A-Spare-Chilli For You! Espeically- get it!

(photo not great will try and re-do tomorrow in sunlight!)
Googled some great imags to use on my card for the DCM challenge of Hot and Spicy, and been desperatly trying to think of a caption to go with it, I thought on the lines of hot, hot stuff, or travelling to a hot country, I thought of a play with the word chilli, like just chillin, then just as I was going to give up and use the words 'espcially for you'- I came up with this! A spare-chilli- for you. I originally had a cinamon stick in the centre of the frame, but didnt think it would fit in with my new found phrase!

Buttons & Bows

After having a few days of using up some scrap stash, I decided it was about time I broke free and dipped in some Basic Grey! (I donl;'t owe a lot of it) So it is precious to me! Using the theme set by the Magnolia Blog; of Ribbon I incorporated it into Tilda's hair for her bow and along the side in brown ribbon. I have just noticed that over at CMUtd they have a challenge for ribbons and buttons- cor fancy that! Wander if I can qualify for entry...

Flutterby, Butterfly

Here are a few cards for both the DCM challenges, made the cards, just haven't had the chance to load them on to my blog!

The first is the butterfly challenge: I used butterflies to attach to the ribbon
I revisted one of my first blog cards and revamped it slightly
I wanted to use up some of my scraps and challenged myself to use the same tie and birthday stamp... These are simple cards, but I enjoyed doodlingHere I used more scraps but worked on outlining the pattern, added this pearlescent dragonfly
