Toy Soldier Twisted Easel Card

Good Morning all!
I have a card to share with you today!
This is one for the boys, my great nephews to be exact!
I was just looking over the last of my Christmas cards & thinking I'm
definitely going to be more organised next year!
Lol Watch this space!

Once again, I have used Toy Soldier from the Christmas Box cd rom
by La Pashe. There's so much on there, you could have 
Christmas sorted in no time!

Here's the soldier! Isn't he fab?

A little side view to let you see the fold.
The papers I've used are  by Papermania. 
The greeting/stop was left over from another project.
 I just couldn't resist adding a red satin ribbon bow to finish it off!
Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day!
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Merry Christmas Post

Hi all,
I'm here to wish you all a Happy Christmas.
I hope Santa was good to you all!
As it's Thursday, I have a Just Inklined card to share
I've had so much fun playing with Just Inklined images over that last year.
You can find them on Facebook too! Why not pop over, join in the fun
& share your Just Inklined creations!
Every day, this week, on the Just Inklined Blog, one or two of the team are 
showcasing their favourite Christmas cards that they've made 
using Just Inklined digital stamps.
Each of us are allowed to give away the image that we've used to make our
 featured card, to 2 lucky commenters, Whoopee!

Here's my favourite Christmas card for Just Inklined using 

Find him here for next year!
Be sure to  leave a little love for a chance to win him!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Working With Sketches

Good morning bloggers, we're nearly there!
Are you ready yet?
It's time for my DT Project for this month's challenge at 
The Crafting Cafe, where the theme is

Here's a little Christmas tag I made using Sketch No. 4
I think it looks a little bit like a Christmas Bauble!

I was going to share some of the others I had made with you but 
the light is appalling & I need to get my wrapping up sorted so
I'm afraid must get on with it!
To make this little tag., I cut a the base circle from some corrugated 
cardstock using a nestie. I added a strip of Washi tape (I love that stuff),
then glued on some Poinsettia confetti using Pinflair Glue.
(I did try a quickie glue pen initially but it didn't want to stick).
I added some curling ribbon, & a plain white panel on the reverse,
to write my message on.
If you haven't entered the challenge yet & you're wrapping presents
 & making tags,why not try using the sketches for your inspiration,
take a little photo & link up to the challenge here!
The challenge is open until the 31st December.
Hope to see your entries soon!
