R for Roses

This week we are up to R on the Alphabet Challenge and the theme is Roses.  I made a decoupaged card for my DT work, not something I usually do but the recipient likes decoupage!  The corner embellishments are cut with a Cuttlebug die.

The new challenge for this week on My Time To Craft is Handbags.  This DT card isn't really my usual style of cardmaking as it is using stickers but I didn't have anything handbag related in the way of stamps!

Drink it Up

This week on My Time To Craft there is an either/or challenge - Drink It Up and/or Let's Eat Cake (due to a malfunction with scheduled posting last week!).  I have made my DT card using the lovely stamps from My Cute Stamp (available from here) called Tea Party, coloured in with Copics and matted onto DCWV and Joanna Sheen bps.

And finally, Z for Zebra!

We have reached the end of our alphabet challenge on InchybyInch, and this week I have made Z for Zebra, using part of a small zebra stamp I luckily had and Bundled Sage Distress Ink.  I can't wait to see what Fiona has in store for us in September when we start something new!
