MAWTT challenge Someone Special at Christmas

This week's challenge at Moving Along With The Times is to make a CHRISTMAS CARD but with a twist - it must be for SOMEONE SPECIAL and make reference to it on the front :D
I decided to keep the sentiment open-ended so I can write inside (husband / daughter / son / etc).
I used my "antique silhouette cameo" also known as "CRAFT KNIFE" (lol) to cut out the tree and popped it up from the opening with foam tape.
The image is from Meljen's Designs: http://www.meljensdesigns.com/christmas-tree/
I love that font!! It's called Angelic War and I saw now that it perfectly mimics Melissa's characteristic twirls :D

I got some extra time to play with Margy's new DS4J image, Sunbird:

DS4J challenge 102 Animals

Get out your furry or buggy stamps and join us in our ANIMALS challenge at Digistamps4Joy.
The image I used Juvenile Trio is one of my favorites!
 The background paper I stamped probably over 2 years ago and didn't use it at the time. Glad I kept it with my scrap papers!! It's a leaf from Whimsical Wishes (GKD).
The layout is from one of this month's Viva La Verve sketches:
 You should really check out their sketches if you haven't already :D and you get a whole month to play with the weekly sketches.

Take care everyone!

DS4J release Sunday BUN in the OVEN

It's Release Sunday and it's quit a tongue-in-cheek release for me.  On Friday I posted my "Eggcellent" image and sentiment which is available today and the other image (with 2 sentiments) can be seen on this card below:

The other sentiment says, "We have news" for an announcement card :D

The image can be used on its own as well of course for lovers of baking.

Remember that our "Anniversary" challenge is still on so you have time to join us!

Building Crane

I haven't had a chance to make a card with this image of mine that is in the DS4J shop but I just wanted to get this out there!  I left the banner blank to write an age in when it gets a recipient!

Hope everyone will have a great weekend.

World Egg Day and a new DS4J image!

This is SUCH a coincidence.  I did this image a while back and it was scheduled for release THIS SUNDAY at Digistamps4Joy. So this is a preview of the image that will be available on Sunday. But since today is WORLD EGG DAY I'm posting my card so long for a giggle!

I paper pieced the egg cup and the egg shell separately and had the top of the egg shell lifted up for texture and dimension. 

DESIGN NOTE:  If you colour the whole egg the same shade it will look like a cracked egg and not yet opened up :D

The sentiment is part of the set available on Sunday (12th Oct) in the DS4J SHOP.
