Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 5: anything goes


It's time for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 5: anything goes - where did the past week disappear to?! This is being sponsored by Eureka Stamps and I have used their 'heart tree' image that they kindly supplied, colouring the hearts with a spectrum noir pen. Please click on the challenge link to see what the rest of the team have created - and I hope you will be able to join in - it's an easy one this week, with 'anything goes'.

I decided to keep to a black and white theme with a touch of red. Papers are My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally with a strip of Tim Holtz tissue tape and a piece of Hobbycraft ribbon. The sentiment is Craftime.

CHNC challenge 153: light it up


It's almost December, so, if you haven't made those Christmas cards yet, it really is time to get serious ... and perhaps my CHNC challenge 153 will help you - please click on the link and join in ... and, as usual, there are some great prizes to be won.

For my card I used the lamppost digital image supplied by one of the sponsors, Cedar Chest Designs, stamping alongside with 'caroling penguins' by Penny Black, colouring with copics. This was then mounted on to a piece of red mirror card with just the addition of a Craftwork cards sentiment, all matted on a gold card blank.

Colours inspired by The shabby tea room 194: Christmas is coming:


52 Christmas card throwdown: pick a previous theme challenge - I've chosen - Christmas carol: We wish you a merry Christmas ...
