Today I have two cards that I would like to enter into a few challenges. 
My first card features a Scrappers Delight image called Cupcake Honey, I have coloured her with Graph It Markers and Copics, I have mounted her onto both green and blue cardstock, the papers are a mix from stash, I added some resin flowers, sentiment, butterflies, bow and a couple of blue ribbon buttons. I also added glossy accents to her glasses, lips and the candy on the cake

My next card is also a birthday card and for this one I have used a Serendipity rubber stamp that I have had for a few years but never used before it came with the sentiment,  I used black Momento tuxedo ink and coloured with Graph It markers.  The papers are a mix from my stash, I have added pink organza ribbon and double bow, resin flowers, flowers and sentiment plus a gem butterfly.
My mum has always loved Geraniums sp thought that this would be perfect for a card for her birthday.

Hi all, today it is raining, windy and very cold, yesterday the sun was shining although still very cold, I have finally resorted to putting the heating on for an hour at night.  Last night we had a power failure and lost all electric for 2 hours mum had come round while my brother went out for a few hours so I was glad I had her for company.  Jess is frightened of the fireworks so kept cuddled up with mum.
   A week this coming Sunday mum will be 95 years young so I have been making some cards for her, this one i am sharing with you today is for my son James to give to her.
I have used a digital image from Besties and is a little different to the usual 'big eyes' images, she is called 'Sweet Lil Rose' I have coloured her with Graph It Markers and Copics, I doodled the frame, added some gold leaf around the edging and mounted her onto Bazzill cardstock. The base card is from Hunkydory, I folded the A4 sheet in half then cut is down to make a square, I then measured the edges, cut then embossed fold lines to make a side step card, I added a double bow using organza and gingham ribbon, the banners I adhered using 3d foam pads, flowers, sentiment then found an old wood mounted stamp 'Nan' and stamped it on the image.

Hi all, today I would like to share my latest Christmas card with you and to enter into some challenges.
I have used a Bestie image 952, I have coloured her with Graph It Markers and Copics, the papers are from papermania (I think) all have been mounted onto black card stock, I have added some gems, flowers, ribbon, bow holly leaf and berries, die cut bells and sentiment, I used my Holly border XCut punch on the black card at the bottom of the image.
I have taken 2 pictures from different angles due to the change in light source, not sure which one showed the best so I thought i would post them both.

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

Hi all, I am back, hope that it will be for some time, I think I have now sorted my computer problems I am keeping my fingers and everything else crossed, lol.
I got my previous laptop repaired and fully secured so maybe things will start working right they seem to be at the moment as I have managed to get round to do some catch up commenting, and what a treat it was for me to see some awesome creations. I am back on Windows 7 and I have sold my new Laptop which was Windows 8 and I didn't like it.
Ok now onto my card that I made last week, I have used a Teddy Bea image and coloured her with Graph It Markers, I used my EK Success circle cutter for the two central circles, the white one I embellished with silver glitter then added some pearls, the papers are LOTV, I added some Washi tape, gold glittered bow, flowers, pearls and sentiment.  I added some WOW pink glitter to Teddy Bea's wings and wand and the collar on the little doggy.

Hi all, this post is scheduled so I do hope it works without causing anyone any problems.
This is my last GDT post for 
It is  a reminder post for the current challenge
CHARADES (is it a song, film or book)
I decided to go for another Christmas song which, I am sure is a firm favourite of so many,
The song and bells are both from one of the sponsors,
I have used ny MCS programme and inserted the song onto paper from Bearly Mine, I then added glitter around the edge, I printed out two of the bell sets cut them out coloured the ribbon then added glitter to the bells, I added a bow, silver mirri card candy and punched out quite a few Holly leaves the make the central column
I hope that you will take this chance to join the challenge which has one more week to run.
I want to thank everyone for visiting my older posts and leaving me so much support and encouragement  I hope to post another card in the week and to give you a few updates.
Until then enjoy the weekend
