Penny Black and More challenge - December

Good Morning All.
The challenge over at Penny Black and More for December is 
Black and White plus one other colour.
It is my turn to be the guest designer from the Allsorts Design Team
.

For my card I have used the Penny Black stamp - Flower amongst Flowers.
Stamped with Versafine Onyx Black
As you can tell my other colour is green.
The backing card and ribbon are SU
and the white EF is from Crafts Too A4 folder.
The four little flowers in the corner are from the Hobby House but I have coloured them with a black Promarker and placed a white pearl in the centre..
Sentiment is computer generated and punched using SU punches.
Not a very good photo.

There are some fabulous prizes on offer too. and while it is a manic month for all of us, if you can find the time to join in, then you may be a lucky winner.

Have a great week and keep warm.

Allsorts challenge week 392 - CAS

Good Morning all and as it is Saturday it is another challenge over at Allosrts
The lovely Annie, who is enjoying her summer over in Oz, has chosen the theme of 
CAS.

We have two sponsors this week Tattered Lace with this lovely prize for the lucky winner.

and

Here is my card.
I have used the Woodware stamp Special Bird.
I cut down a 7 x 7 card to fit this image and then cut a slightly smaller piece of white card onto which I stamped the image.
Paper pieced the tail, flower and wing with some old SU papers.
Coloured in the rest of the bird and grass and leaves.
A tad of glossy accents on the beak.
Really looking forward to seeing your CAS cards this week.
Please do go and check out the entries from my lovely Teamies.
Isn't it great to get presents from your other half - on this occasion not so good, full of cold and feeling rough.

Thanks

Final Rudolph Day of 2016

Hello everyone, well where has this year gone, I am sure you all agree that it doesn't seem two minutes since the first challenge in January. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mo and her lovely teams for all the time and lovely creations that they have given us throughout the year.
Thank you all.

This card was sort of cased from a card a Lady (cant remember her name) did at a demo at Samuel Taylors.
Using the Woodware stamp Berry Wreath, which I did some other cards with a few months ago.
I have used stickles but she used Novo pearls. 
There is only one card from me in this style as to be honest I found making this quite traumatic.
 I am totally uncertain if I want to send this card to anyone, I feel I want to keep to remind me not to make it again!
See you all in January, God willing.

Allsorts challenge week 390 - O Christmas Tree

Good Morning all, once again it is my turn to choose the theme for the Allsorts challenge and I have chosen the theme of......
O Christmas Tree, yes I want to see a Christmas tree somewhere on your creation.
Here is my card.
Stamp -Woodware
Papers old SU
Sentiment die - seems to be floating in my wording and numbers die draw without a folder, no idea how that has happened but looks like Mr Nobody has found his way into my Craftroom, again.
Stickles glitter glue.

Well, being Christmas, you don't just make one do you?
so I did another  4, but you can only see three, lol.
The other backing papers are also old SU

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Ribbons
with this lovely prize.

Lovely collection don't you think?
To be honest I have now lost count on how many Christmas cards I have made this year but I am now certain I have a good start on next years, no it is not sad, I just love making Christmas cards.
Have a great week everyone.

Allsorts challenge week 388 - Time


Well another week has passed and we are now onto week 388.
The lovely Wendy has chosen the challenge for you this week and it is ....

Time - feature a clock or numbers on your creation

Our sponsor this week is the Hobby House
I must add that the background paper on my Rudolph card on last weeks challenge was from the Hobby House, I totally forgot to mention it, sorry.


Panic here, nothing at all with a clock, did a card with numbers and hated it and then along came a crafting friend call Anne and rescued me with a couple of images from Craftwork Cards and I chose this one because the hands look to be pointing to 5 o'clock (yes they do) and as my Grandson's birthday is the 5th of the 12th, I thought it quite appropriate.

I made an error with the number 8, should not have done it in red but is doesn't look as bad IRL.

If you have the time, (get it) then we would love to see your entry in our challenge this week and please do check out the lovely makes from the rest of the Team.

Had a really lovely time last week as we went with our Daughter, Hubby and Grandson's to Loch Lomond for the half-term holiday, I really didn't want to go as I thought it would be too cold, but it was great. Stayed in a fabulous 4 bedroom house, did a bit of colouring and played loads of games in the evening. Went to Fort William to go up Ben Nevis but it poured down that day and was a tad wild  so we didn't bother. Had a free speedboat ride from the top of the Lock, where we were, to the bottom and back. Really nice to have had some real time with the Grandsons as they are getting older and have other commitments we do not have the time together that we used to have.

 Have a great week.
