Christmas Card Club Challenge #4 - Snowy Mountains and Skies

Hi Crafters,

Firstly I'd like to apologise for not visiting you all lately. 
Orders have been coming in thick and fast and whilst this is a good thing it prevents me from spending time blogging and commenting so I'm sorry if you haven't heard from me for a while. I appreciate all who have commented here of late and I will try to pop by soon.

Now on to the Christmas Card Club theme for this fortnight...


Christmas Village Die by Crafters Companion
Gold Glitter Card
Gold glitter Embossing Powder


This is a very minimal and CAS card design for me. I cut the die and inked through it with Versamark embossing ink then sprinkled with gold glitter embossing powder and heat set.
It looks very sparkly in real life.
I've only managed one card this challenge but a lot of the team have been making multiple cards this year to get ahead with the Christmas rush, do take a look at their marvelous designs - a list of their blogs is in the tab at the top of my page.


Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Every Saturday - #321 ATG Christmas
CHNC Extra - February Challenge
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - #403 Christmas
Winter Wonderland - ATG Christmas
Allsorts - #403 ATG

Passion For Promarkers Challenge #382 - Clean & Simple

Hi Crafters,

Today's theme at Passion For Promarkers is...

Clean & Simple

...one which always stretches me as I struggle to create CAS designs. I just never know when to walk away and leave the embellishments alone. Not that I ever over embellish my regular cards either but the minimal look is just not in my nature - this is evident when I look round my craft room and the rest of my house now I come to think of it, lol.

Anywhoooo....this is as clean and simple as it gets for me but I'm sure you can do better and we would love to see all your wonderful creations entered in to the challenge this week.
Please remember to use your Winsor Newton (formerly Letraset) Alcohol Markers somewhere on your project and follow the theme, you can make any project too so it doesn't have to be a card.

Love Birds

Hi Crafters,

What a dreary day it is here so this card should cheer you up!
The pretty flowers are a new (to me) Sue Wilson die that I purchased and the sweet birds belong to a Spellbinders die which I have cut apart and placed in a die cut cage from Cherry Lynn.

I have used this very pretty vellum sheet today secured behind the corner punches for my background. The dotty cardstock is from Anna Marie Designs which has been languishing in my craft room for far too long, thought it was about time I cut into it.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Fab n Funky - #336 Birds
Crafting When We Can - #137 Flowers
Crafty Creations - #334 ATG
Fussy & Fancy - #180 Fussy & Fancy


Thanks for your kinds words and for visiting here today.

See you soon,

Christmas Card Club Challenge #3 Festive Foliage

Hi Crafters,

It's time for our fortnightly meeting of the Christmas Card Club and to share our makes with you.
The theme this time is...

Festive Foliage

I thought I'd better make a couple of cards this time as my teamies have been making multiple cards for the previous challenges. It really does pay dividends when December arrives and you have a lovely pile of Christmas cards to go at.
Both of these were Craft Creations decoupage sheets and this is now the last of my stash of them used up.

I hope you have a lovely Sunday and please visit the rest of the team to see what they have been up to (list in tab at top of page)
