Creative Craft Challenge - Gorjuss Christmas Card

This fortnights challenge over at Creative Craft is "Anything Goes".  And surprise, surprise I've made a Christmas card and this is definitely my last one for this year.   It's been ages since I've used any of my Gorjuss Girls so I decided to bring one out of retirement and have used  the gorjuss "Foxy" coloured with copics.


The DP's are from the Forever Friends paper pack "Cosy Christmas"


Thanks for looking & Happy Christmas x

Sketch and Stash Challenge 51 - 2 Year Blogaversay Celebration

Time for another challenge over at Sketch and Stash.  Time is going by so fast I've just realised that it's only 5 more sleeps to Christmas!!!!. 

We have a celebration for this challenge because it's our 2 year blogaversary - and we have LOADS of prizes on offer.

For this fortnights challenge all you need to do is make a card using one of our last 50 sketches ... for my card I've used Sketch 8 and my new stash that I've used is the gorgeous "Reindeer Tilda" coloured with copics.  I had a little trouble with the hair - I was making this card for my Grandma and I wanted Tilda to have reddish hair (just like her Granddaughter) but I always have trouble colouring red hair and I'm not sure it tuned out right!!!!.
The DP's are from the paper packs Dovecraft "Jolly Happy Christmas" and Papermania "Wonderful Christmas"

Creative Craft Recipe Challenge - 1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 brads

Time for another challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges and this one is a recipe challenge.  We need to see 1 ribbon, 2 papers and 3 brads.

I've never done a recipe challlenge before so for my card I have used the LOTV stamp "James Bear - Pile of presents" coloured with copics and koh-i-noor pencils.  The DP's are from my stash.  You can't really tell from this picture because the papers look white but they are actually a bluey green colour and I think they come from one of the Papermania packs.

We're sponsored this week by The Crafty Pad and there is a gorgeous image up for grabs for one lucky winner.

Sketch & Stash Challenge - Magnolia Snowy Hug Tilda

There's a gorgeous sketch to follow for the challenge over at Sketch & Stash this fortnight.

Also on a different note - apologies that I've been away from blogland for a bit and I might be for a couple of weeks more - My OH is a little bit poorly at the moment and is off into hospital this week so my card making may be a slightly sporadic because after working a full day,  I will then have to travel quite a distance to visit him in hospital - hopefully normal service will return soon

Starlight Starbright - Creative Craft Challenge

Time for another challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges and this fortnight the theme is "Starlight Star bright", so we need to see lots of stars on your projects for this challenge.

For my card I have used the gorgeous Lili of the Valley image "Teddy with star" coloured with copics,  It doesn't show on this photo very well but my teddy has been eating his Ready Brek (or any other oat based breakfast cereal) and has a slight orange glow around him which I did using Koh-i-noor pencils and blending them out with sansador.  The DP's are from the Dovecraft paper pack "Christmas Fancy".

It doesn't happen very often but I got my sewing machine out for this card (if you don't look too closely you might even miss the wonky stitches!!)

Creative Craft Challenge - Glamour Puss

This is my DT card for this fortnights challenge over at Creative Craft challenges and the theme is "Glamour Puss"

I know I'm a couple of days late but every night this week I've been busy cutting out teddy bear shapes in fun fur for my Brownie meeting tonight and I can't believe the mess I've made of the spare/craft room - They decided they wanted do do their Toymakers badge and just had to make teddy bears, I'm going to be finding bits of fur for weeks.

For my card I've use the Pink cat Studio image "Kitty Fashionista " and I think she looks glamorous.


We are sponsored by "Little Claire" for this challenge and these gorgeous stamps (Can't make tea... and Lilies" are on offer to the winner.


Don't forget we have a DT call open until the 10th October.
