Double Design Team Post

Ooh eck how have I managed this? I normally plan my DT projects for Monday so that I get one on each blog, not this week! So I'm sorry but it's two for one today to save me doing two posts. I would but it's my wedding anniversary today and after a hard slog at a car boot sale this morning I have wine and a takeaway to look forward too with Hubby. We've made it to seven years without an itch!! Actually we've been together for 15 years now and married for seven of them. Anyway, getting on with it.....Let's start with Cupcake Craft Challenge being as I set the theme this week. It's to use a digi image or sentiment on your project. I made these thank you cards:

The patterned papers and floral image are both digis from Pink Petticoat. I couldn't make just one, never can with thank you cards!

I'm entering the challenge at Pollycraft with these as the theme is 'add a little nature'.

OK - now pretend you're reading a new post now............

This week at Die Cut Dreams our challenge is Soft Shades of Vintage! Now me and vintage don't always go so well together, but I'm getting more used to it (I think!) and came up with this:

I used the sweet image from CC Designs and shaded her with Copics and cut her out. The paper and ribbon are both K&Co I think. A few matching pearls to finish, feel they're necessary with vintage for some reason!

With this one I'm joining in with:
Right, tea to make for the boys then baths and bed (eventually) and me and Hubby have a gift of some champagne, I think a takeaway and a film or something!
