Hi all what rotten weather we are having, while I am writing this it is raining, windy and cold, brrrrr feels like Winter, I am going to have to start wearing my fluffy socks lol.
Ok today is the start of two new challenges at both Sew Many Challenges and Crafty Ann's. Before I get onto my cards can I say a big thank you to all who entered our last challenges the quality of work is amazing and so beautiful to see. 

My first DT card is for Sew Many Challenges and this week the theme is
I have used an image of Toga giving Jaden a birthday gift, this image and many more are available at
I have coloured the image with promarkers the sentiment is SU, I used Basic Grey papers, added some gingham ribbon and bows also a couple of punched butterflies. 

This next card I think depicts the weather perfectly lol, this is my DT card for 
Crafty Ann's Challenge which is now on blogger just follow this link HERE and please become one of our followers we would love it.
This time we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow
Here is the sketch

and here is my card.
I have used all digital items that are available from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop 
I have used two different papers and the Duck image which I have coloured with promarkers, the corners are from a magazine freebie.

I hope that I have given you just a little inspiration but please do pay the other DTM a visit and see their wonderful creations.
I do hope you will join our challenges this week we always get so much pleasure from seeing your creativity 
I am sending you all big hugs and see you later.
