Crafty Catz Dt Call challenge 10

Well this week at Crafty Catz we have the theme of Angels and Fairies. Well with Christmas round the corner I am sure we can all find a Angel to join the challenge. This is also the second part of the Dt call and to be considered you have to have entered last weeks and this. So here is my second entry. Massive apology for the picture with winter and the rain just cant get the light to show this stunning paper the sheen and the patterns in it. Just love this paper and i have it in a few colours it is the sort that you hate to cut and love to stroke.

Image is by Mo at Digitalpenciltoo. Coloured with promarkers. Flowers hand made given to me as a birthday present with the sentiment which i believe is a Stampin Up. Wings have prisma ultra fine glitter on. Card has Satin Siver mirri Card framing the front and the layers and the backing nestie. I picked this satin at go with the sheen on the duck egg papers which came from Create and Craft. Finished with a white satin ribbon. The base layer has the CCS Big book paper in the buttons and the sentiment papers. This has been made for a friends birthday( Alex) for next week and just hope it is up to some way near her standard. Really enjoying making these easel cards think they really do have the wow factor.

Manga Boy's Stocking

Well this is a image i was kindly given to play with by a good friend gosh what would we do without friends. Really enjoyed colouring this and think i will give to my nephew as his fave colours are blue and red. The layout is from I Play the Sugar bowl and they had a added theme of Zig Zag. Well had some zig zag ribbon so used this have turned the sketch round so the ribbon went from top to bottom. Papers are dove craft and the image is coloured with my promarkers hoping Santa brings me some more colours. Added a few little toppers of canes and a little bag with a ginger man on.

Hope you like this and thanks for popping by.

Kerry Jo snowball at the ready

This is a image from last years Kerry Jo Christmas set love Kerry's stamps nice change from the cutie stamps. Have combined this with 2 challenges decided to go with browns and greens for this. The layout is from the challenge blog Sketch and stash and The Pink Elephant Challenge blog would love to see some Plaid and brads but no ribbon. Had these gold brads that reminded me of snowflakes to thought that they would be ok for this. Papers are from last year too. Credit crush Christmas cards. Lol I will put a sentiment on the right hand corner when i decide who is getting it.

4 challenges 1 card

Well hello how as your weekend gone. Had the nephews for a few hours today and went to Manchester for a wonder around and some lunch it rained but they didn't complain. Good job. Lol. Well i have actually managed to combine a few challenges with this one which i am didn't think i would be able to but found these papers in my stash so was able to do the layout and colour themes. Image is a stampavie stamp and although isn't Christmas Simon Says would like to see some love so adding the mistletoe think it works. Layout is from Truly Scrumptious and the colour theme is Colour Create Green, Red and White. Swirl is hand drawn with a quickie pen and glittered as Truly wanted a Sparkly Flourish. Stampavie challenge#17 would like you to create a scene. Well hope this fits their challenge
