Hi there,

Time for yet again another design team post.  Is it just me or do the weeks seem to be speeding up?!

I think the time I spent with Mum last week helped get my creativity flowing again and I am pleased with how my card turned out this week.

The image is from our sponsor of the week Scrapper's Delights  and is called Winter Elf.
She is coloured using Micador Colourush pencils and then Kindy Glitz for some sparkle.  The red card is from Stampin' up and the shimmery purple card and blue ribbon was from a discount store (love them for craft supplies!) I cut out the purple card by hand and wrote on the ribbon with a fine line permanent marker.  The scrap book paper was a freebee with a magazine. I thought I would turn it into a Valentines card, but I guess it could really be used for anything.

I have even entered my first challenges!

Now for my POTW.  I love this one, it is a bit edgy and I really want to have a go at the embossing paste technique.  The image also makes me think of Dr Who! Awesome work Pia.  Check her out at Pias Papir og Perler .

Above is a photo I took from our hotel in Adelaide last week.  A beautiful time of night looking over the city.  I was so happy with the way it turned out, I just wanted to share it with you.

Have a great week

Rachael :-)

This colorful card looks beautiful, Rachael! I love the color combination you've used, her hair looks fantastic and the DP makes such a great background!
Thanks for picking my card as your POTW. I had a really fun time playing with the stencil and embossing paste. It was really easy and far less messy than I had feared:)
