Mark the date on the calendar

Yes, I know it's far too early to make the date on the calendar, but Christmas day is marked on this calendar stamped with Sally Moret stamps with the month and day circled.

This is for Everybody art 180: calendar.

I've used an offcut of My Mind's Eye Christmas glitter paper (left over from a 12 x 12 paper), so this is another entry for Pixie's Crafty Snippets 8.

The 'Holidays' panel with reindeer and lights and the gift are chipboard and the holly is an Anna Griffin 3D sticker.

Bling and wings and pretty things

Kath's challenge on Crafts by Carolyn for TTC12-02 is 'bling and wings and pretty things'. I've been meaning to do something for this, but the days have gone by all too quickly, but here is a card at last.

I've used the sketch for Cards und more 47:


The card blank is one from a recently-acquired set - the pattern is the same on the back of the card. The embossed scalloped circle with butterflies is recycled from a car received years ago, mounted on a doiley, with the addition of some flowers and Poundland gems.

Colours are for Cupcake inspirations 148:

18 2DAY

This is a shaped card that I've had for ages - I think it was originally from Craftwork Cards in with some other shaped ones. Anyway, it was ready embossed, so I distressed with fired brick DI and used yellow stickles for the headlights and little side lights and a C3 copic grey on the wheel. The number plate was generated with my dymo letratag.

This looks more red IRL - rather pink on this photo!
