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.


  1. Love your Santa card. You really used the sketch well. Thanks for playing along at Winter Wonderland. Hope to see you back next week. Marianne x

  2. Love the buttons and the border, I think it is a cool boycard!

    Love from AFA?!


  3. This is a wonderful interpretation of yes I agree, what seemed quite a difficult sketch. You have made it look so easy and the colours are crisp and winter like. Yes I found Santa and he is beautifully coloured.

    Hugs and Happy Packing Kate xx
