Allsorts challenge week 393 - Christmas Lights

Penultimate challenge before our two week Christmas challenge and the lovely Helene has chosen the theme of ....... Christmas Lights.

We have two lovely dies for this weeks prize.

Here is my card

Another challenge that I was in a dither with, as I had nothing with Christmas Lights, but like most of you I get mails from Pinterest but normally I delete them,  as I find if I take a look, I spend far too much time looking. But on this one occasion, I looked and low and behold there was this image as a free download, I could not believe my luck. Never moved so fast in my life, grabbed it straight away.

The image was from FunPup, which I think is no longer trading.
Papers Nitwits/LOTV
Stars and sentiment very old Craftwork Card.

I printed off about 30 of this image as I thought it would be great for my youngest Grandson's class mates cards for next year, don't moan, took them with me to Loch Lomond and he ended up colouring a few of the images and did a fantastic job of it too. I think I will use smaller stars in future and send the rest of the images up for him to colour.
Once again sorry about the photo.
Have a great week.

Penny Black and More challenge - December

Good Morning All.
The challenge over at Penny Black and More for December is 
Black and White plus one other colour.
It is my turn to be the guest designer from the Allsorts Design Team

For my card I have used the Penny Black stamp - Flower amongst Flowers.
Stamped with Versafine Onyx Black
As you can tell my other colour is green.
The backing card and ribbon are SU
and the white EF is from Crafts Too A4 folder.
The four little flowers in the corner are from the Hobby House but I have coloured them with a black Promarker and placed a white pearl in the centre..
Sentiment is computer generated and punched using SU punches.
Not a very good photo.

There are some fabulous prizes on offer too. and while it is a manic month for all of us, if you can find the time to join in, then you may be a lucky winner.

Have a great week and keep warm.

Final Rudolph Day of 2016

Hello everyone, well where has this year gone, I am sure you all agree that it doesn't seem two minutes since the first challenge in January. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mo and her lovely teams for all the time and lovely creations that they have given us throughout the year.
Thank you all.

This card was sort of cased from a card a Lady (cant remember her name) did at a demo at Samuel Taylors.
Using the Woodware stamp Berry Wreath, which I did some other cards with a few months ago.
I have used stickles but she used Novo pearls. 
There is only one card from me in this style as to be honest I found making this quite traumatic.
 I am totally uncertain if I want to send this card to anyone, I feel I want to keep to remind me not to make it again!
See you all in January, God willing.

O Christmas Tree, yes I want to see a Christmas tree somewhere on your creation.
Here is my card.
Stamp -Woodware
Papers old SU
Sentiment die - seems to be floating in my wording and numbers die draw without a folder, no idea how that has happened but looks like Mr Nobody has found his way into my Craftroom, again.
Stickles glitter glue.

Well, being Christmas, you don't just make one do you?
so I did another  4, but you can only see three, lol.
The other backing papers are also old SU

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Ribbons

Lovely collection don't you think?
To be honest I have now lost count on how many Christmas cards I have made this year but I am now certain I have a good start on next years, no it is not sad, I just love making Christmas cards.
Have a great week everyone.
