Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog
OK, now onto our new challenge. We want to play BINGO with you! Just in case you are not sure, here is what you need to do...from the grid below you need to pick a horizontal or vertical line (not diagonal!) and ensure your card or project contains all the elements of that line...

So, for instance, I might choose the horizontal middle line so I would need to ensure I include a One Word Sentiment, 3D items and Die Cuts. 
my line is
2 word sentiment/3d item / something shiny.
I have used a large grand ornate square spellbinder mounted onto a 8 x 8inch card blank with 3d tape.
I then used centura pearl card and cut out the couple with my Cameo, I also cut out congratulations & engaged in silver miri card, To finish off I added the couples name in glitter letters.
Thanks for calling by

My Last pick of the week at Dragons Den

Hi Folks it's Tania here with my pick of the week.
Where do the weeks keep going
We are now well into little Februaury, hope you had a super Valentines day.
The image that I have used has come from the fabulous Stamping Dragon Designs Shop .

There are some wonderful images that you can purchase and once you buy one you will be hooked.

For my image today  I have chosen Jiggy with his drum Kit card set

Some times we need a quick card to make and here is a wonderful kit for any male from
8 to 80.
I have mounted the first layer onto black card then decoupaged the picture and the sentiment tag. I added Stickles glitter glue to Jiggy's horns and wings and a peel off sentiment and there you have it a wonderful mans card, in minuets

Make sure you pop on over to the Shop and have a browse , there is a great selection of  Images available for you to choose from.

We also have a Stamping Dragon Facebook Group , where we have lots of fun , inspiration for you , mini challenges and lots , lots more, so why not come over and see us.

Well that's  it from me for today, and sadly my last pick of the week.
I have decided to stand down due to external work pressures.
Make sure you call by for
 Gwyneth bringing you the next
 Pick of the Week
