Joanna Sheen & Cute Card Thursday GDT!

Good Morning!
I shall warn you now that this is a rather long post as I have 2 cards to share with you today! The first is for our very first Challenge over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog and the second is for Cute Card Thursday as they have asked me to be a Guest Designer for December!!!

So as I mentioned it is the first every challenge over at Joanna Sheen and to start it off we have a nice & easy challenge for you that fits perfectly for this month ... Christmas Wishes! I made my card rather simpler than usual as I wanted to keep most of the focus on the stamped image.

This fits the Challenges at:

Congratulations hun!!!

Also as I mentioned before I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for December over at CUTE CARD THURSDAY! I always try to join in with their challenges when I can so it was a lovely suprise when they asked be to be a Guest DT for them :)
My first Challenge card is for today's Challenge of Number! Where they would like you to have a Number / Age on your card! I decided to make a 1st Birthday card.
To make the '1' I painted a chipboard letter with white then metallic paint, sprinkled it with glitter and then completed it by covering with 3D Gloss.

This fits the Challenges at:

Copic Ciao Markers - C1, C3, E21, E31, E33, R11, R20
