Just got back from a Drop In session at school where we got to see what my eldest son has been up to. It's a good idea to have these drop in sessions as not only do you get to see what the children have been doing in lessons, but it's really motivational for them to show you their achievements. Plus, as it's first thing parents can come in before they go to work.
On with this week's Challenge for the Daring Cardmakers which I have set. As the title suggests I would love to see a bird on your creation either as a focal point or embellishment, die cut or stamped. Lots of choices so I do hope you'll join in and there's some amazing inspiration from the Design Team HERE.
As you can see, I've gone a little tropical for my creation, obviously thinking of the warmth and sunshine that you associate with it!
I've used the new First Edition Tropical Die set and added coloured card through the die cut image of the toucan - paper piecing using dies. The addition of a tiny gemstone for the eye gives me my bling fix. I've die cut some leaves to create foliage for the toucan to sit on. A mini paper doily and die cut sentiment finish the card.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I will be doing a Trimcraft demo at the The Range in Thurrock on Sunday which I am looking forward.
See you again soon,
