Wishing You Good Fortune

Hi Bloggers,

I'm here with a little post for you on behalf of SarahHurley365 and of course, the Hurley Girlies.

I recently came across the most brilliant template for making paper fortune cookies, and of course I just had to give it a go!!!

You will need:

Circles of pretty paper (I used Sara's Be Mine Digital Kit)
Sayings of your choice (inspirational or cheeky!)

Fold your circles in half and put a small amount of glue on the inside of the circle.

Fold over to stick.  Pinch together the two edges of the semi-circle to make the fortune cookie shape.

Put a small blob of glue to hold the two sides together - but put your fortune in first!!!

 Thanks for looking everyone - hope you have been inspired!!!  Keep checking the Challenge Blog for more ideas and creations.

Just One Shape

Hi there Bloggers,

It's time for a brand new challenge with Team Hurley, and this time, our challenge has been set by the very lovely Claire N, and here she is to explain all:

"Hello Claire N here with February's challenge. It's my first time at hosting this challenge, and I would like you to choose just one shape and roll with this I mean choose just one shape and use it as the main focus of all your embellishments. As it's valentine's this month, this theme is perfect for all your heart themed cards. But equally I think any shape, whether simple or complex will be effective, so have fun !"

As always, there are some brilliant prizes for the winner of this challenge, plus two runner up prizes, so get your entries in ASAP!!  (Although, you have until 28th February to enter!!)

Here's my contribution to this challenge - my chosen shape is a love heart.


Using Serif, I played around with elements from January's A Few Of My Favourite Things Printabble Documented 365 Kit, to give my chosen image a border.  I printed a sheet of the same colour as the border and punched out some tiny hearts, which have been mounted on 3D foam to give my card dimension.  And you know I can't resist a bit of glitter!!!

Hope you like my creation, now head on over to the Challenge Blog for some amazing inspiration and to submit your entry!!!!
