PCJ "anything but a card" challenge now on

Hi and welcome to my blog!

Paper Crafting Journey have a new challenge starting now and to participate you'll need to make "anything but a card". One of my all-time favourite digi stamp companies, The Paper Shelter are the sponsors for this challenge so you'll be wanting to win this prize!! 

I have created a little scene with a digi girl from The Paper Shelter, she comes complete with a picture of an ice-cream cart but as this needed to be something other than a card I decided to re-create her cart in my own way and Wow, was it difficult lol. The great thing about digi stamps is that you can print them out any size you like and as you can see I have made her huge! I never know how much information you want to know about how I created my cards or projects so I'll stop now but please let me know in the comments section if you'd like me to add more.

To buy the tree, fence, pearls, grass and/or green leaves please click on Flourish with a Bling, we sell internationally and have some fantastic value packs on offer.
