CHNC challenge 59: angel

I wouldn't normally do this, but this is an early post for my CHNC challenge 59 for tomorrow - I can't give you a link yet because the blogpost isn't up until tomorrow morning, but will link then (so it gives you a head start to start thinking of what you might make to enter the challenge, which will be all about angels or fairies).

I didn't actually intend to blog this card till tomorrow, but I've used the sketch for Sweet Sunday 151 and have suddenly realised that the challenge closes tonight, hence the early blogging of this card because I wanted to acknowledge the use of the sketch:

My challenge CHNC 59 is being sponsored this week by Bugaboo stamps, so I've used one of their digital images called 'angel big star' to which I added my own sentiment and coloured with copics and promarkers. The papers are offcuts that were in my Christmas scraps box, so this is another for Pixie's crafty snippets 6. the brocade ribbon and Christmas greetings are from stash.

I'll be blogging another card in the morning for CHNC challenge 59 which will feature a different Bugaboo angel stamp.

A dog's life

This is a simple card for Just some lines 'a dog's life' challenge.

The background paper is some I bought ages ago from PDA card and craft and the holographic edged stickers were from Poundland. A couple of strips down the edges and the card was done.

Colours are for Color throwdown 178:

Suzie's 365 day 41: heart

Here is my photo for Suzie's day 41: heart:

The heart box is one that I bought years ago for John - it's only a cheapo plastic one - in which he keeps his 'treasures'. If you look closely you can see the back of the medallion that his second guide dog wore. Other treasures include his wedding ring that he can't wear any more because his knuckle has thickened up. I promised him a new wedding ring for Christmas, but we still haven't been to buy it - one day soon, hopefully. That will be the third wedding ring he's had from me (and I'm still on my first).

Oh, and the slipper socks are some that I bought yesterday when we picked up prescriptions from the chemist - just right for cold feet in the winter.
