SCS Challenge - Recipe - DT Card

The theme this week set by our very talented Jane and she has chosen

A Recipe 
consisting of 1 image, 2 papers, 3 flowers, 4 brads and 5 gems/pearls

I've not followed a recipe before and thought it was going to be really easy as I didnt have to think about what I was going to put on me card, boy was I wrong lol.  I just kept wanting to add more hahaha.

The flowers were going to be snowflakes but it looks like, when clearing my hard drive last week, I may have deleted a file I need for my cutter grrrrrr.  So I need now to look for my install disks again (having put them away 4 years ago lol)  So out came my flower stash and I picked these lovely shimmery white bejewelled flowers (I think they look xmassy lol).

I found these papers on my hard drive while I was clearing out but have no idea where I have them from :o(  Again I thought they looked xmassy and I love the duck egg blue/brown combo.  I used an image from Lily of the Valley 2010 Xmas range and coloured with my Copics.  I wanted to have a very light touch on the colouring and it was hard not to reach for the darker colours and add more lol.

This is the last week for the DT call so get adding your blog details to the side bar on the right hand side of the challenge blog.

Also an announcement......   Congratulations to two lovely ladies LINDA & JANET.  They will be joining us on the DT from next week.  Please pop on over and visit their blogs and give them a warm SCS welcome.

Thats all for this week so go on grab a coffee and hop around and visit out DT blogs for so more inspiration

SCS Challenge - One Layer Card - DT Card

 This weeks challenge has been set by der lovely Helen, and her chosen theme is...

'One Layer Cards' or

A card where the image is stamped or printed directly on to the card base,
with no additional layers, and minimal embellishment.
A real easy challenge for everyone today as someone didnt like me at all this week lol.  Not only did I end up with a bout of food poisoning and twisted/sprained my ankle again, I ended up leaving my phone at the B&B in Great Yarmouth where we went on our lil hols grrrrrr.

I have eventually got my phone back, lost a few pounds during the food poisoning and had a lovely week away courtesy of my old man lol, so all in all turned out nice again in the end hehehe
I have used a freebie stamp set from Cardmaking and papercraft magazine, stamped with Memento ink and coloured with my prisma pencils as the image was a bit too fiddly for my promarkers/copics.

Ladies an Gents we also have a DT call over at  SCS so if you fancy joining a great bunch of ladies for fun n mischief, pop your details and link on the right hand side of the challenge blog.
