The papers are from the freebie download from Funky Hand. Speaking of Funky Hand there's still time to join in with the latest Get Funky Challenge.
There's plenty of ideas and inspiration from the fabby Polka Doodles DT and I've taken my inspiration from the mega talented Kath and made a swing card. Never made one before so it was certainly a challenge for me, but so pleased with myself that I've mastered it now, with the help of several tutorials on youtube and a template from Split Coast Stampers lol!
I've used the Polka Doodles Sugar Birdies CD for the backing paper, and a Melissa Frances rubon for the sentiment, some faux stitching and added some ribbon and a butterfly charm. Difficult to photograph well, my photos are a bit wonky, it looks much better in action! Tfl xx
Hoping you can join us this week and looking forward to seeing what you come up with, if you need some inspiration be sure to check out the DT creations. Tfl xx
Just added some distressing, embossing and stitching to liven things up a bit.
Another fabby sketch from the lovely Carol and a great prize up for grabs. Just made it by the skin of my teeth, the weeks fly by so fast I thought I had another week to go! So I'll keep it short otherwise I won't get it linked up in time.

For my DT card I've made a double pocket card. I got the fold from a tutorial on Youtube.
I made my own template for the flower. It's based on the nestabilities blossom die, takes a bit of time and patience cutting it out, but much cheaper! The papers were a freebie download too (Mindy Terasawa) and the button I made with Fimo, so all in all an inexpensive card! Tfl xx
Well, I've made this handbag card and matching gift card wallet, but I'm just reading the challenge details again and I think I should have used the Candy Doodles cd, oh well I'm going to enter it now anyway, it's been one of those weeks for me, lots of mishaps and not much creativity flowing, so I won't be surprised if I've got it wrong! I enjoyed making it anyway.
Be sure to check out the DT and GD creations there'll be plenty of inspiration to get you in the christmas mood and playing along. We all love visiting your blogs to see your creations.
The prize (chosen by random generator) this week is a fabby card kit from Dream Designs.
Papers: BG Dasher, DCWV Jewel Cardstock Stack

I've used the sketch to create a 'Sketch' book, no more searching around for scraps of paper, all my sketches in one place!
The papers are from the 'Funky Daze' CD. For the front and back cover I created my own template and printed the Funky Hand design straight on to sturdy card and cut around the template.
