Me 1st

 This is a goal that I will probably slip up on more often than not.  So far this year I am doing better than I have in the past of putting my needs ahead of others.  I have made a tag to remind myself of that goal



I would like to enter:

Little Scraps of Heaven - New This Year
http://lshdesigns.blogspot.com/2021/01/january-challenge-and-this-weeks-free.html

I have used a die from Memory Box to cut the two tags.  I layered them together using an eyelet.  The image on the top tag is from Little Scraps of Heaven.  Colouring is with copic markers.  The bottom tag is covered with a digital paper and then the sentiment added using some letter stickers.

Winter Friends

 This week at CHNC, our optional twist is "No Sentiment"


I have used two digital papers and an image from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.  I also added some Glossy Accents to the ornaments to give them some shine.

I have followed the sketch at Stella Says Sketch:

Ho Ho Ho

 Another card using papers, image and sentiment that have been sitting in my Awaiting Crafting boxes for some time.  I know I counted either the images or sentiments and I would have to use at least one per day to empty it by the end of this year!  Not going to happen - but at least I can try.

https://colourcrazychallenge.blogspot.com/2021/01/week-2-anything-goes-colouring.html

I have used two digital papers - I'm not sure of the source of the Ho Ho Ho one but the frosty one is from Miss Daisy.  The image is from Polka Doodles and the sentiment is from Mudmaven Designs.  Colouring is with copic markers, Wink of Stella and Kindy Glitz.  I raised the sentiment up using Mount Tape.  I also added some PeelCraft border stickers along the patterned paper joins.

Sending Buckets of Love

This is my final card following the BINGO board at Catch The Bug.  This time I followed the bottom row.  I have used an item from each of my image and sentiment Awaiting Crafting boxes.  I didn't have a suitable yellow paper so I printed one out for this card.
