My entry for Kaboodles Doodled Challenge # 13

Hi all hope you had a fabby weekend even though it was so cold brrrrrr,
For my entry to Kaboodles Doodles Challenge, "This week the challenge is Squares and Rectangles are out! We want to see shaped cards and items".
is my new tool pot that i made from a soup tin its just perfect much nice than the drab black desk tidy i was using and it does'nt keep falling over lol, i was inspired to make this by Beth when i saw hers.
I have used DCWV cardstock from the spring glitter stack and ribbon, gems etc from my stash. I also made a base from a felt table protector (i bought it ages ago and got size wrong far too small for my table so glad i got some use out of it lol) this stops it from sounding tinny and scratching table too.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking :)

Evening all, wow two cards in one day lol this one is a card i have done for Cupcake craft challenge
which is a sketch and this is what they would like: "You can turn it sideways, or change the dimensions, but we want to see the original design. In the card I would like you also to use the colour BROWN; be it in the embellishments, Paper or Image, or in all of them. It is up to you to decide where. Also I would like you to have AT LEAST 1 scalloped edge in your creation. The sentiment's position, and whether you want to include one, is up to you"
So this is what i did another decoupaged image (cos i do love to do decoupage) it is a free download from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts
called Harry, papers are from Anita's classic reds, sentiment from dotties christmas download and rest from stash :)
Thanks for looking hope you like it Val xxx
