Just going to make it before both these challenges change for another week ! Definitely got to get out of this "Last Minute" thing I have at the moment. Have to say, do have a valid excuse with family illness but that won't always be the case !
My first challenge card is for Inspiration Card sketches
Now had to really think about this sketch because wasn't sure if I actually liked the layout and couldn't see it working for my style. However whilst making a Christmas card for . . . . can't tell it's a secret . . . I realised that this sketch lended itself to a snowy scene.
Papers: Funky Fairy "Dots are Distressing"
Stamps: Elzybells "Snow Landscape" & large snowflake
Gems & ribbon from stash
I have used Elzybells "Snow Landscape" stamp coloured with my Promarkers & have to say loving that Prussian Blue sky ! ! The snowflake stamp is also from Elzybells which I have stamped onto the background paper, then stamped onto a scalloped circle & finally onto a circle: as a finishing touch, I have a lplaced ittle pearl gem in the middle. These are all layered on top of each other to give me the 6 panels. Finally finished the card with my ribbon thingy . . . basically little bits of ribbon tied into a knot!
Do you know that this is my first Christmas card of 2009 !
My 2nd challenge card is for Funky Fairy's and their theme this week is "Girly".
Papers: Funky Fairy "lil Bit of Happy"
Stamp: Greeting Farm "Miss Anya"
Brads from stash
Lattice frame designed by hubby !
I have used a Miss Anya stamp coloured with Promarkers. The lattice frame was designed by hubby & cut on the Craft Robo. All the papers used are from Funky Fairy's NEW "Lil Bit of Happy" kit . . . these are so much fun to work with. The flourish shape (?) is also from the same kit, cut in half and secured with 2 huge brads !
Anyhow, off to clear up my mess and I have some exciting news to share with you all but you will have to pop back on Tuesday because I can tell you all then ! ! !
Have a great week everybody . . . I will as have now definitely got out of "school mode".
