CHNC challenge 305: anything goes as long as it's Christmas


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 305, which this week is 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas' - please click on the link to see what it's all about, including the lovely prizes to be won by randomly chosen winners ... and I hope to see lots of Christmas creations entered there.

I used a black textured card blank on to which I added a black and gold reindeer that I rescued from a card received last Christmas. I've had the die cut trees for ages and decided to use them, although I realise that they are not in proportion for the size of the reindeer ... but I think anything is possible when crafting (my excuse, anyway). Glittered gold flowers from Hobbycraft and a sentiment die cut that I've had for ages in my Christmas box.

Not a good photo, but couldn't get any better because of the glare from the foiling ... will try to get a better daytime picture.

This is my card for CHNC challenge 304: use a sentiment - please click the link to see the lovely card by my guest, Lozzy, one of the sponsors and please join in my challenge to make a Christmas design using a sentiment.

Penny's challenge 300: Halloween


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 300: Halloween. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of other teamies and we hope you will join in the challenge.

I apologise to Penny's team for my lateness in writing and publishing this blogpost, but John has been unwell again today and plans changed a bit.

Anyone who knows me well will know that I don't 'do' Halloween, but I didn't want to let Penny's down, so I decided to make a bit of a fun card that says Bah! humbug! to the whole thing.

The image was kindly given by Sparkle n Sprinkle, one of the sponsors of the challenge. I coloured this with spectrum noir pens, mounted on to an offcut of yellow paper and on to the background paper from a Tattered Lace magazine.

CHNC challenge 303: cute or anything goes as long as it's Christmas


It's Saturday, so that means that there is a new challenge on my Christmas weekly blog - CHNC challenge 303: cute or anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

This is my card using the lovely cute Robyn's Fetish chip the penguin image kindly supplied by them as one of this week's sponsors. I coloured with spectrum noir pens and die cut and embossed using a todo die. I added some Art Institute glitter on to the penguin's hat and also around the rim of the sentiment circle. The background card is Hunkydory and the lovely glittered snowflakes were from The Works (wish I'd bought more than one pack because there were none in the store when I went in yesterday ... would like to buy some more).

CHNC challenge 302: colour: turquoise/aqua ... a little or a lot


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 302 - please click the link to find out what it's about ... and I hope you will join in.

I used  the lovely snowman with bird image from Beccy's place snowman set, kindly given by Beccy as one of this week's sponsors. I coloured with spectrum noir pens and mounted on to some aqua card, using a couple of aqua snowflake papers and various other bits and pieces. I had a hard job to get a photo of this card as my camera just wouldn't open ... thought the battery must be dead, but plugged in and nothing was happening ... still couldn't open ... I think it is officially dead. So I took the photo on mobile ... and I won't bore you with the process of then getting it on to here.

This is my design creation for More mixed media October challenge, using orange. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope to see your mixed media entries - anything mixed media, it's an option to use orange.

I decorated a canvas, using spectrum noir aqua tints ink, white gesso, paper napkin, Papermania urban stamps bird print, Tattered angels rockin' renaissance textures, stampers anonymous leaf stamp, stazon jet black and craft leaves from The Works.

I really enjoyed blending the inks, dabbing, gesso-ing ...and I have coloured fingers to prove it - lol! I was going to add an autumn quote, but in the end decided to leave it as it is.

Crafting musketeers challenge 42: boxes


This is my design creation for Crafting musketeers challenge 42: boxes. Please click on the link to see the lovely creations by the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

Recently I bought a couple of kraft boxes from The Works, thinking they would come in handy and so I decided to use one of them. I sometimes have a look in TKMaxx to see if they have any cheap craft items and I found a little folder of 8 baby cards ... I wasn't really bothered about the actual cards, although I might be able to use bits of them some time, but was interested in the lovely craft patterned folder they were in. I used pieces of this to cut up and decorate the lid of the box, colouring the base with a fluorescent spectrum noir pen and wrapping round with the three different coloured washi tapes.

I printed the lovely box/bow image kindly supplied by The Stamping Boutique, sponsor of the challenge, colouring with fluorescent spectrum noir pens and edging with one of the washi tapes. I decorated the sides of the lid with some of the upcycled patterned kraft card and washi.


I've just taken a photo in daylight and it shows the fluorescent colours a lot more accurately ... you might need sunglasses on!
