Another new home card


For this card I've used the same image as the previous card, just making it bigger - once again, coloured with spectrum noirs (they are fast taking over from copics, which I used to prefer).

This card is based on the sketch for Sweet Sunday sketch 196:


The card blank was ready decorated and I added a piece of embossed card on the right and some scraps across the top and behind the image.

New home


I've been a bit absent from blogland in the last few days, for a few reasons, one being that I have a card sale at a friend's home tomorrow. I've been making cards, but no time to blog them, except the design team ones that need to be shown.

Anyway, I've been asked to take some new home cards with me and particularly with a cottage on, so for this card I used a cottage digital image from Cuddly Buddly, coloured with spectrum noirs.

I based the card on the sketch for The sweet stop 234:


I used an offcut of gingham paper that had come with a magazine, tearing the bottom. The image was mounted on to an offcut of red card. The card blank is embossed. Sorry the photo is crooked, but it was taken in a hurry.

CHNC challenge extra for November


Can you believe that it's now November?! It's scary how quickly yet another year has been going - it's true that as you get older, time seems to go more and more quickly.

It's time for CHNC challenge extra for November and this is my card using 'reindeer leap' kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps, who are always our generous sponsors. There is a prize of $21 of digital images for the randomly chosen winner at the end of the month. You can join in with anything, as long as it is Christmas.

I coloured the image digitally in Paint and matted it on to an offcut of red mirror card, adding a 3D sticker in the corner. The card blank was ready printed with the repeat patterns of Santa's sleigh and reindeer. With the addition of some of my favourite spotted grosgrain ribbon and red and gold foiled sentiment and the card was finished.
