Hi Everyone,

You wont have your cards ready! if you wait to long!
At ABC Challenge you can join in with us and get a huge amount of your Christmas cards made and ready for Christmas

Its Carissa turn this time to host the challenge and she has draw a fabby Sketch for us to follow....

And Gerda the owner and illustrator of Stamp Fairy
Has Drawn us a Brand new Digi image as a Freebie as our Challenge this time is F for Freebie! you can download it from our Challenge blog.

OK so how you have all the info here is my card...
As always I have reached for my distress inks to colour Lenny
I loved Carissa's sketch as we could add whatever embellishments we wanted
I used some Yummi Card candy and also some star pins and a little twine bow.

I love challenges and found a few to enter:

 We are really lucky to have some of my DT buddies from the 
 Stamp Fairy Design  to joining us this challenge too! so be sure to stop by and check out all the DT cards and leave them some comments too!

Just want to share my Finished Scarf too!
This is what I showed you the other night...
The Loopy Scarf by Rico that I a non Knitter Knitted...
Got the wool Saturday afternoon and finished Knitting it Monday evening.

Not bad hu

This was yesterday afternoon in at the shop!
Not sure about the person wearing it mind! ekk!
Ok so I had a little time to play last night too!
and made a very very quick and simple card, I have done a mini Tutorial on how I made it

 OK here goes:
What you need:
Black card, White Pen, Pale Acrylic dauber (I used sky blue)
Sentiment stamp, White pigment ink, Liquid Pearls, A Rubber Stamp.

Embossing board,
On a messy mat ( I use a Ranger one)   daub some paint from your dauber I love these as you don't waste to much paint

then squirt some liquid pearls on top

with your stamp tap in the mixture

and then stamp your image onto your card stock roughly through the middle.

it dries real quick, With a sentiment stamp and white ink stamp your sentiment,

with the white pen add some doodles,

Once everything was dry which is minutes I add some embossed lines... that's it! Simple..

I made this card so I could join in with one challenge that is fast becoming a favourite of mine! Less is More - Their challenge this week is One Layer Card - Off the Edge.

Whoops! tehhhee I did not see that Less in more was no score lines!
ShhhucKs! thanks girls!
you know that means I will have to make another card! thhehehee :0)

So while playing that Challenge I also found a few others too, that I would like to play too...

Paper Sundaes - Keep It Simple.
One Stop Craft - Clean & Simple.
Delightful Sketches - Delightful Butterflies
Simplicity - 1 Layer Wednesday - whoops missed the deadline :0(

Happy Wednesday Gang!

  2. I already knew you were Loopy hun, lol!! Great cards as always, the SF image is a cutie, and I love your LIM card, even if the process is a bit too messy for furry paws. Hugs Sxx

  3. Both cards are gorgeous!!!! I love the technique you used on the butterfly!!! And your scarf is so pretty!!!!

  4. Love all your makes and the scarf looks fab, I have one in that yarn on the needles but am finding it very difficult to knit with. Have you any tips?

  5. Hi samantha
    Firstly, I love your scarf!
    Super card, I love the butterflies
    Our added extra 'twist' on this week was no embossed lines. So officially your card wouldn't be eligible for showCASing
    Thanks for joining us, it's great to see you
    "Less is More"

  6. Love your star pins and great job with the sketch, thanks for joining our Star challenge at the Die Cut Dreams Christmas blog!

  7. This card is super... I love the effect you got using the liquid pearls in the mixture.
    One small snag is that our challenge this week also had the limitation of 'no scored lines'!
    We didn't mean to catch you out... honest!
    See you next time!
