I am delighted to now be back creating for Digi Choosday

Our theme for you this week is

I have made a circle spinner card using the adorable image called Octavia Rose Garden in the centre, which is available on the Octavia Moonfly CD and Digi Download bundle in both outline and coloured, and as an individual image, in outline only, in the Digi Download store HERE

The lovely flower paper I have used, and the flower which I have double layered, are also from the Digi Download bundle

Taking a little break from blogging

Hi to all my followers

I have had a couple of people contact me to check I am alright as I have not been updating my blog


I am taking a little break from blogging at the moment, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October following my first ever mammogram and its knocked me for six, but I  have been trying to keep up with my blog and DT team stuff but I have now lost my creativity and realise I need to focus on my recovery

I have had so many hospital apointments to attend and have now had 2 operations but still have 4 weeks of radiotherapy to come, once that is out the way I am hoping that I will be able to focus on cardmaking and will look forward to updating my blog once again

My DT card for Digi Choosday's last minute xmas card

 

Here is my DT card for our new challenge over at Digi Choosday

 

Our theme for you this week is

Last Minute Christmas 

 We would love to see your xmas projects so please head over to the challenge blog HERE to enter yours and to see the amazing projects my talented team mates have made to hopefully give you some inspiration

I have made this stepper easel card for this challenge as I love to combine the two techniques. I have written up the measurements I used if anyone wants them, just let me know. You can make 2 cards out of 1 sheet of A3 card.

Everything I have used on this card is from the wonderful Polkadoodles Festive Hollybobs Download collection, which is also available as a CD for those of you who are happy to wait for a physical CD  to arrive in the post
The main image, patterned paper and bottom border is on one of the design sheets, the cracker, holly and lamp posts are under the embellishment section
The paper on the base of the card is from the backing paper section
I have also decoupaged the holly on the cracker and added a message panel using Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval nesties

My DT Creation for Digi Choosday's xmas decoration challenge


 

I have made a cute little tealight lantern for our new challenge over at Digi Choosday 


Our theme for you this week is 

Xmas Table/Decorations  

We look forward to seeing your entries so please visit the challenge blog HERE to enter yours and to see what the rest of the team have made to inspire you 

The gorgeous paper, adorable penguins and tree images are all from the wonderful Polkadoodles Festive Hollybobs Download collection, which is also available as a CD for those of you who are happy to wait for a physical CD  to arrive in the post.

I flipped the same image horizontally for the 2nd penguin so it looks like they are having a snowball fight and then cut a snowflake border with a Memory Box die to go around the lid and some vellum for the windows so the LED tealight shows through
I have added a photo taken at night as the day photo does not show the tealight very well
