Critter Sketch Challenge – #92

I’m here to share my card for this week’s Critter Sketch Challenge where the theme this week is:

DIGITAL DELIGHT WEEK

Easy peasy just use one of the fab images available from Digital Delights by Looby Loo. I’ve gone for this adorable little snowman again.

I’ve teamed the image with some gorgeous Forever Friends patterned papers and stuck to some very traditional Christmas Colours. I also tried a kick stand card and I really quite like it.

Please head over to Critter Sketch Challenge to see what the rest of the DT have made.

I’m off for a long soak in the bath now as I’m still suffering with a sinus infection and nasty headache. A soak in the bath in the middle of the afternoon I hear you shout but it’s a little perk of having a wee holiday at my parents while hubby is away on business.

Thanks for stopping by.

Less is More

Just a quick little post to share a card I’ve made for this weeks LIM challenge where Chrissie and Mandi what to see us use Silhouettes.

I really wanted to have a go at this as I wanted to try out making a snowy background using watercolour with salt salt dropped onto it but thought I was going to have to give it a miss when I couldn’t find a Silhouette stamp anywhere in my stash. Then I thought about one of my favourite Christmas stamps from Inkadinkado and wondered if I could cheat and colour it in so it looks like a Silhouette…..I think it works…do you?

I couldn’t get a decent photo of this card today ( this was the best of a bad bunch) so the background doesn’t really show, but IRL it looks very good, the salt soaks up some of the colour and when dry and brushed away it also leave a slight bumpy texture where the colour has pooled around it. I will definitely be using this again for more Christmas cards as it was quick and really easy to do.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

PCJ – Challenge 24

Cute Penguin Christmas Card (4)

I’m a little here to share my creation for this weeks Paper Crafting Journey challenge. I have had issues with my camera and not been able to upload my pictures. Well after uninstalling and reinstalling the camera software and also formatting the memory card it looks like the problem might be fixed. So back to the challenge and this week the theme is:

ANYTHING GOES

Cute Penguin Christmas Card (1)

Now if you’re cunning like me I used this an excuse to make another Christmas Card. I’ve used a super cute digi from Digital Delights by Looby Loo, coloured with ProMarkers. I’ve kept the rest of the card quite simple to showcase the super image, but I did drag out the gold mirror board which I haven't used in a long time….well since last Christmas at least!

Please hop over to Paper Crafting Journey and see what the rest of the DT have made.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bye for now.

Critter Sketch Challenge – #90

OMG, what a week. The few who read my blog will know I moved house last weekend. It’s said to be one of the most stressful things someone can do in their lifetime and I’m certainly not going to disagree. And to top it all off my little boy has been quite poorly, but thankfully is now on the mend.

We finally got internet access at home today, so I’m here to share my card for this week’s Critter Sketch Challenge.

This week Melanie has given us a sketch to follow

oct 31

My card this week uses all digital elements as everything else was packed in boxes. The image I’ve used is a fantastic new digi from this months sponsor Digital Delights and everything else is from Sarah Hurley’s fantastic new CD ‘Tinseltown’ which can be purchased here.
