Totally Papercrafts Challenge 206 DT

Hi there,

Today I am bringing you my creation for Challenge 206 at Totally Papercrafts. This week we have a Valentine/Love theme to celebrate today being Valentines Day.  So get your romance on if you haven't already and show us a wonderful Valentine/Love creation.  This week we are sponsored by Milk n Coffee who have a wonderful prize up for grabs.  For my card this week I have chosen a Glamerous Tiffany image to work with, she is beautiful isn't she.

Well here she is;

I have kept this card fairly simple to show off this beautiful image.  I have used Echo Park Love Story papers (I love this pad but it is getting low :( ) and I have coloured her with my Finecolour markers.  Just some embossing and some Stickles to top her off and a simple but elegant make was the result.  I hope you like her.

I wish to enter the following challenges;
Craftitude - Anything Goes/Valentine/Love
Crafty Hands - Embossed Background
Crafty Catz - Lady in Red
Digi Haven - Love
Graph It - Floral/Love

Penny's Challenge 163 DT

Hi everybody,

It is so super hot here and there is a real smell of smoke in the air due to a recent bush fire near to us. Not great crafting weather but I have still managed to get a few makes in.

Today's make is for Penny's Challenge #163, "Something Old, Something New."  I have chosen to go with something different this week.  No card, instead I have made some corner bookmarks.  My daughter has started reading all the old Enid Blyton books so when I saw my image for this week I was instantly inspired to create a bookmark to go with the old books.  So my "Old" is my inspiration from old books (and I used scraps for them) and my "New" is making a corner bookmark (new technique and new image also). 

Well here they are;

Echo Park So Happy Together Papers
Coloured with Promarkers
There are some awesome prizes up for grabs this week donated by our wonderful sponsors this week.
Prize - $20 gift certificate
Prize - $15 gift certificate 
Head on over to Penny's and check out what the other DT girls have been up to and then get crafting.  Thanks for dropping by today.
