Two DT items to share with you today...first Stamp With Fun where this week the challenge is "Not A Card"...i decided to make a Birthday/Event reminder,it was going to be displayed in a CD case,but i've 3d'd it and think it looks so much better on the easel anyway.I've used WOJ "Sitting Summer Willow! coloured with Distress Inks.The cherry paper and calendar are from a Funky Fairy's download and the stripped paper Pink Petticoat.Ribbon and adhesive gems from stash.Because the squares are too small to write in i've used large adhesive gems to mark the dates,the same colour gems are used on the back to index the dates....i've used Ben's and my moms birthdays to show you an example,not that i'm going to forget their

The second one is my DT card for Cute Daisy May...the theme this week "Let's Emboss".When Linnie sent us all some new sheets to work with i knew i just had to use one of the images from the Christmas sheet "No 27",i know what you're all thinking....i've lost the plot,thinking of Christmas with the weather we're having at the,well it's never too soon to start!I've coloured her using Promarkers and Prisma's cut out and raised her from the Cuttlebug"Lace Tree" using Silicone gel,the papers are DCWV Christmas stack.The alphabet i've used for the bunting is K&Co which was cream,i coloured it using a promarker.The parcels are from a See'D stamp set also raised using silcone gel (these i added after i sent my photo to Linnie,so the one showing on the challenge blog as no,i cut the star,coloured it again with a promarker and covered it in glamour dust which i've also added to parts of the backing paper for some extra sparkle...but not showing too well.Everything else,tiny bows,flat backed pearls and gems to decorate the tree from stash.
Well sorry for the long post today...thanks to everyone who joined us on the challenges last week,hope to see you all again this week,can't wait to see what you all come up with!
Have a lovely excuse not to the weathers gorgeous!i've got alot planned for today hope i can fit it all in,but no crafting involved :0(,
Take care
