Allsorts Challenge - week 502 - Milestones

Good Morning All - I have chosen the theme for this week and it should have been my turn to host the challenge but the lovely Tracy has stepped in to do the challenge post for me, HUGE thank you to Tracy

I have chosen the theme of Milestones so your creation must have a number on it.
It can be for a Birthday, Anniversary, or anything that requires a number on it.


The prize this week is some Tattered Lace Embossing Folders.

Here is my card.

The image is an old LOTV but I have added a touch of glitter glue to the champers falling out of the bottle and in the glasses.
The card is cream and I have used an old SU, embossing folder.
The 50 is chipboard numbers from Craftwork Cards, a long time ago,
that I have covered with gold glitter.
The wording is die cut from gold glitter card.
The lettering doesn't look straight but it is, it is the photo that isn't.

 This card is for my Hubby, a plain and simple card because he has no interest in cards what-so-ever, and I have no doubt that this card will be in the bin the day after the event, as are his Birthday cards.
The anniversary is not till April but I have a another milestone this month which we won't talk about.

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.
