Good morning dear friends. It’s Thursday already and it’s the last day of school for my boys as they have an inset day ahead of the half term week next week. At least there will be peace in the mornings next week as I won’t have to keep nagging my eldest son to get up!!
I’m here this morning to share my DT card for this week’s charisma cardz challenge. This week the lovely Gemma has set the theme and she has chosen “embossing”. As my ink has now finally been delivered I decided to use a new digi image from DigiStamp Boutique and made a Christmas card. You can see it here:
I decided to try the “dotty” halo effect around my image but I don’t it looks as fantastic as some talented crafters out there in blogland, but at least now I can say I gave it a go! The image is called “skating Hattie” and it is available in the store here and she is coloured with flex markers and promarkers. The papers are from an old paper pad by DCWV called ‘the Christmas multi-stack’ and I used the swiss dots embossing folder on the white panels behind the image.
Our sponsors this week are Meljen’s designs and they are offering one lucky winner 4 digi images of their choice and our second sponsor is all that scraps and one lucky winner will receive either one cc designs stamp set or 4 single stamps of their choice.
The rest of the design team have created gorgeous samples once again, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
