CWTC DT - Card for a child

Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme is "For a Child" so as long as it fits that theme and is cute and christmassy we would love you to join in.




Not sure what's gone wrong with my photo.  I've took it at an angle, but the whole thing seems to be lopsided!  I have used a pre-coloured Pink Gem image and fussy cut him out to sit on the die cut oval.  The papers are from an old LOTV paper pad and the sentiment is computer generated.  I've embossed the white oval shape with a snowflake folder and added red glitter around the red oval.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Crafty Catz - Let's Do Christmas
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Lets Craft and Create - Anything goes
Little Miss Muffet - Anything goes

I think that's all for now. Thank you for visiting and I hope you all have a good week.

ACROSS THE MILES

Good Morning Everyone,

This is a card I made for my brother's birthday.  I never find masculine cards very easy, but I've had these car images stashed away for a while so this one's come in handy at last!



The bottom paper is from the Works, but the image, checked paper and number plates are Mister Tom's Treasures from Pion Design.    I've distressed all the edges and stamped the sentiment onto a snippet of the paper and also stamped the postmark from LOTV at the top.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Pixie's Snippets Playground - snippets used were some of the kraft card, checked paper and the sentiment
The Sketchy Challenges - Travel, Across The Miles
Crafty Addicts - Anything Goes
Crafteezee - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have time to leave a comment.  Have a good rest of the week.

BOY OR GIRL? - AYLI DT


Good Morning Everyone,

Do you prefer making projects for boys or girls?  That is the theme for the new challenge at As You Like It. 




I find it much easier to make a girlie card rather than a boy one.   There always seems to be more of  a choice of embellishments to make them pretty .  Saying that I haven't added a lot to this card, only stars in different colours of glitter, some of which are leftovers from a die and the smaller ones are from my Fiskars paper puncher.  I've coloured them with pens to match little Unicorn Lucy from CC Designs who was coloured with copics and then fussy cut to sit on the card.

I thought I'd try a number shaped card so attempted this with my Scan n Cut machine which I bought a few weeks ago on Ebay.  It took several looks on Youtube and attempts at the cutting, but I made it in the end!  The sentiment is a Gummiapan die which I've lathered with glossy accents to make it shiny and I've also added a glitter pen to Lucy's wings, tail and horn.

I hope you can join us and the lucky winner will receive a voucher from

HAPPY REINDEER

Good Morning Everyone,

I have a just for fun card today, which makes a change from DT cards.  When I saw the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches I thought I'd have a go though I have left it quite late!

This is my card


and this is the sketch



When I saw it I thought I could use my new reindeer stamp from the LOTV Christmas Friends set.  I've coloured him with copics and also used liquid pearls around the image and glossy accents on his nose.   The main dp is from an old LOTV paper pad and for the banners I used snippets from my christmas papers folder.

BLUE & GOLD CHRISTMAS

Good Morning Everyone,

It's the start of a new month (can't believe it's September already) and time for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas.  The theme this month is blue and gold so we'd like to see any  christmas projects featuring these colours.





I must admit this colour scheme stumped me a little so I decided to keep it a quick and simple card.  I embossed the woodware tree stamp and sentiment onto blue card in gold and cut it out with a stitched rectangle.   I added a few small punched stars and then stuck it onto gold mirri card.

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see more inspiration from the rest of the DT.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

CraftyHazelNuts Christmas - Anything Goes
Simon Say Stamp Weds - Anything Goes
Creates and Makes - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper Crafty #395 - Anything Goes
Christmas at Sweet Stamping - Anything Goes

Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope you have a lovely weekend.  I think it's going to be warm again here in the UK.

AYLI DT - Non Card Project

Good Morning Everyone,

I'm back again, but not with a card this time as it's the start of a new challenge at As You Like It and the theme is for you to show us your favourite type of non-card project.

Before card making grabbed me cross stitch was a favourite hobby and this is one of my makes from a while ago.  It's a Heritage cross stitch kit but not sure of the name.  




This is one picture I actually completed but haven't had framed as, since we've had a lot of work done on the house, it's now too modern for such an old fashioned picture.  I suppose I could put it in my craft room though.  I am ashamed to say I do have quite a few unfinished cross stitch projects, large ones, so if I do anything now it has to be something small that I can do while watching tv.

The sponsor for the challenge is:



with a $25 gift voucher for the lucky winner 

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the lovely inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a good weekend.

CWTCUTIES DT - SNOWMEN

Morning Everyone,

I hope you are having a good Bank Holiday weekend.  We had a day of rain here yesterday, we went for our dog walk in the morning as the forecast stated rain at noon, but it came early and we were soaked!

It's time for another challenge at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme this time is Snowmen.




We are sponsored by Bugaboo stamps for this challenge and they have kindly provided the team with images.  I used the snowman blocks for my red and white card.  I've cut the blocks separately and searched in my red folder for scraps of card to mat them on.  It's amazing how many different shades of one colour you can get.  These little squares have been coloured with copics and stuck to a white stitched square of hammered white paper which matches the card.  The red outer die I think is a Spellbinders, also using a snippet from my folder.  I've also added liquid pearls, glitter and little pom poms to their hats.

I hope you can join us for this challenge and there will be a prize for the lucky winner from the sponsors.



You can pop over to the challenge here to see the inspiration from the rest of the DT.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

August Rudolph Days - Anything Christmas
Pixie's Snippets Playground #333 - snippets used - all the red card and white square
