Crafty Play Day Makes

Hi Peeps

Well for our play day this week we set each other a challenge lol ....
Linda was to do a grungy card and I had to do a cutie one. Then we both had to do each others using the same stuff (I went pinks she went purples)
I gave Linda some Tim Holtz goodies -  stamps, die cut, distress powders and inks, kraft card, a tag, bit of string and a clip ! (she brought her own frantage)

She gave me a tatty twinkles stamp set and some pretty papers, and here's what we came up with 

My tatty twinkles 


My grungy card 
Linda's grungy card 

Linda had both hers done before Id even finished my Cute one .... Speedy Gonzalez or what ha ha
We had a giggle and she had very mucky paws hee hee ..... I'm happy with my cutie one, still not my cup of tea but hey each to their own .... I think we both did well ha ha

Thanks for looking

Left of Centre GDT

Hi Peeps

The lovely Mo over on the Left of Centre Challenge Blog invited me to do a guest DT post for this weeks challenge which is themed "Black and White - with one other colour" 
As you can see I've chosen pink ha ha 

Now I'm not a "dark" craft type but as you all know I enjoy grunge and distressing so my card reflects that and with the help of a Stampotique stamp I think I've pulled it off ! hee hee

Please pop over and check out the fabby makes from the girls and of course join in the challenge
