GDT Card Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes


This is my last GDT card for Crafting from the Heart but I have some exciting news to share - from July I'm going to be a permanent part of the Design Team!!  A big thank you to the ladies on the team for having me as your GDT and for asking me to join you from July.

This challenge is, as always, 'anything goes' and you can find all the details about the challenge here on the main challenge blog.

The challenge is sponsored by:

For my card I've used a digi from QKR Stampede called 'Birdhouse' which you can find here on their website.  I've made a 'new home' card using a sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - 'anything goes'

New from Card Creations Plus - Fuzzy Buddies Christmas



This is one of the DT cards I made using the new 'Fuzzy Buddies Christmas' CD from Card Creations Plus which was featured on Create and Craft last week.  It's a great CD - there's some traditional elements on there as well as the Fuzzy Buddies cute characters.

There are some ready to print images on the CD and also a great image creator - a range of backgrounds, characters and other objects which you can use to make up your own scenes.  You can flip the elements, make them bigger or smaller and move them around as much as you want.

This is one of the images I created using the different elements on the CD and I also used the backing paper generator to make a design which matches the image.

The CD is available here on the Card Creations Plus website.  

If you like the Card Creations Plus CDs, make sure you 'like' our new Design Team Facebook page here.  

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles - '12 months of Christmas link up'
Completely Christmas - 'anything goes'

I've used a very sweet digi from StampArt by Kathryne for my card - it's called 'Owl-Ways Yours' and you can find it here on her website.  I've embossed the background with a Crafts-Too dot folder and used a sentiment stamp from Clearly Besotted.
