Wild Rose Studio Blog Hop - 10 October 2011

Over at the Wild Rose Studio they have a wonderful selection of goodies up for grabs in their Blog Hop/Challenge.  Who wouldn't want to win these?  I surely would as I'd put them to good use for my cards that I make solely to sell to raise funds for different charities.  What do you have to do to enter?  You have to make a card/project for the challenge entitled "Christmas" and then take part in the Blog Hop.
Well I decided to make not one but three cards - well it should have been four as there were four pre-coloured images on the sheet and I cut out four but where the fourth image is no-one knows!!  The images are from the Wild Rose Studio Christmas Collection CD.  I have inked the edges of the images with a chalk ink pad.  I have used my Sakura Stardust clear pen to add some sparkle to the images.  I then printed off one sheet of the matching backing paper as the backdrop to the images as it's gorgeous.  The cards have been finished off with a variety of lace, ribbon, card candy, tag sentiment, gems, brads and flowers made from the Artylicious Essence of Nature CD. 

Another three cards ready to take into town to the local Cancer Research UK shop so that these cards can be sold as part of the Docrafts Craft for Life Appeal.  If you haven't heard of this before it is whereby you obtain special plastic cello bags for an A6 card to go in, you make up the card and then take it into the shop for them to sell for £1.  It is such a worthwhile cause as unfortunately too many lives are affected by cancer and that if I can do a little bit to help I will.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Little Claire's Challenge - Christmas
I Did it Creations - Anything goes
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Daring Cardmakers - A little bird told us

hi Kym, this is gorgoeus. Its great to see a card that you have made from the candy you won on me blog. I love all three cards. They are so stunning and simple. Like how you used the candi dots on the top of the card. Everything goes so beautifully together. I am inspired by your cards.

Thank you for joining us on the Wild Rose Studio blog hop.
