World Card Making Day 2011

It's World Card Making Day today and although I won't actually be making any cards (Birthday parties to attend!) I will be doing some colouring this afternoon!

And to make it even more special, over at Jellypark there is a little temptation for you! Claire has drawn a wonderful crafting basket image which is free for you to snag and if you do create something with it, go back to Jellypark and link up your card as you could win a fantastic £10 voucher to spend at Jellypark! But you have to be quick - its only available for this weekend!

I've used the wonderful image to create quite a titchy card! The card blank I got from a recent trip to our local Scrap Store and its perfect for such little cards! I've used the free Jellypark image and coloured it with Promarkers and used a scrap of paper from Pretty Sweet cd from Polkadoodles.

The embroidery thread is also from the same trip to the Scrap Store. I've pretended to make some tiny brads by using a black fine tip pen and then adding glossy accents over the top - easy peasy!

Hope you can join in with us at Jellypark!
