A couple of DT cards.

Life has been hectic this week and I haven't had no time to blog at all, but finally got a chance to settle down tonight and post some dt cards.

The first is for Charisma Cardz where the theme this week is "One for the girls".



 One of our sponsors this week is the Digistamp Boutique who kindly gave me an image to use. It's called "Princess Fifi" and I coloured her with Promarkers.
The papers are all from a magazine as is the sentiment and little butterflies.
The purple I have used to mat with is shimmery cardstock from my local craft shop, lace and pearls (which are actualy white!) are from my stash, flowers are made with a SU! punch and a random flower, spacer and pearl from my stash. And the swirls are done with an All Night Media punch that I have had for years.

My other card  is for Digital Tuesday where the challenge is "Let It Snow" and also my Fred She Said DT card.



The image is an older one from FSS called Catching Flakes, I used one of the precoloured ones, which are fab if you need to make a card in a hurry.
Again the papers and sentiment are from a magazine. I don't generaly like using the freebie papers you get inside magazines, but the ones you get in Creative Cardmaking are normaly quite good and not really think like a lot of other mags. This paper and sentiment came in really handy for  this card because I don't have much Christmas papers and the sentiment was perfect for the challenge.
The large snowflake was cut from white mountboard with an original Sizzix die and the small one were done with a Dovecraft punch, and I covered them all with twinklets.

If you haven't heard about the Fred She Said Black Friday sale, you just gotta get yourself over there!
There will be 25% off eveerything in the store! It will run for 24hrs starting today Friday 26th at 12.01am EST.Tracey has some great new images and of course the older ones are great too! If your not into cute characters like me, then how about some of the fab FSS flowers? Or if you like your decoupage, you got to have a look at the medalions, they are perfect for Christmas card!

Thanks for stopping by
