Dutch Dare and Card Patterns


I made this card last weekend and when I went to tay with my boyfriend for a few days left it at home. So I’m quite late in posting it and both challenge are over that I used it for. The kitty in the picture is my cat who goes by many names but I call her Princess. I made this card with Card Patterns Sketch 20. I also used the challenge over at Dutch Care Card Challenge which was a color inspiration photo. As soon as I saw the photo I thought of the Bridgeport line from SEI. I won this collection from Papercrafts magazine and these papers are absolutely beautiful! Speaking of winning I was so fortunate to win Marti's blog candy from the UYS blog hop! She sent me some papers and chipboard from DCWV Green Stack. I loved that line but resisted because I have so much paper but I'm so excited to own it now. It will be perfect for the nature photos we've been taking.


Here's a picture that I took on one of our recent nature trips. I don't take many of them because my boyfriend is the official camera man on the trips because he's a bit faster than me at spotting the birds and I honestly just love to enjoy the sights. He's learning so much more about his camera and photography. By the end of the summer he's hoping to have some great bird shots. Its a little tricky with only a medium zoom lens but that just means we need to learn to be sneakier.
