More Snow..and more Challenges!!!!!

Hi Guys..I hope you're all keeping nice and warm... we've had more snow overnight here in Kent...cant go anywhere..too cold and I've been crafting...I found loads of challenges to get the old mojo working...

This is my entry for this week's Allsorts Challenge..they have a fab sketch to follow and I chose a 'Peach & Pewter' colour combo and used my new Martha Stewart border punch. The DP is by Paper Cellar..I do like plaid paper!!..had to colour a darling Tilda for this... and I'm quite pleased how it all turned out!!! go and check out the DT cards..they are truly fab...
Now the next one... for Sugar Nellie. ..another sketch...and I coloured a cute little Manga girl for this...the DP is by Sizzix...I doodled a little faux stiching and added some craftworks card candy...

Next... for Magnolia Down you all know my love of Magnolia's Tilda so I just had to have a go at this one..They want you to use a stamp thats meant for one theme which you can use for another. I choose this cute Christmas present Tilda as I think she is great for birthday cards too as she has just a little piece of holly in her hair which you can cover with a tiny flower, like I DP is Basic Grey and I used one of my fav colour go and have a look at the lovely DT cards... and they also have a DT Call at the moment which I'm thinking about entering....

..the next card... for Truly Scrumptious...they have a fab sketch and colour combo challenge this week...Pink Green and Black...I used my cute litle ketto stamp for this..she hasnt been out much lately and I thought she would suit the K & Co DP's...I added little co ordinating punched flowers and Craftworks Card Candy....

and Finally....(phew) for FOUR used the fab sketch over at Secret Crafters Saturday Sketch..and used one of 'my fav colour combo' which happens to be the challenge over at Everybody Art Challenge...and the Quixotic Challenge is 'Hot Chocolate' which I thought summed up the colours nicely...and last but not least...the Basic Grey DP has hearts on it and I used cute pearly hearts and a Magnolia stamp with hanging I have entered it for the A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 'Hearts'...
Now I'm off for a lie at least a cup of get over this long blog....
Stay Warm and thank you for all your lovely comments...truly appreciated...and I'll be back a little later to have a hop around..checking out all your lovely creations...

  5. Oooo what a lot of lovely cards Jan and it's totally impossible to pick a favourite. I've ordered that new Martha Stewart border/lace punch that you've used on the 1st card and can't wait for it to arrive (along with other goodies of course). I think we're starting to 'thaw' out up here at the moment but who know's we could have snow again soon! Take care.
