CHNC challenge 211: inspired by a Christmas carol or song


For my CHNC challenge 211 I made two cards using three lovely ship silhouette digial images - Ship I, II and III by Floppy Latte Designs kindly supplied by one of the sponsors, StitchyBear's DIgi Outlet and the lovely 'the waves' digital paper kindly supplied by one of the other sponsors, Buckwell Craft Supplies. The first card was created totally digitally; the second card used the images put together to make a topper to mat on to some 'I saw three ships ...' paper that I've had for years. Of course, the song I chose is obvious!

Please click on my CHNC challenge 211 link to see the generous prizes that will be given to four randomly chosen winners. I am delighted that one of the sponsors is joining my as a guest designer, so you will be able to see her lovely card too.

Here are mine (I'm also linking these for the Stitchy Bear fb January challenge):

Suzy is sponsoring the challenge and kindly supplied the Dazzling Ace Designs vintage Christmas image that I used. The paper at the base of the card is an offcut of Arctic frog paper and the other pieces, including the large snowflake cut on my Scan n cut, are snippets of DCWV papers left over from previous crafting.

Completely Christmas challenge 45


This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 45: anything goes with a twist ... add some Christmas foliage. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love it if you join in the challenge.

Papers are offcuts from my Christmas box (Hunkydory), the bottom black and white piece is some adhesive foil from Hema (well, it's supposed to be adhesive backed, but I had to run it through my Xyron to stick it - quite disappointing, as I have a pack of it). Above that, a strip of washi tape.

And the image is one kindly supplied by Suzy from her Dazszling Ace Designs - she is sponsoring the challenge.
