PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #404: ANYTHING GOES


Hi Everybody!


This week at Penny's, we have two fantastic sponsors, with 2 fantastic prizes up for grabs!



and


I have used a gorgeous image from A Day For Daisies, called Mr. Right.  I have coloured the image with markers, and added in a morning sunrise for them.

This image really touched my heart!  My husband and I love watching tv series together.  We particularly love British crime series.  There's a scene in the British version of the Swedish series Wallander, where the main character (played by Kenneth Branagh) is having an argument with his father, who is battling dementia.  The argument ends with the father walking off to sit on his favourite bench with his wife, and he exclaims, 'at least I have found someone to sit with' - jabbing at the fact that his son lives a painfully lonely, single life.

Having 'Someone to sit with' as you grow old is such a beautiful thing to think about, and it became a phrase my husband and I often referred to as the most important goal to work towards in life.


My image and sentiment have been cut out using Poppy Crafts dies.  My papers for this card come from the Craft & You Design I Love Vintage pack.  I've added a strip of lace along the edge.  The heart swirl is a laser cut by The Dusty Attic, and the film strip of a laser cut by Celebr8 - a connection to the tv series.  I've sprayed both laser cuts with white Gesso.  I've added a few little pearls and two pearl hearts.




We'd love you to join us this week, especially with these two fantastic sponsors giving prizes!  You can pop to either of their stores by clicking on their logos above, or head to our challenge to get a little more inspiration for your crafty week.

Thanks so much for popping in for a look!

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #360: WINTER FUN


Good Morning Paper Shelter lovers!

Our challenge for the coming week is 
WINTER FUN


I have used Keep Warm on my card.  I've coloured the image with markers and drawn in a snowy background for them.  

My background paper is from the 13 @rts Until Dawn pack.  The woodgrain paper that I've stamped the sentiments onto is from the Craft & You Design White Christmas pack.  The sentiments themselves are Stampendous! clear stamps.  

I've used KaiserCraft wooden snowflakes and holly, and sprayed them with white Gesso.  I sprayed a dash of Gesso onto the greenery on the left too, because it was a bit too much green for what I was trying to achieve.  

My flowers are 49 and Market and Green Tara.  I've used a Joy! Crafts border die to the little trees at the bottom of the card, and I've added a white ribbon and a strip of cheesecloth.

If you'd like to share your Winter Fun creations with us this week, you could be in line to win a fantastic prize from The Paper Shelter!



You could win a $30 gift certificate if you've used a Paper Shelter product (black & white image, pre-coloured image or paper), or 3 digis of your choice if you've used another brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.

My paper is from the KaiserCraft Memory Lane pack.  The corner tool die cut is from Find It Media, and everything else is Jolee's
