It's Celebration Time!

Good morning everyone! Hope you are all just fine and dandy! I am because today sees the start of a new challenge at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:


yes that's right any card or project that is related to a celebration - that could mean wedding, birth, birthday, anniversary, driving test, graduation, christening the list is endless!  I have decided to go with none of these but instead decided on a theme closer to our friends across the water's hearts.  As we have all been caught up with our Jubilee celebrations it is now the turn of our American friends to celebrate their 4th July (independence from the UK - lol) so I have done a card for the 4th July - don't know who I will give it to lol!!

I have used the very patriotic USA Myrtle the Turtle digital image from Digital Delights.  She has been coloured with my Copics and a touch of Prismas.  The papers are digital also available here from Digital Delights.  The ticket sentiment is also from Wendy from Digital Delights - these tickets are fab because they come with differenet sentiments on and also some blank ones for you to put your own words in!!  I have used my Spellbinders Edgeabilities for the postage stamp border and my Nesties for the mat and layering.  The stars are from my MFT Dienamics star die and I have used holographic mirri card and glitter card for them.  I have used another layout from Sketch 'n Stash - loving these sketches!!

Our sponsors this week are:

The fabulous Joanna Sheen and they have very kindly donated a £10 store voucher to the lucky winner!! So remember - you have to be in it to win it! This shouldn't be too difficult at the challenge incorporates so many different things - get your creative hats on and if you need any inspiration just pop over to Delightful Challenges and see what the rest of the super talented DT have come up with!!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch 'N Stash - Sketch No 3 (Stash Star Dies and Edgeability Dies, Mirri card, glitter card)

Digital Tuesday - Amazing Animals
Shopping our Stash - Red White and Blue or Patriotic (Stash mirri card, glitter card, star dies and border)
