Red at the sunday stamper

Good morning lovely peeps - time for another day in blogland! Did you see the new blinkie on my sidebar - I spotted it on karen's bar when I popped over yesterday - I didn't know Barbara Gray had a blog but she has - press the button and find out more!!!!

Today my card features a digi of a maple leaf that I was lucky enough to win from apassionforstamps. I think it was from allsorts CB. I hadn't seen this company before but they have a lovely range of images including this one.





I coloured the image in using promarkers (not sure how much longer I'll be saying that for since I was naughty yesterday and ordered the POTW speccies from create and craft - on flexipay of course!!!) and mounted on the red card - the background black card was run through a sheena douglass embossing folder and I rubbed treasure gold all over it before mounting on more red and a black 7 inch card. Now I come to think about it - there isn't really any proper stamping on this card - sorry Hels - a bit naughty of me!!!!!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Big Hugs all. Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for dropping by! Nothing planned here today - I'm baking sticky toffee and apple pudding this afternoon though as I'm having a girls night in tonight at a friends house. We're eating and playing roulette! Should be fun!

Big Hugs
