Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #23

Time for another Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe once more. This week we would like you to
1.use Michele's fab sketch
2. use ribbon
3.add a ticket.

I made my card for a work colleague who turns 60 today, though I don't think she really wanted reminding of that! I chose a Sugar Nellie Leanne Ellis image to fit the bill. I am also entering this at Simon Says Stamp this week, where I think this fits the girly aspect of the challenge.


I went for a vintage look on this & hacked away with my distressing tool. I had a raffle ticket stant that wasn't appropriate so & cut it out & used the reverse with a more suitable sentiment. Distressing hides the amateurish nature of my effort!


I've coloured her with my distress inks, including some of the new colours, added some glitter & glazed the bubbles. The papers are MME, Wild Asparagus.

With each passing week, the C4E family is growing. This week sees the wonderfully talented Adrina, Faye & Michele join the team. We also welcome Crafty Chris on board as March's Guest Designer. Her blog is full of fabulous creations. I hope you will join us again this week & check out the terific work of my lovely DT teamies! This weeks winner will be invited to be our Guest Designer for April. Are you up for it?

Well I hope everyone is having a great weekend. We're just having a quiet one, but it still seems to be passing far too quickly!! Doesn't it always, LOL!

Thanks for looking,
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
