Dress inspiration for celebration

This is for Sketch and Stash 23:

The neglected stash was the piece of striped paper on the left - this is a piece from BG obscure (not quite sure why I bought that because it's use seems limited). The piece of scalloped BG paper is from Indian summer, a more recent acquisition.

The colours of pink, orange and green were chosen for My Grafico 25 - at first those colours don't seem to go together, but given the right papers they work.

Tuesday challenge this week is quite unusual - we were asked to go to this link and pick one of the fabulous girls dresses as an inspiration piece. I chose this girl's dress, which reminded me of one that had been taken from a card someone gave me to recycle:

It's also for:

another one for week 8 'glitz and blink' on BG
Susie's sassy's challenge 2: pink and sparkly'
Mixed Media Monday: 'I am woman'
Kaboodle 18 asks us to use 'buttons, bows and bling' - I hope I'll be forgiven that there's only one button on the bow of the dress, but there is plenty of bling!
day 159 on 365 cards was: 'setting the scene indoors' - the chandelier seems right for this.
Sweet stampin' 1: 'celebrate' (why not check this out - new challenge blog started today)

Santa Claus is coming to town

This is for CPS 142:

And another one for Tuesday taggers for this week's theme: colours 'red, green and gold'

Another song - 'Santa Claus is coming to town' for Allsorts 28 and Ildi Co 5.

The background paper is Brenda Pinnick. I made the tag last Christmas (or it might even have been the Christmas before!) - at last I've found a use for it! This is right for Artful Inkables think ink Tuesday: 'make a tag'.

A cutie snowman

For this card I've used the sketch for Cutie Sunday 68:

I've also followed the recipe for the Crafty Pad 46: '1 circle, 2 ribbons, 3 papers, 4 gems and some sparkle'

The papers are BG figgy pudding, the turquoise and red ribbons are Dovecraft (I think), the turquoise heart gems are from Poundland and the snowman in a circle was part of a QVC kit.

Allsorts 28 today is 'Christmas carol or a song title ..', so this is 'Frosty the snowman', which also links for another card to Ildi Co 5 for their 'choose any Christmas song and let it inspire you' (I think I'm on a roll with these Christmas songs!)

There are snowflakes on the paper and on the picture, so it's good for today's One stop craft 56: 'snowflakes'.

And, as I've used some of my fav BG papers and there's glitz and bling on here, I'm also linking for Basic Grey week 8.
