Candle Trio

Hello everyone, another Christmas card for my growing collection. It feels weird working on next years collection when we haven’t finished this one but I’m not complaining. This card is actually the combination of 2 challenges.


This is the card that came from the combination of
Daring Cardmakers Shining Lights

and then the sketch #345 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

The candle stickers have been sitting in my box for a number of years; wonderful to see them being used at last. I am really happy with how these two challenges came together. Found the Peace on Earth chipboard piece in my stash as well and coloured it in with some gold ink. It is so good to be using my stash for my crafting.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Have fun reading a book.

Natural, White and Gold

Hello everyone, yes I am back card crafting and writing posts again despite my shoulder. I have been told by the professionals around me that I am not to baby my shoulder and to use it despite the pain it is causing at the moment. So I am doing what I love to do … craft!!

Anywho onto this card project. This card was inspired by 2 challenges – one a card sketch and the other a colour challenge. And this is the card that I made

11 23 Gold White Brown

And these are the 2 challenges that I am entering. First off the sketch from Mojo Monday #527 – 

and then the colour challenge with The Daring Cardmakers – Natural, Gold and White

Taking the inspiration of the Natural I decided that I would use papers that depicted the natural environment – like browns and leaves and then I added in Gold and White elements. This paper pack has featured in a couple of my cards lately because it has been sitting on my desk from that last time that it was used. I hope that you like my interpretation of the theme.

Thanks for stopping in on my blog today. I hope that you find it both fun and maybe gets some inspiration as well. I really appreciate all of the likes and comments that my posts have been receiving lately. Before you leave my blog let me inspire you with this quote I found.

Only Jesus is worthy to be praised :)

Until my next post,
Keep moving forward always.

Roo Christmas

Hello everyone, today I am bringing you a card inspired by 2 challenges.

Over at Shopping our Stash it is Dare the Embossible Dream. Which means its time to share your embossing skills of any kind.  And then over at the Daring Cardmakers it is

So by combining these 2 challenges together I made a 1 layer card using a large image which is a composition of several digi stamps from Make it Crafty.

09 30 Roo Christmas

I think that this highlights an Australian Christmas. We don’t have any snow, it is usually blistering hot. But this Christmas I think that we would all love to have rain for our presents because we need a break in our drought. I think that when I coloured in this I was thinking of greener happier times in the western regions of Queensland.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card making project combining the 2 challenges together. I appreciate all of the likes and comments that my posts receive. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought to ponder on.
