Blog candy with a twist

Hi I received 2 parcels in the post yesterday from 2 blogging buddies involved in the blog candy with a twist. This parcel is from Hazel at Dido's Designs
She has some fabby news too :-) Hop over to her blog to see what it is :-)
I've eaten the choccy's already and I am sure the images will be used !! :-)

This one is from Jacelynn at Enjoy the Process, Keep Balance I love the die cut images and the stamped images too. I wish I could make the crochet flowers ,,,,, !

Thankyou so much to you both :-) I hope you like what I sent you too !! :-)
Love to you both x x

Strawberries and Cream !

I woke up at about 1:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so I came upstairs, made a cuppa, blog hopped then made this card :-) As a few of you know I have been asked by Ellie, who co owns the Digital Stamp Oasis to be on her design team. This image has been designed by her husband, he is so talented !! pop over to the store to see the other images he has designed too :-)
The image I chose to use 1st is called 'Sammy Squirrel eats strawberries', the sentiments on the front of the card are also a download from there. I coloured him with copics, I am still a novice on these pens but think they're lovely and colour so easily. The pinky splodge on his tummy is supposed to be his pink tummy but could also be mistaken for dripped strawberry juice ha ha !!
I am entering this card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge, I followed the fabulous sketch by Dawny P. It also qualifies for the Funky Fairy's Challenge whose theme is 'Feelin Fruity' It hasn't been posted yet but am psychic and know what the theme's going to be ha ha , ( tho it could have something to do with a DT member inadvertantly posting it early then deleting, but not before I had seen it ha ha ) I used my favourite Funky Fairys download papers the Dots are Distressing and the 'It's so Distressing kits. It also qualifies for the ABC Challenge which is 'G' for glitter, that was a fluke ha ha , I had used some doodlebug glittery paper and had added black stickles for strawberry seeds.
The strawberries were made using a craft stamper magazine stamp from last years mag, stamped onto transluscent shrink plastic and coloured with pencils.
I tried to take a photo to show the 3d dimension but think I need a proper photographer like Sue to take the photo properly :-)

I don't often bother to decorate the insides, I usually just stick a plain insert with a sentiment stamped on it but I thought I'd make a little bit of effort for me 1st card as a DT member :-)

Thanks for looking, your comments are always much appreciated so please leave me one :-)
Think I'll go back t bed now !!
