Normally on a Monday I’m quite excited to post the new Craft Your Passion challenge and I was also delighted to make this card with this sweet,sweet image but then I heard the sad news that Jacqui,creator of The Digi Garden designs and our sponsor for this week,had suddenly passed away.Although I never knew this lady personally I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to her family and friends and my thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
I’ve added a link to her store,even though it is now closed,so that if you were not familiar with the site you may take a look at the endearing little characters.It would be lovely also if you took the time to peek at the rest of the Craft Your Passion DT’s cards and projects.I think they make a beautiful tribute.We are also welcoming our new members this week.
The challenge is to use Pastel Colours this week so I just had to go out and induldge in some items from the new Papermania Spots & Stripes Pastels collection.I’ve accented them with some pink and light coloured kraft card.And adding my own take on the theme I coloured this little cutie with Soft Pastel Pencils too.The flowers are die cut and have buttons tied with paper twine added to the centres.The sentiment is stamped directly onto the patterned paper.
