Gobble Till You Wobble!!!

Happy Hump Day all! 
It's all downhill from here! Yay!!!

It's time for our Inspirational Challenge over at 
Here's your Inspiration!

You can take from the picture what you like & use it as your inspiration 
to create a product for a Dude!
Here's my card!

I took the turkey, the shape of the turkey's tail feathers, 
some of the colours & the lady!
The image I have used is Fanny Thanks by Marloony for Dude Time Doodles!
She's a real doll & has cooked up a treat for her man!
At least I think she's going to share it! lol!!!

As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in UK I opted to make  a 
Christmas card!
Turkey is generally the order of the day for Christmas dinner!
I made an easel card as I haven't made one for ages & was 
having major withdrawl symptoms!
The base was cut using a Grand Nestabillities  Label die.
I then inked the edges using a cats's eye inkpad!
I added mats of red foil paper & green Christmas tree DP.
Not sure where the DP is from it's been in my stash for a while!

I paper pieced Fanny & finished colouring with Promarkers!
I then cut her out with a nestie & matted & layered with 
textured red foil paper, then white card which 
was also edged with an inkpad!
Not sure if you can make out the sentiment?

Here it is a bit closer, it says
"Condiments Of The Seasoning!"
The only embellishments I added are some die cut snowflakes which 
I layered with foam tape!
I do hope you can come & play along in the Challenge!

Black Moon Fairy

Evening all!
Whilst you're here, why not enter my Candy Draw!

As promised, I'm back with my entry for the Craftystash November Competition.
Here's a reminder of the layout template.

You can download it from here!
Here's my card.

I made up the picture in my graphics programme & used it to make a pyramage sheet
I layered it up using Pinflair glue.
The papers have all been in my stash for ages.
The lovely silver ribbon was bought from Create &Craft last year.

I'm guessing the sentiment was from Sentiments 4 You,
I cut it out with an inverted scallop nestie & added a little rose to the centre!
Thanks for looking & I hope you can find the time to enter the

I'm Dreaming of a White Sunday!

Good Morning all!
It's Sunday & it's time for the new challenge at The Crafty Pad!
The theme for challenge #147 is
White On White!
The DT were given Snowman Couple image to work with this week!
Such a sweet little couple, I love their smiley little face!
This is my little card!

I've never done a White on White card before so this again was a challenge for me!
I now officially have the bug! lol
I used a white linen square card for the base!
I used two different Cuttlebug embossing folders for the mats,
Swiss Dots & Snowflakes! I love both of these so much!
I added clear gems to the centre of the snowflakes & used
some ribbon to cover the join between the two mats.

I coloured the lovely little couple with a selection of Sakura Gelly Roll Glitter pens & 
Promarkers, then cut them out with a scalloped circle nestie.
I ran a Promarker around the outside of the circle & added some Diamond Sparkles.
I never seem to get the glitter to show up properly in photo's!
I matted the circle onto two panels which were cut out with a Marianne Creatable die,
To cover the join I added a double bow to either side!

The sentiment ticket is one of many from The Craft Pad Designs too!
I coloured in the Holly with the Sakura Gelly Roll pens!
Thanks for stopping by & I hope we'll see you over at 
The Crafty Pad to join in the fun this week!
I'm sure you can all make at least one White on White card at this time of year!
