Hi Everyone

Today is the start of the new Christmas with the Cuties challenge and I'm so pleased and excited to have been asked to be a part of their new team! Full details of the challenge can be found here and this month's challenge is Anything Goes.  This is my card:

This is a cute Sylvia Zet image which I have coloured with copics. I have also put copper glitter on the bauble and present and glossy accents on his nose.  The papers are First Edition Christmas Wishes which have been distressed slightly.  I love these papers as 2 of them are also glittery but you can't see that on the photo.  I added some shabby green frantage to the chipboard holly (although it didn't come out very green) and there are 3 little berries there from the Ribbon Girl.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Allsorts - Anything Christmas
Ribbon Girl - Use any image
Crafty Creations - Christmas
Brown Sugar Challenge - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps & More - Anything Goes

Hi Everyone

I've made a second version of this LOTV image as when my aunt saw the first one she really liked it, so I thought I'd make her one for Christmas as I couldn't really give the one she'd already seen. This one is in a different colour way which is quite nice and cool looking for Christmas cards.

I've coloured the image with copics again and cut the oval out with a Sizzix Tim Holtz die.  The flowers are Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Poinsettia Additions and the stitched banner is also a Creative Expressions one.  Love this little image as I can glitter up all the fur and there's not too much colouring to do.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Christmas/Holidays
CCC Digi Creations - Bingo (Flowers, Image, Pearls)
Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - Digi Girls or hats
Stamping Sensations - Christmas Greetings

Hi Everyone

This is another family christmas card to show you, one for my daughter and her partner this time.
The image is a Teddy Bo one, which I think is so cute!

I have coloured them with copics, distressed the edges of the papers and stitched around the bottom 2 layers.  There is one die cut snowflake which has been glittered and 2 small pearl snowflakes in the top right and the flowers have been glittered with stickles. The leaves have been cut from white glitter card and the white crispy ribbon has had little white pearls glued to it.

My cards always look better in real life than they do in photos, but then I suppose that's the case with everyone's.  

I would like to enter the following challenges:

As You Like It - Teddies or Fairies (teddies always as they are so cute and lovable - my daughter still has hers from being a baby and she's 24 now).
A Gem of a Challenge - Snowflakes
Fab n Funky - Animals
Noor Design - Winter
Fuss n Fancy - Ice/Snow
Winter Wonderland - Add Ribbon/Flowers
Live and Love Crafts - White Christmas

Hi Everyone

A christmas card here for you to see.  This one has a reindeer image from Di's Digistamps which I coloured with copics and added glitter to his hat and baubles.

I also added glossy accents to his red nose and glitter glue to the edges of the poinsettia, which are made from a Creative Expressions die.

The lovely christmas paper comes glittered and is from First Edition, apart from the bottom layer which is from my stash. Pearls, ribbon and some bling in the flowers were also added.  I won't be adding a sentiment until I've decided who is going to receive it. I hope you like.

ABC Challenge - Red, Reindeer, Ribbon
Allsorts - Sparkle and Shine
Sweet Stamping Challenge - Fave Colour combo (red and green for Christmas cards)

Hi Everyone

I thought I'd have a play with a stamp I bought and never used.  It was one of those "see it, must have it" ones and then you don't use it.  I have a few of those!

This one is Botanical Bunch from WPlus9.  I heat embossed it in white onto watercolour card and then coloured in with watercolour pencils.

It was supposed to be in a stitched rectangle but because I wasn't paying attention it somehow didn't all get cut out properly and when I tried to put it through the machine again it wasn't lined up correctly so it's turned out smaller than originally planned.  I inked around the edges of the watercolour card and then layered up with yellow and placed onto paper from Nitwit Collections called Flowershoppe. The sentiment has been stamped in silver metallic.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Flower Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything goes with a twist
Brown Sugar Challenge - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps & More - Anything Goes

Hi Everyone

I'm happy to see I have had a few new followers recently and would like to thank and also welcome them.  I hope you enjoy my makes.

When I saw the new challenge at Winter Wonderland was for "Frosty" I thought these cards might fit the bill.

They are only 4.5 inches square and I have made a few as they are flat for posting.  They are in blue and white:

and a greeny blue and silver:

The square of paper was cut out with a stitched edge die and then I die cut the snowflake in the centre and placed a piece of silver mirri behind the aperture. I die cut the snowflake again in white glitter card, glued it partly in the hole leaving some of the edges sticking up and then added a little piece of bling.  The continuous sentiment strip is stamped in silver metallic ink and the edges glittered in white. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

CraftyHazelnut CC 304 - Use a Sentiment
CraftyHazelnut CC Extra - Anything Goes
Craft your Passion 334 - Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas

Thank you for taking the time to visit.  I always love reading your comments and they are much appreciated.

Hi Everyone

I hope you all had a good weekend.  I visited Stamp Magic at Doncaster yesterday and bought a few things.  I tried to limit myself and not buy lots as I've done that before and still not used some of the things I've bought!

I have another christmas card to share with you.  This one is quite a simple layout and it's Mr. Snowman from LOTV which I have as a digi image.

I coloured him with copics and used First Edition Christmas Wishes paper.  The holly die cuts are some bought from Ebay earlier in the year.  I've added liquid pearls and diamond glitter glue to the snow and around the sentiment, which is also from LOTV.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Sketchy Challenges - Anything Goes
The Ribbon Girl - Any Image 
CCC Digi Creations - Add a bow
TTCRD - Anything Goes
