DT Card For Sentimental Sundays and GD For Creative Inspirations


A late DT Sentimental Sundays post and also combining with being a Guest Designer for Creative Inspirations. Have to do both together because really behind with my cards …. but oh so not my fault …. what did we do before we had the telephone and internet because I didn’t realise how much I used both until they weren’t there, three days without.

Had lots of the fluffy white stuff on Saturday and also thunder and lightning …. yep that’s what I said thunder and lightning. I would love to know if anyone else has seen this before because it sure looked spooky to me …. and to cap it all I had just seen the film 2012!!!!!

Back to the challenge at Sentimental Sundays it’s a recipe this week and we would like to see your creations with 3 designer papers, 3 buttons and some ribbon. There is also the freebie sentiments for you to collect and they are from Jeanet this week. The prize, if you win, is four individual sentiment sets from Raindrop Echo Designs Whimpsy Stamps Digital Collection and also a custom watermark/Signature set from the Custom Designs at Whimpsy Stamps. Check out all the creations this week from the other DT girls because stunning is an understatement.

The beautiful image on my card is called Sapphire Holly Fairy and she is an adorable digi stamp bought from Make It Crafty don’t you just love those wings, used lots of glitter on them but for some reason not showing very well. Coloured with water colours and used lots of liquid pearls and fluffy stuff for her dress. Papers are Basic Grey, Eskimo Kisses and the delightful sentiments from Raindrop Echo Designs, ribbon and snowflake buttons from stash.


I am very lucky to be a Guest Designer this week at Creative Inspirations and the challenge is …. Christmas Gifts …. here are the sponsors …. Fantastic Ribbons and Papercupcakes.

Corry chose the theme this week and I can see why, with only a few more weeks to go until the big event what better way to get everyone in the mood than with a gift.

Isn’t he the cutest Polar Bear, couldn’t resist using him for my gift, stamped, embossed then cut him out and placed onto a nestie mat. Added marshmallows to the cellophane bag and added the naughty but nice sentiment.

Entering for:
Karber Weekly Challenge – Sparkle (using a digi)
The Pink Elephant Challenge – Blue, Green and Red are the colours they want to see
Woodware USA Clear Stamps – Anything Goes
Basic Grey Challenge – A Recipe – 4 different types of embellishments, 3 different patterned papers, 1 – 2 images/1 – 2 sentiments

    I so know what you mean about being without internet! What a trial it was for me last night! Most of the East Coast was hit with a server problem for Comcast users and I was flabbergasted. Really? I mean what did I ever do before the internet? Amazing. Anywho, your card and polar bear treat bag are fabulous! 🙂 Amy
