CHNC challenge 200: if you want to get ahead get a hat!


The theme for CHNC challenge 200 this week is 'if you want to get ahead get a a hat!' - for more info please click the link and I hope you will join in with my challenge - if you haven't started on your Christmas cards, NOW is the time!

For my card I used Whoopsi Daisy's sheet 380 snowman (Whoopsi Daisy is one of this week's sponsors). The paper is from Cosy Christmas pad (free with Quick Cards a couple of years ago) - other items from supplies. Snowflakes were punched from snippets of silver mirror card.

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 52: anything goes with a twist ... wedding


This is my card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 52: anything goes with a twist ... wedding. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

My design card is CAS, using a pre-patterned DL card (one of my Hobbycraft bargains) The Anita's image stamp was inked with versamark and heat embossed with pirate gold embossing powder. The two sentiment stamps from Anna Griffin were likewise stamped and embossed. It's a pity that whatever I did to try and get a better photo, the embossing doesn't show up like it does in real life.

For my CAS card I used this background chopped down to make a square card with the Lacy Sunshine Christmas boo image added, having coloured it in Microsoft Paint - the challenge is being sponsored by Lacy Sunshine who kindly supplied the digi. I know that I've used this image on similar cards before, but I love it so much that I couldn't resist using it yet again.
