MAGICAL MONDAY - Circles and Stripes

What a really quiet but boring week I have had of last.  Seren was on half term and went away with her daddy so I was left here on my own but thankfully I still had to go to work so at least the days went quicker.  Still didnt find time to craft though lol!

We had some amazing entries into our last challenge of Halloween over on Magical Monday  Challenge so don't forget to check to see if you are our winner.  Our next challenge has a theme of Circles and Stripes and I decided to create a Christmas card as I hadn't made as many as I had thought!!  We are kindly being sponsored by Crafty Purple Frog.

The image I have chosen to use is from Wild Rose Studio called Phoebe with Dove which I coloured in with my copics and added Sakura glitter pen to her wings and Stickles to the trim.  I then cut out with my circular nestie and pieced onto Real Red and Old Olive cardstock both from Stampin Up.  The dp is what I have purchased brand new from Papermania called Mistletoe Kisses and for a 12x12 pad was only £4.99.  Ribbon used is also Real Red from SU and the bow tied with my bow easy.  The sentiment was another new purchase which is from The Snowman range.  This was cut out with my Woodware circle punch and pieced onto a scallop circle punched out with my SU punch.  Flowers are from wildorchidcrafts and red adhesive gems from my stash.

The sketch I followed is from Sketch and Stash

Can't believe its that time of year again as its nearly Halloween, the clocks change and the dark and cold nights are upon us!!

The theme over on Magical Monday Challenge is Halloween and we are being sponsored by High Hopes Stamps who are offering to the lucky winner 3 "Magical" rubber stamps.

I have used an Angel Bear Halloween stamp from High Hopes and coloured in with promarkers and black glitter on the wings.  The black cardstock is from Stampin Up called Basic Black.  The dp I have used was sent to me in a RAK so no idea what they are all called.  I used my Magnolia Halloween sentiment, stars from Hobbycraft and black adhesive pearls also from Hobbycraft.

I have followed the lovely sketch over on Sketch Saturday and also entering my creation into the challenge over on ABC Challenge which is B is for 'Boo'!!

Don't forget to take a peek at what the rest of the DT have created.

MAGICAL MONDAY - Use 3 punches

What an amazing last week we have had with the glorious sunshine - shame it can't be like this when its suppose to be during the proper summer lol!  It doesn't feel like October especially knowing that the kids will be breaking up soon for half term!!

Our challenge over on Magical Monday is to use 3 different punches and we are being sponsored by the lovely Lacey and her store Stamp and Create.

I have used my gorgeous Magnolia stamp with violin and coloured her in with promarkers and Sakura Clear Star gellyroll pen on her wings.  I cut her out with my plain circle nestie and pieced her onto a scalloped circle cut out of white shimmer card from my stash.  The dp are both from Magnolia called Under the Mistletoe and Vintage Christmas.  I used my Stampin Up border punch for the fancy edging.  The flowers were punched out of the same shimmer card and Regal Rose cardstock from Stampin Up using my Nellie Snellen Poinsettia punches, I added white flower brads from my stash.  The pink sentiment is from craftworkcards and is also pieced onto shimmer card punched out with my Woodware circle punch.  The pink pearls are from Hobbycraft and the white ribbon was from my stash of which the ribbon was tied used my bow-easy.

The sketch I have followed is from the first challenge over on Friday Sketch Challenge which I have just realised I am too late for :-(  and also is being entered into the first challenge over on ABC Challenge with is Anything Goes.
