The new challenge on My Time To Craft is called Easy Elegance. I inked a blank card with Tea Dye Distress Ink and stamped a Crafty Individuals Flourish stamp using Adirondack Butterscotch ink around the edges. I then stamped a beautiful lady stamp by LB Crafts with the Butterscotch, and used the Tea Dye to edge the piece of card and rub over around the lady. I finished the card with some ribbon and pearly flower embellishments.

The theme on My Time To Craft is Contemporary Christmas and I have made a lilac card with a curly Christmas tree stamp that I hope fits the bill! It is an Anita's stamp and I don't know the make of papers, and I printed the greeting on the pc.

I missed out day 4 for now and have made my take on day 5, although I am still waiting for my grungeboard to arrive so have had to improvise with other things! Link to Tim's blog on the right hand side somewhere!

I am panicking now as time is getting short for finishing my Christmas cards, so have gone into production line mode and I am making several at once! I used my House Mouse Ho! Ho! Ho! stamp for these (another lot are under way too!)

I needed one more Moo so got my tapestry stamps out to make this one and stamped with Distress Inks and added Stickles to the holly berries - I wish I had more time to play with them as I love them!

We had a sketch to follow this week on My Time To Craft and here is my interpretation of it.
I stamped an image using an Elusive Images stamp and used Dovecraft papers for the backgrounds, finishing with a message, a Prima and brads.

The challenge on Penny Black Saturday is Funky Christmas - so I made my card in lilacs and pinks. I stamped my favourite snowman stamp, Skating Snowy and watercoloured and glitter glued him, then matted him onto some lilac paper and some Cuttblebug embossed snowflake card, and added a message and some QK snowflakes to finish.

The new challenge is a sketch to follow, or use pink and blue, or combine the two on Funky Fairys new forum here! I made a LO using FF Blue Christmas and Funky Meets Shabby Chic papers and a photo of Louise sleeping on her first Christmas Day when we were waiting to open her pressies!

I don't usually do this, but I have made a card for 2 challenges as time is short!! House Mouse & Friends have the theme I'ts Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, and Papertake Weekly have Let it Snow. I used my Gruffy stamp of the bear in the snow on his sled and got a bit carried away with my snowflakes round the edges!

The new challenge on My Time To Craft is It's Raining It's Pouring! I used my Maggie Sugar Nellie stamp and watercoloured her in with Marvy Le Plumes, and used Funky Fairy Doodlementals papers together with a Cuddly Buddly message and some Primas, and finally some glitter glue for the rain drops!

The new Funky Fairy Challenge is now up on the new forum - there is either a sketch to follow or a Christmas theme using buttons and ribbons. I followed the sketch and did a LO of my dribbly granddaughter, using Hope and Pink papers from the Funky Fairys downloads.
The current Penny Black Saturday challenge is Monochrome. I decided to go with Black and White, and stamped my PB sentiment stamp which I am using a lot this year! and matted it onto black card, then some snowflake embossed card and DCWV black and white papers. I diecut a holly sprig out of paper I had black glitter embossed and used black Stickles for the berries!
