SOMEONE SPECIAL ...
{Only someone Special can make Ordinary moments seem Extraordinary.}

{DT Project Lady Anne's Paper Crafts: Challenge #6 - Friday Sentiments}

Trust you all had a fabulous Christmas with your loved ones and that everyone is looking forward to 2013. 

Our theme for the next fortnight Challenge over at Lady Anne's Paper Crafts' Monthly Friday Sentiments Challenge is Anything Goes (but always have a sentiment).  How much easier can you get.  So I really hope you will play along.

The cute little bear 'Chocolate Kisses" is from QKR and you can purchase him here.    I have coloured him with H2O's and dry chalks.  Another centre step card design and I tried making these circle pin wheels for the first time and they turned out to be nice and easy, but quite effective I think.  The sentiment is a freebie from the talented Sharon - A Piece of my Heart and you can find it here.  The design papers are from BasicGrey.

Looking forward to seeing you play along over at Lady Anne's Friday Sentiment Challenge #6.  The Challenge ends on 24 January 2013..


 

I would love to try the following challenges with this:

Debby from A Scrapjourney is hosting a "My 5 Favourite Christmas Card of 2012" challenge.  It was not too hard for me to choose my favourite 5, as I did not make a huge number of Christmas Cards this year, but here are my 5 favourite picks:

No.1 - Using the Christmas Wreath Digi from DigiDarlas: You will find the original post for this card here:
 No.2 - Using the Special Delivery Digi from QKR: You will find the original post for this card here:
 No.3 - Using Christmas Kitties from  Eureka: You will find the original post for this card here:


No.4 - Using the Christmas Robin digi from DigiStamps4Joy: You will find the original post for this card here:
No.5 - Using the Santa's Helper digi from DigiStamps4Joy: You will find the original post for this card here:

  1. Desire, you have the most awesome cards, love these you have chosen. when I look at your cards I just want to go and make the same but time doesn't always allow me to get so creative...I really must try harder in the new year. At the mo looking after my dad 24/7 takes most of my time...BUT, your blog is here for me for that push of inspirations....luv annie xx

  52. Loving this card! I think the bear is so cute and colored to perfection. I have dry chalks but I haven't used them in forever. Going to have to pull them out again and give them a try. Thanks so much for choosing one of my sentiments for this lovely card. I'm always so honored because you do such a great job displaying them.
