More Christmas Joy...

Hi fellow crafters,  I am back today posting another Christmas card.  I had earmarked this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - FMS213 earlier in the week, but my real inspiration came when taking a peek at my sister in law Vikki W's blog and saw the Stampin' Royalty Picture Inspiration Challenge SR#304 for this week.  Once again I have used my favourite Christmas stamp...I knew I would as soon as I saw the inspiration picture!  Thanks for taking a peek.

Christmas Joy...

Back today with another Christmas card for my (very slowly) growing stash.  For this card I have played along with the team at CAS(E) this sketch! and their current sketch CTS150.  Originally I was planning on using a floral stamp on this card but when foraging through my Christmas stamps today I thought this stamp would do just nicely.  I think this is my favourite Christmas stamp that I own so I do like this card...I hope you do too...thanks for taking a peek.

Freshly Made Sketches 212

 I'm back today to post a card that I managed to finish making last night.  This is another birthday card and this time I have played along at Freshly Made Sketches using their latest Sketch 212.  I took this photo late last night and the lighting isn't very good and unfortunately I have already popped the card in the post as it has many miles to travel before reaching it's destination on Friday.  I really liked this layout and think I may use it as a go to again in the near future.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Happy Birthday

I made this quick colourful card yeterday.  Needing to make a birthday card for a little girl who was turning 3 I was blog hopping to find a challenge that might give me some inspiration and when I came to the City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 287 - Dye It! challenge I knew I needed to look no more.  I was always going to use balloons on this card so when the guidelines for this challenge said there could be no stamping or DP I decided to use these balloon split pins I had in my stash which determined the inks that I would use Kaleidacolor Raised Rainbow Dye Inkpad, Melon Melody which I brayered across card that I had embossed with a Happy Birthday embossing folder.  After assembling it all together I am quite pleased with the result.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Merry Christmas

Happy to be back posting today, one because it is a public holiday here and two, because I have made another Christmas card for my (very small) stash.  This is a very different Christmas card for is pink....and that is because I have played along at TIME OUT challenges and their Challenge # 43 Christmas with the optional twist of "use pink and/or purple".  I have also played along with Mojo Monday - The Blog using their latest sketch 421.  Thanks for taking a peek,  I may just go and make another Christmas card now using the colour purple!
