SPOTS AND DOTS

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend.  

It is time for a new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties and this time we would like to see "Spots and Dots",  as long as it's cute and Christmassy.



There is no sponsor for this challenge so I have chosen to use the cute Penguin Holiday Squares stamp set from Whimsy to use for my card.  There are 3 in the set, but I've only used 2, together with the sentiment which is also from the set.  I have coloured the little cuties with copics, heat embossed the sentiment in silver and added three of my favourite mini snowflakes in silver glitter card.  I've also hand stitched around the edge of the dotty paper for a bit more interest and added silver twine.

I hope you will be able to join in this month as we're half way through the year and we need to make a start on those Christmas cards.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Christmas Kickstart challenge - Glitter, Sparkle and Shine
Allys Angels - Anything Goes
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes
The Sketchy Challenges - Ribbon, Lace or Twine


Thank you for visiting and have a good week,

SUMMER OR WINTER COLOURS?

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you are keeping well.  It is time for a new challenge over at As You Like It and the theme for this fortnight is for you to showcase a project using your favourite of either "Summer or Winter Colours" (and don't forget to say why please).



I have chosen Summer colours.  I just love seeing the gardens full of colour and all the lush greenery everywhere.  I have used an old Penny Black stamp called Hello Dear and coloured with copics.   The papers are from a First Edition pad and I've added bric a brac, a little flower and a heat embossed LOTV sentiment.

The sponsor for this challenge is:

TIME TO RELAX

Hello Everyone,

I am sharing a just for fun card today.  With the weather being very wet at the moment I've had a bit more time to play in the craft room.

I decided to use another Ebay purchase, a wooden stamp bought when I first started card making.


I thought the image relates more to a man's card so I used blue and beige papers with kraft card for the mats.  I coloured the cute little PB mouse with copics and  inked the edges with Stampin Up Bashful Blue ink.  The sentiments are computer generated and I've added stitch banners and a few enamel dots.  A fairly simple make, but I quite like how it turned out as I always struggle with men's cards.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Addicted to Stamps - For a Boy/Man
Simon Says Stamp Weds - Masculine
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar - Masculine
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes

FAVOURITE STAMP BRAND

Good Morning All,

I hope you are keeping well.  It is time for a new challenge over at As You Like It and for this fortnight we would like you to show us a project featuring your favourite stamp brand (and don't forget to say why it's your favourite please).




I have 2 favourites, Lili of the Valley and Stamping Bella.  I used a LOTV stamp for the last challenge so I've opted for Stamping Bella this time.

I love LOTV for their cuteness and quality, but Stamping Bella often has images which suit my friends and family more and this one, Edna Loves Chocolate, is just perfect for one of my friends.  I have coloured her with copics and used paper from a Bo Bunny pad called Sweet Moments.  The sentiment stamp which comes with the image was slightly too big for where I wanted it to be so I created another on the computer (but then I changed where it was going anyway!).  I've added green satin ribbon to match and also glitter on her wings.

I hope you can join us for the challenge and if you'd like to pop over  here you will be able to see the lovely inspiration from the rest of the DT.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Southern Girls - Tape It, Lace It or Tie It
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
The Sketchy Challenges - Ribbon, Lace or Twine
Di's Digi Challenge - Add Glitter/Glitter Glue/Liquid Pearl

REINDEER

Good Morning Everyone,

It's time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas and this month we would like you to include a Reindeer on your project.


This is my DT card and I have used Reindeer trio by Impression Obsession and cut them in kraft.  They are surrounded by 2 Ebay purchases.  One is the Memory box flurry frame and the other is the frame die from Clearly Besotted. The snowy frame was a lot smaller than I expected when it arrived so I've cut it across the middle and added two snowflakes to hopefully hide the gap.  The frame dies were also a necessary addition to hide the gap.  The paper is from First Edition and I've layered them all onto a piece of kraft.

The sentiment is heat embossed on vellum and is from a LOTV set.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Penny's Paper Crafty #432 - Anything Goes
Crimbo Crackers #185 - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Weds - Anything Goes
Double D  - Frames
Love to Scrap - No Rulz 3

Thank you for visiting and have a lovely weekend all, it looks as though it's going to be a good one here.

CWTCUTIES DT - TAG IT

Good Morning All,

I hope you are having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend those of you in the UK.

It is time for a new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme this time is Tag It, so there must be a tag somewhere on your cute Christmas project please.




I have used one of my favourite Mama Elephant reindeers from Reindeer Games stamp set, coloured him with copics,  and attached him to a white stitched tag with foam tape.  This card is only 5" square and I have used papers from a small Wild Rose freebie paper pad, which must have come with a magazine. The merry die is from Concorde & 9th from Seven Hills Crafts and I have layered it with gold mirri card and heat  embossed the little Christmas word in gold.  Two pieces of red ribbon and three little pearls finish it off.

I would like to enter:

Rudolph Days May challenge
Pixie's Snippets Playground  #353 - all the gold mirri pieces and the red sentiments were snippets
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Crimbo Crackers 185 - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I hope you can join in this month's challenge where the sponsor is Crafty Ribbons with a lovely prize for the winner.

COLOUR CRAZY GUEST DT

Good Morning All,

This is my final card as a Guest DT for the Colour Crazy challenge, where it is Anything Goes as long as there is hand colouring to be seen.



Contrary to my post yesterday, I have made a boy card and used the sweet "Gamer Little Dude" from the sponsors, Polkadoodles.  You also get extra papers with the image, but the colours don't always come out as they should  from my printer so I've opted not to use them.  I have coloured him with copics to match the papers which are from a pad called Baby Mine by Carta Bella.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and I have added a couple of die cut stars for a bit of extra interest.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Allsorts - Happy 10th Birthday
Di's DigiDesigns - Make it Masculine
Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
Digi Choosday Wk21 - Anything Goes
Polkadoodles Wk 21 - Anything Goes
Creatalicious #163 - Anything Goes
