Ooh new challenge of CAS today starting over at PFP, which you may realise I don't do very well but would like to!  Have to say, I was rather pleased with this, although the flowers may be slightly outside the CAS guidelines! But hey, it's CAS for me!
This gorgeous image is called Cheek to Cheek, of course from Mo's Digital Pencil, and was perfect for some lovely friends of ours who have just got married. The heart border die is from a Marianne Designs  diet set - Stitched Hearts and Accolades (CR1362).
The papers are Tilda and the Love die cut is a Memory Box die(which I've lost since using it!).  The stamped sentiment is from PTI.

My teamies at PFP have totally rocked the CAS theme- check them out here.  Do come and join in our challenge too as you could be the lucky winner of a $21 dollar voucher!!

Beautiful Butterflies challenge at PFP

I do not know where the last two weeks have gone, I really don't!  We had a lovely week last week with two of our nieces visiting with their families, so lovely to see all the little ones!  I feel I've hardly been in my craft room and had a job getting this card made in time, but I scraped in! It's for our new challenge at Passion for Promarkers with a super theme of Beautiful Butterflies chosen by our awesome Coops!
I've used one of the little cuties from 6 Baby Fairies (Girls), I think she looks like a little butterfly, but added a diecut one for good measure!  
I added her onto my card with a piece of acetate to really make her pop off the page, and of course, I had to use my Marianne dies and products, as below:

Spiderweb and Leaf Die set - LR0430
Mushroom  Dies - LR0372
Oak Leaf and Acorn Die set - LR0373
Butterfly - LR0153
Mini Dazzlers
Check out the beautiful butterfly creations of my teamies at PFP here and come and join in our challenge. You could win the fab prize of 3 digi stamps from 2 Cute Ink.

Getting cracking on Christmas - Let's Chill

I've only had time to make one card this week, so I thought I'd better make it count towards that Christmas tally!  And the fabulous Mo is adding tons of new images to her digital stock and I think we can look forward to some fab new Christmas ones!  
I've used Chill here, which was released a few weeks ago, love it, and it comes with the sentiment.  And I received my Marianne DT package this week which came with this fabulous scarf die, a match made in heaven! A full list of my Marianne products are below:
Knitted Scarf Die - LR0439 (and in stock here at Crafts U Love, just  sayin!)
Basic Distressed Squares  Die set - CR1375
Snowflake Die - CR1225 (comes with this hearts die set)
Snowflake Embossing Folder - DF3419
Paper - From a Pretty Paper Bloc set but not sure which one, sorry!

I kept the design reasonably simply as I love let the image do the talking sometimes, and it keeps Christmas postage down!! 
That's it for now folks, thank you so much for popping by!
Hugs, Juliexx
