Christmas joy

This card is for SAS sketch 43:


It's also for:

Cooking it up with Katie 6: 'use a brad (the snowflake one in the middle of the glittered flowers), use something in 3's (I used three ribbons, three flowers layered and 3 buttons), use red - BG wassail and eskimo papers and red card base.
Susie's sassy 3: 'buttons and bows'
Hand full of stamps 7: 'basic buttons' - only black or white
Saturday spotlight 10: 'Christmas flowers'
Creatalicious 4: include snowflakes and lots of sparkle/glitter - the brad is a snowflake and the flowers are very glittered
Pile it on 27: 'tinsel town' - glitter
Fiskarettes: 'glitter and glitz'
Everybody art 69: red/green
Crafty catz 11: 'colour challenge - green, red and silver (silver on the flowers)

Rosie-dee 59: 'red, green and a bit of bling!
Kelly Jo color chef 32: 'red, green, white or cream'

The 'joy' chipboard is Brenda Pinnick.

Traditional seasons greetings

The colours in this card are for Kelly Jo color chef 32: 'red, green, white or cream, also for Everybody art 69: 'red/green' and Stampavie and more 73: 'red and green'.

There are lots of stars here and, of course, the special one. Both Penny's challenges and Quixotic 6 this week have 'stars' as their theme.

There are flourishes on the Dovecraft paper down the side - Creative Belli 80: 'flourishes'.

Stained glass nativity scene

A very simple card, using this lovely stained glass nativity scene, which uses the colours of 365 cards day 250: 'marvellous Mondrian'.

The background paper is English paper company (I've nearly used up all of this - I'll be sad to see it go).

This is another card for Cupcake 69: 'sing a Christmas carol' - this time 'In the bleak mid-winter'.

Christmas wishes

Brrrrr ... this card is making me feel cold - although it can look lovely when it first snows, I hope we don't get any like this!

Today's challenge on 365 cards is 'DIY sketches' - 'design your own sketch and create a card based on that sketch'. So here is my simple sketch:


The card uses colours for Diva stamper 17 and also has enough white, I hope, to link for Divine dollies colour challenge: 'the dollies are all dressed in white'.

It's also another for Lots to do 49: 'snow' (plenty of the white stuff on this card!) and 'let it snow' is the theme on today's Simon says challenge.

It's another one for One powerful hour 'wishes' , also Cafe mojo 'wishes for the holidays!!' (it's so sad that CM is closing soon) and another for Saturday surprise 'winter wonderland'.

Appropriate also for Cupcake 69: 'sing a Christmas carol' - 'See amid the winter snow' and another for PaperPlay 44: Christmas without red or green.

Background papers are once again BG.

Winter angel

Once again I've used the little Dovecraft picture with an angel, this time with some BG background paper and a simple sentiment.

It's for:

Flutter by Wednesday
87: 'winter' - with a butterfly, fairy or angel
My time to craft 69: 'Christmas foliage' - a second one for this, this time there is foliage on the background as well as in the picture
SPCC color combo 27: brocade blue, kraft, bashful blue
PaperPlay 44: 'Christmas without red or green' (only a little bit of green here - hope that will be excused)
