Snowy Christmas

Good morning everyone. Wow Winter is really here now isn't it. Up here in the North of England we are being battered by gail force winds and heavy rain, perfect weather for sitting beside a nice fire and crafting away.
Today I'm here with my make for the Challenge over at the Graph'It Markers colouring challenge blog. We are being sponsored by Polkadoodles this week (Yay!) and the challenge is Snowy Christmas. Here is my make, and the colour chart I had to use.


The image is from the Work & Play 5 collection, Festive Hollybobs. I have kept it simple by just using an embossed background as this will be for our little Nico as he loves doggies.
The GI's I have used are:
Skin: 4125, 4150, 3120, 4145
Purples: 6190, 6180, 6140
Greens: 7240, 7220, 7210
Greys: 9104, 9103, 9102

With Thanks

Good morning and happy choosday. I'm back from my jollies in Sharm-El-Sheikh after having to stop an extra day. Oooo it was so hard to put up with an added day in the 33 degree heat, in a 5* hotel with fabulous food, waiters bringing drink and fruit round all day, lounging around the pool and eating fabulous food! Oh well, it won't be long until I'm back there.

Now onto todays make for the Digi Choosday blog. The theme we have this week is "With Thanks" You may want to get a start on making thank you cards for your Christmas gifts, or maybe you just want to thank someone for something they have done for you, or just for being a friend. Whatever it is we have lots of inspiration for you. Here is my make.

I have used a page from the fabulous Colour Therapy issue 2, Inspiring Foliage. The stamp is from one of my SU stamp sets. I have used my Sakura Tiara pens that I have had forever. I have embossed a back ground and mounted it on 3D foam, and then cut around the image and mounted that onto 3D foam as well.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Sparkly Christmas

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone. We have a new challenge for you at Digi Choosday and this week it is all about Christmas with sparkles! And here is my make.
I have printed some papers from the Angelberry Christmas collection onto centura pearl card to give the background some sparkle, I've added a bit of glare on the photo so you can see this. I've then printed some embellies from the same collection and some mushroom houses from the Home For Christmas Collection and added some glitter over the snow. I've mounted them all onto 3D foam to give it some dimension. These two collections work fabulously together don't you think!
 A couple of close up shots to show the glitter.

Now don't forget to get over to the blog to get the massive discount code to use on digis until midnight tonight! And of course check out my teamies fabulous makes, they will blow you away.

Autumnal colours.

Good morning. I hope all those that went to, or had fireworks parties last night enjoyed them and stayed safe. They're not my thing, I never liked them as a child and still don't so I usually stay home and keep warm and comfy. This year however I am in the sunshine in Egypt so don't need to wrap up to stay warm! As you are ready this I'm probably on my sun lounger colouring in or reading a good book!
So the reason I'm here is to share my make for the new challenge at Polkadoodles. The challenge we have for this next two weeks is to use the colours of Autumn and here is my make:
I have used one of the designs from the fabulous Colour Therapy Florabunda CD, you can also get this as a download HERE if you can't wait for a CD to arrive! This is one of the 6x6 designs and I have made a card blank to fit it using a Tattered Lace Essentials die. The sentiment stamp and the butterflies are from a Tatty Twinkle stamp set. And the die cuts are TL.
In the stripes around the image I've used a Sakura Tiara gold pen to add a bit of glitter, and some gems on the base.

Reds, oranges and browns.

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone.
Have you seen the new colouring books on CD and download at Polkadoodles yet? If not get over there and have a look. They sold out when they were on Create and Craft so grab your copy quick! 


You can Florabunda HERE and Inspiring Foliage HERE.

Now onto this weeks challenge at Digi Choosday.
Don't forget it's massive discount day so grab the discount code from the blog before midnight when it runs out.
The challenge this week is to use reds, oranges and browns. We have chosen this as these colours are all around us at the moment in the UK with it being autumn. Look at this photo I took in my garden of all the leaves that have fallen from the Apple and Pear tree.

And here is my card for the challenge.
I have used the sweet Snow White image and coloured her with alcohol markers. The papers I have used are from the Wonderland CD, they are all matted onto brown card.  I made my own flower using the same papers and the foliage is a Tattered Lace die. The bow is from the Octavia collection.
