Christmas Wishes

 This week at CHNC, the optional twist is Use A Sentiment.  I had this big sentiment that I had stamped some time ago that was perfect to use.


I have used a digital paper from Lozzy.  The image is from Create with TLC and the sentiment is a rubber or clear stamp.  The sentiment was in my Awaiting Crafting box so I'm not sure of the brand of the stamp.  Colouring is with copic markers.

Thank You

Once again, I think I followed every element of the wheel at Butterfly Challenge.  I may not have got the colours quite right but I did the best match I could.  I have seen this card al

I have used a digital paper from Lozzy.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.  I used tan coloured cardstock for the base.  The butterflies are stickers - I had two sheets of the same stickers so I was able to match the butterflies.  Colouring is with copic markers.

I followed the tutorial from Butterfly Challenge.

Tricorn Cupcakes

This month's image for the Monthly Challenge at Beccy's Place came with a digital paper - so of course I used both.  The twist this time is to create a Fancy Fold Card.  I still have some fancy folds bookmarked that I ran out of time in November to attempt so this was a great twist for me.

My life is really hectic at the moment but I really wanted to try and complete all the January Challenges at Gecko Galz.  I need the sense of accomplishment that completing them gives me.  I'm not sure that February will be much better than January either.  This is the first of them (I hope to get most of them uploaded tonight):

 I am really off to a bad start for 2022.  For most of last year, I managed to get my progressive challenge cards completed by mid-month.  First month of this year and I'm within three days of the end of the month.

I Only Have Eyes For You

We are at the start of the first Anything Goes Challenge for 2022 at Jan's Digi Stamps.  For the month of January, there are also some stamp sets on sale.

I have used one of the new sets for January, which is called Only Have Eyes For You.


I also used a digital paper from Lozzy.  Colouring is with copic markers.

I am fairly certain I followed a fun fold tutorial for this card but now can't remember what it is called or whose tutorial that I followed so I can include the link.  I will continue looking through the You Tube tutorials that I have saved and add the link if I can find it.

I finally found the link to the Tutorial that I followed for an Angled Gatefold Card.  The tutorial is by Stamp with Lorraine.

Happy Holidays

 We are at the reveal of the cards sent during December for Card Chain Challenge.  I sent my card to Gundi in Germany.



This time we had a Tic Tac Toe:


I followed the left hand column.  I originally started following a different line so I also have fancy fold.

I used paper from a paper pad that I have had for many years which I only tend to pull out when I create fancy fold cards as the pad is 12 x 12 and usually not close at hand.  The gold is glitter cardstock.  The image is from Delicious Doodles and the sentiment is from Create with TLC.  I added brads to the centres of the snowflakes in the image.  

I received this card from Hilary.


I received the card a couple of days ago but life has been a bit hectic and I haven't let her know that it has arrived so I need to do that now!

I have used an image from All Dressed Up called Amore.


I also used some wide washi tape for the background.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I added some Wink of Stella to the heart in the image and some glitter heart stickers to the background.
