C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 344 – 31st of December – Anything Goes


For our final challenge of 2015 (where has the time gone, right!) anything goes. I used a snow angel from Scrapper’s Delight called appropriately Little Snow Angels. This set includes 6 adorable images and a “snow” sentiment. They are all pre-colored. I layered the angels on a Christmas themed embossing folder. Sentiment is from JustRite.

This week, our challenge is “NEW”. I used a new stamp, new papers, and a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s stamp. The stamp is called “Curious Gifts” by Sami Stamps.  I coloured the stamped kittens with Copics, and paper pieced the presents. The sentiment stamp is by JustRite.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 342 – 17th of December – Thank You!


This week’s challenge is to make  thank you card. I like to thank some special people in my life during the Christmas season so I make a Christmas themed card. I used Smiley Snowman Digital Stamp #4116 from Spyder’s Other Corner. I made two versions of this card. One using Winter Flurries (retired from Stampin’ Up) debossed and the other embossed. I coloured the snowman with Copics. My inside sentiment with computer generated saying, “You warm my heart with your generosity.  Thank you.”

The Glory of Christmas – Challenge 74 – Anything Goes


People who know me, know I don’t like having my picture taken, nor do I do people pictures. All my friends challenged me to make a “Photo Card”  I was like….ah! man! But I was up to the challenge, but decided to tackle it in a different way. Last winter I was out on a cold, windy, basically white day but was struck at how beautiful the landscape was. I took one such photo, printed  it, added some bunnies and here is my “Photo Card” creation!

Our last challenge of 2015 runs 3 weeks. Please join us! And may I wish Everyone  a Merry Christmas and the Best in 2016. Keep Warm!

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 341 – 10th of December – Christmas


This week’s challenge was to make another Christmas card. I have a number of fabulous Christmas digi stamps from Bugaboo Stamps. I decided on a retired* stamp called Window Santa. I hand coloured him with Copics and decorated the window ledge with punched flowers (Nellie Snellen) and leaves (Martha Stewart and Stampin Up). *Each month Bugaboo added numerous new digi stamps, and each year they retire some. Check them out at and also look for their weekly “freebie”. When creating the card, I accidentally lengthened the jpeg, liked the result and made it as well.
