Santas Tipple

Wowsers, it's Thursday already people!
I hope you are all having a good week!
Lol, I'm just thinking that my blogposts are a bit like buses! 
None for ages then they all appear at once!
On to my project!
I made a card using a brand new image,
it's called Santas Tipple & is just one of the fantastic 
new set of images available at Just Inklined
I think this would be a great Christmas card for a guy!
As these are pencil drawn, the lines are much softer! I totally love them all! 
The paper is from Southfields Black & Silver Christmas background paper pad.
I used holographic silver mirror card & plain black card
from my stash to matt & layer.
As the lines were soft, I wanted to colour him in with soft colours.
I had a couple of ideas up my sleeve, but this is what I did!
I coloured the image with flexmarkers, adding a pop of colour
with the holly on Santas hat! He's so jolly looking & he
looks like he's looking forward to his tipple too!
The sentiment was made on my PC using a fantastic free font
called White Christmas. I wrapped some twine around the 
card, added a metal snowflake which has been in my stash for 
a very long time & stuck a red self-adhesive gem at the centre.
Thanks for popping by! I always appreciate your visits!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Tag It!

Good Morning Blogland!
Another post from me today! Woo Hoo!
Over at Crafting For All Seasons, we have a brand new challenge for you!
The theme this time  is "Tag It!" 
We can't wait to see what you come up with!
Here's my project
Our sponsor this time is A Day For Daisies.
I used "Banana Fairy", a sponsor image.
(Sorry, their site is down for maintainence so will link when I can!)
I used Xcut scalloped heart dies to cut the tag & mats.
The letters were die cut with Sizzix First Step Alphabet dies

I printed out the image twice, coloured with a mix of Promarkers
& Flexmarkers, fussy cut around them then layered for some
dimension. The CS is from Southfield Stationers,
the gingham paper is from Carftwork Cards
The ribbon & twine is from Lidls gift wrapping section.
Thanks for popping in!

Good Morning lovely blogger, I have  card to share today!
The current challenge theme over at The Crafting Cafe is 
Interpret as you will, create a project & link it up so we can all 
come over to visit your blog & Oooh & Ahh over it! lol
Here's my creation!

I've made a little shaker Christmas card.
The image is AKV Nativity Baby Jesus from our sponsor 
The base card is 5"x5" Kraft & the papers are from my stash!
I've had them for ages but don't know who they are by as they came in a goodie box 
as far as I can recall! I added some good old Peel Off borders which are 
actually the waste from between bubble border strips. The little dots are
also waste from the middle of the bubbles.

Sorry about the photos but it was really windy outside where
I normally take my pics & the card almost blew away several times.
It has gotten so shaken up that the glitter has gone a bit static
& is clinging on to the acetate! lol.
There is actually a little silver fibre bow at the bottom of the shaker
window but I'm not sure you can make it out in the photo! lol
Thanks for popping by! I do hope you can play in the challenge!
