It's Christmas

 Two cards from me today. Thought I really should make a start on my Christmas cards, so here we are. My first card is a Christmas card which I want to enter into The Winter Wonderland Challenge, where they want to see a Boy and a Girl. I had a look through my stamps, and thought I don't actually have loads with two together. So I went with an older stamp from Whimsy stamps. And since there is a cute lil Snowman, I want to enter it into the Challenge over at Sweet Stampin Christmas, where they want to see a Snowperson. The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs - A Joyous Christmas by Julie Billingsley, matted on red card and a little bit of ribbon. The sentiment is also a download (of which I can't find at the mo, but will be back to let you know). I also want to enter it into the challenge over at Crafty hazelnuts Christmas Challenge xtra - July, where the theme is anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

And finally my next card is for my next Sugar Bowl entry. Thought I would sneak another one in before the deadline. For this card I have used another older stamp Upside Down by Diane Duda from Sugar Nellie. The papers are K&Co (another oldie) and the sentiment is Personal Impressions. I added a few different punched Butterflies.

Simply Betty Evil Facebook Challenge

I decided to go with Evil for the challenge over at Simply Betty's Facebook Challenge. But I have decided I really don't do evil. I think it still looks kinda cute. You got the choice of evil or good for the challenge. You got a different mermaid, depending which you chose, for free. They were both cute (so I bought the other one - shh). They now have several cute mermaids in store, so can see another shopping spree coming on. Anyway, back to my card. The papers are downloads from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Spooky Ooky by Fee Jardine. I added the ribbon, after colouring it with my Copic marker. A Marianne Designs Anchor die (I'm lovin this die just now). The sentiment was included with the Mermaid.

The Sugar Bowl 105

I'm into black and white cards at the mo. And what can be cuter than a black and white fairy. I'm no good at colouring the skin in black, so have gone with normal skin and hair colours. Anyway, my card is my entry into The Sugar Bowl Challenge. The image is of course a Sugar Nellie stamp - The Story Teller. The papers are an old Papermania pad and the sentiment is Personal Impressions. A few Craftwork card candy and a bit of Menzies Tartan Ribbon. I am also entering it into The Sugar Nellie Facebook Challenge, which is an easy anything goes.
