Here is my entry for The Sugar Bowl. They have a fab sketch by Tiets and also want you to use punches. I had this image by Leanne Ellis half coloured in, so thought I would finish her off. The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs, I think they are by Kristin Cronin-Barrow. I punched out the flowers and the circles in the centres and the sentiment is a Whimsy postmark stamp.

The challenge over at Winter Wonderland is embossing. I'm running a bit late with this one - but hopefully not too late. I quite like this card and its simple ness. I used an embossing folder from Crafts too for the tree and the papers are Pink Petticoat. I printed the Special Couple directly onto the paper then printed the Merry Christmas and cut with a nestie. Added some tartan ribbon and some stickles and rhinestones to the tree. I inked around the edges with Distress inks. I think I might just have to make a few more of these.

Over at Winter Wonderland they have a sketch for you to follow and want to see a Bunny on your card. I went with my Kraftin Kimmie Bunny and used papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs by Zoe Pearn. My Bunny is a bit too big for my oval right enough, but that's the biggest oval I had. I printed out the text and cut it out with a nestie.

I just had to enter the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl this week. You get to pick your sketch from past sketches. I decided to choose the sketch from challenge #8. I think this was my first challenge I entered - by e-mail. If not the first, close to it. I have used papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs, by Dani. Lovin' these papers at the mo. I've had them for a while, but didn't realise just how much I loved them. The Friend is also from the download. I punched a few flowers out and added some rhinestones. I bought some of these pins and wanted to see how it would look - hence stuck behind the Friend. But hey - I'm kinda liking it there.
I thought I would show you the original card. These papers are from a Chris Warner CD.

I have made this one for the challenge over at Mo's Digital challenge. They are wanting you to use pastel colours. So I made another simple one with these Papermania papers and punched a wee strip with my Martha Stewart punch. Added a bit of ribbon and 3 craftwork candies and that was me. But the photo is looking rather squint.

Yay - I'm back. But probably not for long. I'm supposed to be packing - on the move again, but decided I would have a play instead. We've still got a wee while to go, but I guess the panic will set in when I realise it will all have to be done - fast. But til then I'll have my wee play. Anyway, first up is my card for Winter Wonderland. They have a sketch and want to see Santa somewhere. Can you spot him - yeah. I thought the sketch looked a bit technical at first, but once I got going, things kinda fell into place. The papers are Pink Petticoat, the Santa is High Hopes and the Ho,Ho,Ho is Cuddly Buddly. I couldn't let the card pass without a punched snowflake, so put one in the middle square. I printed out the Merry Christmas and added some wee rhinestones.
And my second card is for the challenge over at Anyone for Anya where they too have a sketch. I have kept it pretty simple (oh OK - very simple) as I usually do with Boy cards. All the papers are Basic Grey and I added 3 wee buttons in the corner. The image is from The Greeting Farm. I was going to add some text, but thought I would leave that til I decide who it's for.
