In the Frame



Over on Gingersnap Creations this week is the new Random Redhead Challenge theme which is 'Frame'.

I used one of the die cut frames from Crafty Individuals and a selection of their stamps to create this thankyou card. I made this a few weeks ago now and feel my style has slightly moved on a little since then. I took a different approach to creating something for the challenge then than I perhaps would do today using the same materials, even though its not that long ago, but its nice to show the change I think, regardless.

Please checkout the other items made by other members of the design team on Gingersnap Creations where you will also find out how to be in with a chance of winning some fabulous blog candy from this months sponsors Paper Temptress.

My card also fits in with this weeks Stamp Something challenge theme which is 'Thankyou'

If you were expecting more Christmas themed cards from me, they will be starting next post, I just needed to do a sidestep for this challenge theme. :0)

I know what you mean about making something & then using the same stuff only better. I often look back at things & think if only I had waited a bit longer!
This is a lovely piece, he is a great image.

Ooooo Jo, this is yummy! Love how you used the tree in the background collage; and also the blue drippy blobby bits on the frame. :)

It's brilliant Jo - and perfect for a male card - its so hard to think of something for a man. I resort to buying them (hangs her head in shame)
