CCC Mistletoe and Wine

Sorry I have been absent ladies.There has been so much going on over the past month that I don't know whether I'm coming or going.

Card # 1

 A very simple card using an LOTV an image from an old art pad.  I still have some left. I feel it's  a great pity that they discontinued them. It might be hard to see but there is definitely a little mistletoe in amongst the greenery. Sentiment computer generated. The wine bottle and glass of wine are stickers.

Card # 2

Sentiment as focus for last challenge


I found this poem online, the pine cone sprays are digi images from Fred She Said . They are black and white so I just added a little bit of colour to them so they stood out a bit.

Sorry for the quick post.  I'll try and get round your posts a little later. I'm hoping things might be a bit better for next time. 

 Belated birthday greetings to ValeryAnne. Hope you had a great day. x

International Art and Soul - Three of Something

 Time for another challenge at INTAAS and this time it is to use three of something. The theme was chosen by Jane this time.

My Card

I am still on a mission to use older dies and the two I have used on this card are from Memory Box and I diecut them in white glitter card. The paper is extremely old and I came across quite a few sheets of this pack which was an 8x8" pad which may have been Papermania but the front sheet is missing. The sweet image is from an LOTV Simply Print sheet.

Why not pop across to the blog and see what the rest of the team have come up with for this challenge?

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

12 Months of Christmas LinkUp Winter Sports

 Good morning. This morning I am showing my DT card for The 12 Months of Christmas LinkUp challenge. As always the challenge is Anything Goes with the option of following the twist.  This month the twist is Winter Sports. The Sleigh Belles team show their cards at the beginning of the month and mid month there will be cards from the Merry MAidens.

My Card

I think the image might be from Ruth Morehead but I am really not certain because it has been in my digi image folder from long before I started blogging at time when I didn't make a note of this sort of thing.  (Another name that is hovering in my mind is Sylvia Zet.) If you know different please let me know. The background paper is one from DDDoodles. As the image is a png. I just superimposed it onto the backing paper and it looks very effective.  A little glitter to the fur and one very quick Christmas card.

Hope you are all well.

Take care.

"Birthday" at MAWTT

 Hi, I'm a bit late showing my DT card for Moving Along With The Times where the theme is Birthdays.

My Card


I have made a double column card from white card stock and the paper I used is from The Works pad "Flowers Blooming". The banner die is Joanna Sheen and the pretty birdcage is from Cottage Cutz. The stamped greeting is from Crafter's Companion.  This is a very effective card which folds flat for posting.

Why not pop over to the blog to see the cards from the rest of the DT.

 Take care.

Clean and Simple for Christmas Card Club

 God morning and it's time for another card for our little club and, as you see, the theme this time is Clean and Simple. I made two very CAS cards and am quite pleased with them

Card # 1

This is an A6 and was made with ivory linen cardstock.

Card # 2

This one is 6" square and made with plain white cardstock. I used my scoreboard to score the lines.
Take care and enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend.
