CD Sunday Challenge - # 51 Anything goes


Hi,

Our first challenge of the new year,  as usual it is anything goes and we hope to see you all again this year with your gorgeous designs.  This fortnight the challenge is hosted by Wynn.

For my card,  I used an image from Hunkydory Plain sailing mini booklet,  and I used a backing paper from Chick Print and go CD from My Craft Studio. I added a another top layer on the card of the bottle and sailing boat,  I matted the image onto blue holographic card,  finished it off with a white ribbon down the side and corner peel offs.  I do recommend this mini booklet from Hunkydory there are some beautiful designs in it and perfect for male cards.

Selection of christmas cards




Hi,

I could not show these card before  christmas,  I wanted to wait until they had been received,  so hopefully now they have all arrived.

They are all the same,  different shades of blue,  the paper was from stash and I cannot remember who they are from but they were perfect for these cards,  I am showing a couple I actually made half a dozen of these.    I used the snowflake die by Chloe and cut the snowflake die cuts to fit around the edge of the card,  the same blue paper as the back of the angel  and cut an oval in the card placing  and hang the christmas angel die by tonic in the middle.

I was really pleased with these cards,  it took time cutting the dies and angels  so I hope they liked their cards.

The last Christmas card

Hi,

As always my last Christmas card I make is to Vernon so this year was no exception,  it’s been a hard year for everyone one way and another,  one minute pass midnight on Boxing Day we enter trier three which is vitally a lockdown.   This virus has not finished with UK,  now we have a new piece of the virus to contend with and it’s spending very fast throughout the country.  We will only be going to collect our shopping from now on,  until things improve.

Back to Vernon's card I found this lovely image on Magical Christmas Moments CD but cupcake crafting,  i matted the image on blue holographic card, use a sheet of backing paper that went with the image and made a blue poinsettia with Debbi Moore’s poinsettia dies,   Added silver ribbon down the sides of the card and finished off with silver happy Christmas etc.

I hope you are enjoying your Christmas where ever you all,  we are together at home on our own.

Tatting advent calendar


 Hi


I promise to post more of the tatting advent calendar that is going on in Facebook,  well I am behind no surprise there,  my flowers are red  or white or even red and white.  I have changed the colour of the basket to gold,  so I have to redo a couple of pieces.  

In the picture are day,  8,9,10,11,12.15 and 18,  I still have the leaves and as few large flowers to make but are having such dull dark days that the red has been hard to tat.

I a, using Lizbeth thread no 20.  Christmas red,  gold and white.   I have brought the material to sew it onto so when it’s all finished I can hopefully sew it over Christmas. (If I can catch up that is perhaps we better say new year )
