A card a layout and a freebee

Busy busy busy, but I have managed to set aside some time to do a little post and make a little freebee for you all.

Well I'm hosting the Design House Digital 4 Play challenge today. Available Uk 24 hour clock 12.00 and USS 6.00. You can buy all 4 of the kits I used for the grand total of $3.00 on the 22nd April Only  
I had to pick 4 kits from DHD to play with, well thats a really hard job as there are loads of great kits to play with. 

I picked some lovely Mattes by Vanessa Fenton and some amazing papers by Mary Moseley to start with as they were both kits I love and had already decided I wanted to use, but I decided to challenge myself and pick a template as I hardly ever use one. The one I chose is by Tisha Chestnut and I think it offers loads of scope for playing with. The last kit I chose was by Kristin Damon and has some stitches in that I really liked and papers and a journalling block that  I thought would work well with my other choices. I avoided picking embellishment kits as I tend to use a lot of embellishments.

Anyway here is the layout that I made from the kits. Couldn't help myself and cut out one of the flowers from the background paper to make the flower embellishments, 

I also made this card using the same template and kits,

 I think you could give this card to either a man or a woman and its gone into my emergency I'm an idiot card stash , for those times when time just gets away from you and the next thing you know its .......s birthday tommorow and you need to get the card in the post.

Anyway if you want to play along with the challenge or just buy one or two of the kits you can find out more on the 4play blog post

So as promised here is my freebee. Hope some of you find it ueful

you can download this freebee paper here

So that's it for me for today
BYEE for now
