CBC CCAD 6 + DCM 10 minute Christmas card + Lots to Do 38: Christmas

This is a quick card that qualifies for this week's DCM challenge to make a Christmas card in ten minutes - and, as it's a Christmas card, it also qualifies for this week's Lots to do.

The main reason though why I made this card was for CCAD 6 on CBC: 'I NEED A CARD and it MUST be a CHRISTMAS CARD and must include PINK and TURQUOISE.'

I used a Brenda Pinnick base card and just added adhesive backed glittered chipboard letters and shapes.


The Christmas-challenge-a-day has been continuing this month on CBC. So far I've only done the challenges for days 1 - 4, but now I've managed CCAD 5 - make 4 tags - I needed some more, so this is just right. I used some of the Papermania strips and mounted them on some Branda Pinnick papers and added one or two other bits:

Rosie Dee's challenge 13 mini book

On Rosie-Dee's Challenge blog last Sunday, Dee asked a question and said there would be a blank beer-mat mini book for the first two to get the answer right. Gez and I won one and yesterday I received not only the mini book, but also ribbons, flowers and buttons:

So this is the challenge this week: 'This week I would like you to make a christmas themed mini book, no need to add photos just yet, its just getting one prepared for after the festive period, then all you have to do is add photos.'

I've used the mini book, ribbons, flowers and buttons sent to me by Rosie and Dee and a few bits and pieces that are in my Christmas box, including various background papers.

Thank you, girls, for a lovely prize and a great challenge.

(and I've just got it done in time to watch Strictly!)

At last!!!

At last I've done some crafting - finally done my DLO in Net's lovely CJ: 'When I was a little girl' for the group on CBC.

Net has asked for us to include a photo and ribbons and flowers, so this is what I've done (the swirly background paper is some I've had from ages - not sure what it is - the plain green is DCWV textured):

I'm so glad I've got that done - sorry to the rest of the group for being late.

BF Advent 11, 12, 13

Gosh, a couple of days have gone by in a flash. Here are the advent pressies I received from 11, 12 and 13 (today):

Nothing crafty to show yet - nothing done since Monday. The past few days have been taken up with writing cards, wrapping, preparing packages and posting etc etc - and a visit to St Thomas for an appointment for John yesterday and not feeling too brilliant.

Hoping that I'll be doing some crafting later today - I need to do my DLO in a CJ for CBC which should have been done and posted - I'm usually not late, but time defeated me with this one.

And no HS:MS:HS from me now for a while - it's not that I don't want to take part, but essentials have to be done.
