Glamour Puss!

For my card today I have combined two challenges. The first is A Spoon Full of Sugar where we are asking you to use buttons on your card. Our wonderful sponsor this week is Lori from Scrappopotamus. Lori has kindly donated the below prize. Thank you Lori!


Our talented Guest Designer this week is Deb. Be sure to pop to see her gorgeous card.

Now over at our Scrapmagasinet DT blog my wonderful DT buddy Heather has the below great sketch for you to use.

As with all our challenges at Scrapmagasinet one lucky player will have the chance to win $250 NOK stamps from the Scrapmagasinet Online Store.


The image used on my card today is from the fun set 227 Gamlinger. I knew as soon as I see this set that this would be the first image I would use... yep.. because of the cat ;-) I created the sentiment in MS word using font Curlz MT. I love the felt flowers and the texture reminded me of her fleecy dressing gown. The papers are from BG Marrakech. Image coloured with Primsacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps for blending.

As mentioned last week after posting daily i'm now slowing my posts down again so will be back in a couple of days.

Hugs,
