Sketch Saturday 21

I have got rather behind with challenges this week. This is my card for this weeks challenge on sketch saturday. I used my rather lovely DCWV Christmas papers and another pointsetia :) I even managed to bring myself to actualy put a charm on, they usualy just get gazed at. The red paper has been embossed using my cuttlebug but it does not show well in the picture. Hope you like it, thanks to looking.

Cute Card Thursday and Friday Sketchers

Dinky Dots Den - Challenge 1 DT

This is my entry for the first challenge over on Dinky Dots Den. As its a Design team call they said you could make as many items as you liked. I got quite into the Halloween theme as I dont normally do Halloween it was fun and I made three items, AJ Wizard is so cute I found him great to work with.

My first item is a Halloween card using AJ Wizzard and Halloween papers downloaded from Canon Scrapbooking

I then made a treat box (they are marshmallows inside - well they were i should say) I thought this would be neat to keep inside the front door for when we get trick or treaters round. The papers are offcuts from the card and i found some funky ribbon in my drawer.

Lastly I printed AJ onto some shrink plastic and coloured him. I have put the shrunk AJ on a keyring with some Halloween colours ribbon and a couple of charms (made the 'Boo' with some letter beads and findings in my stash). I think AJ makes a really cute keyring.

I look forward to making more things with the Dinky Dots images :) TFL let me know what you think.

Turn up the heat - Cupcake Crafts Challenge

This is my entry to the Cupcake Crafts Challenge. I went for hot colours as me and heat embossing are a very messy combination! The stamps are from The Unity Stamp Company and papers are DCWV and plain cardstock. TFL let me know your thoughts.

Sketch Saturday 19 and Papertake Challenge

There was a choice of two challenges on the Papertake Weekly Challenge this week. It is their first birthday so you could do a card for a first, e.g birthday, christmas etc, or you could do a card with no stamping. Well no stamping was a difficult one so I did a first Birthday card, I will probably use it for my niece as she is one in December. To make the card I used the Sketch on Sketch Saturday shown below. Thanks for looking, I hope you like it, let me know your thoughts.

A Spoonful of sugar challenge

I had the misfortune to have to make a sympathy card today, I thought I would cheer the occasion up by making it for a challenge too. Here therefore is my entry for this weeks challenge on A Spoonful of Sugar the card had to be pink and green. I would like to say that it looks better in the flesh, having a bit of trouble with my camera in the dodgy autumn light.
If you have a chance take a look at this great blog candy being given on the 16th.

Cupcake Craft Challenge 8 - Sketch

There was a Christmassy feeling in our house today. The Christmas cake was in the oven and I made a Christmas card for the Cupcake Craft Challenge. I think the card was more of a success than the cake - there are benefits of making it early, I can make another! As you can see from the card I am loving my cuttlebug, I can't leave it alone :) The sketch for the challenge is shown below.

This card was made for my Gran to give to her friend who is 90 next week. It has no stamping on it which is a bit strange for me :)

Cupcake Craft Challenge 7 - Christmas

This weeks challenge over on Cupcake Craft Challenge was to make somthing with Christmas in mind - it could be a card, decoration, atc etc. I went for a card as usual :) I used my new Cuttlebug embossing folders that I am in love with at the moment and a Christmassy Tilda I managed to buy last week on the market place at UKScrappers. The colours have come out a bit strange in the photo.
