DT creation and Candy news

CANDY NEWS - check back tomorrow as it's 'going live'!

Right this week at Creative Card Crew we are asking you to Doodle on your creations. The Design Team have come up with some inspiring ideas so please pop over and take a peek. Our sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe's Crafts who are offering a fabulous rubber stamp to the lucky winner.

I've made this hot chocolate sachet gift holder, I got the instructions here. It's really quite simple to make out of one piece of card (I printed both sides).

My doodling might be a bit difficult to spot at first - all the white scalloped squares on this project started off as plain white card, I have stamped the sentiments and the rest is doodling to match the fabulous patterned papers from Pink Petticoat. I braved it by trying my hand at coloured doodling for the first time.

I'm joining in with these challenges:

I used this gorgeous stamp from Sugar Nellie, shaded with Copics and highlighted with Glamour Dust, she's sat on the window inside the box too, guarding the hot chocolate!
For my doodling I used a letraset black liner pen and Galaxy markers. I tried to imitate the fairy lights paper and some faux stitching too. The sentiment on the front of the box is from a Martha Stewart set and the inside one is CC Designs. Hot chocolate is Cadbury's!!! Just noticed the photos don't really show the box very well, looks a bit flat but it is a box I promise! Finally I have to thank Jo and Gracie for this lovely award.
