CRITTERS OR PEOPLE

Good Morning Everyone,

It's the start of a new challenge today over at As You Like It where we are asking whether you prefer critters or people on your projects. I do like both, but prefer to colour critters as I find them easier, especially if there's a lot of hair to colour and there's also a great variety of cute critters too.



For my card I've used this panda from Lee Holland, coloured with copics. The sentiment is from a MFT set and papers are old LOTV.  Everything has been cut out with stitched dies and the oval is from a Sizzix set. Little turquoise gems finish it off.

I hope you have a good day and thank you for visiting.

CAS CHRISTMAS

Good Morning Everyone,

This is my card for the challenge at CAS Christmas this month where the theme is "Grey and Red". 


I recently purchased this Avery Elle set from a Facebook group and thought it would be ideal for a CAS card.  I stamped the Merry in red first after masking off the rest of the stamp and then vice versa for the grey part.  The colours are Real Red and Smoky Slate from Stampin Up.  Two strips of red card were added top and bottom to finish it off.


I would like to enter:

Thank you for taking the time to visit and I do love to read any comments you may leave.

Have a good day,

DOWN ON THE FARM

Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at The Cutie Pies and this time we are asking to see your cute farm animals. 



I must admit I don't have many farm animals in my stash, but did find these cute sheep from Clearly Besotted which I haven't used before. I stamped and coloured them with copics and added dies for the clouds and grass, which I think are both MFT.  

A quick and simple card for today. I think my mojo has gone walkies somewhere!

Thank you for visiting and I do appreciate any comments you may leave.

FAVOURITE NON CARD PROJECT

Good Morning Everyone,

It it time for a new challenge at As You Like It and the theme is "Favourite Non Card Project", not necessarily paper craft, it can be any type of hobby.


I normally would say cross stitch, but I haven't done any for ages. I do like making Christmas decor though so I can bring it out each year and it seems like new again, if you see what I mean.

I've had this box frame in the craft room for ages and can't even remember why it was originally there so I decided to make a Christmassy thing with it.  I used a few dies, stamps, a diamant√© snowflake received in a kit, which I wouldn't put on a card and a flower which seemed too big to go on any of my cards.

It was really hard to get a good photo of it as I kept seeing my reflection in the glass, but it does look really nice and sparkly in real life.

The sponsor of the challenge is:

ANOTHER GNOME CARD

 Hello Everyone,

I've made another gnome card.  I do love him because I can use up a few scraps of paper and even the base  can be cut from the odd shapes of white you're often left with.

I cut out a rectangular template and used Stampin Up Bashful Blue for the sky and left a slanted bit for the snow.  Then used a Simon Says Falling Snow stencil with texture paste and added white glitter to the past while it was still wet.  Stickles have been added to the snow and the Li'l gnome added to the corner.  I was going to try and draw a frame around it, but decided on some silver peel off strips, it was safer.

I am entering this into:

Simons Says Weds - Anything Goes
SSS Flickrchallenge - use a stencil

AUTUMN OR WINTER?

 Morning Everyone,

I'm back again. This time it's for the start of a new challenge over at As You Like It where we are asking for Autumn or Winter related projects, whichever season is your favourite of the two.



I definitely prefer Autumn to Winter. We can still have nice sunny days here without it being too warm and I love all the beautiful colours of the trees before they begin to lose their leaves.

I have made a card for my brother's birthday by adding lots of little stamps from various sets onto Neenah Desert Storm card.  I have coloured with copics and added glossy accents to the berries.  The sentiment is an unbranded one from Ebay, cut in the same card and the outline die in gold.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

Thank you for visiting and I hope you can leave a comment.  Have a good weekend when it gets here.
