BLACK & WHITE & ONE OTHER COLOUR

 Good Morning Everyone,

This is my reminder post for Christmas Craft Creations where the theme this month is Black and White plus one other colour.



I've chosen gold for my extra colour.  I had some odd pieces of this lovely paper and have heat embossed my reindeer and sentiment in gold and used gold pearlescent for the mats. 

I would like to enter:

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Anything Christmas
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Snippets used were the white pieces and the mats that go with them.

Thank you for visiting and have a good day.

FIND TIME TO RELAX

Good Morning Everyone,

This is a card I made for my daughter who had a baby in August hence the sentiment, which is computer generated.


It is a Stamping Bella stamp coloured with copics and stickles added to the bubbles.  The papers are from an old LOTV pad and I've added die cut flowers and used a corner punch.

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.

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.

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:
