Below is my dt card

I seem to have lost my sparkle so to speak but after a lot of digging around my craft room I came across some sparkly gems....perfect!

I have been rather guilty lately of neglecting my Sugar Nellies and it's been months and months since I last entered their challenge which does sadden me as there was a time I used to enter almost weekly.

I'm thinking the pictures are little on the dark side so if the sun comes out to play I'll retake them.

I have entered the following challenges....

Sugar Nellie- sketch
Fussy and Fancy- die cuts and punches
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop- to die for
Lexi's Creations- dies
Craft your passion- dies and punches

Thanks again for stopping by and taking time out to leave a comment, I really do enjoy reading them. Hope you all have a lovely weekend

Charisma Cardz Challenges- Shabby Chic

Morning all...are you looking for a super new challenge? Well as it happens your in luck. But before I get onto that I'd like to wish my dad a fabulous birthday....he's 60 today.

Now where were we,oh that's right, a super new challenge and it's over at Charisma.

This week it's Carlys turn to host and she has chosen the theme


If I'm honest I wasn't entirely sure what shabby chic was and it scared the living daylights out of me delving into the unknown. There's also that added pressure of being a dt member, I'm supposed to inspire you yet there was me nervously scouring blogland for inspiration, praying I could pull this style off. Did I succeed? I'm not entirely convinced but it sure was fun. So if your thinking this challenge isn't for you I say give it a go and you may surprise yourself perhaps even produce a project you might be proud of.

We have two amazing sponsors this week, prize details can be found here and not only that Zoe from bunny Zoe Crafts is very kindly giving anyone who enters our challenge this week

10% off their order

how amazing is that!

Please check out my dt card below

feeling inspired then join us here

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges

any questions please feel free to leave a comment.

enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.
