Dream Valley Challenge 44 - Glitter and Bling!

Oooops! Apologies - I forgot to schedule my post for yesterday so this is a little later than it should be! Sorry!

This is of course my latest DT card for Dream Valley and we're looking a for a little bit of Sparkle and Bling to cheer us up now the weather is cold and the nights are drawing in :-)

I've been in a really Christmassy mood so although I had every intention of sitting down and making a cute little girly card, this Christmas card just kind of happened :-)

I bought some Lili of the Valley die cut, pre-coloured images to help give me a bit of a head start on my Christmas cards as, yet again, I didn't make them during the year as I was supposed to!

I love this ribbon.... :-)

And these snowflakes that I covered in sparkle.....

I hope you can join us with your lovely sparkley creations :-) Please pop over to Dream Valley and check out all the gorgeous glittery creations my team mates have made!

Love 'n' hugs,

Dream Valley Challenge 43 - Halloween


My littl'un, Charlie, and I have had sooo much fun with this weeks challenge at Dream Valley :-) There was no way Charlie was going to leave me in peace to make a card this week so I decided to make my DT offering a little more kid friendly!

Our theme for this challenge is:


Charlie loves helping me bake and it's been ages since I've made "proper" cakes (since I joined Slimming World three months ago I've lost 1 stone 3 pounds!!!) I took inspiration from some cute little biscuits a friend showed me at The Decorated Cookie.  So these are our spooky googly eyed halloween cakes:

Some close-ups.....

The purple and green icing are coloured ready to roll stuff from Hobbycraft and then we drew the eyes on with writing icing. So simple but very cute :-) Unfortunately, I don't think there'll be any left for Halloween so I might just have to make some more!!! What a shame :-)

Anyway, don't forget to pop over to Dream Valley for the fab spooky creations from the rest of the DT!

Love 'n' hugs,
