Delightful Challenge Thursday –Swirls and Curls!


Ok, hands up, who stole the week! How is it possible that it is Thursday already! Goodness! It will be Easter before you now it!! J

So today (because apparently it’s Thursday) we have a brand new challenge over at the Delightful Challenge Blog and our theme this week is Swirls & Curls!  So get out those ‘twiddly bits’ and join us! Hmmm, maybe I should rephrase that! J

We are sponsored by
who are offering this fabulous prize!
As it is my brother and his wife’s wedding anniversary in November I thought I would make them a card using the adorable Love Birds and Wedding and Anniversary Sentiment Set.
I believe that my sister-in-law does not wear quite as much eyeliner as I appear to have given the lady in this duo!  Or is that the male?  I think my brother may say that he wears way more eyeliner than that!! He, he!!

Image: Love Birds
Dies: Tonic ‘Indulgence Pop Up Sentiments Square Base’ & ‘Frond Finesse’ – Tattered Lace ‘Midi Blooms’ – Sizzix Ovals
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Papermania ‘Eau de Nil’ – DCWV
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Gems

So wing your way over to the Delightful Challenges Blog to see the fab designs created by the DT and don’t forget to visit the shop for the cute digi heaven!

Thanks so much for looking, and have a lovely day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
