Oh Holy Night

This is the best of  a bad lot of photos of my card, I usually scan my cards but on this one the gold looked black no matter what I tried. I just got the star frame and I thought it would go well with my new Holy Night stamp which unfortunately doesn't show up too well on here, also I really wanted to use a darker background but couldn't find a darker blue amongst my stacks of card stock. If I make some more of these I will make an inky background. Anyhow I was determined not to miss the 
Rudolph Challenge as I have managed to enter every month up to now.

More Flowers

Its time for a little mid month inspiration at Stamping Sensations and  the team have some fabulous cards to inspire you.  For my card I have used a very large Woodware stamp for the focal image, the little flowers are from the same set. My background is inked with Oxides and stamped with a script stamp from Cover a Card series. Hope to see you joining in our challenge but do remember we must see stamping as the main focal part of your entry. This month we are sponsored by Bee Crafty who have a lovely on line shop and there is a great prize to be won.

Its time for another challenge at Try It On Tuesday and this time its Hot Hot Hot.!  Use Hot colours, a visit to a hot country or even a hot drink. We look forward to seeing your take on this theme.
Mine is a journal page, using various ink sprays, some Inkylicious stamped vines and this very colourful parrot cut from a magazine.  The stamped and fussy cut flowers are the last few from a big batch I made ages ago, need to have another marathon stamping and cutting as they are so useful to have ready to add to a card etc.  The design team have some fab inspiration for you over on the challenge site so hope you will visit them,

Boys and Girls

Hard to believe we are round to September already, it's been such a strange year with the weather being so unpredictable, today we have had sunshine and heavy downpours and it's quite chilly too.
The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday is Boys and Girls, any age from babies to teens.  For my card I have used a pre-printed Lili Of The Valley image and coloured it with Pro markers.The wording is an old Penny Black stamp. The Teamies have some fabulous inspiration over on the challenge site to hope you will pop over and take a look

Girls Night Out

Another card with stamped images from the file, I do know this is a Stamping Bella and was my friends stamp. There were also various bits of DP with the images stamped on to paper piece the dresses so just a bit of colouring and fussy cutting, some die cut and embossed mats and another card for the pile. There are a few more of these so will make them up later.  I'd like to enter my card to

Allsorts Challenge - Feminine

Naughty cat

The other day I came across yet another file full of stamped or printed digital images so I am on a mission to try and use some of them up. I think the stamped ones are from when I have had friends here and used some of their stamps as I don't recognise them as being mine.  There were a few of this cat which I know is a Penny Black stamp as I do have another one in this series.  After I'd coloured it I couldn't find any papers to match so coloured some with distress oxides.  I'd like to enter this card into

Penny Black and More Challenge - Animals
