Today is the start of our challenge at 
Our banner for your blog
or lovely sponsor is
I am afraid I am rather late posting my DT card but my mum came over early this morning and I have spent the day looking after her, my apologies to my DT sisters.
 I actually have two cards in my post the first one being my DT card for the challenge theme
For my card I have used one of my Gorjuss Girl stamps I coloured her with markers then mounted onto black card, I also used some of my Gorjuss ribbon for the tags and bow, the flowers are from Hobby House, I also added punched tags and butterflies, pearls and frosted berry, I used my scallop punch for the border that is topped by the strip of ribbon, I doodles a couple of little white flowers on the black tags, finally I added a sentiment.

My second card is very CAS for me, not used to type of style but I always love to see what other crafters do.
I have used one of my Stamp Addicts Wooden stamp cubes for both the daisy and the frame, I have used TH distress ink for the colour and stamped sentiment, I finally added some lilac beads in a bottle.
I would like to enter this card into the challenge at 

On a final note
Hello dear Stampers,

Before we go to the new challenge we have a DT-call announcement:
With Mandy leaving us we are now looking for a new DT member. Do you like stamping and are you interested in joining our DT?
We like all kinds and styles of crafting, but you MUST use STAMPS. 
(Either images, sentiments, backgrounds, or if you use digis they must be self coloured)
We have sponsors but you are free in your choice of brands of stamps as long as you follow the theme.
You don't need any DT experience but we do have a few other requirements:
  • We have a challenge every 2 weeks. As we have two teams you will be required to make 1   card/project per 4 weeks.
  • You comment on every challenge (both team A and B challenges) on your assigned number.
  • You pick a top three out of every challenge. (A and B challenges)
 Are you interested in joining our friendly DT? 
Send a  mail to MARLIES with a link to your blog.
Please put ATSC-DT call in the subject line.

Bye for now
Lorraine x
