Scrap white card using Lil Inkers stitched square die
Cut the image from bronze glitter card, from years ago, even though it looks more like gold on the photo.
and then cut the image out of the stitched  card and inlaid the gold image .
The stars are from the same die.

There are actually 7 stars that goes with this die,  no idea where the other star went, must have gone wandering.

Rudolph Day - Penultimate

Here we are on to the October Rudolph day over at Scrappy Mo's

I have used the Woodware stamp - Trio of Trees - who'd have guessed that eh!
Papers are from the Frozen Paper pad, by Crafts and You
 Eucalyptus Stickles on the large 'lights' .
Sorry about the photo's but they don't do the cards justice.

The stars are from a die called Silent Night and I have cut them from a snippet of glitter paper.
So this means that for the first time for a few weeks I can charge into the playground, which, if I have done my sums correctly it will be week 200, well done Miss Di, you are a star
Need to check out plans for Bonfire Night, hope she has made the toffee and the parkin.

Only one more Rudolph Day left in 2015, where has this year gone???
Thanks for popping by and love to hear from you.

Saturday morning and a new challenge over at Allsorts.
First of all I would like to welcome a  new Team mate to the Allsorts DT.
Welcome Kevin of McCrafty;s Cards.

It is week 333 and the the theme has been chosen by Helene which is -
Use a sentiment as the focal point of the card.

Our sponsors this week are:-


Marianne Designs with this super prize

To be honest I have no verses but so lucky that I bought this lovely Happy Birthday die by Memory Box a while ago. Bought it really for easy mens cards as I don't find them at all easy.

 I have cut it from some really pretty glitter  paper, from years ago, the photo doesn't really do it justice. I have also used Memory Box - Star flowers die.
Looking forward to seeing your entries this week.
Do pop over to the challenge blog and see the lovely cards made by the Design Team.

Yet another week has passed by and we are on to week 332 at Allsorts and the challenge
chosen by Brenda, is no designer papers

This is the fabulous prize on offer.

A tad out of my comfort zone, but hey ho, it's a challenge.

Stamp - Lavinia, doesn't seem to have a name, it is only one image but is it so flexible that you can move the stem so many different ways.

Distressed Ink - Barn door
Sentiment  Craftwork Cards

Have a great weekend.
