CHNC challenge 227


It's Saturday again and time for CHNC challenge 227: girly - and this week I'd like you to make a girly Christmas creation - either featuring a female or suitable for a female to receive.

For my card I've used a girly image resulting in a card that I think would be fine to give to a female. I used the Indigo Blu Rebecca snow queen mounting on to an offcut of red mirror card. The card blank is a black A5 size opening landscape, so I cut off a piece on the right so that I could put a patterned paper inside that would show (an unknown paper from my stack of Christmas papers). The paper used on the outside of the card is My Mind's Eye Bohemia Christmas 'believe' stripe paper.

Suzy See's Bloomin' challenge 78


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 78: anything goes with a twist ... no patterned paper. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used Sassy Studio Design's Little Honey's tinkerbell image (Sassy Studio Designs are the sponsors of the challenge) - this was digitally coloured and mounted on to a small offcut of mirror card. The large background is a piece of Curious Particles midnight star card embossed using the hessian embossing folder (one of the Crafter's Companion textures range) and the smaller embossed card was created with an embossalicious folder, both run through the eBosser. The flower was from Hobbycraft and ribbon and sentiment from stash.

Not a good photo, but I'd left the card till the last day and wanted to take the photo while the light was reasonable.

Completely Christmas challenge 61


This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 61: anything goes with a twist ... add some holly. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

This is a very simple card, using a lovely Dazzling Ace Designs picture which was added to a background, blending in by fading the edges. I removed the greeting from the right hand bottom corner because too much of it faded into the background.
