You're a Star


Morning All. First up, I'd like to say a big 'Hellio' to my new followers. :)

Monday morning and time for another double DT card from me, can you believe it's been two weeks since the last one? No, me neither.

Over at Cupcake, my Cherie Gateau, Delphine has chosen Bookworm (I think the teacher in her is coming out!) as our theme. You could use an image showing a book, someone reading something or even a bookmark.

We are lucky enough to be joined by our regular sponsors; Crafty Emma's Store and Crafts U Love.


This is the fab sketch that Angie has created for us to play with this time over at Sketch n Stash. I've rotated it, as that worked better for me and you are welcome to do the same, so long as we can recognise the basic elements of the sketch. Don't forget to tell us about your new and/ or old, neglected stash. My old stash are the star dies. I've had them for a while, but I use them a lot. I luuurve stars. Can you tell?!

Sketch n Stash are being sponsored by Stamp & Create and Kenny K, who are both offering very generous prizes.

But don't take my word for it, head over to Cupcake and Sketch n Stash for the full details and to see the wonderful creations all my talented Teamies have made to inspire you.

Otherwise, have a great week, see you soon! :)

Oh dear, I've missed soooo much! I really must catch up, but my bed is calling....
Anyhow, this is a super fun card and such a great challenge! I really hope I can play as I have the perfect Kraftin Kimmie image, uninked too, but ummm, it promises to be a muy busy week around mi casa.....will have to see....

I see you are fitting right in with the Sundae girls over there. I recently purchased that cupcake cutie and really must ink her up! Hope to catch up soon!
