Pumpkin Card

Hi Everyone and Welcome to my new follower, I appreciate your support very much.

Now on to my card for today, it's a DT card for Deedee's Digis and the Allsorts Challenge that Deedee is sponsoring. The Theme is "no patterned paper / designed paper, That really started me thinking, as I love my DP's,  Krewella Kreations was giving a cut file of a Pumpkin, how did she know I needed it? Thanks Krewella. I made the pumpkin into a card file with orange card and layered the leaves and stalk with green card. I dry embossed the pumpkin and the leaves with different embossing folders. I added thinking mouse, well it had to be him didn't it? The sentiment comes from the kit. I added 3D gloss to his eyes and tail and glitter to the leaves and stalk, you have to have a little glitter don't you?

Chocolate Heaven

Hi Everyone, I had a birthday card to make for one of my nieces, she like the rest of the family is a chocoholic, so what better than send her a card with chocolate on it? I designed the card in PS with DP's and printed it all out, then 3D'd the main image. I love the images outside and inside. Just 3 layers and easier to post!

Halloween card

Hi Everyone, my DT card today is for the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge where I had a choice of Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Bonfire, I chose Halloween, something I don't do every year. I have had lots of fun in Photoshop doing this, doing new things (for me) and lots of papers and blending options in PS, I know lots of you don't know what the heck I am talking about, but if you DO want to know, I'm here to help :)

I used a Bat background cutting file from Birds cards behind the one layer DP background and a Cameo cut and print 3D upside down Bat and tree from the Deedee digi kit.  When I was putting this together the times I nearly stuck the bat the wrong way up, whoa! so very nearly! The sentiment is from the fabby kit too. Adding the kit promo here, I have just realised, I should have looked at the kit closer as there is a moon and bat in it, would have saved me looking for a moon - duh! I even placed the little bat, in near enough the same areas! I love the upside down bat, he's got a cute expression.

"Pick Your Pal" World Card Making Day Challenge!

World Card Making Day ("WCMD")!!! A day set aside worldwide to celebrate our craft. Naturally we couldn't let it pass us by without a special event to celebrate! So here's what we've got for you today: "Pick Your Pal" Tic-Tac-Toe!

As you can see, we've created a fun game board for you. (Click on it to enlarge it if you need to!) How do you play? Easy-peasy!

1. Choose a row on the Tic-Tac-Toe board, make a card using one of our digis that matches that row, share it on your blog or public gallery, and then link it up to our WCMD challenge post using the linky tool.  No back-linking please. You must create a new card for this challenge.
2. Each numbered row on the Tic-Tac-Toe card coordinates to a "Pal" digi that you will receive as a prize for completing that row. There are a total of eight "Pal" digis that you can win, including four from our "Pumpkin Pals" set...
...and four from our brand new, not-yet-in-the-shop "Stocking Pals" set!

3. When you link up your card, please state which row number you followed to create it, and verify that your email address is 100% correct in the link-up so that Deedee can email you your prize!
4. You may participate multiple times to get multiple digis. Each entry must be linked separately, even if you include them in a single blog or gallery post.
5. If you complete the whole Tic-Tac-Toe card ("Blackout") via one card OR by completing three cards representing either all three vertical rows or all three horizontal rows, you will receive both full sets including the additional elements shown in the photos above!
6. In addition to the "Pal" digi prizes shown above, we will also have TWO additional prize drawings at the end of the challenge:
  • One entrant will win a spot as our Guest Designer here on the blog for the month of November! Now, we know that some of you would not be interested in this, so to make sure that we're only drawing from those who are, please, if you are interested in entering this drawing, remember to put "GDT" next to your name in your link-up(s).
  • We will draw for a number between "1" and "9" (eight numbered Tic-Tac-Toe rows plus the number "9" for "Blackout"). Everyone who entered a card for that number of row on the Tic-Tac-Toe card will win a $10 gift code to the shop!
7. DEADLINE: You have until Friday, 16 October, 2015 to complete this challenge. Drawing winners will be announced here on Saturday, 17 October, 2015.

Owls card.

Hi Everyone, a little late with my post, it's for World Card Making Day, but I scheduled another instead funnily also by TLC, so here is another post today. It's an Owl image given by Paulette at Create with TLC I think these are really strong owls and had to be for a masculine card, I decided to use Autumn colours, it's the phase I'm in LOL. I designed and coloured in PS, printed out, layered and added mini leaves from Papermania punches. (again), the sentiment jumped out of my mind while I was colouring the owls.

Acorn Fairy

 Hi Everyone, an Autumn card today, which I made with freebies from Create with TLC, Paulette is very generous with her images there are also many available to buy.

The Acorn Fairy was a freebie from last week, the ready coloured print background (acorns and leaves) "Autumn Colours in Nature" was from last year. It was lovely to be able to combine the two images. I  designed the card and coloured the fairy in PS, 3D'd the Fairy image, added lots of glitter, 3D gloss for the acorns in the image, I used Papermania punches for the leaves and coloured them with my Spectrum Noirs. I added the leaves to the left side of the card so that they would mix with the falling leaves on the paper.

This is one of those cards I am thrilled with, so much so, I have put it into a box frame for my craft room, especially for the Autumn Season. The photo taken in the evening sun, even has an Autumn cast to it. The framed photo was taken in a North room so in a way the colour is more realistic.

I went for a walk the other morning in this Indian Summer we have been having and decided to take a few early Autumn images.

DSC October

It's time for the Monthly challenge at

the Theme is 

Feeling Fruity

sponsored by  Lacy Sunshine

Here is my "Feeling Fruity", I felt I needed to do a recipe with "Apple Cider" by Lacy Sunshine, so I looked up a recipe which included both and here it is, the web page it comes from is on the left of the recipe. The note pad is for me, as hubby does 90% of the cooking LOL. I designed and coloured it all in PS. It's the first time I have done a nose that I am pleased with! I'm quite pleased with my apple too, I spent quite a long time on it, as it looked so dreadful to start. Hope you can make the recipe, I haven't - YET! so can't tell you how it tastes, but it sounds scrumptious.
