Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you are well and making headway into your Christmas preparations.

It is time for the last challenge of the year for the team at As You Like It and for this fortnight we would like you to showcase a project using your favourite die.

I must admit I do have a few favourites, but for Christmas cards this MFT tree die is ideal as it makes quick and easy cards without having to spend ages colouring an image.  I have added silver mirri card for the mat,  a heat embossed sentiment from a Penny Black set, added strips of glitter under the die and a few green sparklies to finish.

I know you must all be busy but I hope you get some time to enter the challenge and have the chance to win a prize from the fabulous sponsors, Lili of the Valley.

Good Morning All,

Today is the start of a new challenge at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme is "Christmas Cuties" so a very easy one.

I've been very short of crafting time just lately with Christmas preparations so have made a really quick and tiny DT card.  It measures just 4.5 inches and has a pre-coloured image from LOTV when they used to sell them on A4 sheets in different sizes.  I've used one piece of patterned paper in grey, blue and white from The Works and added pale blue mats to the image and the main layer.  Two snowflakes, glittery ribbon and glitter for the snow were added for the added sparkle.

I would like to enter:

Thank you for visiting and I will be back on Thursday.

Good Morning Everyone,

We have a new challenge at As You Like It today and we are asking you to CASE something from a DT card.

For my card I've CASE'd one I've made before, but this time in a more non traditional colour.  I've also heat embossed the wording with a MFT background stamp and this is what I am asking to be CASE'd from my card (heat embossing).  This way it doesn't have to be a Christmas card, it can be for any occasion.  

The cute stamp is from Stamping Bella and I have coloured him with copics and added glitter to the snow and glossy accents to the baubles.

If you would like to pop over to the challenge here you will be able to see what the rest of the DT are asking to be used from their lovely cards.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas and for this month the theme is "Winter Wonderland".

For my DT card I have used a freebie image from an old magazine, together with the background paper, and framed with a Clearly Besotted frame die which has been added with foam tape.  I made the floral display from a Spellbinders poinsettia, Tim Holtz foliage and added berries and fir cones.  I glued these onto a small piece of card first which made it easier to arrange them before adding to the card front.

I think this one will be going to my Mum in law and I'll probably add a sentiment on before it goes, but not decided which one yet.

I hope you will be able to join in this last challenge of the year.  Thank you for taking the time to visit and have a good week.
