Friday Sketches & The Sugar Bowl

First up, we have a card following the sketch over at Friday Sketches. The little paper that I used is from Pink Petticoat and the image is Papermania. I stamped it in silver and then clear embossed it. I wanted to do a few simple cards and add a bit of Tartan. So I thought this sketch would be good for that. The snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch. Printed the text and mounted all on silver mirri card and added 3 wee rhinestones to finish.

And then we have a card for The Sugar Bowl. A fab sketch by Kathy. They also wanted you to use lace. I used one of the Gorjuss Girls from set 3 with Basic Grey papers. You can just about see the lace by the sentiment. Yeah - it is there. The sentiment is from Woodware. I added a few rhinestones to finish off.

Winter Wonderland & Mo's Digi

I decided to make a gift bag, after my Sister asked if I could make her a couple. So this is the first one. Her friend is into cats, so I thought it was the perfect one for Mo's Challenge, which is anything but a card. I coloured the image in with chalks, but I'm not convinced. I have used several snowflake punches - EK Success border, Martha Stewart and Hobbycraft. The poinsettia is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the paper is Pink Petticoat. I have printed the sentiment directly onto the backing paper. I also added a wee charm, but I now think that it should maybe have been a snowflake. But hey - it's done ow. Anyway, I can also enter it into the Winter Wonderland Challenge, as they want stockings. I knew it would come good eh.

And I have also managed a card for A Spoonful of Sugar which is a sketch. Again I have used Pink Petticoat papers and Poinsettia, with a couple of craftwork card candy thingies.

Winter Wonderland

Over at Winter Wonderland the theme is Gingerbread. Not my usual theme I must admit. I looked around for something, then decided to look on a CD. I found a CD by The Orange Blossom, and decided to have a look for a gingerbread house. Nope, no house, but hey - it did have a gingerbread man. Perfect. So I printed it off along with the background paper and had a wee play around. This was the final result. I had to draw a Santa hat for him. Punched out a few snowflakes and printed the text, matted onto kraft paper and voila, we have a finished card.

And finally, a big Thank you to Judy for the candy I won. It arrived last week, when the Hubby was off sick, so I didn't get to play much. But he had a wee play, and was rather impressed. Gotta keep them happy eh. So thanks again.

Friday Sketches & Kraftin Kimmie

I have kinda followed the sketch over at Friday Sketches for this card. I say kinda, cos I didn't have an oval big enough for this image. So I rounded the corners instead. I hope this still counts. But - hey ho - if not, I'm still entering it into Kraftin Kimmie's first challenge. Yep - this super cute image is by Kraftin' Kimmie and the theme over there is Birthdays. A nice and simple one. I used papers from a download by Zoe Pearn from Sweet Shoppe Designs.

Whiff of Joy Birthday

The Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog is celebrating it's Birthday. They have a sketch by Rach for the challenge this week. I'm cutting it a bit fine right enough. But here it is anyway. I have used the fab Henry mouse with his hot chocolate for this one. The papers are Papermania and I printed the text. The snowflakes are Martha Stewart punches.

Penny Black & Cute Card Thursday

I have 2 card to show you today. The first one is for Penny Black S C. They want to see Autumn colours. I chose these orange papers from a Chris Warner CD, I just love these. The flowers are Prima.

And my second card is for Cute Card Thursday, and they want to see charms. I have used this super cute stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie's new stamp range. I just had to get this one. I have tried to colour it in similar to my wee Jack - Bonnie. Yes - I know I have 3 - but, well, Bonnie is the only one to have spots on her back like this one. I'll try the others when I get a bit more adventurous. I coloured her in with Copics. I don't usually like black with these, but I don't think I have done too bad with this one. The papers are MME - Wild Asparagus.

Friday Sketches & Mo's Digital Pencil

I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketches for this card. The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called Swine flu. Anyway - the Hubby is into pigs, so this caught my eye straight away - maybe not quite the pig thing he is into right enough. Well, he's been off work with the flu this week, so it was the perfect image to get. The 1st challenge over at Mo's Digital Pencil is the colour "perple" - so the colour "perple" they will get. The papers are a download from Sweet shoppe Designs from the sale section. I printed out the text and added 2 wee buttons and 3 rhinestones.

Winter Wonderland

I thought I had better get in quick with my card for Winter Wonderland, since I never got round to posting my gift bag last week. And boy - I think I must be getting braver. I've loved the look of these kind of cards, but kinda stick to good ol stamped images. But hey - I thought I would give it a go and kinda like it. Although I'm not too sure about the reins. But it did need something for Santa to control those Reindeer. The paper is Funky Hand and all the elements (apart from the snowflakes) are cut on the Cricut from the Christmas Cheer cartridge. I printed out the Merry Christmas and matted on silver mirri board. And yes - I had to give a Reindeer a shiny red nose with a rhinestone. I coloured Santa in - I couldn't be bothered with the wee fiddly bits - but he looks OK.

And yeah - here's last weeks gift bag - kinda late, but it's here.

Image is Ladybug and Friends. Papers - Funky Hand. Punches used were - Martha Stewart Icicle border and snowflake and Hobbycraft snowflake. Sentiment - printed out.

High Hopes and A Spoonful of Sugar

Over on the High Hopes challenge they want you to use lots of layers. This is lots to me. And over at A Spoonful of Sugar they want a Christmas card. So I thought I would get them both done with this one. The image is of course High Hopes. The papers are Papermania - Deck the Halls. I have cuttlebug embossed snowflakes behind Santa and printed out the text. I have added a bit of ribbon and 3 dew drops. Pretty simple really.
