December Reminder for Besties International.

Hello there,
Thanks for stopping by today, it's the 15th so it is reminder time for the Besties International challenge we are still thinking Christmas/Winter. So keep sharing your cards and projects with us, we LOVE to see them.

Here is my card for today, it uses the beautiful Img 207 from the Fluffies Collection.

I have made this 6x6 card from Kraft cardstock. I first inked the edges of this Kaisercraft paper with Fired Brick by Tim Holtz then added it to the front. I then cut 2 mats from green cardstock and added a fabric looking paper to them. I offset the larger one then added a fancy boarder which I had inked. The cluster of poinsettias were added to the left along with some sprigs. I added a fancy corner to the top and a little flower head too.
The beautiful Fluffie image was coloured in with Promarker pens and then cut out, I added her using foam pads, but in the middle I added 2 layers to make her more rounded. To finish off I added copious amounts of gems and a lovely sentiment off a Kaiser paper.

Thanks for stopping by today, please leave a word or two so I know you have been. Don't forget to link up your own creation as you may win a wonderful image or two.

Cuddling Santa

I'd like to share with you today a new card I have made for an order. This card uses a Sherri Baldy image called Winter Santa  and it can be purchased here at the

This card is a large 7x7 bright white card blank which allows me to print the image quite large as the card is for a 2 year old so the image is key.
As I coloured in the image first I knew the papers I would be using so the bells matched the first mat of card, which was then used several more times. The ribbon I have had for sometime and it always reminds me of Christmas. The little image button was made by a lady who attends the crop I go to. She used Kaisercraft papers. The Ho,Ho,Ho die cut was given to me by my BFF Sandy (thanks honey). I have added glitter to the hats and Glossy Accents to the bells and berries. After dotting a few sequins about and gems to the snowy corner I was done.

I'd also like to enter in to the fun over at scrapbookstampsocietychallengeblog with this card.
As well as mybestiesaussiechallenge. 

Hope you like it, please leave a word if you have stopped by as its always nice to know what you think.

December Challenge at Besties International.

Hello again,

My post this time is for Besties International . As it is the 1st of the month it's time to start a new challenge and this one is for Christmas/Winter. So you can make for a holiday or another winter event. There are some great prizes to win if you come over and join in.

I have chosen to make a sweet box wrap.

We all know how hard it is to think of gifts for teachers and helpers, it can cost so much when you have a few to buy for. So this makes an inexpensive box of sweets in to a nice little gift with its addition of a seasonal wrap.
I have used Kaisercraft papers along with a Spellbinder die and a little fired brick ink. then I took the Img 943 and coloured it in using my Promarker pens. I cut it out and matted it on to red card then lifted her up using foam pads.
You could make the wraps very quickly and then take your time colouring in and add to the gift just before you hand them out.

There are plenty more wonderful images to be found over at the Sherri Baldy Etsy Shop for lots of holidays not just Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by today, please leave a comment so I know you have been by.

I am entering this project in the following challenges. mybestiesaussiechallenge.blogspot


Eclectic Ellapu December Challenge.

Hello There,
Time for another fun challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and this time it is finally Christmas!!

Well for us card makers its our busiest time of the year and most of us have been at it for months lol. The challenge is to make a Christmas Card or any other Winter Holiday.

Here is my take on this challenge

This card is a deep red 5x7 card blank, which I have matted a lovely smooth green card on to. Then I have chosen a piece of a Kaisercraft Xmas paper which as you can see has the trees and little birds dotted about. I then added a "merry" cut on my Cricut machine and a Christmas cut by a die to the top I added a couple of extra birds on foam pads and some dots of Stickle's red glitter glue. The green snowflake die in the bottom right is new to me this year as I picked it up in a sale in the summer.
I then went to my stash of Besties Images and picked out this little cutie which is Scann004-MyBesties-Christmas and coloured her in using my Promarker Pens, I lifted her up on foam pads too. If you'd like to purchase this or any other Bestie image you can get one here Scrapbook Stamp Society .
