Digi Choosday Birthday

It's birthday week at Digi Choosday so I've made this card to join in with the celebrations.  I've used another of the Octavia images from the lovely Nikky Hall over at Polkadoodles.
The backing paper is from the Winston Collection which is another winner for me, go look for him here not only can you buy a cd, you can buy the download of the cd or if you're not feeling flush you can purchase the individual images to get you started.

Christmas Fun with Polkadoodles

Hello everyone and look what Polkadoodles are doing this week - it's Christmas Fun!
I used my Silhouette to cut out the cracker box from some red card. I then cut out the panels with a backing paper from the Festive Hollybobs which is part of the fabulous Work and Play collection. The embellishments are all from the cd. the ones I used are pre coloured but you will find the digi's too so you can do them yourself if you love to colour.

Please come over and join us and see what the fantastic design team have made for your inspiration.

Tatty Twinkle fast asleep

I've got quite a few birthday cards to do for the next couple of months so have used another of the Tatty Twinkle stamps I purchased recently. For this card I used a paper printed from the My Craft Studio Tatty Twinkle cd, and several die cuts, these were all cut in white and coloured with a Copic pen, even the ribbon which was white to start with was coloured with the same colour pen.
This is a 7.25 inch easel card and the image is coloured with a mixture of Copic and Graph'it pens, I stamped the image with a Memento ink in Espresso Truffle as I thought the black may be a bit harsh for such a sweet image.

I'm entering this into the following challenges;
Sister Act - anything goes
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - Anything goes with pink
Kit and Clowder - Anything Goes

Silhouettes at CD Sunday

Over at CD Sunday this time Carol has asked that we use a silhouette, as I haven't really made many Christmas cards yet I decided to use this challenge to get one made.
I printed out the backing paper and sentiments from the Polkadoodles Festive Hollybobs which seems to be very popular this year as I've seen it around quite a few blogs, I then covered it with a strip of spiders web.

I used a Spellbinder die for the mat and cut the image from my Portrait machine. A quick and easy card to do which is what we want for the ton we have to do at this time of year.

I am entering this into the following;
Kitty Bee Designs- Stamps or punches
Crafty Catz - Black and one other colour
Alphabet Challenge - R for round or rectangle.
