Kept it simple! DT card

Hello, wow the weeks are flying by, nearly into February. This weeks challenge at Crafty Catz is "Flowers" I had to make about six sympathy cards, not for me to use at once may i add, they were for a work colleague, she is a cancer nurse specialist and thought if the need arises in her job role it would be nice to send a card to the family, Hopefully she will not have to use these within a short time frame. I kept them very simple and no wording so she could add what she wanted inside.

Our sponsors this week are Blackleaf studio

I will be adding this card too the following challenges

Marks finest papers....sympathy card
Crafty card
My time to craft......Emboss

Thanks for stopping by again, enjoy the weekend, hugs carol x

C.R.A.F.T. dt card's your week going, mine's just full of work work work, glad i get to craft on a weekend or my DT cards would never get done..LOL.

This latest card is for C.R.A.F.T challenge which is "gate fold tag card" for any body that is not sure how to do one the instructions will be on the c.r.a.f.t. site, This lovely image was supplied by our sponsors, which are Aifactory

and the papers are from paper mania,image coloured with pro markers. I thought this would make a good man's card, mainly because of the colours and the image is very versatile.
There is some fab DT creations if you fancy a browse on the challenge blog. hopefully you will join our challenge, then i can pop round to see your entry.
take care all and have some crafting fun this weekend.
I am also adding this card to a few other fab challenges around at he moment.
