Visiting Hallmark

I was lucky enough to be one of the winners recently in a DOCrafts Creativity competition to create a Forever Friends card. Our prize was a visit to the Hallmark Studio in Yorkshire, and it was brilliant! We saw all round the Creative section, had a play with DoCrafts Forever Friends products, and came away with stacks of goodies. My favourite bit of the visit was the big notice in the foyer welcoming us! I made a very quick and simple layout for my scrapbook when I got back, using some of the stickers placed on white card and cut around to make die-cuts.

Funky Hand Challenge

This was made following a sketch on the new Funky Hand Challenge blog. In the end I didn't add a sentiment as I liked the card better without one, but I've followed the sketch apart from that. The pink, lime and orange papers are from my favourite CD of printable paper designs, Funky Seasons. I added some gem centres, coloured with Sharpie pens - a great way to get matching colours from a pack of clear gems!
