** Warning - this is going to be a really long post **
Grab a cuppa and a few biscuits to keep you going!
I’m really sorry I’ve been missing in action this week but I’ve hurt my back (again) and have been in considerable pain, so crafting has been a no-go (which is killing me lol!). Anyway I thought I had better spend 5 minutes to catch up with my DT challenges this week. Now for some of them I have managed to find a previously un-blogged card in my archives that I could share but for some I didn’t submit a card this week (boohoo!)
Firstly this week’s theme over at stamp with fun challenge is “snow”. Now I know some of you are sick of wintery cards but it’s the perfect excuse to get an early start on this year’s Christmas cards lol! I’m sorry but I don’t have a card to share with you for this challenge but please pop over to the challenge blog to see the lovely cards the rest of the DT have made. We have a sponsor and a prize for this week’s challenge so an extra reason to dig out those snowy images!
Our sponsor is Cute Stamps and Cards and the lucky winner will receive this gorgeous Belles & Whistles stamp.
The next challenge is the cupcake craft challenge and it was my turn to set the theme this week and I chose “something new” which could mean new baby, new home or even new stash you had for Christmas! I managed to find a new home card that I hadn’t shared with you that I made some time ago. Here is my card using a super cute Stamping Bella image:
Our sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs and the lucky winner will receive 4 digis of their choice from their online store.
Don’t forget we also have our “icing on the cupcake” prizes for January and we are spoiling you this month as we have 3 prizes up for grabs. For full details check out the challenge blog. The rest of the DT have created amazing cards this week so please pop over and check them out.
I can also enter my card into the following challenges:
Fairy fun challenge – new beginnings
Really reasonable ribbon challenge – something new and ribbon
Winter wonderland challenge – let’s go dotty (doesn’t have to be Christmas)

Meljen’s challenge – square or round cards only
Sassy studio designs challenge – use something you’ve had for at least a year (my image and papers lol!)
I’m not going to add an ingredient list as it will make my mega post even longer otherwise!
Lastly the theme over at passion for promarkers challenge this week is “baby cards” and again it was my turn to choose the theme. I’m really disappointed that I don’t have a card to share as I really love making baby cards. They are just so sweet aren’t they. However the girls have done a brilliant job and Gro and Ida have even helped me out by making two cards this week – thanks girls!
Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen and she is offering a £10.00 voucher to spend in her online shop.
I apologise for the lack of cards this week but I hope that normal service will be resumed next week – fingers crossed. I have lots of lovely new stash to play with and it’s just calling to me!
I will be back a little later with my DT card for this week’s Charisma Cardz challenge and I will also be announcing the lucky winner of my mini candy but until then have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
