The East Wind New Release Aurora Kitty Trand

Good Morning and welcome to another new release from me for The East Wind. I actually inadvertently signed myself up to do two new release images this month, but I loved both, so just another excuse for more fun colouring and crafting!

Today's new release is called Aurora Kitty Trand and I just love the cute cat ears and earring peeking out behind her hair. Such a gorgeous image. I would usually use the colours of my own cat, Tallulah, for a card like this, but as she is a Blue British Shorthair and a grey-purple-blue colour, I decided to just go with some pretty patterned papers as my colour combo as I have no papers to match Tallulah's fur!

My Besties New Release Twinkle Toe Trolls I Love Cupcakes

Good afternoon and welcome to my DT post for one of the new releases from Sherri Baldy's My Besties Twinkle Toe Trolls Collection. I do apologise that this post is late, but I have had parents' evenings at school this week and finished late both nights and in between fell asleep almost as soon as I had finished my dinner! It is exhausting meeting with parents non stop after working a whole day and having no break at all for almost 7 hours!

Anyway...here is my card using the adorable I Love Cupcakes (Scan 0056). I went for a blueberry and lemon cupcake and just love these colours together. They were hard to match patterned papers to though, but I think the purples do work well with the colours of the image.

Sherri Baldy My Besties New Release Christmas Troll

Good Morning and welcome to some exciting news from me. A little while ago I was invited to join Sherri Baldy's New Release team and here is my very first DT project. The My Besties range was one of the first digi stamps I came across when I first discovered digi stamps and loved them, so was super excited to be asked to join the team.

This cute image is called Christmas Troll (Scan 0047) and I paired her up with my new Christmas papers from Stampin' Up. Isn't she just adorable?!

Di's Digi Designs Challenge Add A Sentiment

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from Di's Digis. This fortnight our challenge is a really easy one - we want you to add a sentiment to your project. I used the adorable Boil and Toil Mice for my card to add another Hallowe'en card to my collection (I have plenty to post out to all my crafty friends now!) and just had to use the Shakespeare quote from Macbeth as it just fit this image perfectly. I'm not a fan of Shakespeare as such, but I do love Macbeth!

Ching-Chou Kuik October Challenge Halloween/Something Spooky

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from Ching-Chou Kuik. This month our challenge is Hallowe'en or something spooky. I'm sure you have probably noticed recently that I have been making a fair few Hallowe'en cards! I love Hallowe'en, but it's just a shame that it's not really celebrated that much here in the UK. It's getting bigger, but nowhere near as big as it is in the USA!

Anyway here is my card for this month's challenge using the fabulous Pick A Pumpkin. I used some of my last few bits of patterned papers that I got from Kraftin' Kimmie last month and added a cute pumpkin charm too.
