Christmas Wreath

Hello!  I'm back with another Christmas card, this time a CASE of a CASE.  It all started when I saw Michele's CASE of Bonnie's cards.  I didn't have the stamp set but sometimes you've just got to check on eBay, and guess what I found?

I'm entering it into Colour Hues - Scarlet and Green.  (I did have another card lined up for this challenge so I might be back soon with another entry.)

and Darnell's NBUS challenge.

The extra leaf sprig is from Uniko, the bow from Tim Holtz and the berries from a Posca paint pen.  The green ink is Altenew.

Seize The Birthday - CASE a Seize The Birthday Designer


Hello, our final challenge of the year at Seize The Birthday is to CASE a Seize The Birthday Designer.
I cased this card by Jules, who has just moved over to Colour Hues Challenge.

I loved the collection of animals having a fun trip, and it inspired me to buy the bus set by Art Impressions.  It was a labour of love, though, colouring in those tiny images and die cutting them out.  At least I had the forethought to stamp the images out several times while they were sitting in the MISTI.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog to see who the other designers and our surprise party guest have CASED, and join in with us.  Or just play along with any birthday project.

Stencilled Christmas


Here I am, back already with another Christmas card and another challenge.  This time, it's for Simon Says Wednesday challenge, Stencil It.

and Inspired By - I've gone with the colours.

The little dog is a woodblock stamp from Rubber Stampede, the stencil is Tim Holtz, and the sentiment is Clearly Besotted.

I think I'll be back soon with another Christmas card!


I'm also adding this to Stencil Fun at Darlene's kind suggestion.

LOVE to have you SHARE our BADGE

Red, White and Blue Gnome

It's ages since I played in challenges, and I've noticed that some challenges are closing, or numbers are dwindling, so it seems to be not just me.  Anyway, I'm going to try to play in more challenges more often.

So, this card is for two challenges:

52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Colour Challenge Blue, Red and White

and Inspired By - Gnomes

The gnome image is from Two Jays Stamp Co. and the sentiment die, background stencil and its are Tim Holtz.

Hopefully I'll be back in the not too distant future playing in another challenge or two!
