Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 42..Recipe..3..2..1

Morning everyone, we had lots of thunderstorms yesterday...sunny one minute...torrential rain the next...who knows what the weather will be like today but make sure you take a brolly if you're venturing out anywhere lol!

We are on week 42 over at the Secret Craft Saturday Challenge and it was my turn to choose this weeks theme...and I chose a recipe...3 BUTTONS...2 DESIGN PAPERS...1 RIBBON!

I've used this rather cute little whale image...he is a digi download from Dustin Pike and I have coloured him in with Promarkers! I found the design papers on my computer...I've had them for yonks and don't know who they are by only that they are called 'Life's a Beach!' I created the sentiment on the PC and the buttons, brad and ribbon are from my craft stash! I hope you'll be able join us for this challenge as always I look forward to seeing what you come up the meantime don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog where you can see of oodles of inspiration from my DT buddies! TFL :)

Hello Donna,
What a great card ,my Son's 19th birthday is on Tuesday and I have to make a card for him. You have been so nice to me and I did not realise till today you are a designer for secret crafter,I am not so great with the computer and have to get help from my Hubby or the boys.I am learning though I have become a follower of you and will use your Saturday challenge to make my Son's card.
I have been doing the garden most of the day and my hubby has been sorting out my blog so will get crafting in the morning....If I can move...
