Birthday Month...

over at SCD this month. Can't believe that "my little baby" lol, is nearly a year old!

To celebrate we have some fab things lined up:-
Each week we have a special guest designer joining us and we will have weekly blog candy to give away too - each week everyone's name will be added to the "hat" and will be in with a chance of winning the monthly stash -which believe me, is well worth entering....(piccies to follow!) the only critieria is that you make themed pieces solely for SCD - multiple entries will not be eligible for the win!

So, without further ado whats the challenge and theme this month/week?

To celebrate our birthday month we are returning to:-


these were our very first challenge and we thought it would be apt to revisit them....a Twinchie is a 2"x2" piece of craft....

This week, to kick us off...the very talented Gez has chosen the theme of "Butterflies" - and the GD this week is the lovely Zoe, take a trip and visit her gorgeous blog - she has also written a bio which is on the SCD blog...Zoe has also kindly donated this weeks prize of a plate of Tanda stamps - which the winner can choose! so a massive Thank you to Zoe for donating those!

Here is my Butterfly Twinchie

background card and a piece of white paper were coloured using distress inks. The background was overstamped with a T!m Holtz stamp. Using the coloured paper I punched out butterfly's and adhered them to the base, gems were added to create a body. Little butterflies were stamped and hi-lighted using glossy accents. The word butterfly is computer generated and hi-lighted using glossy accents. The edges were doodles and hi-lighted with gold dauber.

Pop on over to the SCD blog and see what the other DT'ers have come up with. Can't wait to see all your Butterfly Twinchies.

Just to let you know that I won't be able to comment this weekend as I'm going to be enjoying my Christmas Present - a weekend at the "Artsycrafts" weekend! how lucky am I?

see you all Sunday night!!
