DT post for LEJ Designs: sparkle and shine

Good morning to all my crafty friends and followers. I hope Tuesday has been kind to you so far. And to me. I'm scheduling this post on Monday evening amidst the smell that is pickling! I managed to get all the picalilli made but the smell still lingers - not good! Anyway - less waffling and on with my post.

Over at LEJ Designs challenge blog there is a new challenge - its called sparkle and shine and you can find it here. We have two prizes this week - the first is 3 digis from LEJ Designs - see here.

The second is 5 digis from our sponsor this week - Digi Darla - see here.

The jackpot of LEJ digis was won last week by a participant that used an LEJ image. So anybody using one this week will go in a draw to win 1 digi of their choice.

I've made two cards for you to look at today - the first using a digi Darla image and the second using an LEJ image.

Both images were coloured with promarkers - I've used liquid pearls on the 2nd one to produce the bubbles and the background papers are from crafty individuals.

I'd like to enter my dancing cat card for the following challenges:
thatcraftplaceblog: Bling it on
joannasheenchallenge: so sweet
sendasmile4kidschallengeanything goes
jandccreationschallenge: Cute Christmas
southerngirlschallenge Bling bling bling

I'd like to enter my bathing Ellen into the following challenges:
totallystampalicious: birthday card for a girl
whoopsi daisycutedaisymay: make it girly.
craftsandmechallenges - in the pink

Have a fabulous Tuesday - I'm having a fasting day as part of this bootcamp regime - I lost 3lb last week so I'm happy and trying to stick to it!
