Shy Hilda

Hi there here is my third calendar this is using Shy Hilda, the papers are from one of my Christmas packs, you'd never tell would you. This one is for my next door neighbour.
I've used the sketch from The Pink Elephant they gave us a choice of two, I might pop back and use the other sketch aswell , I shall also enter it into Creative Card Crew's challenge they say anything goes, I shall have to run now as I'm watching the second installment of Triffids in a bit.

Hi all, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is looking forward to the New Year, I decided to make a few calendars instead of New Year cards, that way they last a bit longer.
This one is for the Sketch and Stash challenge who provided us with a lovely sketch, I've changed it a tad and taken the two flowers of the sides, didn't think this card needed anything else.
My gorgeous son and DIL brought me Dexter for Christmas, I've wanted some Motivet stamps for ages they also got me Shy Hilda she's facing the ink tomorrow for another calendar.
Hope to be back tomorrow.

Hiya, hope your all nearly ready, I'm no where near yet, but I finish work tomorrow so its all systems go. I brought 5 off these little calendar books thinking that I could make some calendars as stocking fillas, well I've only managed time to make 1 so I guess my Mum will get it, I might have a bit of time between christmas and new year so they will have to be new year pressies :0)

ICS no 47

Hiya, well this is the last sketch for this year, how the time flies.

Here is Dawns amazing sketch number 47, remember you can do what you like with the sketch as long as its still visable, and you have fun.

One of our DT's Wendi is very kindly donating some gorgeous blog candy this week as the prize.

Here is my card, afraid the colours haven't come out too well (night photography) but hey after next week the days start to get longer again grrrrrreat,
Aswell as using Dawns sketch from ICS I have used the colour scheme from Stampin for the weekend that wanted us to use blue and brown Stamp something asked for a winter wonderland, Just Magnolia wanted a Christmas card, Creative inspirations said no red or green and Simon Says said let it snow.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with last weeks cards were amazing.

This one is a bit out of my comfort zone , I had it planned in my head how it would look, and it was nothing like this:0) I used a chipboard tree inked with shabby shutters and then stamped on top with a impression obsession stamp in the shabby shutters again, i wrapped it with a paper ribbon, used my minds eye paper and glitter card for the bottom, finshing of with a hotp big brad.
I'm putting this card into 3 challenges

Hi, this card is for two challenges, I used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious and they also wanted you to use vellum so I tore a strip for the sentiment to go on. My Time to craft asked for Christmas Foliage so even though holly berries are not pink in real life I thought they would still count.
Ive used a Lili of the valley stamp that I coloured with copics and loads of glitter, My minds eye papers, nesties, a coupe of white brads that i coloured with copics then glittered.
Take care.

Evening, hows everyone going with your Christmas cards? Think I might have to buy a box ( hangs her head in shame) for just the odd person. Brought this stamp a few weeks ago so I thought I'd better get a few more cards out of it before it gets put away for a while.

ICS no 45

Hi there, what an awsome sketch Dawn has given us to work with, I found it a pleasure to use, Dawn is also giving the winner some candy, so why not have a go you can twist , flip rotate anything really as long as the sketch is still visable.

I was lucky enough to win a challenge a few weeks ago and my prize was four digi images from Sketching Stamper Digi-Stamps you really must pop across and have a look they are gorgeous, one of mine is this partridge in a pear tree, Ithink it makes a great Christmas card coupled with Dawns sketch. I coloured it with copics mounted it on bazill basics and my minds eye dp , fiskars threading water punch bit of red ribbon, hero arts crystal snowflakes and diamante ribbon slider both of these of my sister, thank you mwahh,

Please pop over to ICS and join in the fun.
