A lot of DT stuff!

As the title says, I have a lot of DT stuff to show today. The new challenge is up today over at By The Cute and Girly and the theme this month is Indian Summer.
You can interpret that however you like and the dt girls have some great samples to show you over at the challenge blog for inspiration.
For my first make I chose to just use the colours and made a card.

 The image is one I got in a rak so I am not actualy sure who makes the stamp. It is embossed with black ep and I coloured it with Promarkers.
The papers are Craftwork Cards and were freebies in a magazine!
The ribbon is from my stash and the sunflower is from Unfortunately thir embelishments are all discontinued but they a still have all the great stamps and loads of goodies for those who love needlework along with lots more for your crafting addiction!

My next project is a little pillow box, well actualy it's not quite so little, it is actually quite big.

I went with the colours again for this and used a piece of paper that I got from one of my dt's girls at BTC&G (thanks hun xx).
The image I have used is from Whimsy Stamps who are one of our sponsors this month and very kindly gave the design team some of their images to play with. This one is called Maya blowing bubbles and I think she is so cute. I coloured her with Promarkers and this is the first time I have ever attempted to colour darker skin so I'm not sure how well I did but I think it looks ok?
Then I finished it off with another sunflower from Janlynn and some gems from my stash.

My next DT project is for  the Digital Tuesday challenge where the challenge is to make a gift set.
I should of posted this yesterday, but I thought that the colours I have used tied in with the theme at By The Cute and Girly so thought I would post it all together today.

I managed to combine 3 DT projects in one here! The image is from Dewdrop Craftz and I coloured again with Promarkers. There are quite a few of these bees over at Dewrop Craftz and they are all as cute as each other but I had this one printed and already coloured so thought I would make use of it.
The papers are Heidi Grace, I used my Fiskars border punch on the strip in the middle which is the paper that is on the reverse of the sheet I used for the rest of the card.
The flowers I made using the Paper Roses and Leaves Template set from Fred She Said.
I reduced the size of the flower to 3 different sizes, then printed them out onto normal white copy paper then coloured them with a Promarker, scrunched them up then opened them and cut down each petal then layered them and added a sticky back gem to the middle.
Have I told you before that I l;ove this flower set?? Ok yes I know I say that every time I use it lol, but it really is my favourite flower set from FSS because there is so much you can do with it.

A close up of the top of the box just so you can see the pwretty flowers :)
I used the same paper on the box and the leaves are from the same FSS set, again printed on white copy paper and coloured with a Promarker.

Right that's me done for now, 4 DT's in one post, I really am doing well at multi tasking!! lol
I hope you will join in with the BTC&G challenge this month. As always we have some fab prizes up for grabs and 2 guest dt spots too.
And if you have time this week I would love to see your entries at Digital Tuesday too. Why not combine the two and have a chance to win in both challenges? :)

Thanks for stopping by

Как говорилось на Всем привет, собираюсь 15 сентября в Тайланд. Все пугают что не сезон ( у них в это время считается сезон дождей ) . Кто был в Сентябре в Тайланде , расскажите – все так дурно или же наоборот все супер.
