A couple MORE Christmas cards....

I just wanted to share a couple more cards this week, which don't fit into any challenges or Design Team requirements!! I've just been busy!!

This first card is an Incy Wincy Designs image, which I totally love!!!! I coloured it with copics, sponged the sky and added crystal effects to the doors. The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set. You can get this image HERE!!! They are only $2......such a bargain! AND you get it right away!!!!

This second card is an image I had in my stash for a few months, I think from some Blog Candy I won - but I have no idea what company makes her, but she is GORGEOUS!! So pretty & so fun to colour!!! If anyone knows her "maker", let me know so I can give proper credit & "own" her!!! This card is a 6x6 and she was coloured with Koh-i-noor pencils and Baby Oil Gel! Stickles were added to her wings, and a Spica pen used for the dots around her & her wand.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to enter my blog candy draw!! You have until Tuesday to enter!!!!

Simon Says.... So Charming!!!

This weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is SO CHARMING!!!! All you have to do is use a charm on your card or project!!! I have used 2 camping charms (a compass & a canteen) that Heidi sent me in the summer in my goodie box.......she is so smart...she sure knows her girls!!!! I wanted to make a camping journal for some friends who also love camping. I almost wish I had kept this one for me and given them the one I made last summer!!! LOL Ahhh well!!!!

The paper is from Close to my Heart, and the images are all Magnolia - from the Pet Collection '09 - you can get all 3 stamps at Simon Says Stamp (jeep, Tilda & Edwin) - I know they are more "safari" type Magnolias, but it still works for camping (doesn't it?!?!?)

Don't forget - you can win a $25 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp by entering this challenge so head on over to the blog to check it out & to see what the rest of the Design Team has made for you!!!!

Anyway, would love to see what you create with your charms! They are becoming ever so popular & I just bought a whole bunch from Simon Says Stamp!! Also, if you enter the SSS challenge, come back on Friday to enter my Friday Freebie - easy way to win free stuff!!!!

Enjoy the rest of your week!!!

A few more Christmas cards!!

Here are some more Christmas cards that I made while I was on my retreat last month. I think I ended up making 21 that weekend...not so bad!!! It's easy to get distracted though when there are other poeple making things....and I'm so curious!!! LOL I have coloured all images with KOh-i-noor pencils & baby oil!!

This image was a freebie from Pollycraft.....what a GREAT Santa eh??

This image is a digital image from Squigglefly - called ANGELICAT....isn't she gorgeous????

This image is from Pink Cat Studio - he is called Hootie Pie- Santa
Cute eh? I cut the circle with my largest Nestabilities circle, and added liquid applique to his hat & boots!

This is a Rachelle Ann Miller design called Cuddling. I used my friends snowflake punch and her pink pearls.....seems I forgot more than I wish to admit on my weekend away!! LOL Good thing she was prepared!!!!! LOL

This is a Sugar Nellie image I've had for a longggg time!!!! Someone stamped him for me probably 2 years ago & I just never got around to colouring him!! This card is a 4x4 card.

Thanks for hanging out with me for a bit!!!! Happy blogging!!!! And have a GREAT week!!!

Incy Wincy Designs - Challenge # 20 - Christmas: RED & GREEN

This week at Incy Wincy Designs, we have set out another Christmas challenge for you: RED & GREEN!!! I know you are all working on your Christmas cards so you MUST have a red & green one somewhere!!!! I hope you will join us, we will have a GREAT prize, so head over to the challenge blog to check it out & to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you!!!

I used an Incy Wincy Design image, which was really fun to colour. I used my Koh-i-noor pencils and baby oil gel (heck of a lot cheaper than Gamsol!!) and then put Crystal Effects on top of the bells to give them gloss! I added stickles to the ribbon too, to make it sparkly!! The rest of the papers are from my stash!!

This week's challenge is sponsored by Lisa at Allissa's Paper Town - she has a great sheet of digi sentiment tickets for one lucky participant! Head over to the blog to check it out!!!

Corrosive Challenge..... Christmas - Green & Red!!

This weeks challenge at Corrosive Challenge Blog is GREEN 'N' RED for Christmas!!!! Well.....I just happen to be working like a mad woman trying to get all my Christmas cards done and out in the mail!!!! This image is from Dustin Pike & I coloured him with my Koh-i-noor pencils and BABY OIL!!! Yup, you heard me right! I usually use GAMSOL, but I ran out, and I remember hearing people talking about using Johnson's Baby Oil GEL so I thought I'd try it! It worked great, but you have to make sure you only use a tiny bit on your stump, because it will get too oily on the paper! AND it smells sooo much better than Gamsol!!!!

Go check out the other Green & Red projects over at the won't be sorry!!! LOTS of inspiration over there!!!!! Hope you can join us this week too!!!!!
