Bling, Bling, Bling

Howdy Doody Bloggers

I am here again with another great challenge at

and the challenge this week is


Our fantastic sponsors this week are


Here is what I created with the super sweet Ballerina Rosie digi from the 'Funtime Rosie' collection at Digi Stamp Boutique

Isn't Rosie just so cute. She is coloured with pro markers and then lots of sparkly stickles over the top of her dress and shoes. I die cut her with a scalloped circle nestie and used the same die to cut a piece of blue satin paper. It doesn't show very well but the paper has a lovely shine to it and added to the 'bling' factor. I ruffled pink ribbon along 2 edges and used a flower sequin and small yellow half pearl in the corner of the ribbon.
To add more bling I went with clear gems on the scallops of the satin paper. The flower backing paper was from my stash and finally lilac and pink gems in the corners.

I hope you will join us in this challenge and take a look at my fellow DT's makes too.

I'm Back @ Just Inspirational Challenges :D


It's been a while hasn't it, and I'm sorry I've not managed to update my blog recently. I had an op a couple of weeks ago and haven't been able to craft or get much time on the lappy but finally today I felt ok enough to get my butt back into gear and do my DT card :)

This week it was my turn to chose the inspirational photo and I know there is a lot of patriotic colours around at the mo, which is brilliant, but I wanted to do something a little different so I chose this

I love it, still patriotic but different. I hope you like it.

and the are giving the winner this fantastic prize

So onto my make, I really enjoyed making it for one because I adore LOTV stamps and its been so long since I made anything with paper and pro markers I had a lovely time this afternoon.

Now arn't those girls just so cute :) and I wonder what they are gossipping about, maybe what they are going to wear for the jubilee celebration party. 
The stamp is coloured with pro markers and cut with a nestie, I used the same nestie to cut the checked paper behind. The sentiment I made myself using a little set of alpha stamps I picked up years ago in a £shop and the tea bag stamp was part of a set that was a freebie on a recent magazine. Pretty rustic striped backing paper and card candi were the only other things I used. Quite a simple card, not over the top with embellies but I think its OK.

I hope you will come along and join us this week with the challenge at
and also check out my fellow DT's makes too.

I loved making this as its so far from the girly pink & black card I thought I was going to make, and the image is just so much fun.
I hope you will pop along to Charisma Cardz and take a peek at what my fellow DT girls have made, and have a go at this challenge to be in with a chance of wining one of the 2 fab prizes.
