ABC Christmas DT Card - N is for Noel with Embossing

For the latest challenge over on ABC Christmas Challenge Blog we are on N is for Noel with added embossing.  We are being sponsored by Wild Rose Studio who have provided the DT with images and papers to work with from the Christmas CD.

I have used a downloadable little girl with presents from the Christmas CD, coloured her in with my Prisma pencils and blue Stardust Gelpen and mounted onto blue shimmery Bazzill Basics paper.  The dp is also available to download off the same CD.  The embossing was created with my Sissix Snowflakes embossing folder using the same Bazzill paper.  Snowflakes and silver balls of snow are Anita's and the adhesive gems are Hobbycraft.

Pop along to the rest of the DT and see what they have created.

DDSB DT CARD CHALLENGE 13 - Anything Goes!

Can't believe its the end of the month again so here we have another Anything Goes challenge over on Digi Doodle Shops Best.  You can choose to do anything you like.  I have scheduled this post as I am on holiday this week in Cornwall and will be celebrating my 10 year wedding anniversary today too!

Been as though it was Father's Day last Sunday I made this card for my dad.  I used Relaxing Dad digi stamp from the Digi Doodle Store, coloured it in with copics and mounted onto cardstock from Stampin Up called Close to Cocoa.  The dp and buttons were from my stash and the sentiment I made on the computer.

This is my second and final week as GD over at Sketch and Stash .  I have really enjoyed being GD for them and are looking forward to entering the forthcoming challenges.

I have used my brand new Baby Girl Hanglar stamp and coloured her in with my brand new Prisma pencils.  Thought I would give them a go and found I really like using them.  I then cut her out with my oval nestability and mounted onto a scallop oval nestability shape cut out of Blush Blossom cardstock from Stampin Up.  The roses are a brand new purchase from wildorchidcrafts.

My hardly used stash is the dp which is DCWV  Nana's Nursery Baby Girl and ribbon from my stash.

Thought I would be prepared with this card as a mum whose daughter goes to the same dance school as my daughter is expecting her 5th daughter in September.

I'm so glad i found this new challenge blog lovely-haenglar-Only which is  just solely for Hanglar StAnglar stamps as I absolutely love them to bits!  This challenge is to make a 'shabby' card so this is my attempt.  I have also followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers.

I have used a stamp I bought a few months ago off a friend, coloured her in with my Prisma pencils, cut out and mounted onto cardstock from Stampin Up called Taken With Teal.  The dp are also all from SU called Sweet Pea Designer Paper Pack and also the So Saffron cardstock.  I used my Martha Stewart Floral Lace punch and added Very Vanilla SU ribbon.  The sentiment is from Hanglar, flowers are Prima Daisy Doodles which have been held together with a designer brad called Filigree also from SU.  I distressed the edges of all the papers with my distressing tool.

This will be my last posting until after 26th June as off on holiday camping in Cornwall where I will also celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary.

Here is my darling little princess Seren who was one of the bridesmaids for my hubby's best friend.  My hubby was bestman who is on the left and his friend the groom is on the right.  We all had a lovely day and thankfully the sun shone too.  This was the first time my little girl has been a bridesmaid and she loved every minute of it.  Her hair which unfortunately you can't see very well is usually straight but I managed to curl it into ringlet type curls with my newly purchased curling wand (best money every spent on a hair appliance!) even though it did take nearly an hour to do!!!!
