Dream Valley Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are well and having a good weekend.  I decided that this morning was the perfect time to tackle the cupboard that stores my daughters shoes.  They were just thrown into a couple of large plastic boxes and spilling out everywhere.  So we went and bought some shelving units for them to keep all their shoes on.  So much tidier and much easier to get at the shoes.  Don't know about you but I get a real feeling of satisfaction when tackling a job like decluttering and organising.  

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Dream Valley.  Sadly, this is my last project as part of the design team.  Dream Valley was the first design team I joined and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with them.  But I feel that now is the right time to move onto pastures new.  Thank you Dream Valley for having me on your team and for believing in me in the first place.

Now for this fortnight's challenge our theme is:
Fathers Day/Male

For my project I created four central panels by stamping onto kraft card with two different Papermania stamps that I have.  The Fathers Day stamp is from Wild Rose Studio.  I added some ribbon across the centre and some faux stitching.  Another simple card but very effective.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.  For full details of the challenge and to upload your entry just pop over to Dream Valley.  While you're over there check out the inspiration from the rest of the design team.
