Wishful Thinking...

Good Morning everyone, Happy Monday! 


Today's card is my 'same but different' project for Sherri Baldy's

My Besties UK

This month we have all used the same gorgeous Sherri Baldy image -
Best Snow Day Ever Bestie
available to by
HERE
in Sherri Baldy's wonderful Etsy Store.

This is not a challenge just a bit of fun so to have a chance of winning this gorgeous digi, just pop to 
and leave a comment for the design team - simples!

The winner will be picked at random on New Challenge day - the first Monday in January.
I hope you don't think I took the soft option here!  I am finding such fun in colouring that my cards seem to be getting a bit simple.

I have coloured Sherri's gorgeous digi Best Snow Day Ever Bestie with Copics and mounted the image on a piece of pearlescent card embossed with falling snow.

I have added some clear gems, a snowflake and a simple sentiment to finish things off.

...and here we are, surely such a cutie can't be on the naughty list!...

Oh Deer...

Hello lovely friends,

There is a new challenge starting today at
and it is
Merry Christmas

The prize for the lucky winner is some wonderful card toppers by
which have kindly been donated by our lovely DT Leader 

I have made something completely different for today's DT inspiration.

I saw something similar on my lovely friend Debs' blog and almost set fire to my purse with the speed that I bought the MDF kit from Noor! Designs!

I absolutely loved putting this gorgeous winter scene together; 
(I have a bit of a soft spot for reindeer).

so, here we are, a sweet Christmas tableau to wish you all the very best and merriest of Christmas wishes...
I would like to enter this project for the following challenges - 
Noor! Design UK - Winter Wonderland

Ingredients
MDF Templates 'Winter Set' by Noor! Design
A selection of papers by Graphic 45, Teresa Collins and Papermania.
Claudia Helmuth's Multi Medium
Tim Holtz Pearl Paint Dabber
Winter Flowers, Berries and Bells from my stash
oooh I meant to say, if you want to make this adorable set remember to put your shapes on the right side of your papers to draw round them before cutting out, otherwise you might end up with an adorable selection of Christmas trees and reindeers all facing the wrong way!  (Not that I (ahem), did that, (coughs and rolls eyes), you understand)!

Skating away...

Good Morning everyone...

We have a new challenge starting today at 
In The Pink
and it is
a pink Christmas!

The prize for the lucky winner is 
a $15 voucher for 
Paper Nest Dolls
My card today is something little different from me. I was uncertain how this would turn out when I started but I absolutely love it!

I bought this wonderful stamp last week when I went to
Pink Tulip Creations
to see my lovely friends Sheila, Tracy and Angela.

The stamp is by Impression Obsession and is number F13371 - Skaters.

I made the background with my Copic Air System and opted for a fairly simple layout.  I used Frantage to create falling snow and added a Lawn Fawn die cut.

...and here we are, two cuties skating away (on the thin ice of the new day for any Jethro Tull fans out there)...
