Love script

This card is for the sketch for Technostamper Monday lunchtime 211:


It's also for Less is more 58: script - a one layer card.

The heart stamp is an old one that was a freebie with Craft Stamper, stamped with stazon blazing red (I know, it looks more like pink) and masked three times. These were then all masked to stamp the new Tim Holtz script stamp over that using memento tuxedo black. So I'm also linking for Incy wincy 136: something old/new, also Kort o mania 58: something old.
This is also for The squirrel and the fox 13: love

Howzat!

I need to make a few more men's cards before my sale next Saturday, so I'm glad of any inspiration I can get from challenges to help me get on with them.

This card is for Cards for men 5 sketch:


The cricketer is a stamped image from the Papermania nostalgia pastimes set designed by John Byars. This was coloured with copics, although not much colouring was required. All papers were from my offcus box, so another opportunity to play on the swings in Pixie's crafty snippets 11 playground, Hiding in my craftroom 37: super scraps Saturday and Crafty calendar March: spring clean; 'spring cleaning' is also the theme for Just some lines - to use at least two items that are at least six months old - not only all the offcuts are old, but the stamp set is well over six months old (and I confess that until now un-inked!)

Birthday sundaes 47: use green


Suzie's 365 day 71: hiding

This is a tough one, but I suddenly thought about my wood mounted rubber stamps (I can't really miss them because the shelves are above where I'm sitting). They are housed on the shelves one behind the other, so some of them are 'hiding', but I know what's there! So this is Suzie's day 71: hiding:


Jolly holly

The theme for today on Facebook Sunday's with Santa is 'holly', so out come the Anna Griffin supplies again for a simple card.

This is also another one for my own challenge CHNC 63: glam it up with glitter, as the red and white paper is very glittery - also Crafty boots: glitter and Dilly Beans: I love glitter.

And ABC Christmas challenge is E for evergreen, which includes holly.


Christmas ski girl

This card is for Sally's challenge for the Christmas Card Club with a 'winter sport' theme, so I chose a Squiggle Stamps digital image called 'ski girl', colouring her with copics. I've used the sketch given on Christmas challenges with sketches 21, which also has the theme 'baby it's cold outside' - please click on the link to see the sketch.

All card and papers used are from my Christmas offcuts box, so this is my first venture into the playground this week for Pixie's crafty snippets 11 (and, boy, do I need a time in the playground ... life is a bit difficult atm, so crafting and playing on the swings with friends is very welcome) - also for Hiding in my craftroom 37: super scraps Saturday and Crafty calendar March: spring clean; 'spring cleaning' is also the theme for Just some lines - to use at least two items that are at least six months old - not only all the offcuts are old, but also the 3D stickers and sentiment too. I was crafty today and even used a piece of card to back the image that had previously been used to punch out some snowflakes - the holey bits are well hidden.

I coloured her hair red for iCopic lover 72: red hair colouring.

This was one of those 'difficult to photo' cards because of all the shine on the foiling and mirror card behind the image.
