Digital Tuesday DT card and CDM DT a day late!

Good morning, I hope the weather is getting a bit warmer wherever you are. The snows has thawed a bit here and everywhere is covered in ice, but it's forecast for more snow today so looks like I will still have to keep the thermal knickers on lol (I am just kidding, I don't really wear them lol, only because I don't have any pmsl).
I was -12 c the other night!! and it's went up to 4 today so at least it's not so cold but I still hate it!

Right before I get those thermal knickers in a twist over the weather, here's my DT card for Digital Tuesday. The challenge this week has been set by the lovely Shelly (Jaspere) and she wants to see embossing on your card.
Our sponsor this week is our very own Ellie who is giving 3 digital images of the winners choice from her Digital Stamp Oasis store.

I did do quite a bit of embossing on this card but then I went and hid it all lol.
The papers are K&Co and I embossed the scalloped circle with the cuttlebug swiss dots folder and the 2 squares and the border strip are both embossed with ......em can't remember the name?? a flowery cuttlebug folder, but I hid most of the strip with the squares and then hid the squares with all my flowers! I'm sure you can see that I did emboss though??
I started by following the sketch at Moving Along With The Times, but I kind of got a bit carried away and added some bits that aren't in the sketch, like the border strip lol.
The also have a theme of LOVE, so I did managed to stick to that lol. I don't think this will qualify for the challenge, but I will link it anyway since I followed the sketch first then added to it.
The cute image of course is a Cute Daisy May and the flowers aer a mix from Tabby Crafts, Hobby craft and little roses I think were from the Works. Some of them are sprayed with glimmer mist. The 2 little pink branch punches I think are from the MS branch punch but I actually got them from a bloggy friend and she also gave me the punched border, which I love by the way and really want that punch!

Now my second card is yesterdays Cute Daisy May DT card. I don't know why, but I just totally forgot to post it here yesterday.
So here it is a day late *blush* sorry Linnie! The theme is ribbons and flowers, just my kind of challenge :)

I have some of Linnie's newest images which I was going to use for this one, but my ink ran out as I was printing them so I had to go hunt for one I had already printed and I found this one which I had already coloured, so had to go look for papers to match and just couldn't find anything. Pink is one of my fave colours, but as I found out when I made this card, I don't have that much pink papers (probably because I went through a pink phase and used them al!), so I will have to sort that out by going shopping :)
I eventually came across the pink paper by DCWV and it was quite a good match to the pink in the image but i only had a small piece of it, so used that for the two strips and some green paper from the same pad. They do look a lot brighter here than irl though.
I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday for this one, but kind of tweaked it a bit to fit in with what materials I had as the ribbon was a bit of a problem too. It seems that I have also ran out of pink ribbon as well (I know who has went off with that though!! Rhianna was looking very suspicious lol).
I wanted to use some proper ribbon instead of lace because the challenge was to use ribbon (although I think lace would count?), so I added a little bow as well.
The flowers are a mix from my stash, Tabby Crafts and Primas.
The flowers are a mix of one from my stash, Primas and Tabby Crafts.
I used my Fiskars sacalloped border punch on the two strips and the mat which Daisy is on was one from a kit.

Right I'm off to catch up with some DT commenting. I have loads to do!!
Oh just a reminder that you still have loads of time to enter By The Cute and Girly challenge.
Remember you can enter with any craft you like, from paper crafting to knitting , or you could even cook a tasty dish :) As long as it fits the challenge theme which is "NEW", so new baby, new home, wedding, engagement, new car.......new anything, you get the picture.
I know there's a lot of challenges out there just now with the new theme as well, so why not combine them? Of course there is some fab prizes to be one and you can enter as much times as you like throughout the month as long as each entry is a different craft, for example, you could enter with a card, then a Lay out, then jewelry, then bake something etc etc. So really you could potentially enter loads of times and have a better chance of winning :)
And if you haven't checked out the blog already, you should pop over and see what the design team have made, there is loads of eye candy there!

Right I promise I am going to stop talking now lol.
Thanks for stopping today.

Hugs Lora x

Thanks for playing along with the MAWTT challenge Lora, I love the embellishments you've added to the sketch. As for doing all the embossing then covering most of it up, that made me laugh - it's just the sort of thing that I do!

Nicki, :0)
