White on White

Over at Sassy Cheryl's challenge blog this week the lovely Judy has challenged us to do a card "white on white". Now I must admit, even was a bit daunted by this challenge, and it really did challenge me, but I am pleased by how my card turned out!.
I used "winter" image, dusted off the cuttlebug, distressed and used a snowflake punch!
Head over and see the fantastic cards the rest of the talented DT has come up with.. I cant wait to see the entries this week!

Whimsy Haven

Two post in one day!!! and I think there may be one more to come later tonight! I recently stumbled onto Lindsay Spencer's blog who is "Whimsy Haven" digital stamps. This is one of her designs that took my eye. I really take a liking to these sort of images and is along the same line as the button flowers by Sassy Cheryl's a few posts down. So different from the normal boring flowers...

Paper Jewels Challenge

Have cleaned kitchen, attacked Cameron's room (yuk, how grotty can a 10yr old be??) and have rewarded myself by making a few cards. First one I'm going to show you is a challenge card I am entering over at Paper Jewels challenge which calls for buttons and sewing. This is another image in my stash that I have neglected... it was a RAK from bloggy friend Jill.
If you like these images, Jenny over at Paper Jewels also sells them!

Meljen challenge #1

I had some time in between my DT cards to join in the very first challenge for Meljen. I must admit... it was very hard to pick just one image to go with! The theme for this week was "anything goes".
Well I have my Pink Floyd rocking in the background.. which always gets me in the mood for card making... so must go and give my copics some love!!!
Edited Oh - and forgot the answer to last post.. the little gardener is digging up dirt... so really in hindsight I should have had her sitting on GREEN grass instead of grey concrete... (she must have a strong trowl to get through the concrete!!!)
