Extra, Extra, Read all about it!

Our new designers on SALT are finally on board! Welcome to you all! Great news also, we are going to be posting EVERY THURSDAY!

Here is the blurb for the extra challenge for today!
Today we have an extra special treat as our challenge is being sponsored by
A Faith Perspective. I got to know Anne at AFP after she sweetly choose my blog as a featured blog of the week a few months ago. Since that time Anne has frequented the SALT blog and highlighted the work of most of the members from our original team on AFP. Anne's commitment to sharing her faith and promoting other faith-based designers, blogs, and galleries through AFP and Scrapbook News & Reviews, an online, subscription-based publication, has been a real blessing to me and the SALT team. With those thoughts in mind, the SALT team wanted to throw out a friendship challenge for this weekend! The scripture verse that came to mind when I was thinking about this challenge was Proverbs 18:24, "A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." My study Bible has these comments on this passage, "...the contrast seems to be between two kids of companions; those whose friendship is superficial and who cause trouble, and the rare friend who is as loyal as a brother."
As soon as I heard the topic, I had an idea in mind, that just kept on developing. Iused my recently aquired BG stickers, exisiting stamp bit of bling, and creasted this window card with ATC's
Even if you are not inclined to take part please have a look at the great work that everyone has put in, we would love to have your support. Please feel free to join in too!

Busy Birthday's

Tis the Birthday season! My sister in law, my son, and a fiend all within the space of a week... Went for a vintage look as I know my sister in law likes things like pride and prejudice and vintage looking things.

I made this card for my son, along with he cake I made and which I am rather proud of. Then used the left overs to make some miniature marzipan fruit, which I gave to my sons nursery teacher who leant me some red food colouring!
A sunny yellow card for a happy 10 year old girl.
