Rainbow Lady's Challenge - Trees and Baubles

What an eventful week I've had, on Sunday my pc died, it was quite old and had had a hard life but it was so sad to see it go. I have been saving for such an event so happily I could afford to go out and buy a new one so was only without for a few days. The only thing is all my favourites and contacts and lots of other things are still stuck in the old one, I do hope my friends lovely hubby can manage to get something sorted for me so I can retrieve the things I need.
Anyway on to this week over on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog, she has asked us to do Trees and Baubles and I decided to use a LOTV image as they are so cute and most of my friends and family are into cuteso this kind of card goes down really well.
The backing paper is from a Polka doodles cd and the the stamped sentiment is also a LOTV embossed with WOW powders.

Hope to see you over on the challenge blog so we can visit and see what you've been up to.

CD Sunday - Things with Whiskers

Good morning all, it's Sunday so another challenge from us over at CD Sunday and this week we are looking at Things with Whiskers.  This being the first Sunday of the month we are once again doing a sponsored challenge and this time we are running the challenge for two weeks so plenty of time to get your brains working and add something to the challenge.  I know some people are still doing Christmas cards and there are so many with mice and rabbits that I'm sure you could come up with something, in fact Santa himself has whiskers, lol.

My card didn't start out as a valentine's card but it sort of evolved into one, I have used an image from Lili of the Valley and the backing paper is from the Faye Whittaker collection from Joanna Sheen. I have used the fleur de lis  die from spellbinders but it wasn't large enough to do what I wanted so I cut out two one white and one red and cut them into four. I then fastened them to the back of the topper so it looks like the are just layered on top of each other. I then cut the corners from the same die set and put some gems on them. Once I'd done all that it looked like a good card for valentines day so I stamped the greeting and used the WOW embossing powders which I'm loving and it was complete.

We are giving away the fab Rachelle Anne Miller cd for this challenge and although the team got a cd each from the very generous Jo they arrived a little late for some of us so we will be showing you some more of the designs on the cd on the challenge blog next week but if you would lilke to see a few things I've done previously you will find them here

Hope to see you over at CD Sunday with some fab projects for us, see you there!
