Thunder & Lightning

Good morning! Firstly I must apologise for the lateness of my post, I was supposed to share my card with you yesterday for the new Cupcake Craft Challenge, but my old pals Thunder & Lightning just weren't having any of it! I have to say I kinda like stormy weather, but mainly when I'm nice and safe indoors! Yesterday I got stuck out in it and got drenched, typical!!!

Well, here's my card for the new challenge, better late than never! Donna has chosen GIFT CARD as our theme this week! I've kept my card fairly C & S as there's no patterned paper on it, just the doodles that I did with a white gel pen. The pocket is cut out from card which I coloured with my Denim Blue Promarker, and the stitching is added with my gel pen again. Fairly simple really.

There are some lovely examples from my DT buddies over at the Cupcake blog, so please head over there and if you have time leave a little comment, even us DT members love to receive comments! Speaking of comments, I have to say thank you to all the people that left lovely comments on my Dino card last week, it's ages since I've had so many comments! Also at the Cupcake blog you'll find details of the fab sponsors for this week's challenge (Bugaboo Stamps), as well as this month's sponsors (Crafts U Love, Mo's Digital Pencil and Sew Sweet)!
