Dieing For A Challenge

Happy Thursday Everyone,

I cannot believe the weather we're having, it's absolutely gorgeous. Today I've got two posts again for you, I don't know what's happening to me, lol. I was dead pleased today to see I came in the Top 3 at 'Lilies Little Fairies', and yesterday I saw that I won the prize for week number two on the LOTV Ideas To Inspire National Craft Month Challenge, phew.

Here's the first of my cards, it's for the new challenge blog from Dies to Die for, and the challenge blog is Dieing For A Challenge, this is their second challenge, and I've only just found it. It's a monthly challenge, and you have to have a Dies to Die For product on there, which is easy seeing as though I spend a small fortune there, lol!

The challenge this month is Blue and Brown. I've used Elisabeth Bell's 'Sunkissed' Little Cottage Cutie from Whimsey Stamps, from Dies to Die For. I've coloured her in with Distress Inks, and added a few liquid pearls and glamour dust.

The striped brown paper is from Inkido, again from Dies to Die for, this is absolutely gorgeous, if like me you love Pion and Maya Road you will need to get some of this. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and Ive used a Martha Stewart Punch.

The Swedish Oval Cheery Lynn Die is also from Dies to Die for. In all honesty, I don't think I ever make a card that doesn't have something on from Dies to Die for, lol!!

I'm off now to do my second post, and then an hour of colouring before I pick my cherubs up from school.
