A few months back the shop I used to work in was asked to make some cards for Creative Cardmaking Magazine - we had a brief of 5 cards for £10.00 - a selection of bits and bobs were selected to value of £10.00 and then we made some cards
Here's mine :)

We used Papermania Woodland Folk Perfect Day clear stamp set, 12 x 12 Craft Creations papers and some bits & bobs
Hope you like it :o)

Goodness two weeks has passed since our last challenge at TOTALLY TILDA - time sure flies!!!!!
This week our theme is :
We are sponsored this week by the lovely Nikki of BUNNY ZOE CRAFTS - be sure to check out her store she has some fab things including the new range of Magnolias ... in fact my brand new Magnolias arrived yesterday!!! How happy was I!!!
Last week there was some confusion over what was allowed in the challenge so this week the lovely Susie has left details of exactly what you can use - make sure you check :o)
So ... onto my card ... here it is

I love this baby Tilda she is just soooooo cute!!!! I've coloured her with copics and embossed the background using whitewash colour core card and sanded it back.  Thought I'd keep it quite simple just adding some flowers, card candy and a ribbon
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by :o)
Catch up with you all again soon

Good Morning Blogland
Well ... I'm feeling a bit better this morning after getting an early night last night .... these migraines really knock me out for a few days :o(
Anyway .... it's Christmas time again and another challenge at DCD CHRISTMAS CLUB the theme this week is CHRISTMAS LACE
We are sponsored this time by ROBYN FETISH 
and we all got to play with some great digi images - please go have a look at all the DT cards .. we have all used different images and my fellow DT girlies have come up with some gorgeous creations!!
Here's mine

This is my first attempt at a door hanger!! My lovely friend Susie Sugar sent me some of these hangers - go check out her store DIE CUT DREAMS she has some amazing die cuts for sale and obviously get yourself some of these hangers ... they are so much fun to make!!!
The stocking is a digi image from Robyn Fetish and I flipped the image in photoshop so it was facing the other way and I've coloured the stocking and my sweet Tilda with copics.
The other thing I'm really excited about is my new Nestie Stamps!! OYSTER STAMPS have a range of clear stamps that fit your nesties perfectly!! I've got the ones that fit my Ribbon Trio Tag set and also a set that fits my circles/scallop cirlces/lacey circles all in one set!!  
The sentiment is one of mine which you can find at SENTIMENTS 4 YOU - I printed it out, stamped around it and then cut it out with the nestie - PERFECT!!! I LOVE THEM!!!

I would like to enter:
My Partner in Crime - Something New (my copics and my nestie stamps)
Cupcake Craft - Something New (my copics and my nestie stamps)
Just Magnolia - My Favourite Things (my copics, my nesties and, of course, my Magnolias!!

Thanks for stopping by :o)

Evening everyone
So sorry I'm late in posting today ... i've had the worst migraine for 2 days and just can't shift it :( .
We were supposed to be going to our good friend Garry's 50th birthday party tonight we've had to say we can't go - so disappointed!!!
I just needed to let you know that it's new challenge time at FAIRY FUN FRIDAY today where we want to see your BIRTHDAY CARDS!!
Here's my card .... I made it for Garry's birthday :o)

This is LEWIS .. he is such a fun image to work with and so appropriate for this card as we have known Garry for 25 years and he has never had any hair!! LOL!!  I've kept the card quite simple as it's for a man but couldn't resist the sentiment - it's one of mine and I've popped it on SENTIMENTS 4 YOU as today's Friday Freebie so get on over and grab it!!
No challenges for me today as I think I need to go lie down again now :(
Catch you all tomorrow with another Christmas creation
