High Hopes #182

The challenge over at High Hopes is red and green. So of course I made a Christmas card. This cutie is from last years Christmas releases (I think) and I love him. But then I do have a wee soft spot for Penguins. I don't know who the paper is by. I found it amongst my mega sized stash of papers. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley. It is green, but I'm not sure it shows up too well. I added a bit of ribbon and 3 wee rhinestones. I also want to enter it into the challenge over at Winter Wonderland where they want to see red and green too.

The Sugar Bowl 106

My entry into The Sugar Bowl Challenge. Which again is anything goes. I am also entering it into the Sugar Nellie Facebook Challenge which is to use your favourite Sugar Nellie image. Now that was the hard part, I mean come on - how can you choose eh. Well I kinda did - I chose Pippi Longsocks, she is defo one of my faves anyway. The papers are more Sweet Shoppe Designs - Sweet Sixteen by Melissa Bennett. The wavy die is Spellbinders and the buttons and flower are MFT dies. The sentiment is by Personal Impressions. And my wee froggy is an old Quickutz die. See I knew they would come in handy someday.

Penny Black Winter Wonderland

 I'm now getting into Christmas mode. But I still have some Birthday cards I need to make, so I guess it wont last long. Well I got this Penny Black stamp in the sale at The Glitterpot and I'm lovin it. It goes well with these Papermania papers from last year. I am entering this card into the challenge over at Winter Wonderland where the theme is red, white and kraft. I love seeing everyone's colouring on kraft so decided to give it a go. Thinking now, I might prefer it on white. Anyway, the image is cut out with a nestie. The sentiment is Cats Life Press and the Poinsettia is a Marianne D die.
I have also coloured on white and made this card into an easel card. The bottom sentiment is by Crafty Impressions. I am entering this one into the challenge over at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Monthly Challenge where they have an anything goes theme every month.
