Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Snow Sledge

Over on Craftbubble (CMLI Group) Kathy has set up a 'rudolph day challenge', this idea is Sandra's but it is being run slightly differently as in we take it in turn to hosts and will set a theme and/or a sketch.

Kathy is setting the challenge for January ' Take  lots of glitter, add a button, a stamped image and some patterned paper and simmer till a card comes out!'  You have the choice of using the theme/sketch or both.

I followed the sketch and theme but left out the button - I'm sure many other crafters have unfortunately found this out but if you send a card in the post with a button on it never arrives. Our bestest guess is that some miserable scumbag thinks there is a pound coin inside and helps themselves to it.

Anyway enough talk...here is my entry using one of the Barry Winter set from StampFairy!

Glamour Dust
Card Candi and Sentiment from Craftwork Cards
Martha Stewart Corner Punch
Papers by Papermania 'Noel' 

You probably can't make it out but some of the papers are glittered :)

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Cold and Frosty
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Lavishly Luscious Layers
Always Playing with Paper - Tic tac toe (designer paper, colour with markers, snow)

Scumbag indeed - helping themselves to our handmade cards and embellishments.

Your card is lovely, Debs, love the card candy embellishment and spotty paper


Wendy said...

Your bear is so cute! He looks like he's going really fast and is getting a bit worried about tumbling off! In the US the postage machines tear up the cards with the buttons. They're none to careful! Anyway, it's so nice of you to share with us at Merry Monday this week, Debbie! Hope to see you back soon!

Love your gorgeous cute card Debs, he's such a cuddly teddy but he does look quite scared sledging downhill so fast !! Fabulous colour combo too.

Well done on fitting your card into so many different challenges, I never seem to be able to do that !
