all white (well almost)

butterflies  a card done for someone who loves them but with not much else really
wanted to use mainly white here so used little bits of lilac card as borders around to break it up a bit, have used white A4 card, then a bit smaller lilac, layered with embossed (swiss dots on cb) and then border cut on martha stewart punch, added some lilac ribbon, then layered another lilac white with sentiment card and then put silver peel offs onto acetate and cut out, then of course added some bling!
ended up doing 3 of this type of card now, as everyone wants one!!! typical!

I want to add this to challenges at
ces challenges - anything but a Christmas card
the crafty pad - embossing
craft your passion - anything goes

feeling a bit dotty

I have been playing with kanban stamps, and decided toget the promarkers out of their hidingplace
used simply that, promarkers on kanban stamped image, mounted on to some polka dot paper (love polka and gingham most out of paper so those of you with the fettish will understand how hard it was to cut this as its double sided paper too!)
added a sentiment done on the computer and hey presto a cute card for someone!

I want to use it for the challenge at

lovely wreath

Don't ya just love this wreath??
its from Daisy Doodles, out of the 12 days of Christmas set!

I have used it this week for our challenge at DD the theme being FESTIVE COLOURS, and whats even better is that if you enter there is chance to win a $10 spend at the store!!!

The image I coloured using my sakura pens again, am getting a lot of use out of these lately, just love the shimmer on them.
I added gems just because I love sparkle and then added a mini bow over the one on the digi, that I am afraid is where I have struggled with this card, as I have tried all kinds of bows here, big and small, different types of ribbon, even had some jingle bells on there at one point, but have settled with this one!

then of course all I did was layer it and make into an easel card!
I added a mini calendar too as I think it turns a card into a little gift too!!

talking of easel cards - For those of you who did the blog hop, I will be sorting out a winner of the shaped easel blanks when I get home on Tuesday, so keep your fingers crossed!!

I also want to use this card for the challenges at....

MAWTT - someone special
stamp something - christmas colours
polka doodle - all about sentiment
the secret crafter - christmas
the crafty pad - anything goes
paper sundaes - gift it

soooo what are you waiting for??? off you go and take part in DD challenge!!!

Well done baby giraffe!

I made this card for my baby giraffe (Holly 19) from her mummy, as she has just been given an internship at Disney in Orlando
I am just so proud

I used the image from Daisy Doodles
and coloured with Sakura pens to get shimmer! (doesnt take a great photo though!)

If you hurry there is still time to enter the DD blog challenge!!

I layered on some black card and then some red mirriboard and added some feathers before putting onto some beloved polka dot paper!
I used the Disney Font just to see if she notices that little bit!

I want to add this card to the challenges at
moving along with the times - for someone special
Delightful sketches - new beginnings ( I hope this is a new beginning for her!!!)

thanks for looking
