I was going through some old Christmas cards and some of them are too nice to throw out! I loved this teddy image so used a Nestie die to cut him off the old card! I then noticed the sketch on the current Sketch and Stash Challenge uses a circle so have made this card for that. My neglected stash used is the blue card base, I bought a pack of these coloured cards ages ago and don't use them! Also new is the silver frosted card I used for the snowflakes (cut with a QK die), and the message is from a new Penny Black set of stamps. The backing paper is DCWV.

I need a variety of Christmas cards, some quick ones and some more detailed. I noticed on Christmas Cards All Year Round blog their challenge this month is to make 5 cards - no theme or colour specified. As I have been making some this morning I decided to enter these ones! 3 are stamped and 2 are using stickers.

The list of ingredients we have to use this time on Ready Steady STAMP Challenge 6 is - Pink, white and grey, the letter B, a mask on the background, brackets and corrugated cardstock. I think I have got them all on this fat book page I made, using a Penny Black bird stamp, a Tim Holtz mask, some spritzing with a Silver Glimmer Mist, dots with Liquid Pearls and my Slice for the little brackets!

The theme this week on Gothic Arches it Bows to use either bows or an image with a bow on. I used a Queen's Dresser Drawers stamp which I paper pieced with K & Co Hannah paper and used it also for the background.

The new challenge on My Time To Craft is Autumn Fest - to make anything to do with Autumn. I made a Gothic Arch using an image from a Joanna Sheen CD and backing papers and embellishments, edging with a Copper Krylon pen.

I found another challenge blog I hadn't seen before while hopping yesterday - DragonsDream Tag It On - and as I love making tags I had to have a go. The current challenge is - Text it to me - Make it Purple! So I used Dusty Concord and Milled Lavender Distress Inks, a purple Glimmer Mist which doesn't show up too well on the photo and an assortment of stamps and embellishments to make my tag!

While blog hopping I came across a challenge blog I hadn't seen before - Something Completely Different. The current challenge is to make a moo with some metal on. I love making moos and haven't made any for a while, so I inked mine with Broken China Distress Ink, stamped some butterflies and a border, added some words and a metal butterfly charm and some ric rac.

I made this card for 2 challenges, Sketch and Stash (my old stash was the base card which I have had for years! and the stamp is an old one too) and Papertake Weekly Challenge which this week is 'Faking It' - I did faux stitching on my card. The papers are from Funky Fairys Cherish collection.
We have reached X on Linda's Alphabet Challenge Blog and I couldn't come up with anything British for my nature themed atcs, so I made an X and used a selection of my lovely little Tapestry Stamps instead!

This card is for 2 challenges - Papertake Weekly where there is a sketch to follow, and the Anything Goes Challenge on Craft Swap Forum, which this month is Christmas. I used a Pink Gem Designs stamp, but I had to add a mouth I am afraid! and coloured it in with Copics and Promarkers. The papers are DCWV.

The theme on My Time to Craft, which will run for 2 weeks due to holidays, is Polka Dot Party. I used some dotty background papers which were free from a cardmaking magazine, and a stamp and message, with some punched paper flowers with dots in the middles made with Stickles!

It was our granddaughter's birthday in June and these are some of the photos I took of her opening her pressies! We also bought her a car seat which is why there is a photo of her sitting in it!! The papers are DCWV and the Happy Birthday is cut with a Cuttlekids alphabet. The first LO is also the one I have used when I set the September Scrapbook Challenge on Craft Swap Forum.

The theme on My Time To Craft this week is On The Farm and I have used my Penny Black cow stamp for this one together with some Funky Fairys Hope backing paper and a Card Candy sentiment.
