It’s still Christmas at Lacy Sunshine!

This is my second DT card for the challenge at Lacy Sunshine where the theme is ‘Anything Goes’ (using a hand coloured image). If you use a Lacy Sunshine image you will be eligible for the draw and the random winner will receive a fab $30 voucher to spend at Lacy Sunshine Stamps. The Top 3 (using any image) will also get to choose 2 of Heather’s lovely digis. There is also always a freebie available for each challenge if you’d like to use one in the challenge, just pop over to the challenge blog.
The DT have been given some more fantastic Christmas images to play with, seeing as my last card was non-contemporary colours, I’ve gone for the more traditional look with this one.

Take A break

Good morning everyone, I thought I'd sneek this card in as I have no DT card today. It's one I made for my sister-in-law's Birthday, it's got my favourite combination on it - a good book, chocolate and wine, yum!

CAS Butterfly

It’s Tuesday and I’m back to share another card with you made from products from the J & C Creations shop. This rather gorgeous Penny Black stamp is so pretty that I decided piling on the embellishments (as I’m wont to do!) would be unnecessary, the focus should be be the butterfly, don’t you agree? So I’ve left my card Clean & Simple and let the image do the talking! If you pop over to the shop there is a fantastic 25% off this stamp at the moment along with lots more bargains to be had.

Green Fingers

So, we are now half way through the year, when did that happen?! At least we are having some nice weather at last in my little corner of the UK, not sure how long it will last, I have given up watching the forecast, it’s more accurate to have a  guess! I’d just like to apologise for not getting around to everyone’s blogs recently, I know I keep saying it, but there really are not enough hours in the day and add that to an internet connection that is so slow some days I could cry! I did do a catch up last night, so hopefully I’m not in anyone’s bad books!
On to my DT card for July’s challenge at A Little Bit Crafty where this month the theme is ‘Die-ing For It’. What a fab theme, I’m sure you can all incorporate a die cut or 2 into your cards and there are some fantastic prizes as usual, Paula really does work hard to get such brilliant sponsors.

Saturated Canary are offering 3 digis of the winner's choice

Smeared Ink are offering a £15 voucher

Cheery Lynn are offering a $20 voucher

So, fantastic prizes, get yourselves over to the ALBC blog for some lovely inspiration from the DT.
The lucky DT had the choice of any Saturated Canary digi to work with this month, oh my, what a hard decision! I ended up with Maxine, she’s a bit different from a lot of Krista’s gorgeous images, but I love her ‘big’ hair and thought the gardening theme would make a perfect card to sell in our garden centre.
