cute,vintage and shabby chic

Hi guys,hope you are all well,I have been keeping my self busy over the last few days to take my mind off things,and here are some cards I have made,the first one is for my DT teamie alysha,who is haveing a challenge on her blog using the digi she provided can be a card,atc,anything you like so this is what I made,

Image coloured with my polychrome pencils,used my edge dies to create the sides,then matted and layered onto various card stock then added some acetate covered with some snow.Then finished with a  message,and snowlake.
So if you would like this digi please pop over to Alysha's blog HERE to find out more

Next shabby chic,well kind of,

 DP's are from hunky dory along with the sentiment and bird cage the charm is from craftyindividuals,the roses I made from pieces of ribbon just playing really quite pleased how they turned out.
This card again is using elements from hunky dory,the ticket is available from bizy becs,in aid of the lady who is strugling with cancer the funds go to help her with her treatment.  Thought this card would be perfect for my hubbie,for an alternative xmas card.
Thanks to my new followers too,great to have you on board with me,take care everyone love cheryl xx
Thanks for all the lovely messages you guys leave me so kind of you,my daughter is taking me out for the day tommorow as its my birthday on Monday,and she wants to spend a girly day out then take me out for a meal on Monday.  Then she is off on holiday for a week,she needs it bless her she is much happier now and its great too see.
