The ribbon is from Stash and the sentiment is made on the computer.
The border was made using a Martha Stewart Punch - Aspen snowflake.

Stars in Your Eyes

Hi peeps, welcome to another Thursday morning. I hope the world is treating you well.

The new challenge over at Craft Challenge  this week is 

Stars in Your Eyes.

Our two lovely sponsors this week are

As soon as I saw Xmas Bratz Girl Candy Cane, I just knew I had to use her. She reminds me so much of my niece.  So here is her Chrismas card with a difference.  I made a sort of Christmas dream catcher for her to hang in her bedroom.

Here is a close up of the main star and image.

The main star is made from a template included in the Do Crafts Digital Designer Program which is part of my  Tatty Teddy CD. It's a bit fiddly to get the inside star going inwards when you do the first one but after that it gets easier.
The papers are from the Nitwit collection Comfort and Joy
The ribbon and gems are from stash
Brats girl is coloured with promarkers.

Hope you like her. Remember to pop over to the rest of the D.T. blogs.
I would like to enter this project into the following challenges
Incy Wincy designs - tic, tac, toe red, Christmas Sentiment and ribbon
Digital Tuesday - Christmas Time
Shelly's images - Anything goes
2 sisters anything goes
Paper Sundaes Digital images

Enjoy the challenge.

Good morning all, where does the time go? It's Thursday again and time for a new challenge over at CRAFT.

This week the theme is Cute and once again we have two sponsors
The Crafty Pad designs and 2 Cute Rubber Stamps

It was a difficult choice with so many lovely images but I had to choose this little chap from 2 Cute for my DT card, because he reminds me of one of my beautiful cats who eats absolutely anything including, ribbons, wild orchid blooms and crafting tools!

This card  is for dear Emma whose birthday is today. Happy birthday hun x

The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs - Delicious Delights
Ribbon and gems  from stash
Swirl cut using Marianne Creatable die
The border is made using a Martha Stewart Punch around the page punch which I have just mastered and which I will be using a lot more. It just adds that touch of luxury I think.

Hope you like my card, please hop over to the rest of the D.T. blogs they have some stunning creations.

I am entering this card into the following Challenges
Charisma Cardz- Cutesy
My Mum's Craft Shop

Family Games / Board games or Activities

Morning everyone, I trust you are all in good health.
Today is Thursday and time for another challenge over at CRAFT challenge.
This week we are sponsored by:-

Bows and Berries and Die Cut Dreams

The Theme is Family Games / Board games or Activities                                    
I have chosen to make a scalloped Easel card for my D.T. card using one of the Bows and Berries stamps.
I like the simplicity of the pin cushion stamp - ( which my husband said could be converted into a powder puff and bowl, not like Ian to be creative!). It would also make a nice cream jar. Because the stamp is so simple it means you can go to town with bows and flowers, which as you can see I have.
The delicious paper is from the Bearly Mine Vintage collection - I adore these papers.
Swirls and border are cut using Marianne Creatable dies.
Ribbon is from stash
Roses and rose buds are from Wild Orchids
Other blooms from 'The Works'.

Have fun with this challenge - looking forward to seeing your entries.
Don't forget to visit the other D.T. members blogs.
