Out come the fibres again

For this card I've used the sketch for A la card monkey 69, which also asked for the card to be sympathy or thinking of you:

and I've used the colour combo for ColourQ 98:

This is also good for Crafts and me 48: blues or blue/greens.

Once again I raided my offcuts box, so this is for City crafter 70: scrap happy, and Jules crafty snippet challenge 32.

I haven't used any fibres for ages and ages (I remember a few years ago when they were very popular in cardmaking) - anyway, I got out the box and chose this eyelash lime green one. This is for this week's The paper variety challenge to use threads.

Why is it that the flash photo has made the brown brad (used three different colours deliberately) look more like red? Ah well! The brads are for 4 crafty chicks 51: metal, Sew many challenges 64: 3 or more brads, and also for Digi design house 12 recipe week 1: 3 brads, 2 patterned papers and 1 floss.

The sentiment is a Hobbycraft stamp inked with memento rich cocoa.

This is also for:

Fussy & fancy 43: use a lot - pick any embellishment and show at least 3 (brads)

Happy Kiss-mas!

A quick clean and simple card this morning, bearing in mind that Bah! humbug 32 'kiss'mas closes at lunchtime today and we're going up to Guy's this morning, so I would miss the deadline if I waited till we got back. And today's CCEE1133 is 'kiss'.

I used up scraps of BG wassail, mainly left from making this card yesterday. The main background paper is the one I used to cut the nestie scalloped circle for yesterday's card - covering it up today with the printed image, which is a Dottie Christmas download, appropriately called Christmas kiss - so this is for City crafter 70: scrap happy, and Jules crafty snippet challenge 32. The sentiment was computer generated.

This is another one for my own CHNC challenge 33: simply Christmas - if you haven't yet discovered my Christmas challenge blog, why not hop over there and take the opportunity to start on your Christmas cards - it makes sense to do so if you haven't yet started them because we'll be into September now before you know it.

This is also for Sylvie's challenge for this fortnight on the Christmas card club (there's a list in my sidebar - just click on one of the names and contact if you'd like details of the club) - Sylvie asked us to use mistletoe.

This is also for:

Christmas inspirations 31: clean and simple
Tuesday throwdown 62: non-stamped sentiment
Shopping our stash 13: your weakest link - patterned papers, but particularly BG 6 x 6 pads - I've got most of them (I apologise that I went over the limit of challenges - I'll submit another entry)
