Crafty Catz #92 - NO Pink or Blue

Good morning hope you are all well and the sun is shinning here in Manchester. Well today is Friday so that means another challenge at Crafty Catz and this week it is my turn to set the challenge. I do hope you will come and join us.

Ok the theme is a colour one with a difference. It is to not use these colours Pink & Blue.

So you can make lots of cards with anything else. Would be great for tradional christmas cards.

Our sponsor this week is Stamping Boutique who kindly gave the team some images to work with. They are giving the winner of this challenge 3 images of their choice how great is that.

I picked this fab image with these lovely flowers and used yellows i thought it would make a lovely card to send to someone to let them know that I was thinking of them. So this is winging it's way to a friend who is going through a difficult time. Hope she likes. Coloured with promarkers and used papermania capsule papers & ribbon. Used a few gems but kept fairly simple.

Well hope you like the card and dont forget to hop on over and checkout the rest of the teams work and please come and join us if you can we love popping by to see what you have made.
Thanks for popping by and see you soon.
I am entering this into stamping Boutque's monthly contest.

Glue or Tape

Good afternoon folks have a question for you. Do you use glue or tape to stick your card & DP together. I use double sided tape did get from papermil there own and was great price but sadly closed now and rapidly running out. I cant believe how much i use. Have used anita's glue but tend to ruin the paper.
So any tips or idea's are welcome.
