Harry and Hilly

It’s new release time over at The Crafty Pad this week.

Over the next four days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) we are releasing FOUR adorable new images and we are giving you the chance to WIN one of them and/or the entire set.  Read on to find out all the details.

I would like to introduce you to Harry and Hilly, they are just so cute:

This fab image is called Harry and Hilly on Toadstool and I have coloured it with ProMarkers.  The papers are from the Bearly Mine Designs – Simply Dots collection and Fairyland Dreams collection and the card stock is Core’dinations  I have had the hessian in my stash for ages and I just added three buttons and a metal corner that I painted with some pebeo paint to embellish my card.  The edges of the papers, image and sentiment have all been inked with Old Paper Distress ink.

I used the same papers to decorate the inside of my card:

I think I might give this card to my husband for our Wedding Anniversary, Harry and Hilly make such a lovely little couple and I just love this great little quote that came free with one of my magazines.  I just cut it out, used my Woodware punch to trim the corners and mounted it onto Core'dinations card stock:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 153 – Use buttons
Whimsy Stamps Challenge 37 – Spots and Dots
Polka Doodles Challenge Week 18 - De-stress!
Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge 78 - Distressing
One Stop Craft Challenge 81 - Celebrations (mine is an anniversary card)
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - 4 legged friends
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 96 - In the garden
Let's Craft and Create Challenge 44 - Special Occasion (wedding anniversary)

Well as I said earlier, you can win this image and the entire set of 4 – all you have to do is:
  • For another chance of winning, become a follower of The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog and leave us another comment saying you are a follower (new or existing) and get a second entry into the draw.
  • For a third chance to win - comment on ALL 4 of the release days (today, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) and you will be entered into a separate draw to win the complete set of 4 images.
Comments will close at 12pm GMT on Monday 14th May, so you have just over a week to play along). The winners will be drawn and announced over on The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog on Thursday 17th May.
