Signed, Sealed & Delivered

This ATC (Artist Trading Card) is for the latest Salt Challenge.'This fortnight at SALT, I (Casey) want you all to think about and maybe create a piece of art that conveys a message of being His princess! When I first heard that term (HIS PRINCESS) I thought it sounded a bit over the top...but then after reading the Bible and listening to other messages, I realised that we are daughters of THE King. So, daughters of a King are referred to as princesses. So, how does it feel for you to be His Princess? We'd love for you to share your "HIS PRINCESS" creations with us.' I took on the theme of Royalty and worked with the ideal of royal seals, hence the signed sealed and deliverd from sin motto! And as you can see I used a real wax seal and stamped the letter 'E' into it. I had an idea in my head what I wanted to do, and it turned out better than I expected.

Over Do-dooling it!

Cor made a mamouth 11 cards yesterday! Some which I have shown you already, and some were duplicated designs, and there was this one also. I kept making mistakes with this one, like putting too much doodling then trying out different doodles thatdidnt work, so I stuck with the same doodle design- why the doodling? Well I was trying to complete the challenge for the Arty Girlz Challenge Blog. In fact this card is winging it's way to my dear friend called 'Arty'!

Striving for Simplicity

Hmm simple does not come easy for me! But sometime the papers say it all and there is no need to add too much. So here are today's efforts of trying to be simple, the first being an Easter card for the DCM mid-week challenge. Used some new papers, by...Dovecraft me thinks? and some new primas too!

All Grown Up!

Well back form my lovely break away and getting stuck back into my blog, this is a card for a double challenge, Magnolia's Hidden secrets, to incorporate a secret compartment on your creation, and DCM's teenager theme. My friend who I used to baby sit for is well I have lost track how old she is now! But sure she is in her teens (scary!). I havent used this odd colour combination before... was inspired by the handbag and shoe paper!
