My little piece of Paradise

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I'm new to blogging, only started at the beginning of January 2014. In that time I have had a lot of fun participating in various challenges and have been inspired by so many of you. I'm new to card making but enjoy it so much. I've been a scrapbooker for many years and card making seemed like the next logical step:)
I hope you enjoy your visit and feel free to leave me a comment or follow my blog. HUGZ :)

Crafty Catz GDT Week 3

I can't believe I made it back this week but I did..yayyyy
This has been a tough week for me being sick, this darn cold better leave my house quick!

Today I have a card for you that I made for my 3rd week as GDT for Crafty Catz. What a great bunch of ladies over there, they have been so nice to me, thanks ladies :)

The challenge this week is "use green, cream plus one other colour".
They have a wonderful sponsor this week offer a great prize,

So make sure you enter for your chance to win :)

This week I decided not to colour!
This is the first time I have attempted a card without colouring a digi and I must say it felt very strange.  I didn't know how I was going to approach it but I knew that I wanted to do a masculine card since it was my son's 17th birthday on Wednesday.  
I thought of the things he liked to do and came up with fishing...we live in Northern Ontario so it's an outdoor paradise all year around :)
I decided to do the whole project in card stock not using designer paper.  I cut all my die cuts with my silhouette and heat embossed the "gone fishing" text, scraped and ruffed up the edges of my paper, added some corrugated and voila!

Hope you like
