Pollycraft Monday Challenge #72 - Chipboard

Good Monday morning - hope it's shaping up to be a good one - its very very very snowy here! Schools are shut and we can't even get out of our driveway!

This week's challenge as set by me is CHIPBOARD.

Our sponsor this week is the fantastic "The Creative Cottage" who is offering the
winner a £10 voucher for a little spending spree (sigh wish I could enter .....)!!

Anyway, here is my creation. I've used one of the new Cherry Kisses Christmas, isn's she cute? The papers are my ever favourite, Pink Petticoat Fairy Lights. My chipboard is the funky tree from Dovecraft.

So get rummaging in your stash and add some chipboard to your creations!

Get over to the Challenge blog to see the other fantastic GDT and DTs cards and I look forward to visiting your blog!

Cupcake Craft Challenge #117, The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #82 and a touch of Critter Sketch Challenge #40!!

I know, 3 posts in one day! This little creation covers 3 different challenges:

Critter Sketch Challenge #40 were looking for Texture
The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #82 was a fab sketch and
Cupcake Craft Challenge #117 wanted a "House Warming" card

This is what I came up with:

The image is from Pollycraft, the papers (GCD Rose), pin and leaf is from CES, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft and the textured panel has been created using a Cuttlebug Embossing folder. I think after all these posts I need to lie down ....................


Sketch Saturday #129

Been having some fun with some sketch challenges, and this one is for Sketch Saturday. I have rotated the sketch round as I printed my digi image a little big, lol:

I love this image - let's be honest, you always get something handknitted from an elderly relative! This is Pollycraft's "Ethan's New Jumper" combined with the papers from Pink Petticoat's Fairy Lights. Everything else was from my crafty stash. Thanks for visiting!

Friday Sketchers #128

Good afternoon! No your eyes are not deceiving you, I am entering a challenge! I've been really busy on the home front for a variety of reasons but I'm able to get crafting again!

As always I enjoyed working with the Friday Sketchers Sketch and this is what I came up with:

This little chap is Pollycraft's "Jack Snow Fun" and is one of many fantastic images available in the shop. The link in my sidebar will take you to the new look shop! The papers are Pink Petticoat's "Fairy Lights" and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. Can't remember where I got the pearl snowflakes from - I could say I painstakingly placed all the pearls individually ....................

Pollycraft Monday Challenge #70 - Glittery Christmas

Good Morning - hope everyone's looking forward to the week ahead??! It does mean its Pollycraft Monday Challenge time and this week's theme is "Glitter Christmas" - easy peasy or what? Here's my DT card using the fantastic Sonny Honeycloud Mistletoe, who has had her hood glittered:

I've gone pastelly with this one and used the lovely (and glittered!) "Let it Snow" papers by Dovecraft. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The mulberry ribbon is from Crafty Emma's Store (and I think the snowflake charm ...). Pop over to Pollycraft to see the other wonderful glittery cards from the DT team and look forward to seeing your creations! Thanks for visiting!

Pollycraft Monday Challenge #68 "It's Chill Time"

Happy Monday! Hope your week has started well. This week's challenge over at Pollycraft has been set by Emma and the theme is "It's Chill Time". Now you can interpret this in any way - it could be a wintry card or feature relaxtion - my card covers the latter:

I've used the fabulous "Ronnie" specially drawn by Paula to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service which is an organisation close to Emma's heart. He's perfect for all those male cards so if you haven't got him yet pop over to the Pollycraft shop and give him a home! The paper is Papermania's "For Him". Please check out all the other cards from my very talented DT Buddies. Thanks for visiting!
