Festive Friday Challenge #18

Hi everyone!

I am a little late today posting this. My week has been quite busy and I hope to get back on top of it before Mother’s Day on Sunday so I can sit back and relax! LOL!

Todays Festive Friday Challenge hosted by the lovely Nicole Derendorf is a colour challenge

I love this combo for Christmas cards, it has a lovely country feel to it.

I have used the Framelits die yet again, but this time I used the negative as an accent. You can also see I have used the gold Shimmer Mist over the card to Christmas it up a bit. Stamp set used is my favourite Christmas set, Winter Post and the sentiment is a part colouring of a stamp out of Tags til Christmas. I also used my favourite background for Christmas cards, Woodgrain.

Come along and have a play with the challenge and don’t forget to link your creation at Nicole’s blog

Inkspirations Colour Challenge #34

Hey everyone!

Well, when you think about it, Christmas is not too far away! It makes me wonder where has this year gone???! I remember as a child that time just seemed to stand still. I think when you are a kid you are always in such a hurry trying to experience all sorts of things and sometimes that also meant growing up. But now, when you have your own kids, you want things to slow down so you can enjoy those precious gems a little longer…….I think I have gone way off track here but I think what I am trying to say is if I don’t start my Christmas cards now, it will be too late and they will not get done and I might have to…….some people might want to close their eyes at this point as I am about to swear!!!…….BUY Christmas cards to post! LOL!

Anyway here is this weeks colour combo

We have also the added challenge from Sarah-Jane this month to make a card with buttons. I love buttons so that was easy! Also Sarah-Jane is hosting this week so make your way to Sarah’s blog to submit your Inspiration.

Sweet Sunday Sketch #77

Hey everyone!

I’m back again! Can you believe it?? LOL! As it turned out the next challenge didn’t take all day so I am able to post this one today!

I decided to play with Karen’s Sweet Sunday Sketch (for the first time, mind you).

Bit cute isn’t it?! It took me about 10 minutes to choose which stamp set to use. I wanted to go girly cute but my fingers kept reaching for Winter Post. So let’s call this one “Christmas in July”

I love this set! I clear embossed the skaters with Sahara Sand Ink and then used my blender pens to colour them. I am also loving this colour combo. I used it a lot for last years Chrissy Cards.

Well I want to go forth and create more so while the goings good I best be going.
