Charisma cardz #4–DT card

Happy Thursday friends, I can’t believe how fast this week is going.  It is my first week back in work since I hurt my back and it’s very busy with lots to catch up on which means the time is whizzing by there too (which is fantastic lol!).  I hope you are all having a good week so far and that the weather isn’t too bad for you, although it’s pretty wet and wild here at the moment.  At least we are luckier than the poor people in Australia, I hope everyone is safe there. 

Enough of my rambling!!  I’m here this morning to share my DT card for this week’s charisma cardz challenge and this week we have a really tricky challenge for you.  Leah wants us to only use an image, papers and a sentiment so no embellishments whatsoever!  Oh my goodness how difficult is that???  I decided the safe bet was to make a male themed card as I don’t tend to fuss them too much anyway.  Here is my card:

charisma #4 - image, sentiment and papers only

I have used a brand new image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Barney and heart’ and isn’t he just so adorable.  Sally-Ann has released lots of new images for February and there are quite a few different Barney images to buy (and I love them all).  The offer of the month for February is a gorgeous cutie called Grace (see top of my sidebar for details) and there are 4 images for £2.99, which is brilliant value. 

We have two sponsors this week, firstly we have Make it Crafty

and our second sponsor is Pizzazz Aplenty

Please check out the challenge blog for details on the prizes.  The rest of the design team have done a brilliant job with Leah’s challenge, so please pop over and take a peek.  We appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
