CCAYR July Challenge -Christmas Freddie

It's challenge time once again over at Christmas Cards All Year 'Round, and finally I found some time to actually participate with a card.

Our sponsor this month is Chi Chi memories . They have provided us with some cute images to work with this month. You can purchase these images and others over on their web shop.

Here is my card:


As always I was pressed for time so I quickly digitally coloured the image then fussy and assembled it on the card with a die-cut, ribbon, pearls and some patterned paper from my stash.

Do head over to CCAYR and check out the rest of the creations from the design team.

Jingle All The Way

Hello everyone, it's been awhile but I thought I would finish up the year with a card for our challenges over at Christmas Cards All Year Round.  Ok I know it is only the 1st of December but given my track record for the year and the fact that I'm off overseas in a week this is probably my final card for 2013.
I have however made an early New Year's resolution to take one day a week for myself next year and create at least one card.  Fingers crossed it all goes to plan. 

This was a pretty simple card.  I've cut the stocking from felt. The background die is a Spellbinder one- A2 Filigree.  The cardstock and patterned paper is Bazzill and the verse stamp is from Sunshine Designs.

Head over to CCAYR and check out all the other lovely samples from the DT.

I'm Back

Well it certainly has been a long time since I last posted.  I've been very busy and haven't had much time to craft for myself.  I have been doing the odd project mostly for the magazines but nothing that I have been able to share with you here.

The last project I did for myself was a card for my mum who celebrated her 90th birthday in January.  I went to CHA in Anaheim so was lucky enough to be able to get away from work and fly up to Canada to spend her birthday with her.

Here is the card I made:

You can check out the details over on the DownUnder Inspirations blog.

I'm doing a little bit of cardmaking today so hopefully I will be back with another post shortly.

Pink & Aqua Birthday Card

Here is my latest card for DownUnder Direct.  I finally managed to get the Bitty Blossoms die and I must say I'm loving making flowers using it.  They are so easy and very effective.

CCAYR Mid Month Inspiration

Here are a couple of cards I made for mid month inspiration over at Christmas Cards All Year 'Round.
Our  challenge theme is to use a traditional Christmas image with non traditional colours or traditional colours and a non traditional image.

For the first card I've used Wreath Sketch from The Artful Stamper

Not sure what this second image is called but it is from Stamp It.

Head over to CCAYR to see what the other DT members have come up with.
