Going CAS at CRAFTY CATZ

Good day to you all are you ready for another challenge we had a wonderful turn out last week at CRAFTY CATZ
This week it is the lovely Jac turn to pick our theme and she liked things CLEAN & SIMPLE so that should be easy i told my self. Lol. So no fussy or very little embellishments the simpler the better.
We have to wonderful sponsors this week who kindly allowed the team to use some of there images. 
they are
with a prize of 3 digi images from there store

and 

with a $10 gift voucher to there store
Told you they where great before you head on over to see what the fab team has produced and some really treated us to a card from each sponsor. Let me share mine.
I just love Make it Crafty images so jumped at one of the New  images from the recent release.
Oh I am sure this image is seen in many a house with grown men and there toys. This is so like my son the expression of concentration I know I have to ask questions more than once to get an answer.
Well I have used my promarkers and shaded the background with distressed  and chalks. The sentiment is from TLC just love this and is so my son think he might get this one or my younger brother. The Best wishes is a material sentiment i have had for years. DP is first edition and some Basic Grey. I do think that CAS lends its self to the males in our life.
Well hoe that you come and join us I am looking forward to see what you make and as they say you have to be in it to win it.
Thanks for popping by and have a wonderful weekend. You can now hop over and checkout the rest of the teams creations.

Christmas at Craft Challenge & DT Call

Good evening are you enjoying the late summer sunshine I have all my washing done and it is so nice to still be able to walk the dog in the sunshine without a coat. Although the mornings are a little cold but I wll take that gladly if it stays like this al little longer.
Well we have another challenge for you at CRAFT and this week it is our Christmas challenge,
So dig out those Christmas goodies and come and join us we have some amazing prizes from the following sponsors
  Flonzcraft 

So onto my card which I have used a fab set of stamps from Pickled Potpourri called Sweet Nativity
I have used a stepper card to place Mary & Joseph behind the fence. Here is a side view 
All images have been coloured with promarkers. The background has been done with inks and stamping my trees from Inkylicious. The sentiment Joy and Star has been gold embossed. I have added some fluffy stuff on the sheep and the fence is from Crafty Sentiments. All images have been fussy cut and glued onto the card.
Not too sure if this has come out as I would have liked and took me a while. Think I will keep this one for my sons girl friends little boy.
Well I hope you like and if you havent started your christmas cards then this would be a great way of starting the preparation you know it wont be long before it is on us.
