I have had this wee Scrapberry Image coloured for a wee while now. I just couldn't decide on what papers to pair it up with. It finally came to me the other night that it would go perfectly with these papers from Spunky Tart. (Well I think so anyway - Haha). I added my doily to break it up a bit. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions. The circle and oval are dies from MFT. A very simple card as usual from me I am going to enter this card into The Sugar Bowl Challenge where they have an anything goes theme.

Another Christmas card down. This one seemed to take a while, but it turned out good, so all is well. Another cute digi stamp by Tiddly Inks, coloured with Copics. The challenge over at Tiddly Inks is don't be square. I think that is probably why it took so long - haha. The papers are by Dovecraft. The holly is a die from Spellbinders and the ovals are from MFT.

Another Christmas card done. And I'm quite liking this one. It is an A5 card, but I think it turned out OK. I normally make square cards, either 5" or 6". But I think I could make some more of this size. The cute Kitty is from High Hopes and is part of their new release. The papers are 12x12 from Dovecrafts. I have had them a few years now. Oh and the doily is a few years older than them. I thought they were cute, but didn't know how to use them really. Yay, I found a way. Haha. And the sentiment is from Crafty Impressions. I am going to enter this wee Guy into the High Hopes Challenge where the theme is Christmas/Halloween/Fall. I also want to enter it into the Challenge over at Papertake Weekly where the theme is Christmas.

Kraftin Kimmie challenge entry. And funnily enough the theme is monochrome. When I see monochrome I automatically see black and white, so here I have a black and white card. I used this image from a set of two. The papers are from an old Papermania pad. I will be sad to see these finish (now I have finally started to use them).

Yay, more Christmas cards. I can do this - haha. Well over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps they have a challenge on the go where the theme is animals. So I got this wee Penguin out for another few Christmas cards. Again following the September sketch from Kraftin Kimmie. The papers are freebies that I have had for a while. And a wee tag added and a few rhinestones and a simple Christmas card is made. So I made four. Haha. I am entering these into the Challenge over at Papertake Weekly where the theme is Animal Magic.

I really need to get into Christmas mode real soon. I've been wanting to find a simple design to make a few cards at a time. And the Sept sketch over at Kraftin Kimmie was perfect for it. The papers were a freebie from a magazine. I don't normally use them, but thought they were too nice to just hide on a shelf. And of course the image is from Kraftin Kimmie. The Saturday Challenge is to use a tag, so I added the sentiment from Taylored Expressions in a tag shape. So anyway, I made 4 cards for my stash - yay, way to go me.

The theme over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge is School Rules. I don't usually do the School theme challenges - what, with having no Kiddies in School. But this time I decided to give it a go. My Cousin's wee Girl has just stated her second year in School, so I used her for my inspiration. I'll maybe send her a wee sweetie or something to go with the card. This wee sweetie is from Tiddly Inks and was a dream to colour. I don't usually use these colours, but think they turned out quite nice. The papers are from Sweet Shoppe Designs - High Octane by Heather Roselli. And the wee Hugs and Kisses is a stamp from Taylored Expressions. I kept picturing enamel dot things on this, but as I don't have any I punched a few dots. I am also entering her into the Papertake Weekly Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes.

Finished another card, this time for the Challenge over at The Sugar Bowl. I have used an oldie for this one, which has been coloured for a very long time too. I have used a stamp by Mary Hall, but I don't think it is available any more. The bit of paper I have used is from Lili of the Valley. I have followed an older sketch from Sketch Saturday, and luckily they have a take your pick (from past sketches) theme going this week. The dies I have used are all MFT.
