Guest Design Spot

This is my second post today, please scroll down to see my DT card for Christmas Crafting with sketches.

Well the weather stayed fine yesterday for my visitors so we had a very pleasant afternoon walking the dog and then had a leisurely lunch in a local tearoom. I hope to catch up with everyone later.

I was lucky enough to be given a Guest Design spot from Chris at Crafting Heaven to showcase her new digi venture. This week everyone is showcasing Dino so I made a Father's Day card for my daughter to give her Dad.

I've coloured Dino with promarkers and die cut with a square nestie die and used some antique linen DI before removing the die. The red mat is another Spellbinders die and I've used some of the cut out hearts to decorate the corner. Backing paper is from We R Memory Keepers and was a magazine freebie. Card is finished with some bakers twine. Sentiment was computer generated.
I made a fairly plain insert to match.

Thank you Chris for the chance to use one of your digis, I really enjoyed colouring Dino. If you 'd like to see more of Chris's images you'll find them here.
