Challenges and Some News

Happy Wednesday

Today there are some new challenges on the block, and I would like to share some cards with you. Firstly DS4J have a new challenge:

CHALLENGE #60 - Romance is in the Air

Oooooh ... it's February and a special month for all those who want to spoil their loved ones!
Our theme is therefore 
You can include anything that has to do with 'romance' - hearts, the word LOVE, the colour red etc.
Challenge #60 runs from 6 - 19 February 2013

Please pop over and see the lovely creations by the Design Team

My card uses the image Vase of Hearts:

The image has been coloured with Copic markers and is placed on a Spellbinders die cut called Romantic Rectacles, I masked this up with sticky notes after cutting and stamped with an old background stamp from my stash. The corners and little heart boarder are both Martha Stewart punches.

The second challenge today is with Creative Moments and my cards use images from our lovely sponsors QKR Stampede and Fresh Brew Designs.

This time the theme is:

Buttons & Bows/Anything Goes

First up is an image from QKR called Best Friends:

The card is a pre cut blank from my local hobby shop and the paper is from my stash, the button and bows are die cuts, the buttons are Button Boarder by Memory Box and the Bows are Die-Namics Die Beautiful Bows. The image was coloured with Copic markers.

My second card for this challenge uses the image from Fresh Brewed called Fairy Sweet Day:

The Embossing folder is by Cuttlebug and the image is again coloured with Copic's, the embellishments are from my stash.

Ok now for my news!

I am very proud to announce that I have been chosen to be part of the wonderful Crafters Cafe Design Team. I look forward to sharing my creations for them very soon.
