A great challenge happening over at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog, with the theme being "Party", some wonderful creations by all the lovely DT Members.  We are sponsored by The Cutting Cafe, I chose Wine Bottle Shaped Card.
Prize ~ 3 sets from their store

Well what do I do, for Party using Wine Bottle Shaped Card, took me ages to think of something as I suppose it's out of my comfort too.  But in saying that was really happy (or I should say surprised) how it turned out.  I used all leftovers for my DP's, cardstock.  I embellished with flowers, bling & ribbon as well as using Cheery Lyn Flourish Die.   My wine label came from The Blissful Bee such an inspirational blog, I wish to thank Amy for sharing such a freebie, of course now a follower by email.  So lets get to and Party over at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog, I hope you enjoy viewing my card.

~ Sponsor ~ 
Prize ~ $20 gift certificate to spend in store

Great theme for this weeks challenge, I decided on following "Silver" for mine, I wonder what the other Design Team Members chose, drop on over at  Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and see what inspirational creations they have in created for you, and join in the fun.
This time I made a square card using designer paper from Bearly-Mine Designs.  My framed dies are from Memory Box Dies which I purchased from Lacy Sunshine Craft Emporium, some time ago.  Once I placed my framed image onto the DP, I then added some ribbon, rhinestones, snowflakes and sentiment.  I really loved how the silver cardstock I used compliments from my daughter (big hugs) to create the frame to encase the image. Because my Mum really loves blue, and this image has a dog, this will be her special Christmas Card.

It's all about Ants . . .

This afternoon I made a card around Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #41, so love these quirky ants.   I used Papermania designer paper and cardstock to create a Joy Fold card, been so so long since I've made one of these, just mucking around doing something different.  I love these fun digis too, and I used a precoloured one this time called "Sledding Ants", such playful animals.  I used sentiment from SU, ribbon, bell, flowers from stash.  I have also a pic showing you the inside of this card too.

Winter is for the birds . . .

Today I'm following the sketch over at i {heart} card sketch no.47 & December Stamp of the Month.  We got to chose from two lovely new digis and I picked "For The Birds".
I used designer paper from Bearly-Mine Designs, so love this christmas paper, which I used not so long ago, just love the ornaments and the shades of pink & blue.  I added pink ribbon, lace some rhinestones and a couple of flowers.  I coloured the image in with my copics, the only difference from the sketch was I had already printed out my image and cut out not realising I hadn't left enough room to do a circle , I hope this is acceptable.

Snowman wishes . . .

Well I thought I would make another christmas card today, and thinking who would love to receive it, made with heaps of love as always.  I was inspired by Meljen's Design Team Challenge Blog this week with the theme being "Holly Berries", meaning use red & green on my card.  I went through my digis and decided on "Christmas Star Snowman", which is available through Meljen's Design Digis.  So I used cardstock as my main feature of the card, added some leftover designer paper.  I coloured in "Christmas Star Snowman with copics added some glitter to hat and snow on the ground as well as glossy accent to the star.  I don't own a corner punch so I cut it by hand , added a few red rhinestones, ribbon & twine.  I then needed a sentiment and really love the cute tag I made which is from  Meljen's Design Digis too called "Christmas Tag", also Merry Christmas came from SU.

Across the Miles

Hi everyone, such a lovely morning here in Australia, and what better way than to relax and sit in my itty bitty room ; crafting with my purrballs & cup of coffee.
There's a great challenge over at Meljen's Design Team & Challenge Blog with the theme being "Giving Thanks".   I chose to do Thanks Giving even though we don't really celebrate here, I thought it would be really nice to wish everyone in blogland and my friends I've meet on the way from overseas a "Happy Thanks Giving", from me to you.

~ My Card ~

I sat for awhile (quite sometime) pondering on a layout, and this is what I came up with.  I used all scraps, jsut don't realise over time how much you accumulate in cardstock (Stampin' Up) & designer papers (Graphic 45).  My sentiment fits perfectly this belongs to a set from SU called Tags 4 You which I purchased as a bundle & this gave me the punch as well.  I embellished with pearls & ribbon.  The cardstock I decided on one side as shown, using a border punch (SU) and my cute image called "Autumn Flower Mouse", which is from Meljen's Design Digital Stamps, so in love with these cut little critters.  
Oh, and I'm trying out for a GDT member call spot too over at Meljen's Design Team & Challenge Blog, so exciting and wonderful to have the opportunity to give it a go.
