Penny's Challenge 208

Hi again,

Two posts for me today. This time it's my card for this weeks challenge at Penny's.  This week the theme is Anything Goes so it's a nice easy one for you.  This weeks sponsor is Bugaboo so of course I have made a CAS card because that's what I do with Bugaboo images, I love them.

Here it is;
This image was so easy to use. A quick bit of colouring to match the papers and then a simple design led to a simple yet effective card.  The sentiment is a magazine freebie that I added to the image. I think the image is so versatile, you could use so many different sentiments with this to make many different fab cards.

Thanks for dropping by today. Happy crafting.
Cheers Nicole

Inky Impressions Challenge 190

Hi there,

How are you all?  I have a great little Inky Impressions image to share with you today.  It is from last months release and it is called 'Marleigha's Reindeer'.  This weeks theme is 'Winter Wonderland' so I decided to make one more Christmas card (although we have a hot Christmas here) because I just had to use her, she is so adorable.

Here it is;

I am pretty pleased with how this one turned out, I really enjoyed colouring it.  The papers are American Crafts Merrymint and I have coloured with my Copic's.  I have used an American Crafts Knock Out border punch and a lovely Whimsy die for the sentiment.  I used my Wink of Stella pens to make it sparkle and added gems to the snowflakes left over from the border.

Thanks for dropping by today, I really appreciate it.  I do hope you will drop by the challenge blog to check out the other inspiring cards and then enter this weeks challenge.

Penny's Challenge 207

Hi there,

How are you all? My card for this weeks challenge at Penny's is using a happy little stamp from Robyn's Fetish. The theme this week is Anything but Christmas so I thought this stamp would be useful for a farewell card for a colleague at work who will be retiring early next year.

Here it is;
The whole time I was making this card I had the Goodbye, Farewell.... song from The Sound of Music stuck in my head, annoying but fun. The lady this card is intended for is such a good person who has had a hard time of late so I wanted to make it a special one. I hope she will like it.

Thanks for dropping by today, I love that you came by for a visit.

Happy crafting

Inky Impressions Challenge 188

Hi folks,

I hope you are all well and are up to date with all your Christmas prep, I know I'm not. :) This weeks challenge at Inky Impressions has a Snow theme to it.  Perfect for all of your beautiful wintery Christmas cards.  I found it strange though as it is lovely and warm in my part of the world, but fun all the same.  I have used the super cute digi Merry Kiss-mas, I am loving penguins at the moment and these two are fab.

Here they are;

I have used a Swiss dots embossing folder to look like snow falling and just one piece of design paper for the background.  I have coloured these two with some of my new Copic's, I love these colour combo's (R35, 46 &59, G21, 24, 28 & 29, W1-7) they were so easy to use and so effective. The sentiment is a Whimsy die that I got the other day, I love it. I added some Stickles and Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.  There you have it, simple but sweet.

Thanks for popping by today.
