Hi there all, its time for another card for the Christmas card gang !!! This time our challenge was set by Sylvie. She challenged us to make a card with mistletoe on !! Mmm ...... I searched through my things and didn't find much so I chose this forever Friends image. Great challenge thanks Sylvie, now my craft room needs a tidy to put back all my things for looking for something with mistletoe on !!! hehe !!!

Of course I got the glitter out and glittered up the hat, and tree and star !!! Blinged the snowflakes (Martha Stewart punches) and used a tag stamp from I think Whimsey Stamps !

Our next challenge is set by Margaret to use only white and some glitter .............. yikes I have no idea !!! NEVER made an all white card before so it sure is going to be a challenge !!! Go check out the other ladies great cards they are on my sidebar !!! If anyone fancies joining our group of gals then email anyone of us !!

Its Christmas !!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi there everyone !!! This week at Crafts for Eternity the challenge is to show us your Christmas projects !!! This is my Christmas card for my best friend, I know she doesn't look on here so I am ok listing it !!!! hehe !!!

I used a House Mouse Stamp, coloured using water colour pencils and glittered up !!! Papers are from Nitwits and the sentiment I downloaded of the internet !! I am so not good at writing verses ! As its such a large verse I thought an easel card would be more fitting ! And of course I had to add some bling too !!!! Border punch is a Martha Stewart one as are the leaves !! I hope my friend likes it !

Its fabby !!! I finally got to play with it yesterday as I got the cards I needed to make out the way so I could play !!!! I just LOVE Tatty Teddy he is sooooooooooooo cute !!!

I printed the image to fit my card and papers to match, got my beloved cricut machine out for the Thinking of you sentiment (from Sentmentals cartridge) and used some K&Co glittered flowers that matched the colours I had chosen !!

Xmas card club challenge card - Kerry's !!

Well I had to think on this one I have to say ............. then I went shopping !!! hehe !!! Well I had to go shopping to soothe quell my patience for a Tatty teddy CD!!!! Ooohhhh can't wait to get hold of one !!! But in the meantime I settled for the new Fizzy Moon Festive Fun stamps !!! LOVING them !!! Kerry's challenge was for a robin, holly and possibly a postbox if desired ! So I have a robin sat on the fence and holly on the paper and around the flowers !!! No postbox desired tho sorry !!!

I coloured Fizzy Moon with promarkers and water colour pencils. The bears used Satin, Sandstone and the blender pen to create the lighter patches. Of course I had to glitter up the snow too !!!

I used my new Spellbinder square die, the swirl is from Marianne dies, holly is a Martha Stewart punch and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts also glittered up!! Paper is Holiday Magic from Nitwits and the sentiment stamp from Liliy of the Valley !! Phew ................. Oh yes I had to add bling too !!!!

So enjoyed making this !!! Please go check out the other ladies blogs they are listed on my side bar !!! Have a great day !

I coloured the image using promarkers. Blush and soft peach for the skin, Buttercup for the stars and Pale pink and Antique Pink for her clothes !! Plus of course the blender pen !!! The paper is from a pack by Dove Craft I picked up at the NEC earlier in the year !!

Hope you like them !!!

Blue and White at Crafts 4 Eternity

Hi there all !!!

The challenge this week over at Crafts 4 Eternity is a Colour Recipe. Blue and cream or white using this image as inspiration !!!

Our sponsor this week is Stamping Dragon. I used Floral Frame one on my card, extending the tabs on the digi stamp across my card using ribbon ! I layered up the frame to give dimension and effect for the flowers which I glittered up with Stickles. I also used the Floral heart stamp to make backing paper with which you can see between the ribbons ! I just love butterflies so I had to add some of those to go with the paper and of course bling !!!!

I really enjoyed making this card ! It got me some peace and quiet while I did it (I think I took longer over it just to escape the bedlam in the house !!! hehe !!) Hope you like it too.
Remember to pop over and check out the other team members blogs (listed on my side bar) and come join the fun !!


We have 2 prizes this week!!
Our regular sponsor Nicky is giving one winner 3 downloads of their choice

And our 2nd sponsor Janette is offering 4 images of your choice!!

Here is a little bit about Janette:
Hi my name is Janette aka Stamping Dragon Designs/Dragons Lair Designs. I live in the UK with my two children and puddy tat. I started with Graphic Design in 2001, initially creating sig tags in AOL groups but, moved on and found digital scrapbooking. It wasn’t long before that, I started making my own kits under the Dragons Lair Designs name and the rest as they say is history. Two years ago I was introduced to digital stamps and started drawing and before I knew it Stamping Dragon Designs was born. I am now not only addicted to scrapbooking my photo's but making cards too. All I need now is more hours in a day.
