Christmas Cards...

I don't get the time to make cards as much as I used to so I always love being asked to take part in a Stampers' Challenge with Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft Magazine!  It's the perfect excuse to play with paper and ink again! For last month's issue (Vol 19 No 12) I got to play with some cute Christmassy stamps from The Crafts Meow and it was such a fun surprise to see one of my cards on the cover!

These stamps are called "Santa's Little Helper".  They're so festive and so fun to play with!

I decided to paper piece the images which was a little fiddly but so worth the effort!  I love this little wagon filled with presents!

I used foam tape to add a little dimension to the wagon and used buttons for the wheels...

And how cute are these little elf legs and hat!

Again I pieced the images together using paper/cardstock and added some rhinestones for a little sparkle on this one. :)

I loved working with these stamps and I know I'll be using them again and again...especially with Christmas getting closer every day. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Jot Mood Board Challenge 11

It's time for a new mood board  challenge over on the Jot Magazine Blog and this month lovely Jot Girl Anna Allan has put this one together for us.  It's gorgeous!!!

So pretty isn't it!?  I did find it a little tricky to find some gold in my stash but came across a couple of gold stickers and some similar coloured cardstock to use...and here's my sample page...

Gosh Madison looks so little in this picture!  I was almost three years ago now when she got her very first bike.  She was so excited!!!

 I love these pretty glittered Thickers I've used in my title.  They're such a lovely font!

We'd love you to join in with this mood board challenge and you've got until the end of November to get your entry so there's heaps of time for you to get scrapping!  Check out all the details HERE on the Jot Blog.
