Creative Craft Challenge. White on White Christmas card

Evening everyone.   Today we have a new challenge over at Creative Craft and I have to admit I struggled with our new theme. 

For this challenge we want to see your "White on White" projects.

I have to apologise for the photo, whatever direction or light I tried didn't seem to make any difference.

For my card not a stamp or copic in sight.  I think is the first time I have attempted an embossed card  (this was actually my third attempt at doing a card for this challenge the first two were utter disasters, well perhaps not that bad but I wasn't happy with them anyway.......)





This challenge will be running for three weeks instead of the usual fortnight because of a little thing called Christmas which gives everyone plenty of time to get creative.

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Cold and Frosty Christmas Card

Hello to all.  It's the first Saturday in December so we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar.  Hope everyone's Christmas preparations are well under away.  Luckily I break up from work for Christmas this coming Friday so I should have plenty of time to get all my jobs done.

Our theme for this month is another winter theme so we want to see
"Cold & Frosty" projects.

For my card I have used one of my old Magnolia images.  I felt it has a cold wintery feel to it.
Image - Magnolia Silent Night Tilda coloured with copics.

Creative Craft Challenge - Non Traditional Christmas Challenge

Hi all.  Is everyone well on the way to getting their Christmas organised?   I wish I was...., I've got to the stage where I can't sleep.  I'm up at 5.00am most mornings, and I think that I'll be able to get something done in the little bit of time before I leave for work at 7.30am and all that happens is that I end up making myself late for work.....

So to help everyone else get organised we have a Christmas challenge over at
Creative Craft and for this fortnight we want a Non Traditional Christmas project so time to avoid those red and green papers.

For my card I have used:
Lili of the Valley Penguin Presents coloured with copics.
DP's are from the DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas paper stack.

Crafty Calendar Halloween Challenge Card

Good evening everyone, It's the first Saturday in October so it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Calender.

October is the time for witches & spells so we're getting spooky with our "Halloween" theme for this month.

Considering I don't really celebrate Halloween, when I was looking through my stash for an image to use on my project this month I couldn't believe the amount of Halloween style rubber & digital stamps that I have.

I decided on a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, I love their spooky style images, the one I used isn't one of their Halloween stamps, she's from the range based on the Wizard of Oz but I though she was perfect for my card.

For my card I have used:
Kraftin' Kimmie Wicked Witch coloured with copics.
The DP's are from my stash.

Creative Craft Challenge Card - Not A Square

Good morning all.  Hope everyone is having a good day so far...today we have a new challenge today over at Creative Craft and for this fortnight the theme is
"Not A Square!"

You may have noticed but I rarely deviate from the 6" square card so this was quite a challenge for me...

I decided to get my hardly used Cricut cutter out for inspiration and I found an octagon shape on one of the cartridges that I quite liked the look of.   I managed to manipulate the shape in the Cricut Design Studio so that the top edges overlapped and it resembled some sort of card shape.

I have another Christmas theme card for this challenge, just because I love this little bear image from our sponsor for this challenge Pink Gem Designs.

For my card I have used:
The image is "Barclay with Bauble" from Pink Gem Designs coloured with copics.
The DP's are from the First Edition Festive Treats paper pack


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Christmas Card Challenge - Non Traditional Christmas
Glitter & Sparkle Challenge - Anything But A Square
The Hobby House - Christmas
Allsorts Challenge - Use Your New Stash (The image is new)
