Delightful Challenges! Celebrate! (Our Last Challege)

Welcome to another Delightful Challenge. Sadly, this is the last challenge for Delightful Challenges, as it was decided to close the challenge site to devote more time to Digital Delights by Louby Loo designs.

Digital Delights by Louby Loo will NOT be going anywhere and will continue to bring you fun and exciting daily posts and new designs.

The DT wish to thank everyone who has joined in our weekly challenges and hope that you will all stop by each week and see all the amazing designs on the digital delights blog and at www.digitaldelightsbyloubyloo.com

And personally, I'd like to thank the other DT ladies and all at Digital Delights by Louby Loo, for an amazing few months, working with you all. It's been a blast!

The Challenge at Delightful Challenges this week is Celebrate! And we're sponsered by out own Digital Delights by Louby Loo!



I got to play with the brilliant, Celebration Clock!



I went all gold for this card, with papers from the Gilded Winter paper pack layered on gold card. I used a gold pen to colour the image lightly and added a few gold pearls. Gold, Gold, all the Gold to celebrate the new year!

Delightful Challenges, Bundle Up!

The Challenge at Delightful Challenges this week is Bundle Up!, Winter Theme! And we're sponsered by The Robins Nest!



I got to play with the brilliant, Pickles the Penguin!



I used papers from Krafty Christmas, layered on red card, cutting the snowflake paper on my cameo. I used my cameo to cut pickles as well, before colouring him with my promarkers and added some twine and a few gems as a finishing touch. (shocking for me I know! lol)

Delightful Challenges, Twinkle, Twinkle!

The Challenge at Delightful Challenges this week is Twinkle, Twinkle, (add something sparkly)! And we're sponsered by Scrappy Land!



I got to play with the brilliant, Stocking Cat! And a sentiment from the Christmas Hugs!



I used papers a forever friends stack I got in papercraft essentials magazine a year or two ago - trying to dig into some of my olders papers too! lol! Layered it up on a red card base and coloured stocking cat with my promarkers. I added glitter glue (unfortunately a bit hard to see in the picture!) and gems for sparkle and a bit of twine for added interest.

Celebrate



Because I've been almost all about Christmas cards lately, I thought I'd do a birthday card to break up the visions of sugarplums dancing in my head!

And it was an excellent excuse to use both this gorgeous image I won from Kenny K a week or two ago and some new papers I picked up last week, The Black Currant Stack, from DCWV. The image immediately made me think of Catherine Zeta Jones in Chicago and the song, All that Jazz! And I already know just who I'll be sending it too, as I have a friend with a birthday in Feb, that I think will really love it!

I cut a card base in deep purple, coloured the image, with my trusty promarkers and got very excitable cutting flourishes, feathers, corners and sentiment with my silhouette (*whispers* I still get very excited every time I get to use it!). Layered up lots of the gorgeous papers with black card and added some paper flowers and gems to embellish it. I'm going to have to make a box envelope to fit it! Oh dear, I shall have to use my silhouette again ;)

Studly Christmas



I made this card for a friend of mine, one of the xmas pressies I'm giving her, is a pair of stud earrings and I know she'll see the funny side of this!

I used Echo Park papers, from the Holly Jolly Christmas pack I got a couple of years ago and layered it on Stampin' Up real red card. The image was coloured with my promarkers, the sentiment computer generated and I added a few green gems and some glitter glue to give it a bit of sparkle!

And this is the inside!

please sir, can I have s'more?



Because I can't resist a good pun! Or a bad one! lol! And becase CASology's cue card for the week is 'EAT'



I cut the s'more on my silhouette and printed the sentiment. I used a kraft card base and because I couldn't help myself, added a few little pearls. Took more time waiting for the s'more to cut than anything else, lol!

A nice CAS card today, for the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. I used a freebie stamp I got from Quick Cards magazine, (last year? the year before? ish? lol!) and coloured it with my promarkers. Cut a red base card, matted the image on green and added twine, a button and gems to finish it off.
