Fa-la-la-la

I've just come back from the dentist and I'm feeling all numb around the mouth.  So, I've sat down at the laptop to write up some posts and plan some DT cards while the numbness wears off!   I wish the bill would wear off at the same speed! LOL.

This one is for my neighbour who does alot through the year to help not only me but other neighbours as well.

Creative Craft Cottage - The Most Wonderful Time Of Year
https://creativecraftcottage.blogspot.com/2018/07/challenge-109-most-wonderful-time-of.html

I have used a paper from a christmas paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Neat and Tangled and is coloured with copic markers. The Fa-la-la-la sentiment is from Folded Paper and Printed Pixels.  The name sentiment is one that I typed on the laptop in a similar font to that of the other sentiment.  I also added some organza ribbon, a button and some christmas washi tape from Sugar and Spice Studio.

Thank You

This is the third card for the Anything Goes challenge at Beccy's Place.  This one uses the challenge theme of Tic Tac Toe from the April Challenge.  I have used the rowof Flowers + 3 colours (green, yellow, pink) + pink.  Now I only have to complete the challenges from February and March.  I've left the February one at this stage to remind me that that was the point that everything got on top of me.  It will be a great sense of accomplishment when those two are completed (hopefully in August but we'll see)

Cherish Life's Simple Pleasures

This one is the card for this month's challenge.  I've got one more to upload today that is from an earlier challenge theme.

Birdhouses

I really don't like letting challenges defeat me.  I have had a bad start to this year and not had much time to myself.  It is starting to get better now so I have gone back and done a couple of challenges that I missed on Beccy's Place.  This one is the one from June.  Fortunately, each month is Anything Goes so I can enter them as I complete them!

This is the first of several posts today for the week long challenge at Catch The Bug.  This is the project that has been taking most of my time.  I wanted to get it completed before I blogged any of these.

I have repurposed a cigarello tin that my Mum found when clearing out her house in preparation for moving.  She was going to throw it out but I told her that I had a use for it.  I now need to show her why I kept it!

Create with TLC - Anything Goes
https://desiref.blogspot.com/2018/06/atg-with-create-with-tlc-challenge-no21.html

The paper and the sentiment are both from Create with TLC.  I diecut some balloons using some scrap cardstock and a Memory Box die.  I then added Kindy Glitz to them to give them some definition.  I added two self-adhesive button stickers to finish.

Christmas Joy


We ae midway through our challenge at 12 Months Of Christmas.  This month we don't have a sponsor so we got to choose an image from one of our 2018 Sponsors to showcase.


I chose to use an image from Limited Runs called Christmas Tree Light Bulb.  The sentiment is also from Limited Runs.



Nikki is in the midst of a store update so if you want the image, just write and ask her

I have also used two papers from this months paper set by Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.  Colouring is with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.

Caution

I found a perfect sentiment for this image - she just looked as though she was pushed to fit into the outfit!  And that she wasn't happy about it either!.
