HANG IN THERE ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #43}

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day with your loved ones and are ready for whatever 2013 has to throw at you..  

This week our theme for Challenge #43 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is Centre Step Cards. I used the  Scenery image from Paper MakeUp Stamps.  You can purchase it here.   The sentiment is a freebie from A Piece of my Heart (Sharon).

The scenery was coloured with H2O's and the sentiment was coloured with dry chalks. Once again I used some paper folded circle embellies.  The design papers are from BasicGrey and Fabscraps.

Not so sure about the angling of the main image, as my regular visitors will know that I very seldom angle anything on my creations, lol.  But, hey, nothing ventured nothing gained.



I am off again to link up to the following challenges with this:
Debby is also hosting a 'Favourite 5 of 2012' challenge.  I am sure you all agree its quite difficult to choose your own best 5, but here goes:

Pick No.1: Using Apple Annie from DS4J - you will find the post here.

Pick No.2: Using a Wedding Couple from DS4J (note that naughty hand).  You will find the original post here:

 Pick No.3: Using Best Friends Sitting from Eureka - You will find the original post here:
 Pick No.4: Using Apple Annie from DS4J - you will find the original post here:
 Pick No.5: Using Raking Leaves from QKR - You will find the original post here:

Thanks for looking.

Wishing all my lovely Followers a wonderful happy, healthy and crafty 2013!!

  10. Hi Desire, which is a beautiful stamp image. The sunset and the whole class nature have you staged and colored.
    And the buttons you have refolded from beautiful papers. A terrific job. I think you're the only one that the buttons makes it look so beautiful.
    I've seen so far at least on any other blog, except to your.

    Greetings from Germany and a Happy New Year 2013 for you and your family wants you Carmen :)

  54. Great cards. Thanks for sharing the "masculine" one in the challenge at Here Come The Boys I know what you mean about putting the image on an angle, it looks great but it's so hard not to "straighten it up" if you're that way inclined :-)
    Hope to see you next time too, Donna ☺
