Sketch time at Incy Wincy

Good morning all. It’s time for another challenge over at Incy Wincy.
This week our sponsor is the fantastic KennyK.

We have a fab sketch for you to follow this week.

We were lucky enough to have some KennyK stamps to play with.
I used this stamp called Scrooge for my teenage nephew’s Christmas card.

The papers were from Stamping All Day.
The image was coloured with Promarkers
The snowball/pom pom trim was from my stash – a gift from my best friend.
The parcels are part of a Nit Wit set and have been recoloured in my graphics program.

Have fun with the challenge.

Christmas in September

Good evening all, over at CRAFT today we have a new 'Christmas' Challenge.
Our sponsors for this week are 

For my card I used two stamps from stamp Fairy.
'Molly throughout the year-  January and 
Molly Winter 6 (Lamp post)'

My grandson has started school this week and I thought I would make his teacher's Christmas gift.

I use the tutorial here to create this chocolate card.

Enjoy your day and the challenge.

Hey Baby

Good morning I hope you are all well and enjoying life.
Before I introduce the new challenge at Incy Wincy this week, I have to anoounce the winners of my ATCs from last week’s blog hop.

I had four people who wanted a chance to win one of my ATCs and they all completed the blog hop.

So I created another ATC so that they can all have one.
Unfortunately ladies you won’t know which one you get until they arrive.

The winners are
Melissa Sunshine Honeybee
Tracey Boley
KT Fitkitty

Thank you ladies for taking part in our ATC Swap and Blog hop

And now onto this weeks challenge sponsored by

Hey Baby

This means any baby related cards will fit perfectly.

These two cuties are Peapod twins Benny

Yes I've turned the pea pod into an aubergine(egg plant) to suit the colour scheme of my card.
I embossed a piece of card with my cascading hearts folder and used my Dusty Concord Distress Ink to colour it.
I used one of numerous Spellbinder die sets ( I think it's one of the fancy labels) to give the card some dimemsion.
The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts.

Hope you have a great day, and enjoy the challenge.
It's back to work for me today.
