Tuesday 5 December 2023


 It is the start of the last 2023 challenge at Path of Positivity.  The optional twist this month is Inspired by Music.  For my inspiration piece for the start of the month, I was inspired by band/orchestra music.

I have used a digital paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.  The first two images are from Digi Darla and the third is from Digi Stamps 4 Joy.  The sentiment is from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.

For Santa

We are at the start of the first Anything Goes Challenge for December 2023 at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.  For this challenge, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter

I have used an image from The Paper Shelter called For Santa.

I also used a paper from a Kaisercraft paper pad.  Colouring is with copic markers.

Red Cardinal

 This is my final post for today.  I will probably have more tomorrow as I have the Gecko Galz ones to complete as well as the Progressive Challenge at The Outlawz (should have that image tomorrow).   I also need to finish my bunting that I started today.

After that, it will be concentrating on preparations for Christmas and posting Christmas cards, etc.

Bunting Tags

 Throughout November, Rach and Bella Crafts had a 2023 Christmas Craft-Off Collaboration.  I haven't watched many of the videos (I've watched two), but this one appealed to me.  I have only started it today and still have 22 of the tags to finish.  I wanted to document today's efforts though.

The idea is that it is an advent calendar with a twist.  At the end of each day in December, you remove the tag for that day and write on the back what you are grateful for that day.

This is the first three showing three of the shapes.  There are also circle and heart ones but I don't have any of those completed yet.

I followed this video by WW Designs and used papers from Antonio Makes

The pegs on the tags are temporary - I have different packs of six (that don't match) so I need to go to the shops to get enough matching ones.  I doubt whether I'll find ones to match these ones as I have had them for a long time.

Snow Much Fun

 I don't know that I have used this fun image before.  I'm rectifying that now!

Sweet Scraps

 I'm down to about 4 more posts to do.  I had doing some of them earlier in the day but it was hotter near the computer so I waited until it cooled a little .

Joy To The World

 After working out the fun fold that I was doing for Beccy's December Challenge and part through completing it, I saw that Beccy is sponsoring the challenge at Cheerful Sketches.  As I was too far through the first card, I decided to make an additional card with a different image from Beccy's Place

This card uses a digital paper from Beccy's Place that I printed out and then didn't end up using.  I also added an embossed piece with the sentiment on it as well as two scrap papers from November cards.

This is the sketch from Cheerful Sketches:
