Morning Blogland!!!
It's a lovely sunny, if cold, morning here in Essex!! and another challenge beckons over at Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club
This week the theme is :
So we need you to make a christmas card with a digital image - easy peasy!!!!
We are sponsored this week by the lovely Roberta from Prairie Fairy Designs - you really need to pop over and have a look at her lovely images - this week we all got to work with one of our choice and I chose "Snow Fairy - isn't she the cutest!!!!

I coloured her with pencils and blended with odorless white spirit for a change to give a more subtle look, I've glittered her wings, coat, hat and boots along with the snowman's "bobble", the swirls and snowflakes were all cut out of glitter card, the sentiment is one of mine which you can find at Sentiments 4 You  and I have re-sized it so that it punches out of the EK Success "Ticket Punch" perfectly :o)
My other challenges are :

So ... thanks for stopping by and catch you all soon :o)

Thank you all so much for your good wishes - they were lovely to read this morning :o)
Anyway ... today we see another challenge at Cooking it up with Katie
The recipe this week is:
Make it Girly

We are sponsored this time by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and we all got to play with their images :o)
Here's mine :o)

I've coloured with promarkers and cut the image out with a nestie, the backing paper is from a stack by Marianne - Spring and added some flowers / gems :o)
My other challenges are :

where Letraset are the sponsors

Before I go can I say sorry I haven't been commenting on all your lovely blogs much lately - been so busy with my sentiments blog and getting up and ready for the new challenge blog - but I will make a supreme effort to get round to you all in the next few days :o)

Hi All!!
Had some sad news last night - my Aunt .. .who is 92 ... has had a heart attack and is in hospital, she is quite frail and I'm off to see her shortly.
I wanted to make her a card this morning before I went and was searching for a sentiment to put on it and realised I didn't have any!
So I thought - there's probably quite a few of us that don't make "get well" cards very often and when you need some words - you haven't got any - so I designed a set of 6 especially for that and have just uploaded them to my blog Sentiments 4 You
I think there's something there for all ages, male or female :o)
Here's my card I'm taking with me

I tried a different technique with my Letraset Aquamarkers ... I coloured directly to the stamp and then spritzed with water and stamped to give a watercolour effect - then cut the image out with nesties - I did the same with the sentiment, butterflies are both Martha Stewart, paper is from the Henbury Lane collection by Papermania
Thanks for stopping by :o)

Evening All
Hope you are all okay :o)
Thought I'd share with you one of the cards I'm using on  my workshop tomorrow.  As you may have all gathered I love a square card!!! Anything else just won't do ... so when I was coerced into doing a workshop called "Anything But A Square" I sort of freaked!! But .. they didn't turn out too badly - still love my squares though!

This is one of the images off of Penny Black clear stamp set "Mimi's Christmas", I've coloured her with pencils this time for a change, the sentiment is from a new clear stamp set by Trimcraft, the edging punch is by Martha Stewart - Snowfall :o)
Hope you like it :o) thanks for stopping by :o)
