Anything goes Christmas over at Winter Wonderland

Morning and hello! I am back once more this week and now it's time for a new Christmas creation. We are celebrating our former team leader and owner of our challenge blog Eileen who sadly passed away last year. This one is for you Eileen!

One lucky winner is getting a giftvoucher worth $10. How nice isn't that for a prize?


My card then. I wasn't really in the function when making this card so I used the pre coloured version of Hanging Kitty. A sweet image that will suite my youngest niece perfect when Christmas comes. I paired the lovely image together with a happy paper pad from Dove Craft I think. I am sorry but no name, again. ;) It has happy coloures in pink, green, blue, brown etc.

For decorations did I use a few small, lovely green buttons, some dark red pearls and a lovely black spotted ribbon with a bow. Nice and easy this time.

Anyway, I hope you come and join us in our celebrations of Eileen and that you will enjoy making any kind of Christmas project you feel like!

Love n hugs

Decorate it!

Morning and hello! Welcome back to my blog corner. It is a bit dull at the moment but I hope to get my life together in the near future. It is a little bit too much of everything at the moment and a game of catching up after being sick for two weeks.

But now to the second card of the day. We have a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter today and our theme is "Decorate it". That means it should be a really easy challenge as we don't expect you to go over board with anything. Just a normal decorating.


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

For my card have I used the really pretty pre coloured image of Josephine. I don't have the energy or the joints to colour at the moment. But it's always nice to show off Veronicas lovely work as well. She really is a master of digital colouring. Wish I had the time and energy to learn that as well.


NitWit collection just had a new digital paper set out called Farmhouse and it's totally amazing. I love every single piece of it. And it is a perfect match to this image. I am pretty sure you will see me use quite alot of this set in the future as soon as I have bought some more ink. LoL

I have done a classic decoration to be me. Used a bunch of flowers from my stash, pearls, metal corners and some lace to that. And to top it all of some glitter stickles as well.

Ok then, this is all from me for today. I will be back later on this week but for now take care and do something that makes you happy.

Do come and join us over at the Paper Shelter!

Anything Christmas or the theme of reindeers over at TMCC

Early Morning and hello! Hope you're doing fine and ready for a new Christmas Challenge over The Merry Christmas Challenge. I know it might feel a bit strange to make Christmas cards now when the spring is on the way. But you will be happy when the celebrations are here in December. LoL

This time we have our normal theme of Anything Christmas or if you want to challenge yourself a bit you use a reindeer or two on your creation. And for once have I manage to follow the extra theme of the week.

I have used an old stamp of mine that I can't remember the name or the brand off. Sorry about that. I have used my embossing powders again. I have not used them in a long time and while I had all the stuff out the other day I decided to make a few more embossed cards. I tried a few different colours and the same design. These will be good to send to friends all over the world. They won't be that expensive to send in the mail. LoL


I have used some black embossing powder for this version. I have also used some left overs from golden cardstock and some left over striped red and craft paper. The image is stamped and embossed on craft cardstock. There is some golden colour shine added, some black and white twine and a reindeer charm from my stash.

Anyway, I hope you will come and join us over at the Merry Christmas Challenge. Just make a Christmas card with any Christmas theme or with a reindeer or two on it.

Take care and do something that makes your day a happy one!

With love and hugs
Marie

Add an embellishment over at PFP

Morning and hello! How are you? Hope you have had a good start of the week? I am still struggling with the "left overs" from the flu the last few weeks. Still really tired and lacking energy. But from now it can only get better, right?

Our theme of the week over at Passion for Promarkers is to "add an embellishment". And before I forget it is my theme enamel dots. And I am affraid I used tons of them. Happy pick me up colours!

Sponsoring our challenge is Digi Stamp Boutique. The prize is £10. That is for one happy winner of our challenge! Really nice isn't it?

As a side effect of the cold has my joints taking a bit of a hit so my colouring isn't going to that well. So I have taken the easy way out and used my aqua markers again. I use them too seldom but now two challenges in a row. I needed something to pick me up and this ended up like something that I would do in an art journal, if I had the time to do that kind of craft. LoL wish that I wasn't that tired all the time so I would have the energy to do more of the art and crafts. Well, I have to be happy with what I have the energy to do.


The image and sentiment is from Sheena Douglas I think. I decided to use some golden embossing powder instead of the normal stamping technic. It looks really glittery and luxurious, just what I needed to pick me up. I did some "wild" doodling as well, just like and impression of flying butterflies. To add some dreamy feeling have I used clusters of enamel dots in different colours. The ones I have used has some glitter details to them. I have also used some golder colour shine. It's not showing that well here but it's really sparkling and nice.

Well then, I hope you like my a bit different card for the week. I do hope that you will come and join our fun challenge of the week. The theme is "Add an embellishment". The only thing you have to do is to use your Winsor & Newton or Letraset markers of any kind.

Love n hugs

Box it up over at Winter Wonderland

Morning and hello and welcome to my mega late dt-post for the Winter Wonderland. I have been totally knocked out by the lovely flu together with my youngest. Hopefully we are now out of this horrible period with winter illnesses.

Today do we have a lovely winter day and it feels more like Christmas today than it did when the big celebrations took place. We have around -7 degrees and snow. We'll how many days that will last. :)


Anyway as I play catch up here I better get to my card for this challenge. We have the lovely  Sasayaki Glitter sponsoring us this week and the design team have used images from the sponsor. The prize is one digi for the winner of the challenge. Thank you so much!

I have coloured the lovely image called Christmas Penguins with copic markers. I have a small collection of those as well as my Winsor/Newton markers which is my go to markers. Anyway, coloured away and used tons of colours, and bright they are as well.


And since my image is colourful there is also colourful designer papers. I have had those for ages and the pad is a never ending pad. Tons of paper and lots of colours. I think it's from DoveCraft but the front is lost. I did some doodling and a piece of lace to decorate the card. Nice and easy.

Anyway, hope you like this happy card suiting for a kid I think.

Love n hugs
Marie
