Debut at The Crafting Cafe & A Freebie

Howdy do-day bloggers!
Have you heard about the brand new blog challenge?
Over at The Crafting Cafe things have been all of a hustle & a bustle
getting ready for the launch & for our first ever challenge!
We put out a DT call & had soooo many fantastic crafters apply!
Unfortunately we couldn't give everyone a place although we wished we could!
Anyhoo, lets get down to business!
Our challenge theme this month is a nice easy one to kick off with!
Here's what I've created!

A little scalloped rocker card. Cut using my Grand Nestabilities
Scalloped Circle Die. This card will fit nicely into a 6"x6" envelope!
The card-stock I have used is from Lidl! I love the weight of it!

The image I have used is Loving Embrace from 

Who are kindly sponsoring this months challenge.
Lindsay is also a team leader at The Crafting Cafe
I coloured the loving couple up with Promarkers then cut out with a 
circle nestie. I have to admit that my die slipped a bit when I was cutting &
 my image is slightly off centre but I think I can just about get away with it! lol

The design paper is from Papermania & the sentiment was from a blog
called Sentiments 4 You sadly it's closed at the moment but I hope
that Lynne will open it up again soon!

I'm not sure who the flowers are by but I purchased them locally at
Southfield Stationers  & the lace came from a local haberdashers

Here's another view from the side.
I'm pleased with how this card turned out, as for once it was how I
imagined it would look!
Pop over to the challenge blog & check out the other DT creations!
They will be introducing themselves one by one over the course of the month.
I can't wait to see what you create for our 

**During my blog hopping to leave some love for all the lovely
entries to our challenge, I noticed one entry which was sporting a
sentiment that I created a while back & offered as a freebie on my blog!

It was so exciting for me to see it being used!
 If you'd like it you can snag it here!
All I ask is that you please don't share, you can of course send people 
over to grab it for themselves!**
Thanks for visiting!
