What a fab way to start our challenge year off over at Penny's paper crafty challenges with an anything goes challenge, good job the DT is all refreshed and up for some serious blog hopping around all the fab entries I expect we will be getting and can't wait I have to say.
We have a fab sponsor this time yet again, not sure how Courtney does it getting all these fab prizes from such generous sponsors but this time we have whimsy as our sponsor. They have a great prize up for grabs and we all had the chance to play with some of their digi images and how diverse is the variety too.
My cards, 3 in total I tried to make very different in style so I don't bore you all. The first I decided to make for my just in box and it's a retirement card, though in the UK not sure that many would get the relevance of a moose and a beaver fishing as we don't tend to have many roaming our countryside and it would probably scare most fishermen to death if the saw one. The fishing element though I suspect is relevant to many a male retiree and a healthy way to relax too, along with a great excuse for tall stories in the pub after.
I coloured with promarkers and the border I coloured with sakura glaze pens to try and make them seem like glossy fish scales. I stuck with the green theme to symbolise the great outdoors.

My final card of the 3 I haven't yet decided what occassion it could be for as I made the sentiment up and then printed on the computer, well I will have by the time I post this. I thought 'sending you showers of love' went so well with the image and I suppose it could work as a birthday which was my original idea but I suppose it could work as a get well or a valentines or at a push an anniversary or just to say I love you, like for spouses day on 26th or national hug day on the 21st of this month.
I again coloured with Promarkers and the paper is from a Disney Winnie the pooh print studio again years old as it was my sons and have to admit I was so surprised it worked when I installed it on the computer which is probably 2 or 3 operating systems more advanced than it was intended for. The pearlised green card I thought lent itself well to the dry embossing I did of raindrops from a fiskars board and the 2 lilac ribbons with 2 bows one stuck on top of the other and the umbrella charm and purple brad just finish the whole thing off.
