CHNC challenge 188: wish upon a star


Today's CHNC challenge 188 is all about stars - 'wish upon a star' - please visit and see what it's all about and join in the challenge - as usual, there are some lovely prizes to be won for the randomly chosen winners.

For my card I've used card and elements from Hunkydory's 'A child is born' which is part of their 'The road to Bethlehem' card collection that I bought recently. I love the whole kit because it is what Christmas is really about. The photo isn't good - I didn't make the card till last evening, so I had to rely on flash - and it's dull and raining now so no chance of getting a better picture.

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 40


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 40, which is once again 'anything goes'. Please click the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team - and please join in the challenge, which is being sponsored by Sparkle n Sprinkle who kindly supplied the 'sewing machine' and 'dress form with flowers' digital images that I used for my card. I coloured with spectrum noir pens. I decided to keep this card simple with just the one layer, adding some faux stitching around the edges and some felt buttons from Poundland and some gold prima spacers.

Completely Christmas 23: anything goes


This is my design card for this week's Completely Christmas 23 'anything goes' challenge - please click the link to see the lovely crafting of the team and please join in the fun with your entries.

I've used Stitchy Bear 'Baby it's cold outside' digital paper and 'Hope Jacre Doodle 3 Christmas trees' (Stitchy Bear is our sponsor) for my card, assembling them digitally with a sentiment added and then printing and colouring with spectrum noir, adding glue and polar white flower soft and lots of small red gems dotted around. The composition was then mounted on to a dark green card blank.
