Daisy Doodle's "Snow in Love" Sponsors For Fun

Here is my DT card this week at For Fun Challenges. Helen challenges us to use metal on our cards or projects this week which can be any metal (brads, aluminum, tin, tags, etc.) so dig out those metal pieces you know you've been dieing to use and let's see them on entry this week.

We are sponsored by Daisy Doodles this week and if  you want to know what the prize is you'll need to hop on over to the For Fun Challenge Blog to see all the great cards created for you by the DT.  Be sure to check out the link cause Daisy Doodles is having a Christmas Raffle you won't want to miss out on.

I had planned to play in some challenges this week but haven't made it yet. Been busy helping my daughter out with her business books and files and it's taking longer than I thought it would take. Probably because since I retired five years ago I haven't kept up with the new technology and all of the software I used is now obsolete. So, trying to learn the new software is challenging to say the least.  Family first and hobbies second for awhile.  I know I better get my buns busy and get some cards made or I'm going to be buying them this year and that is something I DO NOT want to do.

What I used to create this card:
  • Daisy Doodles "Snow in Love" Digi image
  • Digi Paper & CM Metallic Silver
  • Black/Silver Tin Sheet cut with Spellbinder's frame die and burnished
  • MS Branch punch - Scroll punch
  • Brads from stash covered with Xmas Red Stickles - Poinsettia's from stash - Stardust Stickles and Dew Drops for buttons
I really had a lot of fun making this card. The most challenging for me was trying to figure out how to use that tin paper I've had for years that came in a kit with tools, etc.  I'd taken the tools out and put them all in a box with the accessories and the tins so I have no idea where I got them or who made them.  Now I'm going to have to try and find a tutorial someone on You Tube to figure out how they are really suppose to be used.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
"Hugs" Carol
