Good morning friends. I back to share my DT card for the charisma cardz challenge, sorry I know it’s late yet again but only by a day lol! The theme this week is ‘magic numbers’ so you need to have a number somewhere on your card. As luck would have it I needed an 18th birthday card for my husband’s nephew so it was perfect timing. I decided to use an old WOJ image ‘Charlie 007‘ as he is so useful for any type of celebration. Here is my card:
I decided to colour his suit in this aqua/teal colour so that he would match the paper – I didn’t think a chocolate suit would look very nice! I love this paper pad – it’s new to me, I saw it on another crafter’s blog and had to have it. It’s MME ‘true blue’ paper pad and I got it from Crafty Emma’s store. I already had the pink version but I think I love this one just as much as that one.
We have two sponsors this week – which means more chances to win! Firstly we have Lili of the Valley who are offering a £10.00 voucher for their online store.
Our second sponsor is Some Odd Girl and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digis from their online store.
The rest of the DT have created gorgeous samples for your inspiration once again this week so why not pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.

Now onto my very exciting news. A little while ago I applied to join the Winter Wonderland challenge Design Team and I am so honoured to announce that I have been selected to join Marianne’s team. There will be two separate DT teams and we will all be making a card for next week’s challenge and then our team will making samples for the following week. We will then make cards on alternative weeks. I am so pleased to have been chosen and it will definitely help with the Christmas card production for 2011 lol!
I hope you will follow me on my new journey and maybe join in with our challenges from time to time! I will hopefully be back tomorrow as I plan to join in with Marcea’s music saves my soul this week as I have missed quite a few weeks now and I love to join in and listen to all your songs. Thanks for stopping by today.
