MTTC Challenge # 174 - Circle Circus

The new challenge on My Time To Craft for the next 2 weeks is Circle Circus.  For my DT work I cut some circle mats with Nesties, stamped a Hero Arts owl and coloured him with Promarkers, punched a Martha Stewart border and added Card Candy and Liquid Pearl blobs!  I can't remember who the bp is by though!

MTTC Challenge #173 - Bring on the Cake

We had a great response to our previous challenge, and our new theme for the next 2 weeks on My Time To Craft is Bring on the Cake.  For my DT work I made what I think is called a Twisted Double Easel card - I don't usually do these type of cards!  It was for my daughter's birthday as she loves cupcakes and I wanted to try out my new Cricut cartridge!  As usual rubbish light for taking the photo!

We have gone through yet another round of the alphabet and are back to the beginning again today with a new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge blog.  The theme is A for Animal Antics, and for my DT work I made a LO of our 3 dogs in the snow we had last weekend.  I was pleased to use up lots of bits from old stash for this!

RRC Challenge #21 - Flowers with a bit of Sparkle

The new theme on Ruby's Rainbow Challenge is  Flowers with a bit of Sparkle and is open for the next 2 weeks.  For my DT work I felt like making a simple card so used a Penny Black Stickeroo matted onto some DCWV glitter card.  I added Stickles to the flowers on the image and there are flowers on the Daisy and Dandelion bp.
