Rainbow Lady Challenge #40 - Snowmen!

Still plodding on with my stuff for the Craft Fair and noticed the theme of "Snowmen" this week from Cynthia at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog. I had forgotten about this adorable Serendipity Cling snowman so thanks Cynthia for reminding me - he makes a very cute candle! Well this is one off the list - about 20 candles to go!

Cute Card Thursday #37 - Snowflakes

We're going all cold this week on Cute Card Thursday with the theme of "Snowflakes" - plus there is a wonderful stamp to be won from Whiff of Joy. Pop on over to the CCT blog for details and to check out the wonderful creations from the Design Team.

Poor Tilda is rather cold! I've coloured her with Promarkers and Stickles then I went a bit bonkers with the Cuttlebug embossing folders and the snowflake punch!! The sentiment is a Whispers stamp triple embossed with clear powder over Midnight Blue Brilliance ink.

Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges - Time to Decorate!

This week on Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges it's "Time to Decorate" and we have a brand new stamp - "Tilda with Presents" to give away to one lucky entrant. All we ask is that you make an ATC with the theme of Christmas decorations .. .. you could include a little tinsel or stamp a few baubles. This week you don't have to include a 'person' either - your ATC could just show a decorated tree or perhaps some Christmas candles .. .. it's up to you! We would ask that you keep it cute and if you are going to include a 'person' then you make it one of the cute round faced images. Take a look at the Design Team's creations on the blog for some inspirational ideas.

This lovely Cuddly Buddly Santa has been coloured with Promarkers and decorated with fun flock. He was holding a Christmas list but I cut this off so he can decorate this fabby Paper Artsy Squiggly Ink tree. I have used Stickles glitter glue to add some tinsel and punched out small gold circles for baubles. A punched gold border and little bell embellishment finish him off.

Don't forget to join in the fun this week and you could win that lovely new stamp!

Rainbow Lady Challenge #39 - Things with Wings & DCM - Birds

Okay I have to confess to having made this card for a very special friend some time ago but I have been keeping it for such an occasion as this - it fits two of my favourite challenges, that is Daring Cardmakers and Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog! As I have nothing else I can show you I thought I would share it now.

The stamp is by Crafty Individuals and I have stamped it onto card made using Distress Inks before adding little touches and bits and pieces to finish it off.

I hope to get some crafting done tomorrow other than making candles for the Craft Fair!


Well - I put the names in a hat and DS drew out Vicki!! Congratulations Vicki - if you e-mail me your snail mail I'll send Christmas Maggie winging her way to you.

Thanks again to Sugar Nellie for their very generous candy!

Sweet Sugar Candy!


I was lucky enough to win some candy for guessing the most popular character stamp from the wonderful Sugar Nellie - THREE gorgeous stamps! I actually don't have two of them (DH was MOST surprised!), but I did have the third one - the fabulous Christmas Maggie.

Anyway it wouldn't be right just to keep her so I would love to share my good fortune. Leave a comment on THIS post before 8pm this Monday 17th November telling me who your favourite Sugar Nellie character is and why and I will randomly draw a winner. It's as simple as that!
