The Sugar Bowl Wk 47

Girls can you believe it's week 47 over at THE SUGAR BOWL already, seems like only yesterday it was a new blog, but alas time has flown and already its November, and christmas is rapidly approaching, thought it was time I got this challenge done, can't the the Sugar Bowl challenges, they are as my youngest says "awesome".

I've had a wee break from the christmas cards, and have made a birthday card to put in my stock box for next year, although I did sit down to do my 4 year old nephews card for next weekend, this is what I have ended up with LOL, well theres always tomorrow isn't there.

Used to make this card

Coloured with - Promarkers
Woodware Butterfly punches in 2 sizes
SU - Oval and scallop punches
Nestablitlie circles and scallops

Thought I'd keep this one quite simple with no DP, and let the fantastic image be the main point, I have added the ribbon bow, as thats the Theme for the sketch.

Right off to see what else I can come up with, having a me morning, lol.

Thanks for looking

Evening crafters, thats another week gone and another week nearer to christmas, how are you all getting on ploughing through your cards, I have to say this year I am remarkable well through mine, (touches wood just incase I jinx it), and the card I am about to share is one that will be going into the gift bag for the boys teachers, one down one more to go, have also done them candles, beaded necklaces and yummy box of sweet treats, which very bravely I am going to get the boys to make with me.

Anyway the card, I have asked the girls over at All Things Sugar Nellie on PCP to make tealight candle cards, I saw this card way back in June on our very own DONALDAS blog, and I thought I really need to have a bash at these, and here we are 5 months later I have actually got round to tackling it.

The tealights I have in the card are scented (Winter Berries) and it just adds that little something to the card too.

Used to make this card
Image - Snow Cozy from SUGAR NELLIE
Coloured with - Promarkers
DP - Jolly Happy Christmas pack from Dovecraft
Sentiment - Contempo Christmas from SU
Woodware - Snowflake Punch and Holly punch
A little bling and ribbon and flowers from stash, and once again paper rolled flowers to finish
And finally what christmas card would be complete without a little glitter

Anyway off to catch up on a bit of tele,

Good Night

Shaker Card for Sugar Nellie on PCP

Morning friends, and mad crafters, can't believe its cold wet and November already, can someone tell me what happened to Summer, did I happen to blink and miss it??

Got a wee card to share with you today, I challenges the girls over at PCP -All things SUgar Nellie Group to make shaker cards this week, and now my sample card has finally dried and the shaker bit isn't leaking I've managed to take a piccie or two.

I love shaker cards and the effect they give, the only problem is that I am not always successful, but am so glad to say that so far so good with this one, I have made it for my neighbours cause the girl reminds of their wee girl.

Used to make this card
