Good evening dear friends. I hope you are all ok and have survived this cold and wintery week. A special shout out to all my friends in the North of England and Scotland – I hope you’re all ok and managing to keep warm and safe in all the dreadful weather you’ve been having over the last few days.
I’m having a bit of week this week – I’m behind on posting most of my DT cards so I’m going to have a catch up session today and I’m starting with my DT project for this week’s charisma cardz challenge (which was due yesterday oops!). Our theme this week has been set by Jenni and she has chosen “no cards”. I’m sure you can come up with lots of brilliant ideas, such as tags, bags, boxes etc and for my project I decided to decorate a plain gift bag:
Here is a side view
and a close up of the image
I used an image from DigiStamp Boutique from the “Rudolph” set which is on offer for December. There are two super cute images in the set and they are available at the brilliant price of just £1.50 for both, until January, so grab a bargain now while you can. I coloured the image with my promarkers and flex markers and the papers are scraps from my stash.
We have lots of sponsors this week – firstly we have Bunny Zoe crafts and they are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
Our second sponsor is Whiff of Joy who are offering one lucky winner a stamp of their choice!
Our third sponsor is The Stamping Boutique and they are are offering 5 digis of the winners choice!
We also have a surprise prize which is chosen from all the entries added to our Facebook page.
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples for your inspiration, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
