Times Up!

Have you ever needed to make a card really quickly or didn't want to spend a lot of time making your card?
 Well, at Meljens we are having a "Times Up" Challenge!
 To participate, you have to make a card in 30 minutes.
I got a new Silhouette Cameo for Christmas and have been having a lot of fun playing so I thought I would use it to make my card this time.
The image I used for this Challenge is called Birthday comes Precoloured! Woohoo! If you are not comfortable colouring or really don't have time...these are the images for you! Melissa has a whole range of them so go to her website and have a peek. Then, make a 30 minute card of your own and join in our Challenge for this week at:
 Enjoy Creating!

DT Day with Sue

To start off the new year I thought I would do a Birthday card for my first DT Day of 2014.
 I chose the image called Cuddle Bun Baby. Now, you may think that this is a baby card image but this digi is very versatile because you can use it for almost anything!- Birthday, Baby, Children, Grandma, a Hug etc.
I used cardstock and Laughing Lola papers from CTMH, Pleated Trim from Bazzill Basics, and embellishments and ribbon from my stash. I coloured the image with Copics.
 So go to Meljens  and get Cuddle Bun Baby or search for images that you can use for multiple uses. Really, there are tons!
