Silent Night

The start of the November challenge at Scribbles Designs is upon us and this time the theme is "Reindeer Games".  It is getting closer to christmas so time to be thinking about reindeer - we would love you to link up your reindeer, moose, deer, elk or caribou themed cards.


I have used an image and sentiment from Scribbles Designs and a digital paper from Scribbles Doodle Designs:
Image - Too Moose
Sentiment - Silent
Paper - Friday Free Digi Snowflake Paper



I inked the edges of the image and sentiment with a Distress Ink pad.  Colouring of Too Moose is with copic markers.  I also added a strip of white glitter ribbon and some blue gemstones.

Month Of Holiday Cards - Day Sixteen

I am up to Day 16 of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is the letter N.  Going with my goal of using an image and a card fold with the given letter, I have used images and sentiments from Nutcracker Digital Image Set and the card fold is for a Never Ending Card.

This one is a bit picture heavy as there are four different views of the card:

I used yellow cardstock for the base.  As well as the images and sentiments from Beccy's Place, I added a tree sticker and a bauble sticker.  I used a pen to add stitching lines.  Colouring of the nutcrackers is with copic markers.

Month Of Holiday Cards - Day Fifteen

I am up to Day 15 of Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards and this time the prompt is the letter M.  Going with my goal of using an image and a card fold with the given letter, I have used a mistletoe image from Tied Up With String Digital Stamps and a Magic Window Card Fold.

I ran into a couple of problems with this one.  My low tack tape wasn't low tack enough and took some of the paper with it so I added a sentiment to the top of the card to cover the rip in the paper.  I also had some construction problems but sorted them in the end.

This one needs two photos:



and with the tag pulled:

Merry Christmas To You

It is midway through the month of November already!   That means it is time for some midway inspiration for the card challenge at the 12 Months Of Christmas challenge.  As a reminder, this month the challenge is sponsored by Limited Runs and has an optional theme of All Tied Up For Christmas.



I have used an image from Limited Runs called Winter Fox.  The sentiment is also from Limited Runs.


I also used two digital papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles - the green glitter one in the background as well as the Christmas tree one on the tag. I used some patterned gold cardstock for the pocket.  I used ribbon across the pocket and some twine on the tag.  Colouring is with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.
