Christmas in August

Evening peeps, hope you are all enjoying your weekend what ever one are up to.  Just a quick post tonight as I am off out in a wee while to a friend's house for cheeky drinks and a good old chin-wag.  This is another Christmas card to add to the pile, it is not growing as much as I had hoped, but every little helps as they say.

The card is made up of all different odds and bobs.  Die cut bear brought from ebay a number of years ago.  Stamped sentiment from a buzzcraft clear stamp set.  White poinsettias and holly leaves from Wild Orchid crafts (a new purchase I treated myself to last week - but shhh! don't tell Barry...hehe)  Card candys and ribbon from stash. Tools used were Square scalloped Nestibilities and a Christmas embossing folder.  The challenges entered today are:-
Hope you all have a lovely evening and hopefully see you tomorrow - sore head permitting

Laptop all better now ....

Evening peeps, sorry not been on and visiting everyone but I had a poorly laptop, the power supply broke, but now with a new cable delivered (and much cheaper than my local  PC World has wanting) I am back in business - whoop whoop!!!

Now, I got my Book-o-trix board quite a few years ago now after alot but after one very feeble attempt it kinda got placed, or may have been thrown, to the back of the craft cupboard and forgotten about until this weekend.  After a lot of rummaging, box moving and a few expletives I managed to find it - on the window sill - blew the cobwebs off it and deceided to set myself my own challenge to actually use it!

The bottle and wine glass are clear stamps from Woodware coloured with some felt-tip pens (I'm afraid I don't own promakers or copics). Ribbon and peel offs are from stash.  Other tools used were Oval Nesties and Swiss dots embossing folder.  The challenges covered this evening are:-
