There is always something to be thankful for

We are midway through the thankfulness challenge at Path Of Positivity.  This month we are sponsored by A Day For Daisies and Scribbles Designs.



I have used an image from A Day For Daisies which I think is called Almost There.  The store is currently down for maintenance so I can't check that the image name is correct.


I also used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I die-cut a treble clef from silver cardstock using a Memory Box die.  I added a digital sentiment from A Piece of Heart.

Hello

This fortnight's challenge at Incy Wincy Designs has a theme of Black and White with one colour.  I chose to use red with the black and white.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art Company.


The image that I chose to work with is Big Eye Chibi Girl from Oddball Art Company.



I also used a paper from a paper pad.  I die-cut a ribbon threader from white cardstock.  I threaded through some back grosgrain ribbon.

Make It Merry

It is raining again today - and it is cool this morning.  Although it was cool yesterday morning it did warm up during the day.  It is hard to believe that it is the middle of November with the dreary weather we are having at the moment.  From what Beccy has said, Australia seems to be having drier days than we are having over here.

On the plus side, it is good weather for working on my cards for Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards.  Todays one has two different photos:

The first shows the outside of the card:

 
 And the second shows the inner with the image and sentiment:

Glitter

This week's Anything Christmas Challenge has started at CHNC.  For this week, our optional theme is glitter.  For me, that was a good excuse to get out the glitter cardstock and the Kindy Glitz!



The sketch I followed gave me a chance to use up another of my pieces in my offcuts box.  I also used up some scraps of glitter cardstock for the pennants.  I have used an image from Bugaboo Stamps called Brats Winter Snowman.  Colouring is with copic markers, Wink Of Stella and Kindy Glitz.

I followed the sketch from Stella Says Sketch

Colouring is with copic markers.  Matting is silver cardstock.  I also added a sentiment and an anchor embellishment from an embellishment pack.

Merry Christmas From All Of Us

I'm not sure what is happening with our weather this year.  I've woken up this morning to cool temperatures.  Usually by 9am it is quite warm at this time of the year.  The sky is overcast at the moment and looks like it is going to rain - so I guess I'll be inside crafting today!

Nutcrackers and Napkin Folding

I'm still on schedule for the month at the moment, even though this was a bit more of a tricky and time consuming card fold:

 
 With the belly band removed, so the inside can be seen:
