Tag you're It - CD Sunday DT

It's Sunday again already, so time for a new challenge over at CD Sunday, this weeks challenge is 'Tag you're it', easy really, we want to see a tag on your creation,  mine is my first go and a steampunk style card, I recently bought the MCS Tinkering with Steampunk CD which I've used for the Tag and BP and also the sprocket dies from Spellbinders which I cut from matt gold card, I thought this would be ideal as a card for a fella or a child.

All change

It's time to say farewell to one DT (boohoo)with my last project for Delightful Challenges as I've come to my last week, I can't believe the year went so quickly, it's been such fun with all their lovely images to work with.  

But I did have some good news this week (yipee), that I'm really excited about, I'm joining the DT over at My Time To Craft, so it all fits in quite nicely for me, and will help to keep me occupied, my first project there will be on 31st Jan.

Our theme this week at Delightful Challenges is 'Valentines, but No Cards' my project is a pillow gift box with several embelishments, i've used the Cupid Ridley digi and given him a little 'just for you' ticket to hold,  the digi's and BP are all available from Digital Delights by Louby Loo, he was coloured with promarkers and sakura glitter pens, my 3 hearts are made with my new memory box dies, and finished off with an organza ribbon bow and a little heart gem.

Seeing Double - OLLCB DT

Monday morning gain already, where did the weekend go?  This time over at Ooh-La-La Challenge we're seeing double, no not from too much falling down water !!  we want to see your image twice, well I did mine three times, yeh I know trust me to be different, I decided to go Masculine this week, my images and BP this time are from 'Boys to Men'  I thought there was a bit too much Blue/white and added some Marianne Creatables die cut flourishes they reminded of anchors and waves and I thought the red mirri gave a nice bright contrast.

Haystacks Scarecrow - Delightful Challenges DT

The challenge over at Delightful Challenges this week is Distressed/Vintage, it doesn't show very well, but the Haystacks digi which I coloured with Promarkers has tattered straw edges which I cut into several times and frayed them, the colouring is meant to look patchy in line with a distressed/faded look a scarecrow would have from being out in all weathers.  My die cuts are by Marianne Creatable, BP is from Artylicious, and riboon from my stash.
This week our sponsor is

The winner will receive Sherwood Edwin and Tilda with apple Mini's

Enchantment - CD Sunday DT

Morning all, another gloomy and cold day, I really could do with some sunshine even for just for a couple of hours, we seem to have been shrouded in fog for ages now and have had to have the lights on all day this past couple of weeks.

This week our challenge over at CD Sunday is enchantment, I thought this decoupaged Fairy from Debbi Moore seemed quite enchanted with the flower and butterfly and would suit the theme perfectly. The BP is also from Debbi Moore, printed onto Hammered card and the borders were made with an MS Punch.

Fabulous Fifties - Delightful Challenges DT

It's new release time over at Digital Delights by Louby Loo, this month they have a fabulous set of digi's themed on the Fabulous Fifties.  I used Rockaround Sue, Fifties DP's, 50's Music Set. I can't say that I've ever seen a pink and black spotty poodle ! but the idea amused me and then he matched his mistresses dress, yep I know I'm weird, but I've been this way for many years now and it's probably to late for me to change now.

So the challenge this week at Delightful Challenges is Pink, Black & Silver 
Our sponsor this week
Scrapy Land is offering a $20 gift card to their store!!

Sea life - C D Sunday DT

Morning all. This week our challenge over at CD Sunday is Sea Life, so a good excuse to use this image from Joanna Sheens' Jayne Netley Mayhew Set, I decided to keep it quite simple for me as it's such a lovely image, my BP is from an Embossibilities CD by Sharon Duncan, I also used a MS Punch and the swirly die which is so delicate is by Memory Box, although it doesn't show in the photo I also used a little glitter to make the water sparkle.
