Some to Share and a Challenge or two ...

Hi all..I hope this finds you well and not too cold...I've been a bit under the weather again this week...I cant seem to shake off this cold thing...anyway I have been crafting and have some to share...first up is ...surprize surprize...!! is a cute LOTV I've gone a bit moody with this one....

I wanted to give it a sophisticated look and kept it monochrome...but its covered with glamour dust its a shame it doesn't show up in the pic...the DP is Kaiser a pad that I picked up at the NEC..lovely papers...I coloured her with copics...used a LOTV sentiment and as the DP is quite busy I kept it simple with just a organza ribbon a sweet litte heart charm and some card candy...I'm going to enter this for this week LOTV Challenge Glamour and Glitz..I think it

Ok next I have a Tilda creation for Wild Orchid Challenge - Blue Christmas

I used a new Christmas Tilda..she is coloured with copics..the DP is TIM HOLTZ Shabby pad...these are just so gorg...MB was with me when I bought it and as I went into raptures as I flipped through the pages he gave me a look..I said to him..these are not for cutting they are for stroking...its a girl thing...I think he might have me committed I did cut it!! added the new gorgeous WO flowers and used loads of sparkle over them...finished with a sweet star charm ...a organza bow...gems and a Craftworks sentiment...

Now since I got my printer..a whole new world has opened up for I had a little hop around blogland and found Pink Petticote...and bought some of the lovely downloadable papers..and these cute little digi Christmas Penguins..

as you can see I made little SAC 3x3 cards using their papers..I coloured them with copics and added sparkle and gems here and get twelve in the set... I just love them and very pleased how they turned out..while making these I had an idea to make some cupcake ones too...

these are made with a Hero Art stamp set I have..papers are Pink Petticote again...I think they are ideal for when you need a birthday card quick..inside I have put 'Have a Yummy Birthday'..
Well I think that's enough for now!!!..I'll be back tomorrow with my DT card for Stampin' for the Weekend...
Take care and keep warm...
