Sweet Valentine

Hello Bloggers

It's the start of Challenge #9 at Lemon Shortbread and I am sharing something different with you today that's had me hooked since September last year

Pocket Letters!
I just love these things. Little pieces of art, the same size as ATC's or trading cards, displayed in plastic envelopes. I joined a pocket letter swap group and we make them on themes and add little crafting goodies to the back of the pockets, along with a note and a teabag/coffee sachet/hot choc sachet. It is just a great way of making new friends, sharing your artwork and swapping goodies :)

So onto my make this week
I used the super Heart Sunglasses Girl, coloured with ProMarkers and fussy cut her out before sticking her to the front of the plastic wallet. The ATC's I kept quite simple and stuck mainly to the red & black theme using die cuts & a doily I coloured black, washi tape, ribbon and some flatback gems & pearls

I added a February calendar tab to the front of the plastic wallet and coloured a metal double heart embellishment sticking it over the 14th. I love that this image is 'grown up' and can be used for many occasions

As you can see you don't have to just stick to cards when using digi image and can enter our 'Anything Goes' challenges with any type of crafting that uses a digi. If you enter using a Lemon Shortbread image and you win, you get an extra image. So come along and join our challenge, and also join our Facebook group for all the latest news and new releases

Happy Crafting

For You

Hi Bloggers

Today is the start of Challenge #8 at Lemon Shortbread, I can't believe its number 8 already

I used the gorgeous 
for my card this week

I love this image. I had the perfect embellishments to match the image, a long (over 1m) strip of felt toadstools/mushrooms that I brought months ago for £1 from Lidl. I coloured her with ProMarkers, colours listed below, and added liquid pearls to the bell on her hat. I kept the layers quite simple with plain red & white card along with swirly green paper and Doodlebug glittered paper from my stash. Other than the small flat backed pearls and the simple sentiment I didn't feel the need to add anything else and I'm really happy with how my card turned out
I hope you will come along and join our challenge this time, as always we have an 'Anything Goes' theme with the chance to win up to 4 Lemon Shortbread images
