My Time To Craft 'Santa' Challenge

Good morning everyone. Boy it is so cold I am sure we are going to get some snow soon which would be much preferred to the awful rain we had yesterday.

Anyhow, this week at My Time To Craft we would like to see your 'Santa's' so any project just so long as it has a Santa on.

I made this shaped card for my friends family that have a baby, it doesn't really show in the photo but his boots and belt have been enameled black and his hat and coat trim are glittered. The base shape I used is from the Silhouette store and then I cut all the layers on my Cameo after making the base into a top folding card.

Moving Along With The Times 'Christmas Crackers' Challenge

Good morning everyone, well it isn't long now until the big day. Are you all flat out shopping, wrapping and generally Christmasing lol.

This week at Moving Along With The Times Judith challenged us to 'Christmas Crackers' no we don't want to see you all make your own Christmas crackers we want to see you funny cards.

I used an image from Bugaboo as I love their funny ones and made this card for my aunt and uncle who love a giggle. I kept it clean and simple so that that the focus was on the image and sentiment. I added glitter to all the white trim edges and glossy accents to her spectacles.

Moving Along With The Times 'Clean & Simple' Challenge

Good morning all. Boy is it cold today, I cannot get warm at the moment even though the heating is full on.

Anyhow how it's Thursday so that means time for another challenge at Moving Along With The Times and this week Shell challenged us to 'Clean & Simple' and the lovely Krista at Saturated Canary not only gave us a prize but all the dt images to play with.

I have loved this 'Ice Cream & Pickles' image since it was first released but haven't had any use for it but decided to just make a card for fun (well that was the plan). My cousin called in on Tuesday and told me she is pregnant at 40, I cannot imagine starting again especially as she has two girls of 18 & 17 years old. Anyhow her partner is a right joker and always catching her out so she decided to get one back on him. She asked if she could have the card once made and would I put 'It's twins' on it, just for a joke. I can't wait to see what he says, I am off to deliver it later.

I thoroughly enjoyed colouring this image and it didn't take that long.
