I’m back………at last!!

I’m sorry it’s been so long since I last posted but I’ve been having some major issues with my computer.  It caught a nasty virus and had to be wiped clean (a very traumatic and worrying experience!).  Luckily the nice little boy (!) in the computer shop managed to save most of my files so it was just a case of finding all my faves etc on the internet…… mean feat I can tell you, and I’m still discovering things that I’m missing (and probably will for a long long time!).  I hope you have all been well and keeping warm during this freakishly cold snap we’re having yet again. 

As I wasn’t able to blog my DT cards at the beginning of the week I thought I show you them over the weekend before my new cards are due on Monday and Tuesday. 

The first card I’m showing you today is my DT card for the stamp with fun challenge:

SWF #45 - hearts

  SWF #45 - hearts (close up)

Our theme was ‘hearts’ and our sponsor was Digital Delights by Louby Loo and the DT were lucky enough to use one of their digital images if they liked. 

I chose to use ‘Valentine Bonnie’ and I coloured her with my promarkers, adding stickles to her bows and hearts.  The papers are a combination of freebie magazine paper and an off cut from my stash.  The red card is from the papermill shop and the image was cut out with my circle nesties.  I used my MS valentine heart border punch and the adhesive stones were a RAK from Clare.  The ribbon is from fantastic ribbons and the sentiment is a stamp by Anita’s.  The heart brad is from my stash.

Please check out the rest of the DT cards as they are all stunning.  Don’t forget you still have time to enter as the new challenge launches on Monday. 

My card fits in with quite a few challenges this week (as it’s the week of lurve) so here goes:

Pile it on challenge – to the one I love

Stamptacular challenge – love is in the air
