On the wings of love

'On the wings of love' is the topic for Mixed Media Monday this week - so these angel wings are appropriate. There's also foliage on this picture, which fits My time to craft 69: 'Christmas foliage'.

And One powerful hour has 'wishes' as the theme this time and Cafe mojo's challenge this week is 'wishes for the holidays!!'

Joy to the world

Another simple card, with Dovecraft paper ackground and a manger scene image.

This is good for:

Cupcake 69: 'sing a Christmas carol' - Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
All that scraps: ' anything Christmas

Bright pink snowflakes

I've had these pieces of bright pink card since last year, not quite knowing what cards to make with them - the big snowflake pattern continues round to the back of the card (forgot to take a photo of the back and the cards are now in the post).

The Dovecraft sentiments are in the form of a shaker with silvery glitter. You can see the shaker element more clearly on the first card than the econd. The snowflakes are foiled and glittered and really stand out irl - in fact the whole card is very bright pink.

I can't remember where I got the little trees from (I think they were with a magazine) - they seemed just right for these cards. They were very simple and quick to make.

They fit these challenges:

Pile it on 27: 'tinsel town' - glitter
Creatalicious 4 'make something for Christmas - include snowflakes and lots of sparkle/glitter'
Incy wincy 21: 'snowflakes'
Kaboodle 19 'snowflakes'
Lots to do 49: 'snow'
Tuesday taggers: 'oh Christmas tree'
All that scraps: ' anything Christmas'
PaperPlay 44: 'Christmas without red or green'
Cupcake 69: 'sing a Christmas carol' - Oh Christmas tree (not really a carol, but it is a Christmas song)
Saturday surprise: 'winter wonderland'
Crafty calendar 3: 'winter with option of sparkle and bling'
Diva coffee break 156: colour challenge: melon mambo (pink), whisper white, basic gray, Bermuda bay (there is a little of this blue on the trees and on the sentiment on the first card
Stamp, scrap and doodle 18: 'colour inspiration' (a picture is given)
Gingham girl's WOW 15: 'fulgent - dazzlingly bright'
