Tis the season!

Hi Everyone,

It's that time of year when we have to start thinking about Christmas cards. I got a few done with the Christmas in July challenges but I have so many more to do. I am entering this card into 4 challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Sparkly & Bright

ABC Challenge - G is for glitter

Mo's Digital Challenge - Pick a Season

Totally Papercrafts - Bling it on.

The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and coloured with Lyra Aquacolour. The paper is Kaisercraft 'Season's Greetings'. I used an EK border punch and the snowflakes were cut with Cricut, Accent Essential cartridge. I have added glitter to the ends of the snowflakes and put a Kaiser rhinestone in the centre of both. The sentiment is a Making Memories rub on.

Thanks for looking, till next time

Think Pink

Hi everyone,

Todays card is dedicated to everyone that has been touched by breast cancer. As a survivor myself I know the trauma that not only the sufferers go through but also the family and friends. Lets all work together to rid the world of this disease.

I am entering the card into the Cuttlebug Spot challenge.

It is a simple card but I hope the message comes across loud and clear. The bird and birdcage were cut with Cricut, Serenade cartridge. I embossed the birdcage with Cuttlebug, Forest Branches. The words are from a Technique Tuesday stamp set, the rhinestones are from Kaisercraft and everything else is from my stash.

Until next time
