Liam and Owens first JDT cards for CRAFT challenge

Not only do I have to show to my cards for CRAFT challenge, but I have to share you my kids junior DT cards for CRAFT. This is the first week they've joined the design team. I hope you like their makes. I wanted to share a photo of them making their cards with you too.

As you can see by the boxes in the background they made them mid packing up our house for moving. They'd been so good all morning whilst me and hubby were packing I promsied we'd make cards in the afternoon.

Here's Liams card (who's 5). He used one of the sponsors images from Aifactory from a set called 'my first rainbow digital punch stamp'

Here's Owens card (who's 4) used another Aifactory image from the same image pack

Great job boys, and most importantly they had fun making them. They've just given them to their Grandparents to say thank you for letting us stay for the week.
(We have a week when we are between houses, but tomorrow we move into our new house, we are all so excited)

Santa Baby Card and some news

It's Thursday again, that means it's time for another challenge over at CRAFT challenge. First I have some news to share with you though. My two boys are going to follow in my footsteps and have now joined the CRAFT challenge design team as junior members, well done Liam and Owen. At the moment they don't have their own blog, so you'll be seeing more of their creations on here in future.

Now for this weeks challenge at CRAFT we have a recipe challenge for you
1 ribbon, 2 shapes and some glitter

Our sponsor this week is
The winner gets to choose 4 digi stamps from the online shop
I had fun with this card lol. I'm going to add a sentiment and used it as my hubbys christmas card. I thought afterwards that I should have done it in red and green and he loves the traditional christmas colours.
Oh well!! maybe he'll just have to have 2 cards.

I've used christmas papers from Papermania, the ribbon is from SU (pretty in pink), the charm is from Bunny Zoe crafts (I think) and the heart is die cut using a Marriane Creatables die. Finally I added some bling and glitter using Stickles glitter glue.
