A couple of girls with hope

Just a couple of cards I made today for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges over on SCS for their card drive for the Anderson Cancer Center in Texas.

This first one is for Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #10 to make a shaped card base that wasn't a circle, square or rectangle and for CR84FN65 to use these gorgeous colours. I downloaded this fab digi stamp from Saturated Canary's blog on the freebies page and it is just gorgeous to colour. I will admit this is my first EVER digi stamp (probably because my printer is pretty naff, but I printed it out at work!) and I think I'm a new convert. There are so many gorgeous stamps from this company that I love and will  download now I know my school printer ink works with my copics!

And here's my card. Isn't she just gorgeous?!


And my next card is for Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #12 to be inspired by a song from a show or movie - can you guess which one mine is?! Of course, it's Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend from Marilyn Monroe's film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and of course I just had to use my Marilyn stamp for this one! I also used the sketch from Viva La Verve's Sketch #3 for October (although I have varied it somewhat!) and this is also for Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #238 to do some paper piecing. I love this Marilyn in a spotty dress!


And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
