hi everyone,
well realising the deadline was today i thought i best get a card made for the challenge over on  i had seen this digi on a few days ago, and thought it would be perfect...
i made some leaves from old book pages, coloured and embossed with ultra thick powder, i coloured the image with pro markers, cut out , made extra little leaves and layered on the lovely backing paper i got from a mcs disk... i hope i get it in on time LOL but if not i had fun :)

the leaves dont show very well in the pic, so i took one of a few extras to show you xx

hi everyone
today i have a DT card for DCC &Friends  challenger #2 over on, it has a lovely theme of  faeries, mystic and magic.

here is my offering

i used a beautiful image from a MCS disk, and seeing her sitting there on her swing? gave me the idea of making a window hanger, i used the inner from a used up double sided tape, printed her on acetate, glittered her, filled the ring with glitter, made some hanging beading, and a ribbon to hang it with, when you shake it the glitter sticks to the acetate inside and gives a wonderful effect, and of course we have recycled the tape ring :)

and dont forget guys check out the on wednesday for the winner of challenge #1

hugs xx
