Just For Fun with The Paper Shelter

I decided after my blog decided to have a hissy fit yesterday that I really needed to just chill and relax, so I made a card just for fun. YAY! I decided to use this cute precoloured image from The Paper Shelter called "kisses" it comes in line version as well when you purchase it so you can colour it yourself. I wanted this card to be quick and easy so I went with precoloured.
The papers are digi papers from The Paper Shelter and can be found HERE. Theflowers are from Wild Orchid and Deb's Creations and the buttons are from a scrapping kit I got a while ago from Lime Tart. The swirly corners were cut on my cricut using "Home Accents" cartridge, one was cut at 2.5" and the bigger at 4".

I am entering this card in the following challenges........

Paper Pretties - No Markers
Divas By Design - Summer is Here

CSAYL - The Complete Package

This week the challenge is to make a gift set. I have used It's a Keeper teplate from Perfect presentation who are our sponsor over at Christmas Stamping All Year Long for this challenge. I will eventually bag up something yummy with a nice ribbon round the top and put it in the box. I have used some digital paper from a kit for the patterned paper and I cut the tags with my cricut using "preserves" cartridge. The ribbon is some organza SU ribbon that I have had kicking around in my drawer for a while now. The sentiment is from a set of Forever Friends stamps from Do Crafts

CSAYL - All About You

This week at Christmas Stamping All Year Long we want to see your favourite colour on your card. Our sponsor this week is Amber Ink and 1 lucky winner will get a $15 US store voucher.

So my fav colour is Red in case you hadn't guessed and i have used some of the very cool " 'tis the season to be pretty" set from amber ink teamed with papers from Making Memories, flowers from Wild Orchid and a sentiment from SU. I coloured the image with Connor's crayola colouring pencils. Can't wait to get some prismas or polychromos, I keep promosing myself it will be soon. With the NZ dollar as strong as it is against the US I should probably do it soon.

Hope you will come and join in our challenge!
