The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge #58 Summer or winter

Good morning!

There's a new challenge over at The Squirrel and the Fox. Thanks to everyone who took part last time for the 'Violet for Hodgkin's Lymphoma' challenge - seeing the lovely cards submitted really cheered my daughter up!

She has her last chemo on Wednesday, then a scan just before Christmas, and in January we hear if she's clear of the cancer. So there's not much longer to wait!

Now on to the current challenge which is Summer or Winter Our sponsor is Pink Cat Studio who have some great digis for sale, and also lots of activity sheets for children, so with the Christmas holidays coming up you might want to see if there's anything that will keep the little 'uns amused! Check out the page for 'free stuff' too - the paper I used for my card is free at the moment, it's so pretty!

I used Promarkers to colour the image, and also to colour the narrow strips of card on either side and which have been Glossy Accented. The bp was edged with a Fiskars Scallop border punch. The ribbon is from Hobbycraft, and the sentiment came with a Molly Bloom set that was a magazine freebie a couple of years ago.

And that, as they say, is that!

I will edit this post later to include the winner of Sacha's prize for the Violet challenge, and also to add any challenges I'm going to join in with: this post is scheduled as when you read it I will be at my brother's place in Derby, exchanging Christmas presents!

I hope you're having a good weekend! Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

This is gorgeous Mags. Such a cute image and love the colour combo. The strips look really shiny after having the glossy accent treatment. Hope you had a good weekend.
