Been busy all day making DT cards and doing "stuff!" on my sentiments blog - so .... because I am now a Fairy Princess lol ...

Good Morning Blogland!
I have a day of crafting ahead of me :o) I have DT cards to make and several birthday cards for the weekend - so no washing, ironing, cooking or cleaning - JUST CRAFTING!!!!
Thought I'd start the day by sharing with you a card I made for a male work colleague of my husband's - he's moving home - so I wanted to keep it quite masculine and very simple (no glitter, lace or flowers!!) - I also wanted to show you how digital sentiments are so versatile because they can be re-sized you can use them as the main focal point of your card - this one is part of a set of 6 and can be found at my sentiments Blog (it's the bonus freebie!!!) CLICK HERE TO TAKE A LOOK :o)

After printing the sentiment I cut it out in a nestability and inked it while it was still in the circle, matted and layered with two more nestabilities, the house is a punch

Two challenges for this one :o)

Thanks for stopping by :o)

Good Morning Blogland :o)

I'm soooooo excited!!! this is my first DT card for Totally Tilda - the challenge runs for two weeks and the theme this time is :

Make Your Own  Flowers

I was so pleased when Susie asked me to help out for a while so that Nicola could take some time out and am so thrilled to be working with a great bunch of ladies :o) don't forget to pop over check out all the DT cards and their blogs - their work is amazing!!  Here's my card -

I have coloured my Tilda with Promarkers, my biggest flower is from the 6 petal blue punch from woodware - you can find a tutorial of how to do that just here - from my friend Di at In2Crafting :o)
The smaller ones are done in the same way but using the 5 petal yellow punch and "tweaking" a bit.
My pin is from Vikki at Posh Pins and Charms and was a prize I won.
Just one challenge:
Thanks again for having me over at Totally Tilda - I am TOTALLY looking forward to the forthcoming challenges :o)
