 Morning Everyone,

A last minute entry into the November Rudolph Days challenge.

This is the Christmas Icons stamp from Simon Says coloured with various pens, including glitter pens, and with a die cut sentiment added.  I must say it was quite relaxing sitting colouring this.

Just a quick post today, hope everyone is well and getting ready for Christmas.

Thank you for your visit.

 Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for the start of a new challenge over at As You Like It and we are asking you to share your projects with your favourite non-traditional Christmas animal (and it is a penguin free zone).

I have chosen these kitties from Gerda Steiner. They are so mischievous and make a fun card for cat owners.  I also love her Christmas carolling kittens, but haven't got round to using them this year.

I have coloured with copics and used a sentiment from a Stamping Bella set.  I have added glitter to their hats and a glitter pen to the baubles but, as usual, this doesn't show up well on the photo.  The red strip on the edge of the paper is some very thin ribbon.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

with a voucher for the lucky winner

I hope you can join us and you can pop over to the challenge here to the see the inspiration from the rest of the DT.

 Good Morning Everyone,

This is my reminder post for Christmas Craft Creations where the theme this month is to use washi-tape.

I have used my Simon Says Stamp reindeer window die surrounded by a sentiment from MFT and with three strips of Christmas washi tape.  This would be an easy card for batch making as long as you get the tape straight!

This is a second version using the teal as the main colour.

There's a really cute Christmas stamp set on offer as the prize and we are having a DT call for anyone interested in joining a Christmas challenge.  Just pop over here for the full details.

 Morning Everyone,

It's time for a new challenge at The Cutie Pies and the theme is "Four Legged Friends".

For quickness I used an old pre-coloured image from Lili of the Valley and matted with silver mirror card.  The paper is a gorgeous green which I came across by accident after I'd cut another piece for the purpose.  It went so well with the green in the image I just had to use it.  I've added some pretty glittery ribbon, clear champagne bubble and a few pearls.  The sentiment is from a Penny Black set.

The sponsor for this challenge is:

I hope you can join us this month and you can see the inspiration from the rest of the DT here.

 Morning Everyone,

It's the start of a new challenge at As You Like It and we are asking to see your favourite non-traditional Christmas colours.

I have chosen pink as I think it's such a pretty change to reds and greens and it goes well with both silver and gold.

I did have a bit of brain fog when trying to decide on the design for the card and it seemed to take me ages, but with the help of my mini scalloped edgers I got there in the end!  I've stamped my Gummiapan reindeer in silver, cut out with the relating die and heat embossed the sentiment.

The sponsor for this challenge is Lawn Fawn with a voucher for the lucky winner.

I would like to enter:

Thank you for taking the time to visit and I will be back soon.

 Morning Everyone,

I thought I'd join in with the celebrations theme at Allsorts for their 700th challenge with this card I've made for a friend's birthday using the Balloon Bouquet and twisted crepe dies from The Greetery at Seven Hills Crafts.

I stamped the main part of the balloon in pink onto a snippet of white and that leaves all the gaps for the flowers which, with the leaves, are stamped in four different stages. It's not always easy to get them lined up properly and I needed a few goes at it before I was satisfied.  The lilac balloon was coloured with copics.  The sentiment has been heat embossed in silver and I've added glitter to the crepe dies and the number 70.

I would like to enter:
