Glam and Glitz Christmas Card

I have a card to share with you today that fits in perfectly with the current "Glam and Glitz" challenge at Squiggle stamps which you can read all about Here. We are looking for lots of glitter and shine and this is just perfect for Christmas cards. I have added lots of stickles to the image, there is glitter on some of the DP and to top it off I have also added a glitter brad in the centre of the flower along with some pretty beaded trim.

The image that have used is Snow Pals which is available Here in rubber and Here in digi format. The sketch that I have followed is the one this week at The Sweet Stop.

I do hope that you manage to play along with us with this Squiggle Stamps challenge

A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #162 - Birthdays

We have a new challenge for you today at A Spoon Full of Sugar and this time around we are looking for Birthday cards. We are slowing down a bit over the summer holiday time and this challenge will be running until Monday 29th August with a new one starting on 30th August and then back to our weekly slot on Tuesday 6th September.

For my card I have used one of the cute new stamps from Sugar Nellie and I think that she is really cute, a bit bigger stamp than I ahd expected it to be and perhaps a bigger card would have been better but cute nevertheless I think. The sketch is the current one at The Sweet Stop.

I hope that you have fun with this challenge.

Squiggle Stamps Pink and Black challenge

Well here we are, another Monday morning and thanks to the terrible rain that we had here yesterday, another day of chaos on the travel front what with cancelled and late running trains. It appears that this is the norm now whenever we have a bit of rain! Nevermind, I am now at work, don't know what will happen later in the day and whether there will be a train home or not, but no point in worrying about it at the moment.

We have another challenge up and running here at Squiggle stamps and we also have a new release of the gorgeous Goth Kidz images which are now available Here and these are just too cute for words.

I have used the adorable Hippie Goth Girl image on my card here and followed the theme of the New Black and Pink challenge which you can read all about Here. I have also added a piece of lace which is the optional extra on the challenge. The sketch that I have followed is the current one at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and the papers are all by Nitwit designs.

I do hope that you get some time to join in with the challenge - please just remember that we need to see a Squiggle stamps image somewhere on your card, but there are lots and lots of gorgeous images to chooses from in the shop Here and you still have almost 2 weeks to get your entries in.

Have a great week.

It is so good to be started on Christmas cards already and this year I AM going to make sure that I am not rushing at the last minute in the way that I always do!!! - we'll see!!
