Pixie Dust Studio Challenge #52 - Let it Snow

Our new challenge this week at Pixie Dust Studio is " Let it snow". Create a Christmas/Holiday card using White and non-traditional colors.

I must admit that I do prefer to go with traditional colours on my Christmas Cards, but I think that this December Pixie works really well in her blue winter coat and hat. The papers are the last bits that I have leftover from a My Minds Eye kit from last year and the sketch that I have followed is the current one at Truly Scrumptious.

Please pop on over to the challenge blog Here to read all about the challenge this week and take a peek at the gorgeous cards from the DT team this week.

Have fun.

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 133 - Christmas Card

We have a new challenge up and running for you today at
A Spoon Full of Sugar
and this time around it is a real easy one for you as we are looking for Christmas creations this week.

We have two great sponsors this week, so your chances of picking up a fab prize this week is doubled. We have Whimsy Stamps and Bunny Zoes Crafts both offering fab prizes and you can read all about this and also take a peek at the gorgeous cards from the DT this week Here

I have chosen to use some gorgeous Stampin Up papers on my card here and the image is by Bugaboo Stamps. The flowers are by prima and I have sprayed them with some Glimmer Spray just to give a little bit of sparkle to them.

I hope you all have fun with this challenge and good luck.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Good morning on yet another snowy Monday.

This past weekend certainly must have been the weekend when everyone thought about putting their Christmas Trees up - there are lots appearing in the windows where I live.

We are heading off to Las Vegas and California on Friday 17th December so my husband has decided that we will not be putting the tree up this year - Bah Humbug!! - but I have not given in yet, so perhaps there may just be a little tree elf arriving in my house this evening!

I am also getting into a bit of a panic about getting all my Christmas cards finished this week as I need to get them all posted at the beginiing of next week at the latest. This is a card that I have made using the gorgeous Tree of Joy digi stamp. This has to be one of my favourite Christmas images this year and is just so quick and easy to colour and using the digi stamp works well as you can just size it to fit into nestabilities etc. The sketch that I have used is the current one at Friday Sketchers.

Have a great week

Pixie Dust Challenge #51 - Lets Get Married

The theme this week is at Pixie Dust Studio Challenges is " Let's get Married " so a nice change from all the Christmas Cards that we have probably been making over the past few weeks.

I have used the gorgeous Forever Love from the Paradise Collection on my card here and teamed it with some K&Co papers. The sketch that I have used is the one this week at Sketch Saturday.

Please do pop on by the challenge blog Here to read all about this week's challenge and also to see what the rest of the DT have created this week.
