Santa's Cookies Are Ready!

Good morning everyone!
How are you all today?
I'm still totally chasing my tail & playing catch up but I am getting closer
 every day to being organised for Christmas!
Over at the 2 Sisters Challenge blog, there's a new challenge for you!
This week the Theme is Krafty Christmas & we'd like to see you 
use Kraft on your project!
Here's my GDT card!

It's a simple little A6 card.
This weeks sponsor is Kenny K & I was given this little 
sweetie Santa Cookies from Kenny K to work with!
Isn't she just the cutest little thing you've ever seen!
I did try to print the image out onto Kraft card-stock but it wasn't
to be as the Kraft was just to thick for my poor printer.
So, instead I used Kraft for my base & for matting!

I coloured the image with a combination of Copics, Promarkers &
Flexmarkers then cut her out with an oval Nestie.
I cut the matt with a scalloped oval.

The sentiment ticket is from The Crafty Pad

The ribbons are from Lidl & the little Chrome Bell from MieFlower

The buttons & design paper were from my stash.
I used a simple paper insert to finish off this little card!
I hope you like it! 
I'm dropping it off later at my hairdressers 
with a box of cookies for them all!
Thanks so much for stopping by, it's always nice to have visitors!
I hope you have the time to Get Krafty & join in with  the 
challenge at 2 Sisters this time!

Hell For Leather!

Good Morning all!
It's Thursday & time for me to share a Just Inklined creation with you!

As you'll see my card is not a Christmas card!
It's for my hubby's 50th Birthday! 

The image I have used is Hell For Leather from Just Inklined
It's the perfect image for bikers of all ages!
I've used a 6"x6" Kraft card base.
The papers I have used are from Southfield Stationers.

I coloured the image with my trusty Promarkers. 
Then inked with a Colourbox Cats Eye chalk inkpad.
I really love these little pads!
The card base is 6"x6" Kraft & I have matted with plain black paper.
The numbers are Anita's Glitterations & the cogs are Sizzix Dies.
I've had these for ages & haven't used them! They are sooo cool!

I've decorated the inside of the card in a similar style to the front!
I did have some sentiment tickets printed off to add to this card but 
I decided against using them as I like it as it is!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges!
Thanks to the volunteers at Feline Playful who make it so easy!

A New Truck For My Wife

Good evening lovely bloggers!
Here's a card I made for my nieces husband's Birthday.
He like his vehicles & when I saw this image I thought of him!

My card is a 6"x6" square using smooth white card stock from 
Southfield Stationers The images is also printed on to card stock from Southfields
The papers are from the First Edition Hideaway Stack.
The green paper used for matting is from Lidl

for my card layout.
Sadly I have missed the challenge as I thought it was monthy & not 
every 2 weeks!*sob* *sob*

The image I have used is Gus Tidbits New Truck & the sentiment came with it!
I coloured it up with Promarkers from Letraset
As you can see I distressed all the edges using a pair of scissors.

The buttons were from a Papermania Capsule Collection

I decorated the inside of the card too. 
You can just about see it if you peek round the corner! lol

Dear Friends

Good Morning, & a happy Sunday to you all!
It's with a sad heart & a tear in my eye that I tell you today is my last
 DT card for The Crafty Pad. 
The challenge blog & The Crafty Pad Designs shop will both be
 closing after this challenge is over but for now, lets celebrate the  new challenge
Here's my little creation

The image I have used is Snowmen from The Crafty Pad Designs.
I love this image but I've never actually used it up until now.
I thought it was just perfect for this challenge theme.
I went for a CAS style too as on this occasion I felt less is more!

I printed the image & sentiment directly on to a DL card base, 
then printed the image a second time & fussy cut out the Snowmen 
I coloured the images with my Promarkers then layered them using some 
Pinflair glue for dimension. I added a line of glitter along the snowline

The sentiment is one I've used forever & I think it's very true!

I have made many dear friends in blog land, especially
the ladies I have met at The Crafty Pad they have been  wonderful
teamies & we've all had great fun! This card is dedicated to them &
to all of you, my lovely blogging friends!

I took a side view to try to show you the dimension!

I hope you can join in the challenge this week!
We'd love to see all your Friendship/Keep in touch creations!
We also hope to keep in touch with all the friends we've met 
Without your entries, it just wouldn't have been so much fun!

I must also say a thank you to all the sponsors, especially those who
supported my in my Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraising Challenge!

The last person I want to thank is Debbie the lovely boss without whom
there would have been no Crafty Pad Designs & none of the fun we've all had!

but, Debbie's images will still be available after then from
