Unicorn and Rainbow

Hi everyone, this is a scheduled post 'cause I'm not here at the moment - and hopefully it's all worked as planned.

This is the card I've made for my granddaughter's birthday with her favourites....... unicorns and rainbows. Her birthday's not until February but I got it made early so that I'd be able to pop it in my suitcase and leave it with her Mom for the big day....... along with some rainbow and unicorn cake moulds.



Miss Di over at Pixie's Snippets Playground challenges to use up our snippets and hopefully I'll manage to link into the challenge later as I used loads of snippets to make this.

Red and Gold

I'm here today with a christmas card using another image from Kajsansscrapblog - again coloured with Promarkers and layered using some gold and red metallic card. A similar design to my last card but with the addition of 3 red gems.



I'm heading over to the following challenges with this

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'  the gold card was leftover from an A4 sheet and the star was cut from a snippet of red card

Passion for Promarkers challenge 'use 3 of something'  3 red gems

Rudolph Days November challenge


Less than a week to go and we'll be in December. I'll be going away in a few days time so won't be around Blogland until January. I know it's a bit early but I'd like to take this chance to wish you all a 'Merry Christmas' and hope you have a wonderful festive season.

Green, Gold and White Christmas

Just flying in today with another quick christmas make while I wait for some sticky stuff to dry!

This card uses a freebie digi image from Kajsansscrapblog coloured with Promarkers, layered onto metallic green and gold card, a computer generated sentiment and three die-cut stars. It was missing something but then I had a eureka moment and added a couple of googly eyes.... job done!



I shall enter this in the following challenges

Passion for Promarkers 'use 3 of something'  - 3 stars, 3 colours

Allsorts 'CAS christmas'  3rd entry


I'm off now to see if Hubby's made me a much needed cuppa tea - after all it is my birthday today! Thanks for taking the time to pop by.

Another Quickie

Over at Allsorts challenge the theme is 'CAS christmas' which is perfect for this time of year and here's a very CAS christmas card I made in a few minutes.

The fun image was from the internet, layered onto silver card, stuck to a card base and a peel-off sentiment added to finish it off.




So that's another card done and dusted, just the granddaughter's christmas card to get started on now!

Okay, here are some cute robins from Stampendous, coloured with Promarkers, layered onto some gold card and a sentiment which I think is a LOTV stamp..... very quick..... very CAS!

Turtles

Wow, that was another week over in a flash and still I'm chasing myself around in circles wondering what day of the week it is! On the plus side I have managed to get a card made ready for my daughter's birthday and with a matching tag from the leftovers.

Distress oxides used for the background and the stamps (which were fussy cut as I don't have the matching die) were coloured with Promarkers with a good winking on the coral and Sakura clear gel pen on the turtle shells. The die is Memory Box breezy waves and I used a corner punch on the tag.



I used leftover 'snippets' of the DO background for the tag and waves so I'm skipping over to join in the fun at Pixie's Snippets Playground and as I used 'dies and punches' on the tag I'm also heading over to the challenge at Dream Valley


Thanks for popping by today and I hope you have a fun weekend

Snippets

Where has this week gone to ? I'm sure the last few days absconded whilst I was sleeping 'cause I definitely remember it being Monday and thinking I'd got all week to make my snippets card..... but now it's Friday and I'm dashing over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to join in the fun before Parsnip gets his big key out and locks the Playground gate.

The dies are all cut from snippets of card and the decoupage image is from a House Mouse cd.




Right I'd better get myself into gear and get on with my granddaughter's christmas card before next week does another disappearing trick on me! Thanks for taking the time to pop by today and I hope you all have a great weekend.

The stamp is from a Penny Black set called 'holly scroll' coloured with Promarkers and teamed up with a sentiment from another Penny Black set called 'sweetest moments'. Then after matting onto mirricard and sticking to the card blank I've another for the box. Super quick and easy!

Back again

Okay so who stole those last four weeks ? Just when I was getting into a routine jogging around Blogland again a huge pile of housework blocked the road, then I ended up making a detour and started on some christmas and other cards..... so I haven't been idle even though I've not been around

First up I've got a snippets card to show you. It's a very CAS design which is very much more my style nowadays as it's ideal for using up leftover bits and so quick and easy to make. The owls are Clearly Besotted, the branches are from MFT and the sentiment is a magazine freebie I've had in my box for several years!



This is for the following challenges ~

Pixie's Snippets Playground 'use snippets'

Alphabet 'O is for owls'

As You Like It 'clean and simple or fussy and fancy'



Next I have a christmas card using a House Mouse decoupage from the Triple CD Collection and yet another CAS design.


This is for the following challenges ~

Allsorts 'christmas'

Crafter's Castle 'anything goes with option winter/christmas'

Edited to add:
After a nudge from Annie I'm joining in with the challenge over at House Mouse & Friends 



And finally here's a quick tag I made for the challenge over at Less Is More. The penguins are a PB stamp called Antarcticans.



So that's it from me for now. Thanks for popping by and I promise to catch up with you soon
