Kid's craft

As part of National Scrapbooking Day, Hiding in my craftroom are running five challenges, one of which is NSD 4: kid's craft.

With the help of picas collages, I've made a12 x 12 LO using pictures of our granddaughters crafting when they have visited us.

This is also for:

Stampin' royalty 122: scrapbooking
Our daily bread 107: scrapbook LO

Black and white baubles with a hint of glittery pink

For this fortnight's theme for the Christmas Card Club, Carol has chosen 'ribbon and lace (real or punched'. The Christmas Card Club is a group of crafters who set challenges for one another every other week to help us get ahead with making Christmas cards throughout year. The list of those in the CCC are in my sidebar - if you would like to join us, please contact one of us.

I've used the large Papermania 'bauble decoration' stamp, inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail black powder (unfortunately, you only get a hint of the gloss of the embossing on the photo).

The punched black lace is a Martha Stewart punch with a glittered hot pink ribbon added above it.

This is also for Sunday's with Santa facebook challenge for week 19: baubles.

And inspired by the photo inspiration challenge on Winter wonderland:

Suzie's 365 photos day 126: rough

A number of choices for day 126: rough - I thought of sandpaper, brickwork, wooden fencing ... in the end I settled on Brillo pads:


CHNC challenge 71: stripes

It's time for a new challenge on my CHNC blog and for challenge 71 I'm asking to see some stripes - easy peasy!

For my card I've used the square sketch for Mojo Monday 239:


All the DCWV papers used are from my Christmas offcuts box, so good for Pixie's crafty snippets 18.

I love pink and black together and this combo is for Charisma cardz 17: pink & black. Pink, black and white is one of my favourite colour combo (I confess that I don't have just one favourite combo, but quite a few!) so this is for Crafts and me 82: favourite colour combo.
