Good Morning Blogland!!!
Another two weeks has past and we are already up to Challenge #7 over at DO IT WITH DIGIS boy time sure does fly!!!
This week we have a fab challenge theme for you all ... we want you to ....
we are really lucky to be sponsored by Di from DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS
and she gave all the DT her backgrounds to work with - you really need to have a look and have a try working with them - they are brilliant!!!
Check out the DT cards for inspiration :)
Also this week can I say a MASSIVE welcome to Wendy Woo our new Diva - I'm sure you will have lots of fun with us :)
Here's my card ...

This is one of Di's gorgeous backgrounds CASTLE WINDOW WITH DRAPES and I've coloured with copics as are Tilda and Edwin, don't they look lovestruck ... awh!!!
I've added paper flowers to the window and the one behind Edwin's back, spruced it up with some glitter but left the card quite plain as I wanted the background to be the main focal point
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by :)
Don't forget to check out the other DT cards too
Catch up with you all soon

Afternoon All
Just thought I'd pop by and share with you a card I made for my classes this week ... this is one of three - but it's pink so it just had to be the first one I show you LOL
We did "cards with jewels" and we made pins and hanging jewels :)
Lots of fun was had and lots of stray beads went everywhere lol
I've used Dandelion Clock from Lili of the Valley and coloured with Promarkers, used glossy accents on her wings and sprinkled with "icicles", matted and layered and embellished with card candy from Craftwork Cards.  Pins were made by simply pushing beads onto a head pin and glueing each stage with glossy accents, I then popped them into a polystyrene block to "dry" which only takes about 10 minutes.  The sentiment is from one of my new clear stamp sets On Your Birthday which you can find at SENTIMENTS 4 YOU - they are also available as digital downloads too :)
Hope you likey :)
I'll be back to show you the others soon ... can't show you them all just yet and I have another lot of ladies tomorrow doing the class and they can't see all the cards before they make them!!!
Catch up with you all soon

Where does the weekend go ... Sunday already and it's been 2 weeks since the last TOTALLY TILDA challenge - time just flies when you are having fun ... So another challenge and this time our theme is : 
So we want to see your entry made of or embellished with some sort of chipboard
We are sponsored this time by the lovely Nikki from BUNNY ZOE CRAFTS
and she is offering the winner a £10.00 gift certificate to spend in her online store - you need to check out all her goodies - she has new bits arriving all the time!
Pop on over and check out all the DT cards as well - some great inspiration for you :)
Here's mine
I've coloured my Tilda with promarkers for a change and cut her out and sat her on my tag - which is a cuttlebug die that I cut out with chipboard and then cut out again with patterned paper and stuck the two together, the border is also a cuttlebug die - that to be truthful I forgot I had LOL - cut with chipboard and then cut again with the DP and stuck together - papers are from the K&Co McKenna range and these two are from the same double sided 12x12 sheet, then I added pearls and ribbon to embellish.
Hope you likey :)
