Christmas Joy

Hello Everyone,
I am back with another Christmas Card – I just can’t seem to stop making them 🙂 Looks like I will have enough by the time I have to post them out this year.

This card was actually made with 3 different challenges in mind.
First off we have Catch The Bug Challenge Anything Goes
Saturday WklyCh BB
and then I loved the Stella Says Sketch Challenge #601


and last but not least – AAA Cards #106 Quote

The image is Christmas Word – Joy which you can purchase here from Bugaboo Digital Stamps.  This is one of my favourite Christmas stamps. But I have coloured it in with some Copics – these markers are not new to me but I have never gotten along with them :/ 2018 though is going to be the year that either I become comfortable with them or I am going to have to sell them.  I can not have such a huge investment sitting around doing nothing if I’m not going to use them.

The paper I used behind the main image I coloured with simple children’s markers in an Adult colouring book.  I have a lot of pages that I have coloured and I have decided that instead of them sitting around gathering dust I am going to use what I can in my card making and other paper crafts.  So I get twice the enjoyment out of them – 1st when I am colouring the page and 2nd when I re-purpose them into another project. 😀

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project today.  As always before you leave I would like to leave you with this thought:

Sliced Christmas

Hello Everyone,
Tell me what do you get when you make lots of cards that are shorter than your pretty papers? Any ideas (think)
A: Lots of paper strips. I was at a loss as to what to do with all of these until I looked at the CAS(e) this Sketch challenge and found this challenge going at the moment.

So I was able to use up a lot of my strips and since I had all the supplies out I ended up making 2 cards at the same time. This is a photo of one of the creations:
simpleChristmas.jpgIt’s a simple card but I really like it. I think I am going to have to keep this sketch in mind for using up other scraps I have in my stash.  Yeah I know I should probably just throw away any scraps – but I don’t like wasting any of my beautiful papers.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation today. And as always before you leave I would like to leave you with this thought:
This is definitely my prayer for the coming year.  May the New Year be so much more loving than 2017. Best Wishes to you all.

Have a Happy Crafty Fun filled kind of Day,

Christmas Time, Greeting Cards

Gingerbread Dance

Hello Everyone
Can you believe that there is less than a month until Christmas? I know I certainly can’t. I am so behind with my Christmas card making. It has been quite interrupted with my health and other family stuff but I am making some inroads. And here is another one to add to my pile 😀

One of the main reasons that I really like this card is because it is making use of my Christmas stash.  It is quite large … sales are a stash maker I tell you 😉

I have used the Christmas Cards All Year Round Challenge to start this card which was to use a Gingerbread image – I had this paper in my stash which I really couldn’t find the right card to use it on.  Then I went looking for a sketch to use and I found this one

I really don’t know what I would do without sketch. I find them a great starting place for making a card. I hope you like my take on it.  By combing these two challenges together I think I have come up with a simple but sweet creation. (puns intended!)

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. I would love to leave you with this thought before you leave:


When I am not sitting and crafting a lot of the time you can find me with my nose stuck in a book.  I love being transported to another place and time … even if its only for a small amount of time.

Have a Happy Crafty Fun Kind of Day
