Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Another Crafty Boots Challenge!

Well it's that time again when Crafty Boots launches its next challenge. This time the theme is Valentines! So I want to see all of your lovey dovey cards and projects.

Now I wanted to try to do something a little different so my first card is a Humphrey's Corner stamp that I coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs.

While the papers and embellishments are from the Strawberry Kisses CD Rom. I went with blue as the dominating colour as I thought this could be given to anyone, male or female.

And then I got a bit carried away and came up with another card



This time the stamp is from the Strawberry Kisses range, coloured as above, the paper was in my stash and the rose is made using Spellbinders dies with Core-dinations card.  Think this one is a bit more traditional.

I think both cards could be used for Valentines, but I also think they would work equally well too for Anniversary cards.

I look forward to seeing your entries for our challenge, and thank you all for your kind words and participation.

Take care Zo x

You blummin' show off doing two! But it does show how a good challenge sparks creativity! I love how these are completely different and yet equally romantic! My fave is the first one - those elephants are beyond cute!

2 Gorgeous card Zoe, I like the images on both the colours on the first one, and the fab rose on the second.

Oh Zo, these cards are lovely. I guess if I had to choose one, it would have to be Humphrey's Corner, that image is so endearing. However, that rose is amazing, why do mine never look that good?
