Morning Everyone,

This is my reminder post for Christmas Craft Creations where the theme this month is to use on your Christmas project either an embossing folder or stencil or even other.

For my card I have used a Spellbinders embossing folder called Forever Green on the bottom half of the card, although it's not very easy to see in the photo.  I have used Spellbinders dies for the floral arrangement, which were all cut from snippets, a sentiment stamped in red which I think was from a free magazine set and dotted ribbon to finish off with. 

There are two prizes on offer and the entry deadline is Tuesday, 12th March at 6pm so still plenty of time to enter.

I would like to enter:

Feb Rudolph Days - Anything Christmas
Snippets playground - Snippets used were all the floral arrangement and white layer.
Paper Funday challenge - No patterned paper
Classic Design challenge - Anything goes

Thank you for visiting and have a good day.

 Morning Everyone,

There's a new challenge starting over at As You Like it and we are asking whether you prefer to make masculine or feminine cards.

It's definitely feminine for me. I think it's a lot easier to add embellishments such as flowers, pearls etc to female cards although saying that, I've only added a die cut flower and one sparkly gem to this one.

I have used a Stamping Bella image called Isabelle loves Ice Cream and coloured her with copics.  Papers are from an old LOTV paper pad called Romance and Roses and the ric rac die is from mft.

I would like to add this to:

PIP Challenge #2407 - Anything Goes 
Allsorts - Shades of Pink
Classic Design - Anything Goes
Passion for Markers - Dies and/or Punches
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and have a good week.

 Hello Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend.  I thought it was about time I did some colouring so had a look through my basket of unused stamps and decided to have a go at this Chocolate Baroque stamp called Crackling Rose.

I've coloured with copics and distressed the edges of the image very lightly.  I found a piece of green paper which matched quite well, added some hessian and a couple of sentiment stamps.

I hope you like it. I would like to enter:

Thank you for visiting and see you soon.

 Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge over at As You like It and we are asking whether you prefer to work with stamps or digis.  I do love both, but digis win this time just for the fact that you can resize them and, when you're short of time for colouring, pre-coloured digis are ideal as with this card.

This is an image from Etsy here called Vintage Mouse in Teacup and I have used a Craft Consortium die to cut him out and papers and flowers from my stash.  I decided to round the corners for a change.

I would like to enter:

Pennys Paper Crafty - Anything Goes

Critter Crazy - Anything with a Critter
Paper Fundays -  Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I hope to be back soon.
