Favourite theme from 2022 @ MMM

 Hello everyone, I hope you are well and you are enjoying your crafting. We begin a new challenge at Make My Monday today, I have chosen one where you will need to look back during the year at Make My Monday - #192 Choose your favourite theme, giving the # and the title of the theme from 2022. To see the favourites and creations from the design team please visit the blog.

I chose from February 2022 # 172 Use Washi Tape. I have loads of it. Why? I have no idea, I love it but just don't use it enough, so here was another reason to use some. The main white card is 7 x 5 in. covered with a pretty reddy/tan colour, embossed using an embossing folder. The white panel has strips of Washi tape. The flower  is on a circle base of Washi tape. The sentiment stamp is by Lisa Horton. I hope you like my card and feel you will enter the challenge.

 Hello, welcome, I hope you are well and safe. Today we begin a new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz.  Helen has chosen #190 CAS (Clean and Simple). To see the creations by the design team please visit the blog. 

My card is a 6 x4 in, I coloured the edge of a white card with the broad end of a Promarker to give it the appearance of being a layer. The panel has been coloured with Worn Lipstick and blended with Picked Rasberry. The flower heads were stamped with the Picked Rasberry.  The sweet pea stamps were stamped onto white card, coloured with Promarkers, fussy cut then adhered to the card. The stamps and sentiment are all from an A4 set of stamps by Card Making Magic, an addition to the magazine Creative Stamping #111. I hope you enjoy the challenge and have fun.
