I've added a number 1 on the nursery rhyme book for a first birthday.The beige backing paper has the alphabet all over it. I've added some ribbon and gems from stash, but kept it all fairly simple. The rest of the DT have come up with some fabulous cards to inspire you.Our Sponsor for this sketch is the fabulous store: My Favorite Things with a $15 gift voucher as the prize.

It's also Freebie Friday, and we have such a cute image for you this week - Envelope Pippin. Just pop along to our SNR or PCP group to grab him before he goes into the store.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Come back tomorrow to see the whole card, and find out about the next challenge at Delightful Sketches.

Thanks for the well wishes about my tooth incident. It's feeling a little better today although still painful and swollen, but I've finished the antibiotics now, so just hoping the infection doesn't flare up again. This has just made me even worse about visiting the dentist. It was bad enough this time, I was shaking from head to toe before she even started doing anything!

I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 5 for November

It's time for our November Challenge, Sketch #5 at I ♥ ProMarkers. We have a fabulous sketch by Sharon to follow, and a wonderful prize of another bespoke collection of ProMarkers and pad from Letraset.
For my card I've used Peachy Tilda with the matching Peaches and Peachy Dots papers, all from Tracy at Dies to Die For. I've coloured Tilda with soft peach and peach, pastel green, soft green, cocoa, caramel, tan, almond, blush and sunkissed pink. She's layered on green and orange/peach oval mats. All papers have also been layered on same cs. Added a chipboard sentiment and some beads all on white 6 x 6" DCWV Jewel cs. Please take a look at the stunning cards from the rest of the DT.
Could all entries be in for 30th November, the finalist will be announced 1st December and the winner and new challenge will be posted on the 2nd December.

I will be back later with some news of a digi party, as well as our Friday Freebie (a real cutie this week) from Digital Delights.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge No.24

Time for a new Challenge at C.R.A.F.T. and "Bonfire Night" seems appropriate - but we have been kind and added the options of fireworks and Celebration (which could really cover just about everything!)
This weeks winner will recieve a fab selection of quality die-cuts from Susie of Die Cut Dreams. Pop by her shop - she has lots of other crafting goodies aswell.
For my card I found a picture of fireworks on one of those colouring in sites (by Elizabeth Dulemba). I've coloured the image, added glossy accents and some gold glitter. Round the outside is black soot distress ink. The background is a mixture of pearly pens and starburst stains, all stamped over the top and mounted on a black 6 x 6" card.
This was way out of my comfort zone, but you can just make a celebration card. My card actually looks quite nice in real life with all the shine and glitter, but none of this comes across in the picture I'm afraid.
Please enter new work only by 8pm next Wednesday.

Sorry I'm so late with my posts today, I have a sick son at home, and I've just managed to settle him down.
