Shoes and Friends

My blog friend Ardyth, at a loss for something to do after organising anniversary cards for Darnell, and wedding photos from everybody, has come up with a challenge in honour of her first blogaversary.  Take the first card you ever posted on your blog, flickr, splitcoasters, wherever, and CASE it.

Here's the card from my first post:


For my CASE version I stamped the image without the sentiment, coloured the ruffle skirt red, keeping the colouring patchy to complement the scribbly image, then trimmed and mounted the piece onto black card, and added a different sentiment.

So, roll back to your first card, CASE it and link up on Ardyth's sidebar.

Fittingly, the theme at Less is More this week is FRIENDS.

The challenge at A Blog Named Hero is to use an old stamp to create a new project.



And the challenge at Dynamic Duos is to use red and black (with an optional valentine theme).
