Hiya everyone,

I have an extra few DT cards for extra inspiration for you as well as the DT cards on the original challenge post.  To enter the challenge or to check out more amazing DT makes then you can find the original post here.  I don't have one myself today to share as I've been spending the last week or so making new stuff for Making Cards magazine so I've not had a lot of spare time. 
 We also have a few new DT members joining us next month so more fab inspiration to be had!

Truly, madly, deeply!

Hiya everyone, 

Just a quick card I have to share with you today as I finally see to have got rid of my latest cold.  I feel like I've spent the last month being ill with the rest of the family so it's nice to feel a bit more normal.

This card I have made with the new Nitwits collections kit which is called "Truly, madly, deeply" which you can check out here.  I have printed the papers and elements directly onto Papermill white linen card and used their buff kraft coloured card too.
It's a fab set full of gorgeous muted reds, creams and browns and lots of yummy hearts.  It's pretty without being overtly girly if that makes sense?
I hope you like it!

Max rocks!


This is my DT card for my ALBC "Man up!" challenge.  I spent hours yesterday faffing with the linky tool for the challenge and afterwards found out it won't show up in the preview until the linky is set to start.  Due to this I forgot to actually blog my card! Doh.  I was tearing my hair out at this stage though! lol

Anyway,  this card has been made with one of our sponsor's images - visible image and the image and sentiment stamp is called Max rocks and the edge stamp round the image is from the Jake skates stamp set.  The papers are from a male paper cellar set I've had for ages.  I coloured the image in with my promarkers and still haven't had chance to try my copics yet.  I'm glad to see the back of January as me and my family feel like we've been constantly ill with various things so we're all feeling a little sorry for ourselves! :(
I'm not a huge fan of male cards as it means I can't use most of my pretty stuff! lol  Anyway, I hope that you like it!

Man up!

Well, today is the 1st February which means it's time for another challenge.  The theme this month is "Man up!" so we want to see all your male themed creations!  

As usual we have some awesome sponsor who have very generously donated some amazing prizes

The DT has come up trumps with some fab inspiration for you all.  I know male cards aren't usually a favourite to make but hopefully you'll get some great ideas!
