Craft Barn Q and L Better and Tando Crafts - Letters



At last I can re-join challenges and "play" again as the Summer holidays have ended  :)

This fortnights  Q and L challenge at the The Craft Barn  is Patience or Better - I chose a great quote from Abraham Lincoln - it made me smile! Now as I was creating this I knew this was apt for another couple of challenges I remembered the Take It Make It Challenge but could not remember the other challenge ....  hooray as I was looking through my links I found it Tando Creative  Challenge which closes soon and September Challenge is letters - my quote is full of them!!  PC  generated inked and pecncil coloured and Biro pen to highlight on the journal page :)
Lots of inky fun on my journal page and a fussy cut Stampotique boy, TH, PA, C.I. and Dylusion stamps, ink pen, tissue paper for the background  - had a lovely time :)
 
I am also entering this into the Craft Stamper - Take It Make It - September Challenge which ends tomorrow
 
Thanks for looking have a lovely evening
