Good morning everyone. I'm here today with a new challenge from the Polkadoodles blog. We are still in Christmas mode getting all our makes ready ahead so we don't have to rush at the last minute. Why not join us and get ahead. Or if you don't want to make anything Christmas related you can make anything you want as our challenge for you is always anything goes.
So here is my make.
 To make this I've used the fabulous Baked With Love Collection, again! You can also get this in download format should you want it right now. I've cut out the die shape in white card using the Stamps By Me Loving Wishes die set. And then cut out the inner tag four times with different papers and cut them into smaller squares to give a patchwork look, my regular followers will know how much I love doing this. Yes it takes a long time to do but I think it's worth it for the effect you get at the end. I've used a distress ink around the edges and them glued them in place and added faux stitching. I've then fussy cut the Ginger and all the embellies and mounted them in place on 3D foam to make them pop.
Here's a close up for you.

More Christmas

Good morning and a very happy
Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged once again to make something with a Christmas theme. For you as always the theme is anything goes.
So here is my make for this week.
I've used the Winnie Winterland collection for this card. I've used one of the backing papers, a sentiment and 3 flowers layered up. It's very simple but effective I think. I've distressed the edges of the paper and card and put them onto 3D foam to make them stand out. I've added some die cuts from the Flower Flourish Die behind the flowers in green glitter card.
Now as always don't forget to go grab today's discount code and see what the rest of the team have made.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations - ATG
Crafting From The Heart - ATG
The Paper Nest Dolls - ATG
Christmas Card Challenges - Christmas
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - ATG

Christmas in July

Good morning everyone, I'm here today with another Christmas make, I'm really getting in front with these, I hope you are too! This time it's for the new challenge over at the Polkadoodles blog.

I've used Winnie Winterland Collection to make this tag. The tag shape is just one that I cut myself, so no die needed to do this. I then cut the paper to small squares and trimmed the top 2 to match the edge. They were then inked and faux stitching added before gluing onto the base tag. I then used a flower from the collection printed in 3 different sizes and layered up with some stamens added. Behind the flower I used some die cuts using the same papers and the foliage die from the Polkadoodles Bird house die set.
Here is a close up of the tag for you.

Now pop over to the blog to get some more Christmas Inspiration from my teamies.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Cardz 4 Galz - Christmas
C.R.A.F.T - Christmas
Crafting With An Attitude - ATG
Star Stampz - Christmas

Good morning everyone. It's time for my turn to share a make with you for the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog. This week we are being sponsored by Pickled Potpouri and I got to play with the lovely Tulip digi. This image is so very versatile as you can use whatever colour you like. I've chosen a lovely rich red, what do you think?

I've used my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush pens, which I am just loving using lately. 
I've used the following colours:
020 Red
041 Light Green
and for the outline to give it some shadow:
303 Shadow Mauve
092 Blue Gray
So not much used but I think, a very elegant finish.
Now pop over to our blog to check out what else the team have been making with more images from Pickled Potpouri.

Thabk you

Good morning and a very happy
to you all. Over at the Digi Choosday blog today the team were challenged to make a Thank You card. For you the challenge remains as always, Anything Goes. 
Here is my make for this week.

I have used one of my fave collections for this make, it's an old one but still remains at the top of my list, and it's one I turn to many a time. It's from the Picknix 1 collection, and from the mini Home Grown collection within it.
I've used 3 of the papers and cut them down into squares. I've then distressed and inked the edges before gluing them in place. Then I added some faux stitching with a white pen, and layered up the 3 layers. I then used the Flowers 2 and the Super Sprigs Polkadoodles dies to create the flowers and foliage. I then used a Stampin Up die for the sentiment. I cut it out 4 times and glued them on top of each other to give it some dimension like a chipboard sentiment. I then cut it out in Kraft card and added it at the back slightly off to give it a drop shadow.

Now don't forget to pop over to the blog to check out my teamies makes and to grab today's massive discount code.
