Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning folks and what's the weather going to do today....goodness knows...yesterday ended up in spitty spotty rain....and just when I decided to change all the beds in the house....bad planning on my part...and to be honest today doesn't look too promising either.
The good news is that while the sun is hiding I am cracking on with my list of jobs to do and managed to fit in another challenge card.
The challenge this week from the lovely Keryn over at Daring Cardmakers is.....

DIE CUT CRAZY




Hero Arts....Mi Casa
Woodgrain Pattern
Sizzlits Die: Leaves, Branches & Flowers
(and I'm sure you are all familiar with this phrase..but if not...it means
"my house is your house" in Spanish)

Yes I know what you're thinking not another card with the Mi Casa stamp set...well there is a very good reason...I am trying to kill two birds with one stone.. making some samples for the lovely Jacqui at Simply Create and getting some challenges done and dusted at the same time ...another use for the house stamp....just mask off the windows and door and you have a ready made birdhouse.
But it's ever onward as they say.....8 Peppa Pig cards to make today.....all the same but with different names and then a quick dash to B&Q to get some bathroom stuff.....it's 10% discount day for us elderly customers don't you know .....and hopefully manage to get my DT stuff done instead of being last minute Annie again....but first the big furry boy needs his morning constitutional.
Catch up with you all tomorrow

  14. Great card Kath. Like everyone else I love the woodgrain effect. Might be the same stamp set but all your cards are different.

    My little granddaughter is a great fan of Peppa Pig too!
