Hello folks!

Here's a card for Your Next Stamp's Anything Goes Challenge:

Have a very inky Christmas!

Hamming it Up for MFT

Hello, hello,

Only 6 days to go until Santa comes ho, ho, ho-ing down the chimney! Not much time to get inky but new stamps do give you a kick into action don't they? Here's one for the latest MFT colour challenge:

My neutrals are the flesh coloured pinks I used for the little pigs and the brown fence, but otherwise I stuck to the colours.  I used BB Hog Heaven and the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges.

I'm also chucking it over to Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge where the theme is 'Stitch It.'

Thanks for looking!

It's Cold up North

Hello folks,

Just a quick, CAS card for AAA Cards and CASology:

AAA's challenge is to create a mostly white card so I created a little snow scene using these sweet wooden houses from my local craft store. It's so hard to photograph white cards - I really haven't captured how bright and sparkly it actually is!

And what could be more Northern then a snow scene to fit CASology's challenge? Oh how I long to be North this Christmas instead of baking in the 35C heat of Sydney!

Happy stamping!

Freshly Made Sketches Take 2

Hello again,

As promised, here's a second take om the latest Freshly Made Sketch, using the colours from MFT's colour challenge:

I had an A5 card already prepared with MFT's Wood Plank and managed to cut a couple of Mod Rectangles out of it. The colours scream Christmas don't they, but I thought they'd be perfect for Birdie Brown's sweet Viking stamp.

I'm also popping this one over to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge where 'anything goes.'

Happy stamping!

Christmas Colour for The Card Concept

Hello folks,

I always seem to get the bulk of my Christmas cards done early but there's always those last 3 or 4 that I struggle with. By this time of year, I'm well and truly over making Christmas cards. 

It helps when you have new stamps to play with though - MFT's recent 35% off sale prompted me to use a recently won gift voucher, so I bought Pure Innocence Holiday Cheer:

The sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches was perfect for this stamp and I used the colours from The Card Concept's latest inspiration pic for this clean and layered card.

In fact, I liked the card sketch so much, I ended up making another one so scroll up if you want to take a peek!

Thanks for stopping by,
