well.  We are sponsored by the fantastic 2 Cute Ink and they have provided us with some gorgeous digis to use.

I've used one of their fab images called 'Winter Cardinal' and I've gone with some embossing instead of my usual designer papers.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers then die cut it into a circle which I've then edged with Star Dust Stickles.  The embossing folder is an old one from Docrafts and the heart circle die is from Spellbinders.  A Docrafts Create Christmas sentiment and some tartan tibbon from Hobbycraft finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Shona xx
