We were very kindly given some images to play along with from our sponsor and I have used 'Sophia' coloured her with copics and Chameleons with a touch of SN Sparkle here and there.  Silver mirriboard mat and background paper from a very old pad by DCWV (can't remember the pad name only got a few bits and pieces left!).  Teamed this up with some red cs for the diecuts and finished off with a silver peel off sentiment (haven't used one of them in a long while either! lol)

The DT were very kindly given some images to play along with.  I have made a calendar and I chose to use 'A Cuddle Makes It All Better' The background paper is glittered, the image is coloured with copics and Chameleons and then I have added SN Sparkle pens to her hair, dress and the dogs bow but unfortunately it really doesn't show up in the photo.  Added die cut branches and bunting, prima Got Flowers and finished off with a calendar block.

Crafty Catz Challenge #397 ~ Anything Goes

Ooops late again! I'm here with my post for this weeks challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week it's the turn of our wonderful teamie Nick to host and she gave the DT the additional twist that you can play along with too if you like, its Santa Claus is coming to town! Yep use a Santa on your card, nice and easy huh?.  The sponsor for this challenge is


PRIZE 3 DIGI IMAGES FROM ETSY SHOP.

Well at the moment my crafting time is extremely limited and when I was looking for inspiration I came across a tin of Vintage Christmas Stickers and thought I'd be able to rustle up a quick card.  I went with vintage for the rest of the card. The paper is from Flair Designs and I roughed up the edges then added distress inks using peeled paint, vintage photo and walnut stain. I also did the same treatment to the tag before adding the Father Christmas.  Used a little bit of ribbon for the tag and some decorative tape from Lidls (just like washi tape), a few enamel dots and finished off with a sentiment sticker from the tin.

Just before I share my card Crafty Catz are looking for a Guest Designer for JANUARY 2018 if you are interested please add GDT after your name when you enter your card into this week´s challenge. Good luck to everyone!

So there you have it my vintage card.  I actually have the whole weekend off which is just as well because after the weekend I'm working 8 days straight! So we will be having our Christmas dinner on Boxing Day!

The DT were very kindly given some images to play along with and for my card I chose One Day, which I printed directly onto some orange cs. Then I had some darker orange cs which I ran through and inked embossing folder to give another tone of orange.  I then used another embossing folder and some brown cs to get the clock faces which I then added some gilding wax (this is still a new technique to me!) both background pieces were cut using an edged blade in my Purple Cows trimmer (I had forgotten about the other blades until I went to change the trimmer to the guillotine blade! lol) I then finished off with some orange bakers twine and two little keys.
