CHRISTMAS WITH THE CUTIES - CUTE COUPLES

Morning Everyone,

I hope you're having a good Bank Holiday weekend.  The weather has been lovely here so I hope it has for you.

It's time for another challenge at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme this time is "Cute Couples".
This is the card I've made.




This is a LOTV image coloured with copics.  I've added glitter and stickles to the snow and fur on the little girl's coat.  The papers are First Edition and a LOTV sentiment, ribbon, snowflake die cuts and mini pom pom trim finish it off.  I really like the colour way and am pleased with how it's turned out.  I think my daughter and her partner may be getting it for Christmas :) .

The sponsor for the challenge is

AYLI DT - FUR OR FEATHERS

Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite, Fur or Feathers ( and don't forget to explain why please).

It's definitely fur for me.  I like cuddly and cute and I don't really see birds in that way.  It's lovely to have a warm cuddly dog on your knee (which is where ours always seem to want to be!) and they always give you so much love too.

For my card I've used a Wild Rose Studio stamp, Bunny and Butterfly.



I used a sketch from a recent Come and Get It challenge.  My mojo seems to have disappeared somewhere so I found it easier to follow that.  The papers are Nitwit collections and I've used the large Spellbinders floral oval.  The stamp is coloured with copics and I've layered the butterfly. 

The sponsor for this challenge is

LOTV Robin

Afternoon Everyone,

This is a quick card I made with one of the new Christmas LOTV stamps.  It's fairly plain as I seemed to have been short on ideas at the time and wanted to keep it fairly flat for posting.



I've coloured him with copics and used an old pre-printed sentiment (I think from craftwork cards, but not sure).  Papers used are Nitwit collections.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Use Ribbon, twine or lace
Sir Stampalot - Anything Goes

AYLI DT - FAVOURITE EMBELLISHMENT

Morning Everyone

It's time for another challenge at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite embellishment (and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite please).

I have made a baby card for my daughter's friend and although I love all the usual embellishments, i.e. flowers, pearls etc., another of my favourites are the heart shaped doilies.  I love them, they are so pretty, quick and easy to use without adding bulk to a card.



I have used a LOTV image coloured with copics and the papers are First Edition. The sentiment is also LOTV and I've added clear glitter with a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the balloon, stars and bow.

The sponsor for this challenge is

SMALL AND QUICK

Morning Everyone

I hope you've had a good weekend.

I have a little card to share with you today and I do mean little.  It is just over 4 inches, and was super quick to make.  I might do a few more like this.

I had another play with my Reindeer Games stamp set.  I think these reindeer are so cute!  I coloured this little one up and added 2 of the extras you get with the set.  I die cut them out and stuck them onto the stitched circle.

I matted him onto a scrap of red card and then searched through my christmas oddments to find a suitable piece for the the stitched banner from Creative Expressions.


I embossed my fave Merry Christmas sentiment in silver, added glossy accents to his nose and that's it!

I hope you like.
