Quick Christmas

Hi to you all on this lovely sunny autumn day.  It's almost November and before we can blink christmas will be here, so for my card today I have a very quick and easy make.

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!




I'm taking this over to the following challenges ~

Country View challenge 'plant-tastic'

Allsorts challenge 'traditional christmas colours'

Crafter's Castle challenge 'anything goes + option winter/christmas'  2nd entry

Penny Black Creative Christmas challenge 'holiday theme'  2nd entry

Rudolph Days October challenge 'anything goes christmas'

Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge 'anything goes christmas + option ribbon'

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'anything goes christmas + option sentiment as focal point'

ABC Christmas challenge 'U for Upon, V for Very quick'


Okay that's all from me for today, I'm off now to do a few jobs and then a search for Mojo to help me with a few more christmas makes. Thanks for taking the time to pop by and visit.

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
