Christmas Bauble

Good evening and first let me say a huge sorry to my teamies at SFTW. This post should have been up this morning and I got so tied up with what is going on at work at the moment that it completely went out of my head and I didnt schedule my DT post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So once again I am so SORRY.

This fortnights challenge over at stampin for the weekend is a nice simple Anything goes. Our generous sponsor this time is The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.


Now my DT card for this challenge may seem a little early as its a Christmas card but if you have been outside today you now that winter is definitely on its way and Christmas is only 61 days away!

 
For those of you that have a Cricut bear with me on this one because it was only a few days ago that I realised that I could cut different shaped card blanks with it! I have only had the machine for 2 years.............A note to my self  use the tools that I buy more often,  they are not ornaments!!!!!!!!!!
I have used last years lost and found Christmas papers for this one on a circular Card base cut at 5.5 inches. The image is by the talented Mo Manning which you can find here . I coloured my image using copics and a touch of stickles.The metal sentiment was found in the £1 bin at a recent craft show. The flower I made using my new favourite Cricut Cartridge Flower Shoppe and of course the scalloped circle was cut using my nesties.

Pumpkin Teddy Bea

Good morning everyone only 14 days till Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeen!. So with that said here is another Halloween card. This time it is for a challenge over at Diva's by design and we want to see Spooooky stuff.
Now you know you have to be in it to win it so to be in with a chance of winning some lovely goodies from our generous sponsor Whoopsi Daisy head on over to the Diva's challenge blog. While you are there dont forget to take some inspiration from my talented teamies. They have come up with some corkers this time.




I have used some more of that fabulous Halloween paper from My Minds Eye teamed with a Teddy Bea image which you can find here. I love these little teddies but it has been quite some time since I coloured one up so I must rectify that in the very near future!. I have coloured her up using my trusted Copics. The tree and stars are from my button jar. The coner flourish is memory box sparkled up with some gems. The boo I cut from Sparkly paper using my Cricut,

Hazel the Witch

Good morning bloggers. Wasn't yesterday horrid?.... My garden looks like a swamp and our rotten dog thinks it's great fun to dig holes and then walk mud all though the front room. Apparently Pom's are not diggers according to our vet! I think someone needs to tell Bailey he's not a digger.

Any way on to the real reason that I am posting today and that's because we have a new challenge over at Stampin for the weekend. The challenge this time is Something Spooky. With Halloween just round the corner ther could't be a better opportunity to get out those witch and ghoul stamps and have a play. We are very lucky to have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge and they are...............

And
 

For my offering this time I have attempted a twisted easel card. I have never made one of these cards before and boy are they hard to photograph. I ended up having to tip the card slightly forward to get a picture. I am still not happy but what can you do?...............




The image I have used is Hazel  created by Sylvia Zet which you can buy from Wee Stamps. The papers are My Minds Eye Black Bird.I cut the papers using my Cricut into a scalloped squares. I have used a Memory Box die for the corner flourish and a Marianne die for the leaves. The flower I cut using my Cricut. I think that you may be seeing these flowers quite a lot on my cards. I have had a great time making them from my bag of scraps. The button and ribbon came from my ever growing stash of bits and bob's. Nearly forgot to say I coloured the image using my Copic's.
