CHNC challenge 226: 20 minutes or less


For my CHNC challlenge 226 that starts today I'm asking to see Christmas creations that were made within 20 minutes or less.

My card was made in about 17 minutes - that included choosing the Hunkydory pictures I wanted to use, cutting to size etc - part of the time was taken up trying to find my favourite scissors to fussy cut around the arched picture so that everything fitted together. This is an A5 card opening tent style.

I based my card on the sketch given for the current Jingle Belles challenge (always like to support as many other Christmas challenge blogs as I can):

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 77


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 77: anything goes with a twist ... use some lace. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used the Lacy Sunshine winter Emily image kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge. I coloured with Spectrum noir pencils (my first time of using these) and added Art Institute fine glitter to quickie glue pen on the 'fur'.

Papers are The English Paper Company 'airy fairy' (I've had for ages). The pink lace was bought from a local market stall a few months ago.

Completely Christmas challenge 60


This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 60: anything goes with a twist ... use some washi tape.

For my card I used a lovely Dazzling Ace Designs image, kindly supplied by the sponsor. The foiled panel across the middle (much more shiny irl) has been upcycled from the remains of a Christmas cracker and the reindeer washi tape  added top abd bottom. The felt holly and the poinsettia were from Hobbycraft.
