Week 550 over at Allsorts and it is Christmas Trees

 Our lovely Susan chose the theme for this weeks challenge before she went on her break and she would like to see ....
Christmas Trees
on your entries.


I have used the Woodware stamp - Framed Trees.
Stamped with Memento - Bamboo Leaves.
Backing card old stock.
White glitter added to the dots and wavy lines on the tree.

It is times like this, with this type of image that a stamping platform really is worth it's salt, as you do need to stamp it more than once, well I did!

Thank you  for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Penny Black and More-December challenge.

Good Morning - it is my turn from the Allsorts team to be a guest designer for the Penny Black and More challenge.
The theme for December is to use the colours of Red, Green and Gold.


For my card I have used a Penny Black -wood mounted stamp
4056k- Kisses from 2010

I have paper piece the present with the same background card, which is from Kanban.
The gold glitter paper for the ribbon is some very old Craftwork Cards papers.
Computer generated sentiments.

Now if the challenge was red, gold and green it would remind me of the song by Culture Club, you know the one I mean? Wonder how many of you will be singing that all day now.

I am also going to enter this card in Scrappy MO's Rudolph Day December challenge. It officially ended in November but she does one in December for those who have not won a prize and have entered every month for the past year.

Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts challenge week 496 - Fairies , Fantasy and all things magical

Morning all - It is week 496 over at Allsorts and the theme  has been chose by the lovely Brenda.
And she would like to see ...

Faries, Fantasy and all thing Magical (but NOT Father Christmas or Santa, entries with him will not be eligible for the prize)

Our prize for this challenge is this...
Super stamp set

Brenda is not very well at the moment so our lovely Tracy has stepped in to run the challenge.
Thank you so much Tracy.

Here is my card.

For my card I have used papers, image and sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
The small fairy is a stamp that I stamped in black and cut round the image so I could place it directly onto the papers.
The ribbon was actually black with white dots and I coloured the white dots with pink to match.

Can you believe it is the 1st of December, yesterday finished writing my cards and then got Hubby to get all the presents out that I have bought and to be honest, some of them, I can not remember who I have bought them for.

Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Rudolph Day November 2018

I say officially because once again Mo is running the challenge in December for all of us who have not won a prize this year.
I  actually won a prize in the first R.D. challenge that Mo ran after she had taken over the baton from Sarn, who used to run the challenge.


For my card I have used a Woodware stamp, called 'Three candles'
which sort of reminds me of the sketch by the Two Ronnies - Four Candles (Fork Handles)
I have added lots of glitter and glossy accents to the candles.
To be totally honest the jury is still out on this one.

I am sure that you will all join me in saying a huge...
THANK YOU to Mo for running the challenge and the team for all their lovely inspiration and comments this past year.

Thanks so much for popping by and any comments that you are kind enough to leave.

Good Morning over at Allsorts Helene has chosen our theme this week and she would like to see your creation that are Inspired by a song.

The prize this week is a Bumper Bundle of some super items for one lucky winner.
So we are looking forward to seeing your song inspired creations.


Here is my card which was inspired by one of my all time favourites.... 

Bat out of Hell by Meatloaf


The image is Penny Black - Born Wild 2011
This speedy hedgie would be vroom, vrooming along but he is stopped at the traffic lights, surprised he stopped.
Paper LOTV/Nitwits.
Had those metal things for years.

Had a totally un-productive week, shopping wise, went out nearly all day Monday and Thursday and both days bought nothing at all.

Thank you so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts challenge week 494 - CAS Christmas

Good Morning - Another chance for you to catch up on your Christmas cards this week as the lovely Ellie has chosen the theme of ...

Clean and simple Christmas (CAS)

We have these two lovely Tattered Lace dies for one lucky winner

For my cards this week I have chosen this Father Christmas digi stamp from
Digi Stamp Boutique - sadly not available anymore


As you can see I have used the same image but just altered the backing card and ribbon.
There is a tad of glitter on these cards, around the white card that the image is stamped on, on the top of Santa's hat.
I must admit that when I came to write this post I panicked thinking I had forgotten to colour the berries red, so had to get the cards and check but I had glittered the berries in white glitter too.
The ribbon also has a touch of glitter on the outside edges but I have not added that as it came with the ribbon.
Computer generated sentiment.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.
Have a great week.
