Hi all, sorry but I am so late with my DT cards things have not gone well for me today.  Anyway I am now here and I have two DT cards to show you the first one is for our new fortnightly challenge at OLLCB
the theme is anything with 
Here is my DT card using papers and image from the newly released Everyday CD.  This was launched on TV yesterday and sold out I am not surprised because it is awesome. 
I used black card stock for the base card as well as for mounting the papers and image on I also added some punched corners and gingham ribbon and bow.

My next DT card is for the final days preview of the new Christmas Release Stamps from Crafty Sentiments, this one is called Carrying the Tree. 
I have used a backing paper from Bearly Mine Designs Christmas Swirls set, I thought it was perfect for the design I wanted to use, I added lots of lovely stickles for a frosty effect.  I have tried something a little bit different and added an acetate overlay to which I added the image and sentiment.  I coloured the image with promarkers cut him out and adhered him to the acetate the sentiment is a Cuddly Buddly stamp that I have had for quite a few years. 

I would like to enter this card into the challenge at The Crazy Challenge which is Christmas in July.

I would like to thank you all for leaving me such wonderful, supportive and encouraging comments on my last post they have meant so much to me.

I hope that you will come join our challenge at 
hugs for now see you later.

Love how you've used black in the first card...definitely makes it so striking. Using vellum with the CSD card is too awesome and it creates just a surreal scene. Beautiful work
