Now let's see what this week's DT 1 has for your inspiration.

Pretty punches!  Bev chose one of Pattie's freebies, 'Cupcake' with loads of glitter.  Love that bling!

Linda used 'Butterfly 1' for her image.  Wow, wow, wow!  This is what she said about her creation:
"Did anyone say punches? I enjoy making my own embellishments, so I used 4 various sizes of Retro Flower from EK Success; and PUNCHED in all 5 flowers, made them wet, rolled each petal around a knitting-needle and squeezed it together from each side. Dried and assembled them to one flower.
I really think this flower is perfect for this beautiful BUTTERFLY from Pattie’s Creations.
Additional: MS border PUNCH, QK border, Hero Arts background stamp, TH distress ink, Copic Ciao, Maya Road Chipboard, Glittermedium, etc."

Mel went with 'Baby Mine' for her creation.  This image is so adorable!  Mel said:
'I used a Fiskars corner punch for the corners of the sentiment. I went with a slightly different idea to the usual baby pink, and went with a bright, hot, pink.'
I love these colors, well done Mel!

Theresa went with Pattie's image called 'Angel Pattieboop'.  Pretty flower embellies and love those blue colors.  She titled her photo 'Dreaming'.  Nicely done!

I love Easel cards!  They are one of my favorite types of cards to make.  Not only did Tina do a unique easel card, she also made a tag!  The image is 'Toboggan Fun' and is totally cute!  I LOVE it!

Sandi (that's me)
I made a card using 'Iceskater Pattieboop'.  Don't you just love the vibrancy of the reds, and I added red glitter to her skates.  3D glitter fabric paint was applied to the mountain peaks.  The red CS was sponged on with white ink, and the white snowflake punches got some sparkly glitter added to them too.

Now it's your turn!  Leave a link to your post below with Inlinkz.  Good luck, and remember to have fun!

Thank You!
