Glitter Geeks DT - Flower Power

This week is my first week as a Design Team Member for The Glitter Geeks.  I am so excited to be part of their team, be sure to pop over and take a look at the rest of the DT.

For my first challenge the theme is Flower Power!  As most of you will know i love to put flowers on my cards, so this was right up my street.
Joanna Sheen

We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen who has kindly offered the winner a £10 voucher for her online store!  ( i wish i could enter!)
I decided to use this Magnolia Tilda, i love Tilda but due to the cards i make for my other DT's i don't use them too often.  I coloured her with promarkers and chalked the edges with some papermania chalks.  The paper is from First Edition, Dessert Bloom pad i think.

 The border was punched from a border punch from EK Success.  The swirl i got from ebay.
 The flowers are from Crafty Emmas Store and Wild Orchid Crafts as are the pins.  I added some white glitter to make them sparkle.
Here is a close up of Tilda.

Thank you for looking and be sure to pop over to Glitter Geeks!

2 DT Cards, some news and a Freebie!

Afternoon everyone, it is a beautiful sunny day here in the west midlands, you wouldn't know it was October!!
I have one card for 2 DT's today.  As most of you will know i am a team member on Incy Wincy Designs and The Crazy Challenge, well October is the month for Breast Cancer Awareness and both teams are having the theme of THINK PINK!  and they are both sponsored by my wonderful team mate at Incy Wincy Nikki who owns Limited Runs Digital Stamps. Well, at The Crazy Challenge our sponsor for this week let us down at the last minute and Nikki was kind enough to step in for me so a HUGE THANK YOU TO NIKKI!!

Breast Cancer is something that is very close to my heart, as one of my family members was diagnoised with it in June, so i thought about my card long and hard when i made it.

I wanted to keep this card simple but effective.  The image is coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The mirri pink card was in my stash and the glitter card is from a pack of Create and Craft card from Wilkinson.  I did mean to add an embossed panel but i forgot!!  The white ribbon was in my stash as was the pink.  To make the breast cancer ribbon i just looped it and put a brad through.  The white pearls in the corner are Anitas 3D dimensional paint.  The flowers are from Crafty Emmas Store and Wild Orchid Crafts.  The card blank is from a pack of 3 from every crafts a pound.  The 'hope' ribbon is a freebie that Nikki is giving away.
Please be sure to pop over and say thank you to her!!

And now for my exciting news!  I have been asked to join the Glitter Geeks DT!!

I am truly honoured and can't wait to get started with them!
