Just letting all my blogging friends know I am having a little break for family reasons.
I do have some cards for challenges sitting on my desk but I wont get to share them in time. You can look forward to seeing them here in a week or three... Thanks for sticking around... I may even come back with a bit of candy :)

ICS plus Cupcake Inspiration...

Good evening bloggers!
Stopping in to share my DT card for the new sketch this week at ICS.

We have a fabulous sponsor, Heather from Fresh Brewed designs who generously donated some images for the DT to work with (I chose not to use it for this card) and she is offering a fab prize of 3 digi images of the winners choice!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card from a few different angles, hard to pick up the yellow ink i used for the sentiment in the bright light this morning:

I used some lovely Emmas shoppe paper, MFT die-namics butterflies, felt and twine, pistachio ribbon, spellbinders scallops circles, rhinestones in split pea and a button from my stash. The felt flowers are Stampin' up (long retired and just as long hoarded in my stash) Also the rose red card stock for the base, rhinestone brad, sentiment and rose red and so saffron inks and the flourish stamp on the white half scalloped circles are all stampin' up.

And here is the inspiration photo I was inspired by over at Cupcake Inspirations... the colours of the cake not the black backdrop.
They have a current DT call so if any of you crafty ladies are interested pop over and check out the deets!

Ok that's it for me today... best get some sleep. Grocery shopping tomorrow and still haven't made my meal plan or written out a shopping list. Its on the to-do list for the morning.. Goodnight x

Im a bad bad blogger...

It's been a while since my last post. It gets late and I think oh I will just do it tomorrow, but then I run out of time and it continues on in that fashion. Right now I have time :) and the challenges are still current yay :)

Ok let me see what I have to share tonight........

One for Card Patterns sketch #135

using some hearts a plenty MFT die-namics available from The Stamp Spot, domestic goddess pattern paper and curly cute sentiment from Stampin' up.

My DT card for the sketch #134 over at ICS this week, we have a twist to make a shaped card...
 I cut mine using a scalloped circle nestability, more of those yummy MFT die-namics hearts also some split pea rhinestones and sentiment from Stampin' up. Oh and my swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder.

We have TWO fabulous sponsors this week, so be sure to link your entry up at the ICS challenge blog over the weekend!

 Alrighty my next is a card based on the Twisted Sketches #79 with the twist being felt.
I cut some butterfly MFT die-namics with the MTF felt, added an open scallop border die cut and some buttons, paper from my scrap box... I think the red is Stampin' up and the blue is Echo Park. Oh and the frosted lace stickles around the edge of my sentiment.

A card using some absolutely beautiful paper from the Prima Sparkling Spring 6x6 Pad and more butterfly die-namics and some rhinestones too! Cut the oval and scalloped oval with my spellbinders nestabilites :) sentiment is Stampin' up from one of the hostess sets in the new catalog. I love sentiment stamps can never have enough!
