Baby It's Cold Outside

The new challenge is up at Digital Tuesday and the challenge theme this time is "Baby It's Cold Outside".
Whimsy Stamps is our sponsor and is giving the winner 5 of their digi stamps.
The design team were also given an image each from Whimsy Stamps to use on their samples this week and I chose a sweet image by Crissy called "Warm Winer Wishes".

The paper I have used is one I got last Christmas and had half a 12x12 sheet left but there's no writing on it to tell me who makes it, so I have no idea where it came from.
The ribbon is from a pack I bought at my local poundland and it is really lovely ribbon... you can't go wrong with 4 or 5 different lengths of ribbons for £1 !! lol
The sentiment, snowflakes and little hearts are all by Nitwits and I coloured the sweet image with Promarkers.

I also just realsied that my post that was scheduled on Thursday with my Charisma DT card didn't post, so showing that here today as well. I wish blogger was more reliable!!
There is a sketch with a twist at Charisma Cardz this week, and the twist is to use no image, instead the focal point should be a sentiment or verse!
Well that really was a challenge for me, because I always use images, but I gave it a go and this is what I came up with.

 The sentiment I used is from Raindrop Echo which I think was a freebie a while back but she has loads of great sentiments and word art available at Whimsy Stamps.
I used another freebie download for the scalloped circle which was in a set by Summer Driggs. If you haven't checked out this girls digi kits, you got to have a look! They are always fab and you get so much elements in them and she gives them away for free!!
The paper is Bo Bunny as is the ribbon and the flowers are cut with a SU! 5 petal punch from coffee coloured linen cardstock and some paper that I got free in a magazine a while ago and I added pearls from my stash and some tiny leaves punched with a really old cheapo punch that I got in a set when I first started making cards. I think you can buy them for about £1 now and they are normaly all rubbish, but this one has came in handy a few times,
I must apologise again for my rubbish pics, especially on this card as my scanner doesn't like when I use any embelishments and I went and added the pearls which are quite large.
I need a camera really badly now, it's driving me crazy not being able to take pics of any 3d stuff especially since I have made quite a lot for Christmas! Oh well maybe some of my family will take pity on me and buy me a new one for Christmas lol.

For those that have not entered my blog candy yet, why not have a peek at the post above this one and leave a comment :)
Oh and I forgot to mention that I have been moderating my comments this last week or so becuase I have been getting a huge ammount of spam lately, and it been quite rude stuff, so sorrry if it takes a while for me to publish your comments but I do read them all and will publish them as soon as I see them :)

Thanks for stopping by

These cards are both gorgeous Lora! Love how you colored the whimsy image, that is such a sweet image and I had a hard time decided on which one to use.
Love the papers you chose and the sentiment on the second card is so much fun!
I know what you mean about getting lots of spam comments, I did too and didn't even realize it. It's insane.
