Charisma cardz #22–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I would like to start today by saying a huge thank you for all your congrats and lovely comments you left me on yesterday’s post.  I am so grateful to have such amazing friends and followers.  Ok, enough of the soppyness, I’d better get on with my post for today haha!

Today we have a brand new challenge over at charisma cardz challenge which has been set by Allison and she has chosen “something that flys”, so basically she wants to see your birds, fairies, butterflies, aeroplanes…….anything that can fly!!  Here is my card:

charisma cardz #22 - something that flys

I have used a super cute image from pink cat studio called ‘birds make giant cupcake’ and coloured it with my promarkers.  I cut a circle doily into quarters and used two as corner decorations, which unusually for me is a good idea I think!!  I kept the layout fairly simple but I’m quite pleased with the finished result (for once!!). 

We have two sponsors this week, firstly we have Simon Says Stamp and they are offering one lucky winner a $20.00 voucher to spend in their online store. 


Our second sponsor is pink cat studio, who generously gave me the image I used on my card, and the lucky winner will receive 5 digi images of their choice.

The rest of my DT team-mates have created gorgeous samples once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  You won’t be disappointed I promise!  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Aly’s Sunday challenge – cupcakes

Cutie Sunday challenge – green and pink

Whoopsi daisy challenge – lace and ribbons (hope my doily quarters pass for lace)

Ooh la la creations challenge – happy birthday

Digital Tuesday challenge – animal friends (are birds animals?)

Top tip Tuesday challenge – wrap it up with ribbon

Crafts and me challenge – punch it out (my flowers)

Crafty catz challenge – pink and green

Stamp something challenge – something sentimental – use a sentiment

Allsorts challenge – things with wings

I hope you will have chance to play along with our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
