Mo's Challenge #115 - Favourite 2011 "Mo" Project

What an easy challenge at Mo's this week. You have to choose your favourite Mo project. Looking back I think my favourite one has to be Mo's The Engineer. I made this card for my uncle who is mad on model Hornby trains - perfect image for him. I originally made this in September.

Cupcake Craft Challenge & Mo's Challenge

I think this is the last card I will make in 2011. I've used the sketch from Cupcake Craft Challenge. The snowman is a Mo Manning digi image. So easy to colour him in. I should have used him on a few of my cards instead of just this one. The challenge at Mo's is Punch and/or dies. I've used my scallop nestie square around my snowman and used my Martha Stewart picket fence punch. The papers are Papermania.

Mo's Challenge #113 - The Fabric of our Lives

The challenge at Mo's this week is to add fabric to your project. I think you can class ribbon as a fabric. I've made this card for my Auntie Dots 85th birthday. If you met her there is no way you would guess she is that old, she is amazing for her age. I used Kansas as the main image. I love this picture. I've added red stickles to her shoes to give them a bit of bling (but its not quite showing up properly). I haven't a clue were I got the check ribbon from. The sentiment is from an Indigo Blue stamp called Aloysius/Happy Birthday.

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Don't Look at the Light

This weeks Cupcake challenge is Don't Look at the Light (definition It it sparkles, shines, gleams, glints and/or glitters). I think my card fits all of those. After making a few of the same card I must admit that my craft room is starting to look like a winter wonderland, everywhere you look sparkles after using gold embossing power. I've used this Penny Black stamp a few times this month. Its called Fantasy. I added gold embossing powder to the tree and also the christmas sentiment. I then added red rhinestones. The ribbon is from my stash.

Magnolia Crackers

I've been dying to try out the tutorial for this cracker which was featured in last years Magnolia Ink Magazine Christmas Edition. At long last I've given it a go and I'm quite pleased with my attempt, and it wasn't that hard at all. I used Papermania Henbury Lane paper to cover it, then coloured and added Angel Tilda. I added glamour dust to her wings and halo. The sentiment is a Magnolia accesory stamp which I've added Martha Stewart holly leaves on and red rhinestones. The snowflakes are also a Martha Stewart punch which have also had the glamour dust treatment. I've put inside the cracker my friends foundation brush ready for christmas. Its a bit different from normal wrapping. I'm that pleased I'm adding 2 photos. I'm entering my creation into 2 challenges

Lili of the Valley - Challenge 123 - Anything but a christmas card

This cute image called Gift Wrapped was the first one I coloured in after attending the Lili of the Valley colouring course. I think its not bad for a first solo attempt, but I need to practice plenty, especially when I look at Bevs & Jacques cards. The course was really good and it was nice to actually meet the people who's blogs I follow. A really simple birthday card, but I do like the pink and blue I chose.
