Cute Card Thursday GDT & PaperPlay Challenges

*big grin*
I had a very unexpected, yet very exciting email this week. Caz from Cute Card Thursday invited me to be guest DT for the rest of February.. of course I was thrilled to bits and had no hesitation in saying yes!!
The theme of the challenge this week is "In the name of Love" and here is my guest DT submission. 

The prize this week is being sponsored but Simon Says Stamp and they are offering $25 store credit to the lucky winner!!!

Don't forget to check out the wonderful samples of the CCT desgin team over on the blog!!

I am also entering this card into Simon Says Stamp's own challenge with their theme "What's Love got to do with it",  Papertake Weekly's challenge as I followed their sketch and Fussy & Fancy Friday with their theme Hearts.

Papers: Making Memories Paperie-Rouge & Mocha
Image: Sarah Kay - A kiss for Chloe
Bingo Card - Jenni Bowlin
Tools: MS Heartlace punch, distress inks, ink dauber, crackle paint
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Grungeboard heart, pearls, pin, twine & key from my stash

The challenge on PaperPlay this week is to create a project with a Birthday theme for someone special. 

Our prize is a wonderful embellishment pack consisting of lace, ribbon, buttons & bows.

I also followed the theme over on Magnolia Down Under Challenges which was to use Pink & Grey :) 

Papers: Papermania - Nostalgia Warm

Flowers & pearl spray - Wild Orchid Crafts
Tools: MS Loops punch, Heidi Swapp edge distresser, distress inks, cuttlebug, oval nesties, McGill pine leaf punch.
Ribbon & mini tag from my stash.

Again, please do check out the other DT ladies samples. We had a fantastic response to last week's challenge and hope to inspire equally as many this week :)

Great cards, Sandie - and congrats on the Cute Card Thursday Guest DT post. Love that crackled heart on the first card, and the second is such a cutie too - I thought we'd used the same punch, but yours is McGill and mine is MS!!!
