How was your Valentine's Day yesterday? My almost 7 year old asked me whether Daddy was my Valentine and I replied that this year it would be him for a change. He thought for a while then said he loved me but wasn't in love with me. I thought that was rather a profound statement for someone so young....
On with the Daring Cardmakers Challenge and this week Sylvia has chosen 'Alphabet Soup' as the theme so you need to use words or numbers as the focus for your card. The same child I spoke about earlier celebrates his birthday this weekend so this was the perfect challenge for me to make his card.
I chose vibrant colours and used a number 7 die to form the number in die cuts. This was one of those cards I chose the elements but wasn't sure whether it would come together and as a consequence it took me longer than envisaged to design, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
Hopefully the recipient will like his card. He's having a party so I have a lot to prepare and then a day out during the week as it's half term so it should be fun.
You can find lots more wonderful inspiration from my fellow team mates HERE and I hope you'll join in.
Enjoy your weekend!
