CHNC challenge 231: colour it


For my CHNC challenge 231 I'm simply asking for you to 'colour it' ... any way you like.

For my card I used a digital image kindly given by Cute as a Button, one of this week's sponsors, called 'big eyed digital penguin' coloured with spectrum noir pens . All of the papers used are snippets from old DCWV papers.

New home card


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 82: anything goes with a twist ... bright and colourful. Please click on the link to see the other lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used Deedee's Digis Little birdie, kindly supplied by the challenge sponsor.

I needed to send a new home card recently and this lovely image seemed appropriate, matted on to gold mirror card and on to a wood background from Kanban with a 'Happy new home' sentiment from Kanban.

Completely Christmas challenge 65


This is my design card for Completely Christmas 65: anything goes with a twist ... make it square. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team. This is a sad day for Completely Christmas because it is our last challenge.

If this challenge blog has helped you to make your Christmas cards earlier in the year to avoid panic towards the end of the year, there are quite a few other challenge blogs devoted to making Christmas creations, including my own weekly Craftyhazelnut Christmas challenge - this week the theme for CHNC challenge 231 is 'colour it'. I also run the monthly Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge extra where it is always 'anything goes' as long as it's Christmas. There are always lovely prizes to be won on both of these blogs.

Back to Completely Christmas challenge 65 - for my card I used a lovely shiny dufex picture of three ships (upcycled from a card received) matted on to an offcut piece of text paper with the words of the Christmas song, which was then mounted on to another Christmas script paper. It is a shame that the photo doesn't do justice to the lovely picture.
