Use Something New

It's been quite some time since my last post as now both challenges that I am DT in are both fortnightly. Yes the challenge I ♥ Promarkers is no longer weekly from this year and we have also split up in two teams, so team 1 makes cards for the first week and team 2 makes cards for the second week. .. .. With this new setup I wonder if I'll be able to find some more time to make an extra card or two to post here, I'm sure I can :)   Anyway, so today it's time for me to post my DT card and the theme for this week  is

I'm sure you've all been buying new stuff, so this will be an easy challenge. As for me, I haven't been buying much crafty stuff lately, so it's just the image that is new and the background striped DP.
 To make up my card I used this fun image, My Racing Car,  from our sponsor for this week
The Paper Shelter, which of course I colored with my promarkers, using colors to match the lovely colorful car DP from my Eco Park Paper Pack.

The prize from our sponsor is $15 to spend in the store.

I really do hope you can join us, and don't forget you have one week left to enter the challenge.

I'll be entering some challenges when I get back from my fitness class which is due to start in 15 mins so I have to rush... luckily this one is near where I live but I still have to change he he

Big hugs.

Use Something New

Hello and a Happy New Year to all. Hope you had a good start and your 2016 will be a fantastic one. As for me, well I wasn't so well unfortunately, but after I spent two days in bed resting and taking pills and honey and lemon and all that stuff I was so much better by new year's eve and I  managed to go out for dinner with friends. We had booked quite some time ago and I didn't want to disappoint them! Anyway, that went well, and yesterday we had my FIL for lunch which was lovely, we were also invited over by my brother on Wednesday and tonight we are also invited at my brother in law for drinks and finger food. I'm really looking forward for next week, when hopefully everything will fall back into the normal routine and I start eating healthy again, and exercising, as even that took a back seat this week, and hope to get off the two kilos I gained!!!! 

Anyway, onto my DT card for today as this week it's time for a new challenge at 
Crafty Friends
The theme this week is

The new stuff that I'm using is the digi, Star Angel Sprite which I was lucky to have to make my card from one of our sponsors Aurora Wings. The prize is $15 worth of digis.

and I'm also using a a new die, the Merry Christmas sentiment, which, very lucky me, I had won sometime ago in a challenge here in blogland. It's from Wild Rose Studio and is actually one, but I cut it off in two.

 The image I colored it with my promarkers and added glitter to her dress and on the stars on her hair and on the star that she is holding and also all around the DP.

Our second sponsor for this challenge is Pretty Grafik Designs and they are offering a $20 gift voucher to the lucky winner.

Another Christmas Card

With Christmas just two days away, I thought I would post one last Christmas card that I did, not that I sent out any this year! Not even one, but we just didn't feel we should with our mum passing away last month. As for the decorations at home, we just put out the crib and baby Jesus and that was all.

Anyway, onto my card, which I should have posted last week btw.. but to tell you the truth I was struggling with the theme , and then I was so busy at the office that I just didn't manage it! So today I thought that it's better late than never... and so here it is!

The image that I used is Holy Night from The Paper Shelter.

I colored it with my promarkers and used three different DPs from two different paperpacks. Two are from a Dovecraft paperpack and the striped one was a freebie in a magazine. There's also two different ribbon, ponsietta die cuts and also a recycled sentiment from another card.

Some exciting news now as I was the lucky winner at the ABC Christmas Challenge and won a fabulous die from their sponsor Wild Rose Studio. yippeee :)

First time using it and it was a lovely gift from my dear friend Pam. I colored it with my promarkers and then made some clouds in the background with ink and a clouds die.
The gorgeous DP, three different ones in fact, are from two different paperpacks which were free in the Quick Cards and the Cardmaking & Papercraft magazines.
