White Only Christmas at MAWTT

Hi Everyone!

I am here this morning with my card for the new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times.  Our hostess this week is Wendy and she has challenged us to:

"White Only Christmas"

I really have trouble doing "white" cards!  I always want to add a little colour somewhere so I did struggle with this one a bit!  Anyway here is my card:




I have terrible problems taking photos of white cards so these aren't great, and the card is much whiter in real life!  I just out a piece of bazzill texture cardstock with my Lil Inker Stitched Square Die.  I then used my new La La Land dies with sparkle card stock.  The dies are Christmas Hill Border and Snowflake Banner (you will be seeing these a lot of the next few weeks!!) 

I then just added some pearls and the sentiment is from LOTV Christmas Set 75  

Please pop on over to the main challenge blog and take a look at the other gorgeous cards.  I hope you can join us this week!

Have a great day!  I have got half day's leave today and meeting mum for lunch! 

Love and Hugs

Hedgehogs at Moving Along With The Times!

Hi Everyone!

I am late this week with my card for Moving Along With The Times!  I just got confused with my days!!  Our gorgeous Janice is the hostess and her theme is:

"Hedgehogs"

When I stopped panicking I realised there are lots of gorgeous Hedgehog images around and I found an old Penny Black image that I have had for AGES!  Here is my card:




The image is called Hedgehog Bouquet and I decided to keep it simple. I really love this style and I will be doing some more simple style going forward. What do you think? 

I just layered onto Bazzill CS.  I coloured the image with copics and added some glamour dust and little flower gems.  The little butterflies are from my Tonic punch and the sentiment is Whimsy Stamps - Friendship Ticket Sentiments.

Well that's all from me!  Pop on over to the main challenge blog more some more cute little hedgehogs!!  

Have a nice evening and I will see you soon.

Love and Hugs

Polkadoodles Inspiration with the Digi Queens!

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope your weekend has started well.  I am here today to share my card for the Digi Queens over at Polkadoodles.  We have a theme this week which is Autumn/Fall/Halloween inspired makes.  

Nikky has a freebie image for your this week which you can pick up from the main blog.  I have used the the freebie combined with Witchie Goth which you can get from the Polkadoodles Store here.  




 

I coloured her and the background with copics.  I wasn't sure what to do with the background and I tried different colours and eventually decided to go with the orange and black sky to stay within my colour theme.  I used the freebie background and placed Witchie Goth in front of it and printed it as a whole image.  I think it worked well.  

I hope you like it and feel inspired to try something like it yourself!  Please pop on over to the main blog to see more gorgeous inspiration and pick up your freebie!  

Have a great day
Love and Hugs
