ArtbyMiran DT challenge Card

Morning all....I cannot believe its been two weeks already since the last ArtbyMiran Challenge ... (Time is just whizzing by far too quickly ) We had mega loads of fantastic entries. : make sure you check if you are a winner. 
The new Anything goes Challenge starts today... hope that lots of you join in the fun again..  

I wanted to step away from Christmas cards for a while (even thou I still have a few more to make), and wanted to go back to all girly... 

I have used Fairy Lily, another little stunner I think you will agree.

For this card I have used various papers from my scrap stash box, also a shaped card blank front, nestability circle dies, and copics to colour.  ooh and obviously being a fairy, you have to use some fairy dust (glamour dust) lol.. for her wings.

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT cards, as always, they h ave done MiRan proud using her gorge images and made some stunning creations.

Hope you are all getting organised for Christmas.. (I'm not lol) .

Polka Doodles Digi Queen Inspiration Card (Wk 10)

Good Morning all, sorry I am a tad late with my posting, but my computer is dying on me.. Time to go shopping for a Chrimbo present for myself I think... If its not overheating, its switching itself off.. probably due to overheating... Dog hairs and Dust !  and there are only so many times I can have it taken apart.... so I do apologise..  but it just didn't want to play yesterday, for me to schedule, and true to form.. I overslept this morning... typical ! 

So... a little bit late, but here is my card card for this weeks Polka Doodles Digi Queen Design Team.

I have used the fabulous Etty Bear Sewing digi stamp.

I have coloured her with copics, 
E30, E31. E33, E35, E37. B0000, B000, B1, B2, B5. R81, R20.

The Embossing folder is Boofle Mixed Buttons I have had this for ages and never used before, but as soon as I started to colour up Etty, I just knew what I wanted to use as a backing... I lightly rubbed over some of the buttons using chalks.. added three buttons from stash, and some ribbon and bow...  The Die is by X cut.   

Make sure you pop over to take a look at the wonderful creations by the rest of the Digi Queen Team, and there is still time to join in the current challenge

Have a fun day... hugs Jackie.
