Last week as a GD...

Well it is my last week as a guest designer for ABC Christmas challenge . I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and will continue to join in. I then will at least have some Christmas cards at hand.
This week was E for Elf with the added challenge of using green and red.
Here is the card I made called Ooops using a digi stamp I bought from squigglefly and coloured with copics. I love this image.

Bo Bunny and cosmo cricket papers
Digi Image - squigglefly
Glamour dust (on baubles) as well as crackle glaze.

I bought this stamp by Mo Manning this weekend from my local craft store Hobby House (along with a few other little bits/essentials)
I coloured it with distress inks and after a long time using them have fallen in love with them again .
I am entering this into the Friday Sketchers challenge.

Circle girls

I feel that I have a new obsession with digi stamps. I made this card using a digi image from Lilly Boos Boutique called Circle girls.
I coloured it with copics added stickles for a little sparkle. I have a habit of cutting of the edge of paper which tells you the name and make of it so am unable to tell you the name of the lightest coloured patterned paper, the other I know is from Bo Bunny.
Not sure I like this card..................

I just love making baby cards. I used a Mo Manning digital image which I coloured with copics. The nappy I gave a layering of stardust stickles. I cut the card on my cricut and covered it in Bo Bunny paper.
The image is layered onto a hand cut corregated card heart which I machine stitched the edge. To finish off I addedd a rub on which says Munchkin.

Paper - Bo Bunny
Image - Mo Manning
Medium - copics
Tools - Cricut, sewing machine
Extras - stickles, stardust
rub on - miscellaneous

D for Decorations...with an added extra of ribbon

Following winning the ABC Christmas Challenge, B for Bells,  (Yahey )I was asked to be a guest designer for D and E challenges.
Here is my card (sorry for the poor quality of the picture but the light around here has been rubbish) for the D for Decorations challenge  which for an extra challenge  asked for  ribbon.

I mounted the digital image by Mo Manning which is coloured with Prisma pencils onto corregated card. I machined around the edges, added beads to the tree and lots of glimmer mist, and stickles , which you can't really see. I covered the cardboard Joy  with more stickles then added ribbon.
