The I.M Challenge

I was chatting via instant message to my friend Alison over the weekend and she said she was lackin in inspiration so we decided to challenge each other to make a card..
There were 3 challenges that she picked to incorperate which were
Gingersnap Chestnut theme Challenge – 'Heat'
Lots to do – 'People and/or places'
Paperbag Studios – 'Flowers'
And here is what i created...
As you can see it's not my usual style but i kinda like it, just wishing i had used a coloured card as i'm not loving the white, but i guess i can always give it a bit of an inking.
You can check out the card Alison made HERE

I'd like to say thank's to Alison, She is always an inspiration to me, and can always get me crafting. We often chat via MSN {or SKYPE} as a live in the middle of nowhere with only 1 'Crafty' friend living nearby..
Instant messenging is like having her in the room and i really enjoy having someone to craft with. So thanks hun...

Don't forget.. there is still time to join in my candy.. and just for those that dont like s'prizes here's a sneeky peek of 1 of the prizes
Happy Crafting
♥ HUGZ ♥
