All wrapped up

'All wrapped up' is the name of the digi image from Shelly's that I've used on this card. I coloured him with copics, cut with a nestie and distressed the edges with stormy sky DI while the nestie was still on the image (did this the other day for another card and liked the effect).

The background paper is a freebie from a magzine and the two squares are scraps from the My mind's eye Christmas glitter book.

This is for the Facebook group 'Sunday's with Santa' challenge 32: snowmen/snowladies.

I've used the sketch given for Christmas challenges with sketches 6 (please click on the link to see the sketch within the challenge post).

Letter to Santa

I don't know, of course, who the letter's going to, but I'm guessing that this little girl is sending her letter to Santa.

For this Christmas card I've used the sketch for Jac-inks 14:

This is for Kerry's challenge for the Christmas Card gang (for more info please get in touch with one of us listed in my sidebar). Kerry asked us to include a robin, some holly and the option of adding a postbox.

The stamped image I've used was part of a little set given with Quick Cards last year, coloured with copics. The three papers were all freebies with a magazine. The 3D holly sticker is from Anna Griffin.

Come and get it Guest Design slot

Having been shown as one of the top three for a recent challenge on Come and get it, I was invited to be a Guest Designer, so here is my card for today's colour challenge: 'black, white and red'.

The black and white hearts background is Kanban (part of a black and white kit I bought ages ago).

The strawberry cupcake image is from Delicious Doodles, one of the digis bought with my 10$ coupon at Stitchy Bear digital stamps - I won it recently for a Winter Wonderland challenge 'red & green should not be seen'. I just coloured the strawberry with a copic. Stitched ribbon, white lace and sentiment from stash.
