Mine is next on the list then go to ....   

If for any reason you get lost just go back to the beggining and start again .  This is my first ever blog hop so i hope i have done everything right ,  and you guys have lots of fun .....

My cards for the DT challenge are these 2 ,  i coloured in 4 of these images , all different , but a friend called and saw them and wanted them all , i told her she could have 2 so she took them before i could get a picture of them .... Here is what i had left to show you guys . the top card is coloured with Promarkers in purple/lilac and black all the papers and embellishmenmts from my stash ,  the large flower on the top card i made from white cardstock ,  but the others are from a purchase from Ebay ,  i finished this card off with a double bow of black and purple ribbon .

The 2nd card was also coloured with Promarkers , again papers from stash , the red on this card was an envelope i cut down and used a Martha Stewert punch along the edge . I cut 3 x 2-1/2 inch scallop circles from the same envelope used 2 white side up and the 3rd red facing , the greeting was from stash as was the pearls .  I really liked working with these images , they were fun to colour , and no matter what colours you used they all turned out really nice ......

Well its taken me 2 days to write all this so i will stop rambling now ,  and let you all get on with the blog hop ....dont forget have fun , ....Hugs Sue xx

2 lovely cards! I love the grey-scaled color scheme and design on the first one. For the second one I think the red spotted paper is just perfect as background


Both of your cards are lovely! The flowers in the 2nd one you have coloured in so well they look real!

Hello Sue! Thanks for stopping by, aw that is so strange you were having a hard time trying to get to my blog.. Well at least you did now... Are you still on the old blogger interface? Perhaps that could be the issues too. I had so many problems until I switched over using Google Chrome and I'm running smoothly...
BTW - love both your cards.... great images and awesome details....
Enjoy your weekend~
