I have created a trinket BOX decorated with BLOOMS.

Christmas Card Club Challenge #8 - Cats and or Dogs

 Hi Crafters,

It was Sylvie's turn to choose a theme this week and she would like to see your Christmas Cats and or Dogs.

I have chosen an LOTV printable image and made two cards using various snippets of papers in my stash.

My third card uses a download that I've had for ages, I think it is from Hunkydory but don't hold me to that.

I've added some die cut corners and gold glitter to accent the papers. The large 'Merry Christmas' is a Duo Die.

Have a great Easter Sunday.

Passion For Markers Challenge #635 - Animal Magic

 Hi Crafters,

It's was Lisa's turn to choose the theme this week for our challenge at Passion For Markers and she chose 


So we'd like to see your cards and projects with ANIMALS on them.

Remember to use your Markers and tell us in your post where you have used them and to link up to the challenge to be eligible for the prize. I'll tell you further down my post about the details of that but for now here is my project.

I decided to decorate a cover for a notebook this time using this fun image from Mo Manning called 'Airborne'.

I coloured my image using Promarkers and fussy cut it out to attach to my sky background which was a file I had on my computer and often print out when I need a sky scene. The notebook die came with a set of journal dies from Etsy and I cut this twice to add a shadow.

Our prize this week is from Di's Digi Stamps and they are giving away a $6 voucher for their store.

Christmas Card Club Challenge #7 - Festive Embossing Folders

 Hi Crafters,

I'm a little late posting my cards for the Christmas Card Club today - I always seem to be chasing my tail lately, but here they are....

I have used my favourite Sue Wilson Reindeer Embossing Folder on this one and added this very regal Stag from Two Red Robins. The background was inked and then sprayed with Diamond Sparkle Glitter from Crafters Companion.

This next batch were some that I made for last Christmas to send to my fellow crafting buddies but I haven't shared them yet so thought they fitted the bill perfectly for today's theme. This time using a Gemini Embossing Folder from Crafters Companion, die cut Bauble from Spellbinders, Nativity stamp and sentiment is from Woodware with some distress ink added whilst the die cut was still in the die.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Can You Handle The Pressure - ATG Embossing /Twist of Green

Why not take a look at the other ladies super Christmas creations by following their links here.

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you have a great Sunday whatever you are up to,
