This card covers 4 challenges, havn't managed to combine for ages. I used the wonderful sketch over at Cupcake Crafts, Daring asked for our favorite things some of mine are on this card, Sugar Nellie stamp, glitter and gems, Creative Card Crew wanted snowflakes, Simon Says asked for all that sparkles, bit difficult to see in this photo but the gems and glitter really sparkle. I've also used K&Co papers , cuttlebug embossing, copics and a bit of lace.
MIL tomorrow so I wont be back until Friday, thought I might do a stew and dumplings for her as it feels like winters on its way.
Ohh I nearly forgot I won 9 Pollycraft images in their blog hop, they are brilliant. Will try and find time to play at the weekend.

Hi all, Dawn has done it again another fantastic sketch, it was a dream to use and one I shall use again and again. Here is the sketch #40 and the usual rules apply you can twist, flip or mirror it anything as long as we can still see the sketch. We are generously being sponsered by The Pixie Cottage please pop over to their site they have some amazing stamps and loads of inspiration on their blog from their super talented team.
This is my card for the sketch, thought I'd have a brake from Christmas cards, I've used a Lili of the valley stamp, coloured with my copics, matted with my nesties. I used K&Co papers and bazill basics, the top was punched with a Fiskars threading water border punch, used a ribbon slider with ribbon from stash , punched a flower with an EK and layered a couple of prima flowers on top, used a bead cap and crystal brad with a butterfly charm. I popped afew mini pink crystals around the centre image. Please pop over to ICS Challenge Blog and have a go , you never know you might be the lucky one to win a stamp.

This is a sugar nellie stamp coloured with me copics and a bit of glamour dust, papers are papermania, they are supposed to be Christmas but more than half of them have nothing Christmassy on them atall which is great as I can use them all year round. Cut out with my nestie and the snowflakes are cuttlebug dies on glitter card. I used the sketch on Create 4 fun it was a great one to use and i will definately be using it again.

It's our Wedding Anniversary on Thursday , we will have been married for thirtytwo years so were off to my favorite Italian for dinner,mmmmm
This is the card I've made my hubby,
I've used the Penny Black sketch this week as it fits my image a treat. I stamped the four litte hedgehogs in a row and coloured them with my copics, used bazill bling card and HOTP papers, embossed the circle with a cuttlebug folder and that was it, quite a quick card the longest bit for me is choosing which DP to use, I always forget what papers I have which is sometimes a good thing as I get a nice surprise when I find something I havn't seen for a while. lol. I really must start using some of my papers instead of just stroking them,lol, Should be back tomorrow all being well, take care.
Here is Dawns gorgeous sketch, remember you can flip,twist, mirror it anything really as long as the sketch is there somewhere.
We are generously being sponsored this week by Doodle Palace Store please pop over and see what they have its an amazing site.
I had never used a digi stamp before and I must say I was a bit nervous, I really didn't need to worry, it was so easy, just download the image, and this is the best bit, you choose what size you want the image to be, you can print off as many copies as you want.I printed 2 as I wanted to 3D the cake feet and head.
I chose this adorable dragon with icing all round her mouth.
I coloured her with my copics, glittered the icing on the cake and round the mouth, I used HOTP papers, little gems, the flowers are made with EK and crafts too punch's, mounting with nesties and bazill basics, a couple of charms, brads and bead caps to finish it off.
I must say I am really pleased with it and will certainly be getting some more of these digi's.
I hope you will all join in with the ICS challenge this week and take a look at all the amazing cards the other design team have made also using Doodle Palace digi's.

Hi there, hope you've had a good day, I had a nice surprise tonight, my brother lives in Belgium and he phoned for a chat and to tell me that he's going to visit in a few weeks, yippee, I only get to see him about six times a year so I have to make the most of his visits.
I love this stamp from sugar nellie, so cute, I coloured it with copics and glitter matted with nesties, punched with Martha Stewart, and cuttle bug, ribbon from stash, I made my own backing paper using white Bazill bling and stamped Debbi Moore snowflakes randomly with blue brillance, I also used pale blue bazill bling for matting and also for the snowflakes which I also glittered.
I used the great Sketch from Sunday sketch and stamp, also Stampavie wanted a Christmas card.
The DT cards on both of these challenges are totally amazing.
See you tomorrow for the new ICS challenge,

I am totally amazed at the wonderful entries to last weeks sketch,
Dawn has given us another fantastic sketch this week, we are also being sponsered by
Scapbooks N Stuff they are giving the winner one sheet of every paper from the Elliot Collection from Scrap within reach.
What a great prize wish I could enter.lol
Here is the card I made from the lovely sketch.
I used a set of stamps from the clear range of Inkadinkadoos, cut them out with my nesties and coloured with copics used Bazill basicsand DP from stash, used an EK border punch across the bottom.
When my boys were young we used to go away in our caravan for holidays, they loved it but I wasn't so keen, couldn't get used to condensing everything into a small space, same thing now I spread all my crafting stuff out all over the place.
I hope you'll all join in with us at ICS, I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Here is my take on the sketch. I've used HOTP papers, the stmp is from Card Fairy I cut the ovals on my cricut, coloured the image with my copics and added a bit of glamour dust on the negligee frill. I punched the edges with my EK and stuck mini gems on the scallops. Added a silver ribbon and setiment.
