So what did I make for this challenge 

I just love this little boy that the wonderful Mo from digitalpenciltoo has. My nephews friends little brother is reaching this mile stone of ONE very soon and thought it would be perfect for him.
Image coloured with promarkers and kept it very CAS with just the addition of a touch of ribbon and some brown pearls. The sentiment has been computer generated. I matted the image with card matching the colours in the image 
Well I guess thats my card hope you like and it is now over to you.

Christmas Time At Craft

Good evening well nearly weekend and today being Thursday means time for a new challenge at CRAFT. Yes it is that time of the month when we celebrate CHRISTMAS. This time we would like to see Traditional Christmas
Sponsors for this challenge are
So onto my card which I have used a image from DRS DESIGNS called 'Triple Tree with Snow'
and a slightly different angle hopefully showing all the glitter and texture 

I have used the stamp 3 times resizing 2 of them and layering them. I have used my distressed inks to create a scene and added lots of glitter and fluffy stuff for the snow. Silver ribbon, Silver and navy card to mat the image in a CAS style. Although this isnt Green and Red I always consider trees and snow as traditional cards
Well thats my card for your inspiration and my Christmas Box is starting to look good so hopefully this is a good start toward this years list.
Would love you to join us in the challenge. Leave a quick comment to let me know you visited and let me know if you like my card. I appreciate all the comments people leave.
Thanks for popping by I will be back tomorrow with another DT card

A Floral Decoupage for Craft

With decoupage we mean the 3D decoupage to fashion 3D images on your projects
Our sponsors for this challenge are

details of prizes and our rules can be found on the challenge blog
So now onto my card using a old stamp i had in my stash from when I first started crafting

and a side view showing the layers

I stamped the image 4 times 3 on white and 1 on the pink. I coloured the rose with my promarkers.
I cut the image reducing the amount i left with just the head and flowers being the top layer.
The Dp is a dovecrafts paper from a pad called fairytale. Some satin ribbon the finish. The layer embossed has been embossed with lace folder and then lightly coloured with distressed ink to tie into the base layer on the image.
Well hope you like and hope to see you join us in our challenge. Decoupage can be done with purchased format or by stamping and doing your own as I have.
