Sketch N Stash #129

Morning all, it's the final challenge for this year from Sketch N Stash.
As with the other challenges this year, we have taken the sketch from our archives and I've loved using these original sketches again.
The optional challenge set by Janet is 'no design papers'. Gosh, this was difficult ( I do hope the paper strip down the side of my card doesn't count!)
Please excuse this terrible picture of my card. It was scanned and as it's quite 'bumpy' it should really have been photographed, but you all know by now how useless I am at taking pictures and hubby is 'on holiday' and enjoying playing his PC game, so I didn't feel I should ask him.

We are being sponsored for our final challenge of 2013 by the Stamp Fairy and they are offering our winner a $10 certificate to spend in their shop, so well worth joining in with us.

I hope you all had a wonderful and peaceful Christmas and I wish you all a very happy and healthy new year.

Favourite Five Christmas Cards

Morning all, I am joining in with Debby's challenge for my five favourite Christmas cards.
This was quite a struggle for me because when I reviewed what I'd made, I found I didn't really have ANY favourites.
My problem seems to be, I love them when I'm making them but I don't like any of them that much once they're finished. Never mind, onward......

Three of these five were made in CAP2 (have I told you I love this program? Oh OK, don't all shout at once!)
If you would like to join in Debby's challenge just post your cards and link them to her blog here

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Just popping in to wish all my crafting friends and followers a very Happy Christmas and sending hugs to all those in need of them at this time of year.
May you all have a joyful and peaceful holiday and may 2014 be all you wish for.

Sketch N Stash #128

Morning all, time again for the Sketch N Stash challenge and this time another Christmas card from me.
The optional theme this time was my choice and I chose 'Glitter and Sparkle' Well, would you really expect anything else? I'm also going to be responsible for choosing the Top 3, so no pressure then.
My card for this challenge was made in CAP2 and I added loads of Stickles 'Stardust' for a really sparkly card.

We have 2 wonderful sponsors for this challenge and they are:
Ooh La La Creations who are offering a CD of our winner's choice 

and Inky Impressions who are offering another winner $10 to spend in their store

So please pop over to the challenge blog, take a look at the fabulous creations our DT have made, check out last time's winners and Top 3 and with TWO chances to win why not join in with us? We'd love to see you.

Hubby and I are celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary today, not sure if that merits congratulations or commiserations, I'll see how the day goes before I decide. Joke! I love him to bits and wouldn't change him for anyone (well, maybe Tom Selleck but no-one else!)

Sketch N Stash #127

Morning all, it's this fortnight's Sketch N Stash Challenge and I've made a Christmas card (yeah I know, don't faint)

We're being sponsored again by Crafty Individuals, who are offering our lucky winner some lovely goodies.
The optional theme is 'Let it Snow' so I thought a few snowflakes may be in order.
Looking again at the sketch I see that I've changed the jaunty layer into a ribbon, I hope I'll be forgiven.
I hope you'll find time to pop over to the challenge blog, take a look at the gorgeous offerings form the DT, check out our winners and Top 3 from last time and maybe join in with us for this challenge (especially if, like me, you need encouragement to make some xmas cards)

My card was made, yet again, in CAP2 where I'm still enjoying playing with scrapping and card making.
