We are looking for some new DT members join us at the start of January 2015. You will need to create one project per month (usually using digi stamps provided by sponsors) and to comment on challenge entries. You are also expected to enter challenges with your projects and promote the challenge where ever possible. You must have an active Blog.
We are a happy band of crafters living across the world, we don't "do", drama and we have lots of fun!
If you would like to join us please add DT next to name on your entry. We will contact a short list of people who will be invited to tell us a little bit about why they would like to join us x

Now on to this months challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore which is anything goes and is sponsored by Whoopsidaisy who are very kindly giving a prize of 2 sheets of digis. 

My card for this months challenge was a difficult card for me to make, it was for my dear father in law's 85th birthday, he is poorly and having a bit of a rough time. He is such a sweetheart and never complains.  I hunted high and low for the right image for this one. He keeps Gouldian Finches so this card was well received and is in pride of place on the mantlepiece!!

The Gouldian finch is a digi image from Paint the World Super Colouring
Coloured with Copic Sketch and Ciao
Paper, dried grass and raffia from stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges
Have a great November
