Special To Me!


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess for the month Brenda O’Rear finishes off her month as hostess with one last fun challenge.

Brenda has challenged us to Use a dryer sheet flower on your card. It's a fun and easy technique. You can find a tutorial on how to create these on Splitcoast Stampers

I don’t use dryer sheets and I am not even sure that if there are dryer sheets available down here in Australia that they are the same as the ones used in the USA … so I decided to create my flower using tissue paper I received in a parcel recently. Other than not being a dryer sheet I have used the same technique as the tutorial above to create my flower.

My card uses MFT Stamps WBD You’re So Special to Me.

Here is the inside of my card. I used the sentiment which is also included in the stamp set.

The tissue paper made a great flower, Frances. Good thinking for a substitute. Adorable card, too.

The tissue paper worked just fine! Cute card!!

Another cutie!!! I don't use dryer sheets either, but had to go "borrow" some! You did an outstanding job improvising, Frances! Love that little bow!

That tissue paper worked so well! Cute card with that cutie on the front!

LOL, I suppose it's probably always warm enough for clothes to dry easily for you! The tissue looks great with the added glitter, and if you hadn't said I don't think I'd have realised you hadn't used a dryer sheet. It makes a perfectly sweet embellishment to go with your little girl!
