Magnolia Vs Candy to be won!

We have some exciting and sad news...
The sad news is Tilda & Co / Sarah Kay Challenges are no more, unfortunately there has had to be some changes. Donna has needed to merge both the blogs together to free some time up for herself.
The good news is we have a brand new challenge blog Magnolia Vs Stampavie. We hope you will join in the challenge each Sunday (as before) The blog is now partnered with Stampaive so you can use Magnolia Stamps, Sarah Kay Stamps and any other stamp made by Stampaive including the ever so lovely Rachelle Anne Miller Designs (these must be the ones made for Stampavie – check out the list on the challenge blog if you're not sure which stamps can be used). The blog will go live on Sunday with the first challenge on Sunday.
Donna has given us some fab Blog Candy for each DT member to give out which she has kindly donated from her craft store Crafty Krafts

So you like what you see in the photo? Want to get your hands on this yummy candy? This is what you need to do:
Firstly please only enter one candy draw – there are 5 DT members and 5 lots of Candy up for grabs, but only one entry per person. The candy is open to all, and Donna will post worldwide. You have until Saturday 1st November 10pm to enter.
1. Place a link to the new Blog on your blog, you can grab a Logo here
2. Post about the new challenge blog on your blog and link to it
3. Leave a comment on the new challenge blog with a link to your post and mention which DT candy you have entered.
Each candy is different so it's important to state which draw you have entered. Donna will then use a random number counter on Sunday and go through all the Designers blog comments and choose one winner from all the entries on that blog. We are looking forward to you joining in with the challenges on the new blog.

PTW Katharina's Sketch #13

Over at PTW this week the challenge is to follow another of Katherina's wonderful sketches. I am still behind with my Christmas cards and seized the opportunity. These are the new papers from DCWV. I am slightly disappointed with this years Christmas stacks. The colours seem to be a bit washed out and dull. Not what I usually expect from DCWV.

I Used:
Paper - DCWV
Cardstock - Papermania
Brads - Papermania
Snowman Stamp - Sugar Nellie - Home Grown
Sentiment Stamps - Stamps Away

Tilda & Co challenge 40 ~Tabbed Sketch~

Over at the Tilda & Co challenge blog this week there is a fab sketch to follow. Here is my take.

I just have to mention that I bought a mystery box of crafting goodies from Crafty Krafts the other day and I recommend that you buy one, so many beautiful products at an unbelievable price!
I Used:
Paper - Basic Grey
Cardstock - Papermania
Rub Ons- Out of my mystery box from Crafty Krafts
Clip - Making Memories

Sarah Kay challenge *Week 15* Doodles

The challenge on the Sarah Kay blog this week is to include some doodling on your project (not really a forte of mine). I thought that I would make a monochrome card this week as I haven't made one in ages.Apologies for the complete lack of posts, my old computer finally gave up the ghost. Panic doesn't even come close to describing it. I am in utter disarray. I have all my addresses, pictures, watermarks and url's still on the old hard-drive. I am not used to this operating system or the flatscreen monitor. Hopefully I will get there.

I used:
Paper - DCWV
Cardstock - Bazzill
Flowers - Poppicrafts
Buttons- Local Craft Shop
Hearts - Making Memories
