Christmas travel fun

Today's facebook Sunday's with Santa theme is 'travel' - the nearest I could get is to use some pictures left over from papers I bought a few years ago (think they were Dovecraft) of children travelling on a sledge. I've used up other offcuts that were in my Christmas box, so this is my first card of the week for Pixie's crafty snippets 21.  The trees and sentiments have been in my Christmas box for ages.The background papers are Papermania 'a Christmas carol'.

I've used the sketch for Sketch challenges 4:


and you will see that I made five cards with the same design - these will be another pack ready for my Tearfund sale in the autumn.

Christmas birthday

'Christmas birthday' was the theme for last week's facebook Sunday's with Santa (yes, I'm a week behind - hope to do a card for today's challenge later). We have a lot of family birthdays around Christmas, so it's good to have the prompt to make some in advance.

I've used one of my favourite Greeting Farm Anya stamps that is just right for a winter birthday, colouring the image with copics and mounting on a piece of red polka dot card. I've put diamond stickles on the edges of the coat to add a bit of sparkle. The stamp is for All that scraps Wednesday challenge: anything goes.

I followed the sketch for Mojo Monday 241:

I used black, white and red for:

Farm fresh Friday
Addicted to stamps 30: white, black and ?
Lexi 65: black and white plus one other colour
Anything goes 67: colour combo - black with one other
Paper crafting journey 9: black + one other colour

Papers are 7 gypsies life noir and adore. The sentiment was generated on my dymo letratag and mounted on to a die cut label. The crocheted flowers have been combined with a couple of craftime flowers, the larger one held together with a material covered brad.
