Lily-Boo & By The Cute & Girly February Challenges

Well it is that time again, the 1st of the month. So for all you lovely people that like their challenges this means that there are new ones out there for you in blogland the first being Lily-Boo. This month we were asked to use a recipe of 1 Tag an 1 Ribbon and with this in mind I set about doing a new baby card using one of Sam's new image sheets that can be found here. You have until 28th February to get your entries in, and don't forget, you can win 2 Lily-Boo sets of your choice. You are not limited to using Lily-Boo images but we would love it if you did as it is always nice to see how others find inspiration when using them, but equally it doesn't matter if you don't.

My second card is for the By the Cute & Girly where this month's challenge is LOVE. I made this card using the new Deco Folies CD from My Craft Studio. This is one of the pre-made cards on the CD which is great when those all too busy times get in your way of crafting. It really is a lovely CD and has some fantastic images that remind me of those very expensive cards that you can buy in the card shops, and also my Mum's favourites. I added some stickles on her hat and added a sentiment.

I hope you will all join us again this month as we love to see what you all come up with. The great thing about this challenge blog is that you can produce any creation you like and are not limited to just cards. It's a good job the rest of the DT girls are so talented as, if it was left to me you would be very dissapointed. I am hopeless at anything other than cards lol. I can't go round corners so knitting is out and my needlework is horrendous (my mum had to finish my exam project for school but I never told her it was my exam, mind you she got 10/10 so I think this helped her to not kill me when she found out).

Hope you have enjoyed looking and I will hopefully be back soon with some more creations.
