ABC CHALLENGE - O IS FOR OVAL

I was busy making this Christmas card for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law who live in the hot and sunny Bahamas when it suddenly came to me that I was using an oval shape so thought straight away by coincidence I could enter it into this challenge. I used the following:-

Stamp - Rachelle Anne Miller Christmas Collection Skating coloured with watercolour pencils.
Backing paper Sissix Bigz embossed with Sissix Christmas embosser plate and a piece from scrapbook paper called Snowy Jo from Imaginisce.
Embellishment cut out of Sissix cardstock with Sissix die Scribbles Swirls.
Ribbon - Anita's.
Flowers - Prima.
Adhesive silver gems - Papermania.
Glitterglue - Crayola.
Name sentiment - my own done on computer.

2 CHALLENGES - PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE - BUMP IN THE NIGHT & SBS18 CHALLENGE (CRAFTY CREATIONS) 24 - HALLOWEEN

Thought I could put this card into 2 challenges.  I used a Penny Black Apprentice coloured with watercolour pencils.  The backing papers I used were a free download from DIGIFREE titled Phillsboo - Trick or Treat. The black backing paper is from the Little Sizzles Cardstock Brights for Bigz cut to size.  The sentiment is part of a download from PINK PETTICOAT - Girly Curly sentiments.

SAD NEWS AND CANDY UP FOR GRABS



CRAFTYKRAFTS which run both the Tilda & Co and Sarah Kay challenges has changed.  It is now called MAGNOLIA Vs STAMPAVIE.  Basicly you can use any Magnolia stamp, any Sarah Kay stamp and certain Rachelle Anne Miller stamps (details of which can be found on the new blog).  The new challenges will start on Sunday 2nd November and then every Sunday afterwards.

PINK CANDY

Thought I might have a go at this one as with a friend of mine who was given the all clear from breast cancer, but is suffering after-effects e.g. aching bones, anxiety, sleepless nights and is also celebrating a birthday on 26th October. After she had finished all her treatment a year and a half ago she has done some charity functions - charity night and walked the Westhighland Way, Scotland.  So to me she is proof that if you can overcome an illness as severe as this you can hopefully carry on the best with life afterwards.  Hope this card will help cheer her up even though she has these after-effects and hope this will remind her what a tower of strength she is to others.

Stamp - Tilda with Rose.
Backing paper - Stash.
Embosser - Sissix Scrap Pink Kit
Ribbon - Stash.
Flowers - Cuddly Buddly.
Pink Brads - Papermania.
Sentiment - My Own done on computer.
