OMG how long has it taken me to get into blogger to post my DT card this week Grrrrrrrrrrr.
This weeks challenge over at SCSC has been set by Meeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Happy New Year or Celebration creations
We're looking for New Years cards, any late birthday or special celebration cards for todays challenge.
I went with a lovely Mo Manning Image Tean Fairy Mia for my bezzy mates birthday. Found some Crate paper bought a couple of years ago that I couldnt seem to cut into that fit perfectly. I took the plunge and got me scissors out and with a deep breath squeezed the scissors together (phew not as bad as I thought hehehe)
I decided to make the card into an easel and cut the swirls and leaves out in white paper and coloured with me copics to match the image n paper. I set me cutter chomping away at the flower shapes and sentiment shape. Coloured the flowers with promarkers, soaked them with cosmic shimmer dust mixed with water and scrunched them to death lol
I shaped then while they were wet. After they had dried I applied stickles for extra shimmer. I didnt have the right shade of blue card for the base of the easel so googled the crate paper image, grabbed the blue and printed off a sheet with the blue, sprayed stick n stay all over it then sprinkled Glamour dust all over it. Finished off with a lick of spray and sparkle to seal the glitter and fill in any missing glitter and voila, custom made matching glitter card.
A bit more stickles and ribbon finished it off ready in time for delivery hurrrrah
Hope to see your all for our last challenge before xmas

Well another week has gone by and isnt it cold brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
This weeks challenge has been set by the lovely Linda and is ...
All Creatures Great n Small (including Aliens)
As it has been soooo cold the last few days I though it appropriate to give ol Rudolf an Airing to get him ready for the snow that will soon be here (woooo hoooo)
I used Pink Petticoat papers and images this week and added some Bazzil Bling, glitter, flowersoft (for the snowballs) and some ribbon. A fast and simple card of which I may be making more in different colours. I coloured Rudolf in with Prisma pencils and his scarf with Copics. Glittered and glazed his nose for added sparkle. I cut the scalloped mat on my klic n kut to save me trying to cut out out by hand.
I am off now for a warm in front of our new ceramic heater. It has a lovely bright glow and is great to snuggle up by.
Pop on over to the other ladiezzz blogs and share the love.
See u all next week (if you haven't been swallowed up by the crowds christmas shopping)

This weeks challenge has been set by our lovely Kate and she has given you a photo as inspiration for your card this week ....
I have chosen the colours of red and green for my card and the golden glitter sparkle for my snowflake and the bell at the end of his hat. The image is from Make It Crafty and he is called Floppy hehehe. I used my Copics and Promarkers again to colour him in.
I found the paper on my external hard drive and have no idea where it has come from but the date on the file was 2008 (I really should organise it a bit better lol). The background of the image looked a little harsh against the rest of the card so I ended up masking Floppy and using some pale green chalk ink to shade the whiteness away> I thyink it also makes him stand out a bit more too.
Well guys, have a gander at the pikky and see what jumps out at you this week. I love seeing all the different interpretations you all come up with each week.
Have a great week and good luck with the dreaded Xmas shoppping hehehe. See you all next weekend.
