Digital Tuesday Challenge DT Card

Hi all today we have a new challenge for you at Digital Tuesday and this week it is my turn to choose the theme which is
THANK YOU OR GIVE THANKS
this is what we would like to see on your cards/projects, maybe you want to thank someone or give thanks for something special.

It will soon be time of Harvest Festival which was in my mind when I thought of this theme, I used to love this celebration when I was a young girl in The Salvation Army.  The church was always full, we had real bread made into the shape of corn and plaited, everyone took some sort of home grown vegetables, it was all put on show at the front of the church.  Although it was Autumn I always felt so warm in the company of so many friendly people.  I was in the choir and also played the tambourine, three of my brothers all played an instrument in the band.
Anyway enough of my memories onto the challenge.

This weeks sponsor is


The winner of this challenge will receive 1 set of images and 30% discount off purchases from My Grafico store.

My Grafico gave the DT the set "Fancy Flowers" by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff to work with.

I had already made my card using a Precious Moments image as you can see below.

Although I love this image so much I am not sure about the rest of the design, it was not what I had envisaged in my mind.  I would be interested to see what you think of it, I am sitting on the fence so to speak.
I coloured the image with Copics, the side panel I embossed then punched holes and threaded some ribbon I also added some card candy.

For some wonderful inspiration please have a look at the DT projects they are beautiful.

We look forward to seeing you at the challenge sending hugs to all and see you later.

Lorraine, it's gorgeous. Those images are beautiful and so well coloured in. It's amazing how we can be so critical of our own cards. I love it too as it's purple. I'm sorry I haven't been to your blog but things are so x.x.x.x but I plod on. I see you've been naughty and changed the look of your blog. I might have to look there sometime as I've felt like a change with mine for some weeks now!!! Take care my friend, Kym xxx
