BF Advent 8

This is the lovely little package I had today:

Crafty Creations 29: holiday wishes

Three quick cards for the 'holiday wishes' challenge on Crafty Creations, using images I got in the concept card package I bought from QVC:

Ooh-la-la Creations 25: shaker cards/movement

This is a bit of a cheat in more ways than one. I made this card the other day (put it on here) and then yesterday I thought what a lovely card it would make for one of our granddaughters - she has a birthday later this week. So I printed bits on some BG paper and inked the edges and added to the card:

The challenge on Ooh-la-la this week is to make a shaker card or one with movement - well, this card definitely has shakers on it, but they were ready-made ones, so I'm cheating really, but at this time of year with all the busy-ness of Christmas and so many family birthdays to make for, I think a bit of cheating must be allowed! - in fact, I reckon it's using initiative to save some time!

Arty Girlz Recycled challenge

While looking on Arty Girlz to see what this week's challenge is (haven't done it yet) I noticed that there is an ongoing recycling challenge, so this card is for that. The picture of the candles was from an old card - too good to just throw in the recycling box - and the background paper was one free with a magazine:

A spoonful of sugar challenge 28: thank you card

A quick thank you card for the challenge on A spoonful of sugar (I've shown some like this before - using a template from UKS with my robo):
