Allsorts Challenge: Week No: 216 - Transport

Good Morning Crafters,

Here's hoping that this finds you all well and enjoying this fabulous Summer weather.  I know some of you are loving it more than others but it certainly puts smiles on everyone's face and everyone looks so healthy.
We are so busy at Let's Create as it is only 2 weeks today that we move into our new shop!!!!!  scarey what we have to do in this short space of time.  Today I had my last workshop in this shop and next week I can concentrate on getting the workshop area packed away - it sounds so much easier when you can't see what needs to be done!! Big thankyou to Denise (Box lady) for the fabulous chocolate cake to celebrate the last workshop (well any excuse for Denise's cake!)
We also purchased a new lap top this week - not by choice I might add - it died on us! we didn't have one for 4 days and you really don't realise how much you rely on your computer.
Anyway, back to the matter in hand.  Today's challenge is from our lovely Wendy and she has chosen
as our Challenge for this week and I have chosen something that we may not always look upon as falling under this category ........
A Pram!
I made this card for Pat and Geoff to celebrate the birth of their Granddaughter Lyla.  She is only a day old and proud Grandad has sent me some gorgeous photographs of his beautiful girl that he says he isn't going to spoil!!! whatever Geoff!!!

I have used the Tattered Lace Pram as the main image and layered it onto a Marianne die. We are stocking Tattered Lace now at Let's Create and I am loving using them. The background has been embossed using the Crafters Companion Patchwork A4 embossing folder.  Pat chose the colours.  The flowers and the beads are from Hobby House and the punch for the border at the bottom is an EK Success punch.
The card is an 8" x 8" size and I made a box for it too.

Bye for now

  7. Hi Jo
    What a pretty card for a baby girl, and its so apt considering the duke and duchess now have their little bundle of joy now. I was hoping for a girl for them but never mind! I think a pram is definitely a form of transport if you think outside the box. I wish I could do that more.
    Good luck with the move, I hate the moving process I hope it doesn't take too long to get things all settled into their places. I hope your workshop is bigger and better for you at the new shop.
    Best wishes from Katie-Louise

  8. Fantastic card Jo and great for our transport challenge. Hope everything goes ok with packing up and wishing you all the best in the new shop. Hopefully won't be long before I see it.
