Good morning,
Today over at Natalie and Amy’s Challenge we have a new monthly challenge.
The theme for this week is a nice easy one……
We would like to see any of your Christmas themed projects.
My card is actually for my sister and brother in law and uses the gorgeous Winter Fairy from Whimsy Stamps.

As always she is coloured with Promarkers. I used glossy accent on the berries and glamour dust glitter on the fur.
I have to say that the photograph really doesn’t do it justice.

The papers are from the Nitwit Kit Woodland Wishes- here

Christmas fun

Good Morning,
The weather here is dismal – wet and dark, but at least the wind has dropped.
Today I would like to share a card I have made for my nephew. He is a grown man but only 21 so it’s difficult to decide what to do for his cards now.

The image is from Kenny K digital stamps here and is coloured with Promarkers.
The snowflakes were cut using Marianne dies
I really can’t remember where the papers are from. 
The sentiment was made on my computer.
The gems are from my stash
I would like to enter this into the following challenges…….

Christmas decoration

Good morning,
Today we have a new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.
As always we're Anything Goes with an optional twist and since November 13th is Random Acts of Kindness Day our twist is to create a RAK for someone.  And there's actually a Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.  Check it out!

It’s my turn to make an Anything Goes project and here it it….

The gorgeous, gorgeous image is Noelle Holiday Hat by Rick St Dennis- here. Oh how I loved colouring her with my Promarkers. She will be used over and over!

The template for the bow card can be found at Sandra’s Scrap Shop - here.
Thanks to the inspiration from Chantal I used it to make a Christmas decoration for my best friend – which I suppose could be classed as a random act of kindness.

The papers are from Michelle Roos Christmas time set – here
The snowflakes were cut using two different Joy snowflake dies.
The pine branches were made using a memory box die.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
Gems and ribbon are from my stash.
