The Sugar Bowl #34

Here is my entry for The Sugar Bowl. They have a fab sketch by Tiets and also want you to use punches. I had this image by Leanne Ellis half coloured in, so thought I would finish her off. The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs, I think they are by Kristin Cronin-Barrow. I punched out the flowers and the circles in the centres and the sentiment is a Whimsy postmark stamp.

Look at this fab candy. Rach is celebrating her new blog and is offering some candy. Hanglar and Stangler stamps and Tim Holtz paper. How cool is that. I have added the link on my sidebar, if you just click on the picture.

Winter Wonderland embossing

The challenge over at Winter Wonderland is embossing. I'm running a bit late with this one - but hopefully not too late. I quite like this card and its simple ness. I used an embossing folder from Crafts too for the tree and the papers are Pink Petticoat. I printed the Special Couple directly onto the paper then printed the Merry Christmas and cut with a nestie. Added some tartan ribbon and some stickles and rhinestones to the tree. I inked around the edges with Distress inks. I think I might just have to make a few more of these.

Winter Wonderland

Over at Winter Wonderland they have a sketch for you to follow and want to see a Bunny on your card. I went with my Kraftin Kimmie Bunny and used papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs by Zoe Pearn. My Bunny is a bit too big for my oval right enough, but that's the biggest oval I had. I printed out the text and cut it out with a nestie.

The Sugar Bowl #32

I just had to enter the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl this week. You get to pick your sketch from past sketches. I decided to choose the sketch from challenge #8. I think this was my first challenge I entered - by e-mail. If not the first, close to it. I have used papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs, by Dani. Lovin' these papers at the mo. I've had them for a while, but didn't realise just how much I loved them. The Friend is also from the download. I punched a few flowers out and added some rhinestones. I bought some of these pins and wanted to see how it would look - hence stuck behind the Friend. But hey - I'm kinda liking it there.

I thought I would show you the original card. These papers are from a Chris Warner CD.

Mo's Digital Pencil #25

I have made this one for the challenge over at Mo's Digital challenge. They are wanting you to use pastel colours. So I made another simple one with these Papermania papers and punched a wee strip with my Martha Stewart punch. Added a bit of ribbon and 3 craftwork candies and that was me. But the photo is looking rather squint.

Winter Wonderland & Anyone for Anya

Yay - I'm back. But probably not for long. I'm supposed to be packing - on the move again, but decided I would have a play instead. We've still got a wee while to go, but I guess the panic will set in when I realise it will all have to be done - fast. But til then I'll have my wee play. Anyway, first up is my card for Winter Wonderland. They have a sketch and want to see Santa somewhere. Can you spot him - yeah. I thought the sketch looked a bit technical at first, but once I got going, things kinda fell into place. The papers are Pink Petticoat, the Santa is High Hopes and the Ho,Ho,Ho is Cuddly Buddly. I couldn't let the card pass without a punched snowflake, so put one in the middle square. I printed out the Merry Christmas and added some wee rhinestones.

And my second card is for the challenge over at Anyone for Anya where they too have a sketch. I have kept it pretty simple (oh OK - very simple) as I usually do with Boy cards. All the papers are Basic Grey and I added 3 wee buttons in the corner. The image is from The Greeting Farm. I was going to add some text, but thought I would leave that til I decide who it's for.
