Giving thanks at Creative Craft

Hi all,

I went to my training today and as I missed last week through illness I found it really hard. It's amazing how missing one session just messes everything up. Martha was home today while Daisy was at kindy. Martha is desperately trying to crawl, but I'm not sure whether it's a good idea or not. At least I know where she is at the moment.

Well, it's time for another Creative Craft challenge. This week we are sponsored by Stitchy bear and for another prize we are offering a 1 month GDT spot. We also have more prizes available, but check the challenge blog to find out more! The theme is Thank you and as we have so much to be thankful for (and therefore to make a card for), I hope you can find the time to join in. I have made two very different 'Thank you for being you' cards. The first one uses an image by Stitchy bear. I love it as it reminds me of my youth. I wasn't a punk, but I did dress alternatively and found myself being judged solely on this many times so a thank you for being you would have been appreciated. The papers are by dovecraft and I used some safety pins as embellishments as I thought they completed the look.

The second card uses an image by Di's digi downloads and I thought it needed a sweet and girly type of card. The paper is by prima and the flowers are by Wild Orchid.
