Home sweet home


   Friday is here again and a new challenge at QKR Stampede begins. I have used the 'cottage' digi which I coloured using Promarkers for my card and design paper printed from a file called Country Treasures on a Tattered Lace CD ROM. The sentiment is computer generated.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Digi Choosday - anything goes
   Crafty Calendar - add lots of layers
   Crafty Catz - anything goes with optional sympathy
   CD Sunday Plus - anything goes
   Digi Designs - hand coloured image

   Colour Crazy - anythhing goes
   Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper - anything goes
