Hi everyone, thanks so much for the fab cards this week and apologies for not getting round to comment this week it's been one of those weeks! So sorry about that - I will be back on form again this week and am getting there with the new computer lol!!
UPDATE on the Children in Need cards - I have over 50 cards so far and after the emails and comments have decided to extend until next Friday - so please carry on sending me your cards, if you haven't had chance already - you're not too late! PLEASE REMEMBER to make them all YELLOW!!!
Onto this weeks challenge! It was PTW's 1st birthday on the 1st of October so this week we have a choice of 2 challenges
Firsts - first birthday, Christmas, anniversary etc
OR
No Stamping! - embellishments, papers, die cuts, paper folding, stitching, encaustic, doodling? etc etc
Here are the fab DT cards:

fun! I love making cards but don't usually drag my stamps out (i know, lazy, lol). Here is one I finished today that used zero stamps (and i LOVE the way it turned out!): http://scrappyerin.blogspot.com/2008/10/christmas-cards-all-year-round.html
I also did a little boasting about your blog for ya. :o)

Happy Birthday! I've covered both challenges in the one card - Honest, not a single stamp was used as it's all my own drawing.
