Dutch Dare - so Charming

Morning peeps, just a quick post before nipping off to work as I forgot to pop this on last night. I was so tired I crawled upstairs to my bed and konked out straight away and I must have been snoring away as I have woken up with a sore throat! plus the pussycats had their ear plugs in!.
I needed a break from Chrimbo cards and did this wedding card for Dutch Dare. Their challenge was "So Charming" . I used one of my Whiff of Joy stamps, backing papers are from K & Co, and charm from stash.
Have a lovely day and look forward to catching up in all the gossip later on.

Morning everyone. I do hope you all had a lovely weekend. Fortunately I am off work today so I get to play. I have started today with Rainbow Lady's - "Christmas with the stars" and Secret Crafter's - "Animal Antics".
It is certainly moved into Autumn now, the trees outside our house are changing and dropping off and I have been in kinks of laughter as dopey Jazz chases madly after He cracks me up.

Papertake Weekly & One Stop

Morning all. This is a card I made last night while watching Strictly Come Dancing. Don't know my favourite is a the moment, but I think Phil "Tuffers" is up there, just because he is a cheeky chappie and Natalie Cassidy is she is loving it (and she is dancing with Vincent). Can't wait until February 'cos I have tickets for the tour coming to Glasgow.
The I really like the sketch over at Papertake Weekly, not to tricky for me. The challenge over at One Stop Craft is "Die Cut". I used a Gorjuss Girl image from Sugar Nellie and Stickled the wings and her pendant. Backing papers is from a Forever Friends paper stack. Used the snowflake Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and distressing it with blue chalk ink. Found the sequin waste in my stash.

Winter Wonderland & Allsorts Challenges

Evening everyone. I can't believe I have not been on for over a week - Bad Kaza - slaps wrist. The week has just flown by and nothing to show for it (apart from a pile of ironing - and that can wait! So I am going to have a craft-a-thon with myself tonight & all day tomorrow to try and play catch up.
The challenge over at Winter Wonderland is "Vintage" and at Allsorts is it "Snowflakes in September" so I did this little number to cover both.

The image is from papers from stash that I "Nestied", backing paper is from a Laura Ashley range and the diecut letters from a kit from Create & Craft (which the lovely Lesley had given me as a prestie).
Will catch up everyone soon as I have been peeking at everyone but not leaving a calling card.

Anyone for Anya & Crafty Cardmakers

Hello again, another Christmas card as I am trying to do a stock pile so I can sell on behalf of The Brionni Trust. I have used the challenges from Anyone for Anya which is "Buttons, Bows & Brads" and a brilliant sketch over at Crafty Cardmakers.
I used Winter Miss Anya stamp, diecut snowflakes, brads and shaker sentiment from Dovecraft and backing paper is from DCVW.

Winter Wonderland

Ahoy me hearties!!!! I am back from my hollibags and I have serious crafting withdrawals. I have missed you all terribly and will catch with everyone soon, also will pop a few holiday snaps on (when I find the camera as still to unpack!)
Over at Winter Wonderland there is a fantastic sketch to follow with the theme of "Frosty the Snowman" and the Design Team examples, so pop across to check them all out!.

I used the fabby Edwin snowman, I didn't have any swirly things as per sketch so I popped on the "Brrr" cut from my sizzix alphabet. Backing papers I think are Papermania, brads from stash and sentiment is printed off computer.
Heading back to my table with gusto!!!!!
