Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sunday 4 November 2012


Good morning to you all, can you believe we are now into November, where has this year gone. 
I don't remember having much of a summer and the nights are drawing in, now we have changed the clocks.
Time again for another challenge over at CD SUNDAY and we have something 'topical' for the time of year.
Thanks for all you stunning entries in our 'Beautiful Blue' challenge. I will be choosing my TOP 3 in the next few days so remember to check our blog to see if you are a winner.
As it is the first Sunday of the month, not only do we have a new Sponsor but also a new Guest Designer.

Our Sponsor for this week is 'DREAMEES' - which is owned by Carol & Hayley, who are  Mother and Daughter. They gave all of us some files to work with and they chose the theme of the challenge, which is
'CHRISTMAS IN PINK'  One lucky person will be able to choose one of their CD's to the value of £9.99

Our new Guest Designer for this month is the lovely 'PAULINE' - who you may know as 'Cotnob'
Pauline has been joining in our challenges for quite a while and the team like her work so we were pleased when she agreed to join us. Welcome Pauline, I hope you will enjoy your time with us.

My Recipe for my DT Card is shown below

6 x 6 Scalloped Card Blank - although you can't see it as my photo has taken well.
I used 2 different Backing Papers from the files we were sent. I cut one of the papers down and used the edges to give you a swirl effect.
The snowflake paper is also from the files.
 I took this into Craft Artist 2 and added the lovely embellishments from the files using different features CAP2 has.
My tree, sentiment and sledge have been decoupaged and a shadow added to give them depth.

I hope you will join us again this week, just remember to use something from a CD and say which CD you have used.

Do pop over to our Blog to see the rest of my 'Teamies' designs.

I would also like to enter my card into my friend Ann's blog challenge which ends on Friday 8th November
It is called 'Christmas In October'

I think I need some CAP lessons - great use of all those effects. Love the swirly paper at the sides - it sorts of glows (unless my eyes haven't recovered from the weekend.lol)
