All those challenges? and a blog hop

Feeling a little low and have done my chorse
so I thought I would look for some challenges

As luck would have it I found Pile it on- Winter Means
Anything Goes - Let it Snow
Alota Rubberstamps - Christmas
Crafts and Me - Glitter
Paper Romance - My favourite things - Distress inks and glitter
The Crafty Pad - Christmas Sparkle.
Marks Finest Papers/Speedy's the Cats - Use a circle - Buttons/bauble
CCEE Stampers - Buttons
Simple Doodles - Buttons

Top Tip Tuesday - 1 or More Buttons - my tip is: 
I have added a broad line of double sided tape then stuck my clear buttons on and then added ultra fine glitter this way the buttons stick to the tape still look clear and the glitter does not should on the buttons if that makes sense and also you don't have to try and get the buttons to stick to the glitter.


Delightful Sketches - Winter Weather
Daring Cardmakers - 3 of something- panels/card candy
Hodge Podge Shop - Anything Goes

Digi Doodles Shops Best - Anything Goes 
Diecut Dreams Christmas - Anything Goes Christmas

Caardvarks - Holiday Card + use diecuts
Frosted Designs - Distressing
Stamp and Create - 'Tis the Season - 2nd card (hope that's ok)
Stamp Man - Christmas with Tim Holtz - Distress inks, I LOVE them!

And for my last card I just had to join in with Wild Rose Studio's first ever blog hop now it would have been rude not to! they have a lovely sketch and some fantastic inspiration from the DT..
Not that you can see it very well but the blue card is lovely bazzill bling and I have stamped it with Art Quest Jewelz water colours with Sunburst by Penny black the image I have used is Trophy Guy from WRS hope you have a better day than me I have had this headache for 3 days now! sigh!

  12. Hi Samantha! Thanks so much for your kind comments on my blog. I wanted to answer you question about the holly.

    The holly leaves along the top are cut from the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge. The size is 1.5".

    The holly leaves on the bench are part of the stamp, and I've layered them to create a 3D effect. The stamp is from the '08 Magnolia Santa Collection.
