The Sugar Bowl 139

Well, isn't time flying by. Yep - it's time for the challenge over at Sugar Nellie again. As always it is an anything goes theme, but make sure you use an image that you can get over at Funky Kits. I decided to make a Christmas Tag this month. I have been seeing cards with an acetate curve at the front. So I decided to try it, but on a tag. And I am quite liking it. So I cut the tag using the largest die from MFT Tag Die. The trees are from Impressions Obsessions, the snow drifts are MFT. The star is from Memory Box. I decided to give it a snowy feel by adding some Stampendous chunky embossing powder. Of course I used the super sweet mini Gorjuss Girl #10 Purrfect Love. I just love all the Gorjuss range and there is a great range of them over at Funky Kits. And finished off with a bit of ribbon.

I don't know if you can see the acetate any better in this one. But it is there I promise. I coloured her with Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps. So what you waiting for - hop on over to The Sugar Nellie Blog and see what everyone else has made. There is a super prize of 4 stamps to be won, but you have gotta be in it to win it.
I am going to enter this wee cutie into the ABC Christmas Challenge where the theme is O for overlay. I think the acetate covers that.

Sketch Saturday 419

A moving card from me today. I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday for this one and actually quite like how it turned out. The image is from Simply Betty Stamps called Moving Betty. The one and only paper is First Edition and the feathers are a Joy craft die. I printed the sentiment and added an MFT die cut button and some twine. I even managed to hand it over without putting 3 rhinestones on somewhere. Quickly before I changed my mind - haha.
