Over on the Docrafts forum there is a weekly challenge. It is run by Clare who also has a blog which you can vist here This weeks challenge is to make a 'New Years card' so thought I would give it a go. I have used my new Forever friends paper which I got for my birthday and the other card stock is from the new colour core range I am really loving this card, because of the colour to the core you can get some really great effects when you sand it down. The eyelets,wire and beads are from Papermania. I also had a go at making my very first stamped image candle I will post a picture tomorrow just waiting for my Pebeo to dry on it.

This is my card I have made for this weeks challenge 'MULT FOLD'. I have used a stamped image that was kindly sent to me, the background effect is done with my cuttlebug and of course I had to have some doodles and faux stitching. The ribbon is what I had as a little gift set from a friend. Thank you for looking I would like to say a big thank you to you all for visting my blog and leaving so many wonderful comments. I have only really been blogging for about seven months, but all ready feel I have made a lot of blogging friends and learnt so much from looking at all your blogs. To think I didn't have a clue what a blog was and how to go about setting one up. Now I know how to upload my pictures, vist other blogs and add links, and posts. I wouldn't have thought that setting my blog up would lead to me being ask to join Becky's new challenge blog but it has I am so exited, can't wait for it to start and see all your wonderful designs. Anyway if I don't get time to post anything until after christmas I just wanted to say hope you all have a wonderful christmas and a very happy new year!!!!

This is my card I have made for this weeks challenge 'Food'. I have used my new Tilda which I brought from bunny zoe's blog. The little cupcake is from a cute companion set of stamps, and the metal flowers are Papermania. I have watercoloured Tilda with pearl paints to give her a nice soft tone, and of couse had to use my cuttlebug for the background effect.

This is my card I have made for this weeks challenge didn't have any Penny Black that were really doing Men's hobbies so went for one of my images I won in a blog candy draw. I have used green 3d paint for the dots that are around the edge and the arrows are to make you think of the wheels going around on the bike. The little message is Cubbly bubbly one and the papers are a freebie from a magazine.

This is my christmas card I have made for this weeks challenge 'christmas is coming' I have used papers from a dcvw paper stack. I used a see d stamp for the tree which I stamped and heat emboosed. The present was one I had in my drawer, the Tilda is the one where she is holding a easter egg so used the present to hide this. I made the red frame and added gold peel off christmas message to decorate it. The second picture I hope shows how I have 3d this card to give a nice depth to the card. Try to keep the card to red,greens and gold tones. Hope you like it I am really please with how it's turned out see as I thought I didn't have any good Tildas to do a christmas card with.
