~Make it Sparkle- Kitty Teacup

 Hello everyone!  Gosh, my blog took a back seat there for a bit and after an eventful (not in a good way) December, I hope to have life back in order somewhat to keep up with things now.
 
I am delighted to share with you this adorable new image from Di's Digi Stamps so our new challenge today.  This time around we are asking you to show us your Make it Sparkle (glitter, stickles, bling).  I have used this super cute colored image called Kitty Teacup.  I am having a flare up of uveitis (inflammation in my eye) so it makes coloring really hard with one blurry eye-hence the colored version:-)  I used some silver shimmer trim from CTMH as well as Nuvo Glimmer paste in silver with this fun Krafty Kaleidoscope Stencil from Kraftin Kimmie. Topped it off with two glitter dots from Michaels.
 
 
I sure hope you will play along with us this time around.  Also, be sure to check out Di's store as she has some adorable new images and a great January sale going on right now!
 

Just a few reminders about out challenge:

Then we have sketch #239 and I have used this beautiful Bugaboo Butterfly Floral Panel.
 
 

 
Lastly but certainly not least, we have this fun sketch #240 and I have used Cute Witch from The Paper Shelter for this sketch.
 
 
Also, we have the optional theme for the month and we also have 3 different options for you- Halloween, Thank You and Autumn.  Feel free to use both the sketches and the theme or just the sketches, that is fine too!

~Fall/Autumn with Di's Digi's

Fall is here already???  Where did summer go? Just kidding, we have had a beautiful summer, hot but mixed with some desperately needed rain so that's ok.  Fall is actually just a lovely so far, so I can't complain.
 
It's time for a new challenge over at Di's Digis and this time around we are asking to see your Fall/Autumn creations!   Lucky for me, Di has just released some gorgeous new images that fit the bill perfectly!
This adorable lil guy is called Autumn Fox.  It's available in black and white and a coloured versions and I have used the coloured version here!  Matched my papers perfectly and I was short on time which seems to be the norm lately, so it worked wonderfully. 

As always, I sure hope you can check out the DT creations and then enter your card for a chance to win!  You don't have to use an image from Di's Digis but with the 50% off summer sale on now, why not!

Hope to see your card entered over on the challenge blog!

Happy Crafting!

~Wendy's Rose and Fold It Fancy with Di's Digi's

Time for a new challenge over at Di's Digis!!  I love Fold It Fancy challenges because I never seem to have any on hand so it's a great time to be crafty! 

I have used this super cute image called Wendy's Rose for my card and paired it with some gorgeous CTMH papers.  I would have to say, I think this is my favorite color combo right now for sure!




So I am not sure what this fold is called but I found it right here on Secrets to Stamping with Debbie and had to give it a whirl!

  Di's store is 35% off right now so be sure to check out all the great images she has available.  Lots of new ones, lots of sale ones and a ton of plain terrific ones!
