I'm still under the weather but fingers crossed will start getting back to my wee self this week! I'm missing visiting your wee blogs, but with my bro being here (whoop whoop) just so tired!!
Thanks for the lovely comments and get well messages oh and all the wee blog prizes I've won recently! Will try and get organised this week!
I thought it would be fab to use groups of me and my hubby childhood pictures and one from our wedding to show how "Life's Journey" brought us together!
I used some K and Co papers and added the black swirls the lots of glitter to them. Grouped the pictures and added gems where the swirls would be! I made our Wedding pic and we pocket for my text panel. Added ribbon and flowers from my stash to finish.
Hope you'll join us this week as the lovely Mandy has a fab prize up fro grabs! So get your pics out and get typing!

Its my first card made for Creative Card Crew, I'm so excited hee! This week the theme is "Sparkle and Shine" and our sponsor is the fab Digi Shack. I used the cute wee Coffee Dog image, so cute hee!
I used my yummy new Dovecraft "Piece of Cake" papers layered with some pale pink papers from my Large Costco kit. I added some of my gemstones scraps run through my Sizzix for embossed dots. Coloured the wee image with my promakers, added gloss to the nose and mug. Finished with loads of glitter and some wee buttons from my stash.
I hope you will join us this week and get some "sparkle" on your creations! Check out my lovely Dt's creations for more inspiration and join in the fun this week!

This is my wee take on the theme. I used my Papermaina Summer Bloom papers layered with dark green card form the Papermill. Stamped my rose stamp twice (it was in the docraft goody bag a while back), coloured one with my Promarkers and left the other plain. Made wee "spotlights" with my nesties layered with the same dark green card! Added a wee pounced butterfly with gems and finished with a wee sentiment!
Hope you like my wee take on a "Spotlight" card and it gives you the encouragement to try something new! Check out the other Dt's for more inspiration and hopefully join in our wee challenge!

For me simplicity is one picture and mostly white/block colour background! Nothing fussy so you can really just see the picture in all its glory hee!
I used my plain card from the papermill and my Papermania pattern papers to make my wee layout! Picking the colour from my hair for the colour theme itself. used my Martha Stewart punches added some ribbon, doodlebug letters and gems from my stash.
Hope this gives you some ideas for our theme this week? Check out my fellow Dt's blogs for more fabby inspiration!

The papers are form Sarah Hurley Woodland Whimsies and they are just so fab hee! I used my nesties for the circle and scallops, my wee Daisy punch and ribbon from stash! the bobbypin is an extra large one that I'd never use!
What do you think?? I was thinking of the big paperclips I've seen people use and thought this would work the same hee!
