CCAYR August challenge reminder


This is my design card for Christmas cards all year round August challenge reminder - please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the Christmas Belles have made and please join in our challenge here using bright and summery colours, where you can also see what the Gingerbread Gals created.

For my card I used an image kindly supplied by The Stamping Boutique, - Christmas ornament fairy, a sponsor of the challenge. I coloured this with spectrum noir pens The background paper is an offcut of a K & Co paper from one of their 12 x 12 albums, wrapped with a piece of ribbon from stash.I die cut the image using a todo decorative squares die with a larger one for the gold mirri card.

CHNC challenge extra for August mid-month inspiration


It's time for some mid-month inspiration from some of the DT on my CHNC challenge extra blog - you can see the lovely designs here and please join in the challenge here.

For my card I've used one of my favourite Penny Black Christmas stamps called chill days, inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pens, with the fluffy parts of Santa's suit touched with a quickie glue pen and sprinkled with Art Institute glitter. Papers from a Cosy Christmas collection pad free with Quick Cards a couple of years ago and a piece of Hobbycraft ribbon for the sentiment.
