jolly Christmas


Good evening, it's the last day of the Holiday Chaos challenges over at Catch the Bug. I'm so pleased that I've managed to enter all 7 of them, really didn't think I'd have time to do it at the beginning of the week. Today it's a photo inspiration challenge...and they are even kind enough to provide a freebie to play along with if you want to use it. So here's my card, using the cute freebie!
Thaks for visiting
Happy weekend!

Brrrr...




I'm catching up!Here's my card for day 6 of Holiday Chaos challenge at Catch the Bug. I've learnt a lot this week, sometimes you just have to go for it and not over -think what you're doing! These  Bugaboo images are really quick and easy to colour which obviously helps a lot when time is an issue! This time I used Winter penguin trio... I haven't chopped this one up :))
Thanks for looking. Hopefully I'll be back later with the 7th and final card!

Santa...I've been naughty

Back again with my 5th card for the Catch the Bug holiday chaos challenges. This is for the 'Humour me' challenge. This time I've used one of my old favourites - JJ Christmas Cheers- she tends to come out every year, this girl sure knows how to party!!  JJ is coloured with copics and a gold sparkle pen...which doesn't show up but all the gold bits do sparkle! I've covered the glass and her specs with glossy accents. The sentiment is stamped.
Thanks for visiting and your lovely comments!
Have a great evening

A big red nose...


Hi, I'm still making my cards for the Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos Challenge. I'm not lagging quite so far behind now, so I might even complete the whole week of challenges!  I've two to share today so here's my entry for the bingo board challenge...plaid, Bugaboo image, ribbon.
I used another one of the  images from the Christmas Trio Blocks digi. This cutie is coloured with copics and a gold gel pen. Glossy accents on his eyes and red glitter on his nose. This card was super-quick to make!
I'll be back shortly with the next one!

Another late night post...


This is getting to be a habit! I'm trying to complete the holiday Chaos challenge over at Catch the Bug, which is proving to be real challenge for me! There's a new theme every day this week and I'm lagging behind! It's day 5 and this is only my 3rd card!!! I've two more half completed though so I might catch up! Anyway this is my entry for the sketch challenge. Once again I used just part of a digi -Christmas Trio Blocks- for me this is huge part of the charm of digi stamps, you can crop them and 'go large' making them so versatile and such excellent value...3 for the price of one! Thanks for looking, and good night!

All tied up at Fab N Funky


Good morning. there's a new challenge starting today at Fab N Funky, it's my turn to host so I picked the theme 'all tied up'...so anything you can tie...ribbon, bow, string etc...easy huh! Our lovely sponsor this time is Crafts and Me. I used a pretty image by Jeremiah Ketner, The great Bow, available here. I coloured her up with my copics. I printed her quite large so I kept my design simple just adding some die cut stars (love this die) a ribbon and some doodled stitches. Sentiment is stamped and embossed with white EP.  It would make me very happy if you play along this challenge...just click here to visit Fab N Funky challenge blog, and add your beautiful creation. You'll love the fabulous cards my lovely teamies have created this week so it's worth a visit even if you don't have time to play!
Thanks for visiting and have a great day.

Snowmen

Good evening, it's a very late post from me today, it's been one of those days where I rushed around but didn't get a lot done. I've been trying to finish wrapping presents and making/writing cards, trying so hard not to leave it all until the last minute! I needed some holders for money gifts for family and friends' children...made some quick little envelopes using an idea I saw on Pinterest (didn't pin it so sorry can't add a link), after I made a template they were very easy to make, looked a bit dull though  so I used this cute  little Bugaboo snowman to jolly them up. He's available here, I just used one of the snowmen from the block.
I kept this very simple, for speed but there are all kinds of ways you could decorate this! A gift card fits inside it too! 
Thanks for looking
Good night!
