2 DT cards

It's an exciting Monday for me as it's my first week of not going to the office (see previous post), my first DT card for Crafter’s Companion and I'm going to the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC on Thursday.

So onto that DT card. Sadly Bev has stepped down from the DT but she has left us with a great sketch and theme of one for the girls. I used papers, image and sentiment from the SWALK 2 collection. The gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid with punched MS fern leaves. I also used an MS border punch on the flowered paper. There's a fantastic prize on offer this month of a £30 voucher to spend at Crafter's Companion website so let's see those entries coming in. I am also entering my card into the challenge of Best Friends at Passion for Promarkers, Let's punch it at Creative Card Crew and Punch 'em at Simon Says.

My second DT card is for the fortnightly challenge of a Winter Bouquet at A Pocket full of Posies where you can win 4 digis from Meljen's Designs. I cut out the Wild Rose image and mounted him on a snowflake embossed die cut circle. Papers are Papermania Winter's Tale, Papermania striped ribbon, cherry blossom from Wild Orchid and Sizzix cute leaves. The MS zigzag punch came out too for this card. I am also entering this into the challenge of embossing at The Creative Cottage and a classic Christmas at Wild Orchid.

The weather here is lovely so I'm off out do some gardening this morning.
