Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 179

The challenge at Penny Black this week is Christmas + Red & Embossing. At long last I've actually made another christmas card, but unfortunately its only my 3rd. I've been wanting to use this stamp for ages. Its called Fantasy (isn't it gorgeous). I used Tinsel Gold embossing powder on the tree and added red gems. The ribbon used is from my stash, actually it was ribbon I bought to decorate my friends wedding cake, I've got a full roll of it. The sentiment is a peel off. We're off to Manchester tomorrow to see what the christmas market is like. Hope its a good one.

Tilda writing diary

Its my aunties birthday soon. Since she retired she is enjoying her free time attending different classes and one of them is creative writing. Tilda writing diary I think is the perfect stamp for her. The papers I've used are K & Company Classic K Bailey, the writing on the background is a Hero Arts stamp Old Letter Writing that I have embossed with silver. The blue flowers are from Wild Orchid and the brown branches are from a Martha Stewart punch. I'm entering this card into the following challenges
Cupcake Craft Challenges 167 - Textalicious
Sketch n Stash Challenge 74 - a sketch
Wild Orchid Challenge - Week 36 Brown & Blue

Whiff of Joy Challenge #116 - Karina's Sketch

My friends son is soon going travelling, not coming home for quite a few months. I know that his first stop is Bankok (fingers crossed that all the flood waters have subsided by then). I asked my friend Sandra if she would like me to make her a card to give to him. As soon as I saw Henry the Mouse around the world, I just had to use him but Sandra doesn't like mice (sorry but I had to cut his tail off). The papers are Bo Bunny and the sentiment is also Whiff of Joy You are my Hero. Thanks Karina for a brilliant sketch to give me some inspiration.
