Poor Henry

This challenge is another interesting one from our LSS, the Craft Stand in Malaga. As I've mentioned before, they make up identical $5 competition packs containing card-stock, patterned paper, some ribbon or fibre and an embellishment of some kind. You have a month to make that month's subject: either a card, LO or other item, using at least 80% of the kit. Then you leave your creation(s) at the store, and the customers vote for which they like the best. At the end of the month, the winner gets a $20 voucher to spend at the store, and their work displayed on the wall. I think that's a great idea, and a proper challenge for me, to enter something for merit rather than random selection for a change.

So of course I've gone all out for this! I fell in love with this adorable stamp when I saw it on the Whiff of Joy on-line store. I mean, doesn't he look pitiful? Don't you just want to gather him up and give him a big cuddle? He was perfect to showcase these completely un-girlie papers in the kit. I've only used about half of my pretties on this card, so watch out for more cards!

I wish I knew who makes all the papers and ribbon. I must find out. The chipboard corner is Twiddleybitz. I do know the challenges I'm entering them into though, in addition to the Craft Stand of course. Cute Card Thursday want us to use leaves/trees, and A Spoonfull (not my misspelling!) of Sugar have given us this prettiest sketch, which, of course, I've flipped!

to produce this:

Poor little Henry!
