Thank you all for your interest in my DT call, I've not made any cards for my blog over the past 2 days as I've been enjoying myself looking over the lovely blogs of all the ladies that have applied to my DT call.
Wow it was a tough decision to make with so many lovely talented ladies applying to join the Die cut Dreams Christmas Club Challenge and I wanted to chose you all but unfortunately that wasn't possible, but instead of choosing just one new DT as I first planned I made the decision to add 2 new Designers to my Die cut Dreams Christmas Club Challenge team and the 2 very Talented girls are ..................
Sara
Becca
Congrats & Welcome to the team, please email me when you get time and I'll let you in the DT blog and introduce you to the team

Think Pink for Christmas

Hi girls......... I made this card with some papers from a beautiful book of Designer paper sent to me as a gift from my lovely friend Corry aka Wheeza I love them all but this is my favourite with the beautiful pink roses and golden cherubs, I thought it was perfect for a pink Christmas card.
Don't you just love this new Tilda she was crying out to be colours with a soft shade of pink and I added so fine glitter over her dress to add some sparkle.
I also used my SU corner punch to cut some metallic gold icicle patterned card and 2 different MS snowflake punches and an MS leaf punch to cut the gold leaves that I arranged amongst the pink roses, I also glittered the roses before adding the pink glass pearl pin.
I ribbon/lace I bought from eBay.
And lastly to add the finishing touch I stamped and heat embossed the gold Christmas sentiment from SU.
I have entered in to these challenges;
Just Magnolia challenge Think Pink
ABC challenge G for Glitter
Simon says challenge Punch Em'
CCC Challenge Punch
Stampavie Challenge Christmas
Spoonful of Sugar challenge Punch
Totally Gorjuss Challenge Sparkle
Papertake weekly challenge Bright & Sparkly

Hi girls I made this card especially for the All that Scrap Magnolia Challenge where the theme this month is "Make a Christmas Scene" and you also need to leave a crafting tip as a comment over there when you post your creation.
For my card I stamped on imaginsce Cottage Christmas DP in SU white ink with 2 different Magnolia Christmas tree stamps and the large trees I added Art institute ultra fine transparent crystal glitter to make them sparkle for my snowy scene, I then distressed the paper edges.
Then I tore a piece of white Bazzill card to make the snow covered floor for Tilda to stand on, I coloured Rowdy Tilda with copics and glittered her wings and snowball.
The sentiment stamp I used is from SU and the holly I cut with a quickutz die.
To add the finishing touch I put a MAMBI crystal gem in each corner and added a silver snowflake charm on a paper clip with a twist of red organza ribbon.
