One post, Two Cards, a DT and a GDT triangular easel card

I have two cards for you today, one is a DT card and I also won a GDT slot so I'm showing the card I made for that too (both challenges go live at the same time). I think my blog is getting as busy as my life!
The first card is also being entered into the following challenges:
Stamp Something - Something Cute
Cute Card Thursday - In the name of Love
Daring Cardmakers - Have A Heart
Polka Doodles - Hearts and Flowers
This is my DT card for the One Stop Craft Challenge. Today our wonderful Chrissie has given us a superb sketch to follow and it is definitely one that I will use again and again. The girlies on the DT have made some superb creations this week so it is definitely worth popping over to the challenge blog to take a look.

Items used:
Basic Grey paper
Penny Black image
Martha Stewart punch
Prima bling swirls
Flowers, mini bling, ribbon from my stash
Distress inks: Black soot, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concorde, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick.

Susie and Vikki's Christmas Club GDT Card
My second card is a GDT card for Susie and Vikki's Christmas Club Challenge where the theme for this week is 'Anything Goes'.
This card is a result of one of those light bulb moments. You all know how I love my easel cards, don't you? Well, I decided to try out a triangular shaped easel card. This shaped card would make a fantastic Christmas Tree card and I'm sure someone will get around to making a tree card before I have the time.

Susie and Vikki are being sponsored by Elephantastic and I've used one of their images (Sketchy Snowman) for this card
Items Used:
Bearly Mine papers and the calendar
Elephantastic digi image
Silver elasticated ribbon
Penny Black snowflake stamp
Inkadinkado border stamp
Starlight embossing powder
Distress inks
Glamour Dust,
Thanks for looking,
