Sketch challenge over at CRAFT

It's the start of another challenge over at CRAFT, this week we have a sktch challenge for you. 
It was designed by a fellow DT member Sheryl

 We have lots of sponsors again this week, 

Owen and myself made DT cards using a cute car image from the Stampin Boutique   

Here's my card. 

 I've used paper from a Forever friends spring time paper pack. Flowers I think are from Beecrafty. I've punched out the leaves and added some ribbon and Candi.

Here's Owens JDT card

He's used things from his craft box but he did manage to sneak a bit of SU paper on their, he insisted he wanted it orange so I said he could use a bit. He got his unsual glitter on it too but decided he only wanted a single line of glitter. He's already given his card to his Grandma to say thank you for looking after him and his brother over the half term.
Thanks for looking.

Look who I've met....

I went to the stitches trade show at the weekend with my Mum and Dad. They have a business selling patchwork fabric, which you can find here. I help out at the shows for them sometimes so they invited me along this year to the NEC trade show. 
I got to see lots of new cards making goodies but the highlight was watching a demo by....
Tim Holtz.
I felt like at little school girl again as at the end of his morning demo session I asked him for a photo, he was more then happy to pose for the camera. What a great guy, he was so down to earth and very friendly. 
Here's the photo of us. Notice  the big grin on my face :-)

Rainy days..

I'm not that great at keeping up to date with my blogging (apart from DT cards), here's a card I made a few weeks again using a Little Claire stamp. It was a misreable day so I cheered myself up by making this as bright as I could.


Here's another card using made recently using a LOTV die cut
  And here's one final card to show you tonight

Biker Chic

Over at Lexis Creations we have a fabulous new challenge for you...
We are lucky to be sponsored by The Stamping Boutique

I used a fabulous digi image created by Lexi called Biker Chic Chloe. I thought she's look good in blue so I chose a blue theme for my DT card

I've used a retired paper pack from SU, the sentiment is from Craftwork cards, I made the flower using some blue and silver cord that I've spiraled around and added a Papermania glitter brad center. I've also added a butterfly (MS punch), a handbag charm and buttons from my stash.

And here's Owens (age 4). He used the same digi as his brother and paper from a SU paper pad.
