 Good Morning Everyone,

This is a card made for the reminder post at Christmas Craft Creations where the theme is Christmas Music.

For my card I have used the cute Lawn Fawn set, Here We Go a Waddling, which I won at Pixie's   Snippets Playground run by the lovely Di a while ago. I have coloured a distress oxide background and used the dies for the set to cut out the penguins and lamp after colouring them with copics. The forest tree background die is also from Lawn Fawn and a Memory Box die for the star.

I hope you like my creation and that it might inspire you to enter the challenge where there is a lovely stamp set from Clearly Besotted on offer as the prize for the winner.

Blogger seems to be messing with my paragraphs today. I usually have them on Left align, but this doesn't seem to work at the moment so I've had to put them on Justify, but it doesn't look too bad.

Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at As You Like it and we would like to see your favourite colour to go with blue (and don't forget to say why please).

For birthday cards I don't really have a favourite combination, but for wintery cards I think blue and white go so well together.  The combination adds to the coolness and wintery feel.

For my card I have used the cute Mo Manning Giggling Snowman, coloured him with copics and fussy cut him out.  The Winter Doily die is from Joy Crafts and I have cut the Merry die at least twice, once with a scrap of white then the blue to match the bottom layer paper.  The Christmas sentiment has been embossed in white onto a scrap of the blue paper. Little blue pearls finish it off.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

Well we had a really miserable day here yesterday, rained all day, but I did manage to meet some friends for lunch and a catch up so it wasn't too bad.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy the weekend when it arrives.

 Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend.  This is my reminder post for the Cutie Pie challenge where the theme is Too Cute to Spook.

For my card I have used a Rachelle Anne Miller digi. I thought these were really cute when I saw them, especially the little squirrel ghost so just had to buy them, as you do.  I coloured with copics and fussy cut them out.  The background is a mix of distress oxides. I masked the moon and coloured that in afterwards and then had a rummage to see what I could used in black card.  I came up with a Memory Box twiggy tree die and the smaller trees and fence are from a Wild Rose Studio die.  The bats were stamped last.

I don't usually make Halloween cards, but I have just the person to send it to, my niece.  Her dad really goes over the top in decorating the house front.

Good Morning Everyone,

I can't believe it's over 11 days since I last posted!   I hope you've had an enjoyable weekend.

I am sharing a card made for my sister in law's Mum earlier this year.

I have used a chipboard element for the centre which I painted with cream distress paint, have hand stitched around the top layer of paper and used lot of embellishments by way of lace, pearls and paper flowers.  The leaves are die cut from a Memory Box die and there is a tag at the top between the layers which has Happy Birthday embossed in gold. 

I'm pleased to say she was over the moon when she received it.

 Good Morning Everyone,

The 1st of the month brings a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas and the theme is Vintage Christmas.

For my DT card I have used an image from an old crafting magazine and added gold sheen card for the mats, a gold bow and have distressed the edges of all papers.  A linen impression plate has been used on the deep red paper, but you can't see it on the photo.

I'm afraid the bow will make it a large letter for the post, but that can't be helped.  It does annoy me sometimes how they do it by thickness as well as size. The little gap they slide it through at the p.o. is so small, you can hardly put anything extra on!
