V for Very Vibrant

The new theme on the Alphabet Challenge Blog is V for Very Vibrant.  My card actually looks a lot more vibrant than this photo, I am finding it hard to find decent light to take photos lately!  I used some Dovecraft bp and a Unity flower stamp coloured with Promarkers.

MTTC Challenge #165 - Sun, Moon and Stars

The new theme on My Time To Craft this week is Sun, Moon and Stars - and we had to use one or a combination of those things.  For my DT work I made a LO of my granddaughter wearing her fleecy star top.  The alphas are American Crafts, and the swirly thing and stars are cut on my Cricut.  The starry bp is from a pack of Papermania I have had for ages.

Another month has gone by so it is time for a new theme on the monthly challenge blog, Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenges and this time it is Angels.  We are sponsored for this challenge by Lili of the Valley and you could win a £10 voucher if you have a go.
For my DT work I have altered another beermat (my collection is growing rapidly!) and used some papers by Dovecraft (I think, I am useless at remembering what I've used!)  for the background and image, adding some sparkle and a Tim Holtz Doodad to embellish.

MTTC Challenge #164 - Rainy Days

Time for a new theme on My Time To Craft, these weeks go by so quick, but from 22nd November we will be changing to a fortnightly challenge.  This week the challenge is Rainy Days.  For my DT work I used a Sugar Nellie image and some downloaded bps (no longer available) to make my card.  I coloured the Card Candi with Copics.  The corners are cut with a Cuttlebug die, and the leaves with a Leone Emm punch.
