Sharing at Path of Positivity

It's time for a new challenge at Path Of Positivity Challenge.  This month we have a theme of sharing.  We are sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs and Limited Runs.




The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:
  • Three images of the winner's choice from Fresh Brewed Designs, one of our guest sponsors this month, for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
  • A $10.00 gift certificate from Limited Runs, one of our guest sponsors this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
There will also be:


  • One digital designer paper (made to order in a couple different ways) from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky person who leaves a comment on the start, midway, pondering or top picks post for Challenge #28.
  • One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge.
For my first card this month, I have used Christmas Carollers from Limited Runs.  The inside sentiment is from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.





I have also used a paper from a paper pad by Rosie's Studio,  I coloured using copic markers.  The die is from Tattered Lace and embellished with Liquid Pearls.


Spots and Dots at Incy Wincy Designs

The new theme for the challenge at Incy Wincy Designs this week is Spots and Dots.  The challenge is sponsored by Dr Digi's House of Stamps.  I have used the image called Bath Time Deidery.



I have used a spotty paper from Kaisercraft for the background.  The glittery circle is cut from glitter cardstock from DCWV using a Spellbinders die.  Colouring of the image is with copic markers, Liquid Pearls(hat) and Glossy Acccents (water).  I also added some pearls coloured with copic marker BG23.

When I first printed this image out I didn't think I'd ended up working with a pink colour scheme!

Making A Cake

I have used nice bright summery colours for this card - partly because it is so bleak here at the moment (I'm sick of the cold of winter!).  I also associate baking with summer time as that is when I feel more enthused to bake.
