Pink Christmas for the Cure at the Jingle Belles.......take 4

I'm here with another Pink Christmas card for the Jingle Belles Rock challenge, this is #4 and #5 and 6 are in the works, I certainly want to keep up to last year and besides I love pink Christmas cards, I just wish I could find more Christmas paper with pink in it.  I just a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches which right at this moment only has 21 hours left so I best get on with my post.


Since I want to showcase the pink ornament and the snowflake circle so I went with a dark background and it has pink polka dots on it. The background of the ornament and the Merry Christmas are made with shaving cream background...just google it and you will find many videos. 


 The ornament is from Marianne Designs and it s set of two ornaments  and I used a left over piece of glitter paper 


Finished inside of the card.

That's it for today check back again I still have to get more Pink Christmas cards made.

It was a Dark and Spooky Night................

Be afraid, very afraid............it's another spooky Halloween card. I seem to be on a roll with Halloween.


As with another card I had a few scraps, the houses were also slated for a Christmas card but Hubby said it looked too "halloween" so into the scrap box, the background was also a scrap of ominous sky so it became a spooky card, the bats are an old....really old Halloween set from Hero Arts, it is a boxed set of 6 stamps and I've had them for at least 15 years. the houses are an unbranded die. 


Again a computer generated sentiment.

Naughty or Nice Witch?

I have been working on Halloween cards, not sure why because I only need 2 for my great grandsons but they are so much fun.  This one is a really cutesy card with an adorable Witch from Lacy sunshineI love Heather's images they are adorable.


I coloured and fussy cut the cute witch then built my card with some items in my scrap box, the light post was slated for a Christmas card, but didn't work, the grass is from an Easter project (I cut a few too many) The section of spiderweb was left over from another Halloween card, even the background was a scrap. 


Sentiment is compurter generated from a free verse site.

I am entering this in:

Naughty or Nice #44 ~~ Something Spooky
Paper Players ~~ Spooky

Crafty Gals Corner Challenges ~~ #145 Halloween colours


Well thats all for now check back again as I have one more Halloween card or maybe 2.

Shopping Our Stash #325 ~~ Walking Dead

What are the odds that I'm on two design teams that picked Zombies back to back!!! Maybe I should be buying a lottery ticket. teehee.  It was Chris's fault!!! never the less the Challenge at Shopping Our Stash is the Walking Dead in other words Zombies.  Well Google and Pinterest took another beating for an image to use and this one looks familiar as to the creator but I really don't know for sure who it is, thank you very much if it is someone you know\s art work.

The image was fussy cut and elevated on the spider web. The patterned paper is from a halloween pack I have had for a couple of years. 


not too much of a spooky image but that spider is a little terrifying 


The sentiment is from a large sentiment stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps there are 21 Halloween sentiments on the stamp which I kept intact and just cut out what I want to use. 


Finished inside with a computer generated sentiment

Thanks for stopping by today and check out the SOS crew's inspiration then dig out those ghoulish stamps and enter the challenge.

Pink Christmas for the Cure take 2!!!

My favourite challenge of the year is the Jingle Belles Pink Christmas for the Cure.  I love the theme and love making Pink Christmas cards and they are always well received when I send them.


Lots of scraps for this card, I made one earlier using the snowflake die from Hero Arts and at the Butterfly Moon in Lyndoch we have been taught how to use the negative of a die and that is what I have done here.  Another very CAS card (what is happening to me?) the glitter paper was a scrap out of my scrap box, the Merry Christmas is an Impression Obsession die. I am not fond of a lot of "white" space so I had to make a couple of corners out of the glitter paper.


I almost made it into a shaker card but I really didn't want to cover up any of the gorgeous 'glitter.  I did use a scrap of acetate to attach the snowflake to and then I added strips of foam tape for depth.


Finished the inside with an Impression Obsession Sentiment.

Thanks for joining me today for Card #2 and I still have lots of time to make more.
