I must apologise for mentioning the C word in May, but that is the challenge at Crafting By Designs this week - Get Ready For Christmas.. So get out your glitters and holly and join in!

Our sponsor this week is Fred She Said. I chose their digital image Winter Westie to make my card for the Design Team.

I die cut an aperture into the card before covering with a background paper. I coloured the digi image with Promarkers and again die cut it to fit in the aperture. The snowflakes are punched from white paper and decorated with glitter. I created the sentiment using Serif CraftArtist.

I look forward to seeing your Christmassy creations!

A Happy Little Stamper!

I am over the moon to be asked to be a Design Team member on the Happy Little Stampers Blog Challenge. This is a new challenge begins today to add to the already popular series of challenges.

The brief for this month is ANYTHING GOES with A DIE. So I have chosen this little card as my first card.

I used the Clearly Besotted Umbrella die and stamp set to create the card. It is such a sweet set! The scalloped circle die is a Spellbinders die. I paper pieced the umbrella by diecutting the shape from patterned paper and then overstamping onto it.

So pop on over to Anything Goes with A Die and meet the lovely new team!

I am entering my card into the following challenges :

Penny Black And More  - Anything Goes
A Beautiful Mess - Anything Goes

Crafting By Designs Design Team

Things have been busy here at Sparkly Towers the last few weeks. The first piece of news to share is that I am now a Design Team Member at the Crafting By Designs Blog!

There are four new design members and I am sure we are going to have lots of fun along with the existing team. This week the challenge is ANYTHING GOES, so come along and join in. This is the card I made for the challenge , using a digital stamp from Tiffany Doodles.

The base card is cut using my Cricut Explore. I coloured the image with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens before decoupaging it. The ribbon was added from my crafty stash.

Do come along and join in!

What can you find here?
