Evening All!!
Sorry I'm so late in posting but i've been at work all day today - been a busy one - as we are moving premises next week our sale started today.  Anyway ... here is my DT card for DCD Christmas Club Challenge which, this week, is MISTLETOE.
This week we all got to play with Gillian who is from our Sponsor Prairie Fairy - Roberta's images are fab and were a pleasure to work with.
I've coloured my Gillian with promarkers, done some distressing and added some pom pom ribbon.  My snowflake is from Marianne Creatables and my "ticket" sentiment I designed on the computer, printed out and did some distressing on it

Afternoon blogland!!

Here's my DT card for DCD Christmas Club challenge this week - Sweet Christmas Wishes.  We are sponsored by Robin Fetish Designs at I Did It Creations.

Morning All!!
Off to work this morning so i'll make this a quickie - here is my third DT card for Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club  and i'm loving every minute of it!!!  What a dream to colour my Edwin as Santa and I thought i'd do him a bit differently this time - I just used my Cool Grey selection of promarkers and made him black&white - I really like the effect and kept everything else black, white or silver to match :o)
The Challenge is "Santa"

Hope you like him and thanks for looking :o)

Hey all!!
Weather not so good here today so spent the day making some DT cards for future challenges and generally having fun!! Couldn't go the day though without posting so decided to do a simple card - I've had this digi image for a while from Karen's Doodles - he's called Peekaboo Boy and their challenge this week is clean and simple so that fitted the bill well.  I've coloured him with promarkers and used nestabilities and a Martha Stewart butterfuly punch - the sentiment is from Sentimental Sundays and was a freebie.

The challenges I am entering are :

Thanks for looking :o)

Hey everyone!! I'm Back!!
Well ... I've spent all day today making the wedding card and the guest book and I have just finished yay!!! The best news is my daughter loves them both :o)  The colours and theme of the wedding are pink and butterflies so I needed to incorporate both - I have covered chipboard with dotty bazill, and bound it together with my bind it all machine and tied ribbon around the rings, the names and date are cut on my Cricut machine and the butterflies are Martha Stewart - I'm really pleased with it :o)

And Guess what i've found a challenge to enter:

Thanks for looking
and can I just say thank you for all the lovely comments you leave me I really appreciate them :o)
Lots of Love
