Charisma Cardz

It's an ANYTHING GOES challenge over at the

Charisma Challenge this time.
I used papers from my stash and used this gorgeous fairy image from Teri at Delicious Doodles.
Pop over to the Charisma site to see all the wonderful sponsors we have for this challenge which will last for 2 weeks this time and all the other wonderful inspiration from the DT.

I am hoping to be back and do an actual real live unscheduled post before Santa arrives- have been up to my eyes in it, as I image you all have been yourselves but just incase I don't have a wonderful Happy Christmas and I hope Santa is good to you.

Taking some time out and decided to play along with the Penny Black challenge this week- not been very good lately at taking part in challenges as am surrounded with Christmas cards just now so as its snowing today it got me in the mood to join in the all white- you may colour the image- challenge at Penny Black
I almost forgot I had this stamp and came across it this week so having been using it lots over the past few days.
Stay safe and warm if you have snow- let's hope it doesn't get as bad as last year

A Couple of Challenges

Good afternoon from a rather cold and frosty Scotland today- had to scrape the ice of the car before I could take the dogs to the park this morning.
I must be feeling all Chrsitmassy as I started my shopping when I was out- now what does it say about me the fact I started with the animals!!!!
My first card I made using papers from Funky Hand and some corrugated card and it is for the Just Magnolia anything goes challenge- you can add lace and pearls if you want, so i did
I am also entering it into Allsorts- shaped card challenge

The next two items are for my Funky Hand teamie Ruth's new challenge site Crimbo Crackers

The card and pillow box are made using the Snow Buddeeze CD from Debbi Moore

And this Chrsitmas bird house is made from the template on the Polka Doodles Candy Doodles CD- don't expect you would find a fairy rabbit in a birdhouse but in my world you do!!!

And here's a little side view

Have a lovely Sunday folks and I might be back later on today with some more makes

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz

The challenge at Kenny K's this week is Santa is on his way so I quickly made this card for the challenge as I am trying to finish some orders and not succeeding very quickly- doing everything apart from them

even made some cheese scones- check me out!!!! not baked for years but felt the notion to make some today

Are they edible??- well tried one on the dogs first so if they say they are fine then they are fit for human consumption and they seemed to go down well with them

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz and Totally Gorjuss

At Kenny K's this weeks the challenge is to make a shaped card and at Totally Gorjuss the challenge is Ooh La La so my next card is for that challenge

the paper is by Funky Hand and it is one of my favourite papers and i just realised that in Craft Studio I can change the colour of it so I made it pink for this ooh La La very girly card- so be warned I might be changing all my favourite papers now to suit the colour scheme

Took me ages to make these today as the tendonitis in my hand is back and very painful but decided it needed some exercise instead of doing nothing- bet it's worse tonight! think I need to teach the dogs how to work my bug and punches for when it flares up.
Hope you had a lovely weekend

Bye for now

The challenge at Allsorts this week is to use at least five flowers so I suspended three with acetate and put two on my card base.
The papers are from a Me and My Big Ideas black and white pad.
it is still warm here although it is raining and I am so sad about that as I was going to cut my grass and here I am having to craft instead... hehe.. but did manage to get some housework done and a couple of washings so it's not all been fun
Hope you are having a lovely weekend

Delicious Doodles

this fortnight's Delicious Doodles Challenge is fun this week it called TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED- so we want to see something unusual or a cute card with a horrible saying etc, so long as its not what you would really expect

For my card I used Teri's snakeskin paper along with Allura and Voodoo woman images

The front of the card says I want those new shoes darling...

and then you open it up and there is Voodoo woman saying And you know if I don't get what I want then the doll must come out!

so I do hope that wasn't quite what you were expecting

Looking forward to visiting to see what you come up with
