Hello everyone. I'm here again with this weeks Cuddly Buddly Digi Challenge. The theme this week was set by me and it is PETALS AND PEARLS.

A little too much I think lol..

Head on over to the Cuddly Buddly Lets Keep Creating Challenge Blog for details of the Challenge and for some amazing inspiration. Please remember to be eligible for any prizes you must use an image purchased from CUDDLY BUDDLY..

Cuddy Buddly Digi Challenge Launch...

Welcome to the launch of the brand new CUDDLY BUDDLY DIGI CHALLENGE. I want to thank Kim for this opportunity to work alongside her and this talented Design Team. Each week there will be a new fun challenge with each member of the design teams showcasing a different image from all the incredibly talented artists at CUDDLY BUDDLY.

You can enter as many times as you like as long as the main focal image is from CUDDLY BUDDLY. The theme for our first challenge was chosen by the lovely Katie and it's "Brand New"... This can be something created for a new home, baby etc or it could be that you use a new embellishment, product or technique.

I was extremely lucky this week to be able to work with a couple of Barbara Williams' gorgeous BITS OF IVORY images. It was so hard choosing as all of Barbara's images are simply stunning.

For my card I chose A GOOD BOOK and added one of her beautiful GARDEN VIGNETTES TICKET SENTIMENTS. These are so lovely, I can see that I will lot of use from them.
