ABC Christmas Challenge

I thought I would try to get a head start on my Christmas Cards this year, hence my submission to the ABC Christmas Challenge here. This challenge is "B" for Black and White. You must use only black and white to make your card but some colour can be used on the image. Dustin Pike is sponsoring the challenge and gave a freebie to use if you wish. I chose to use the freebie. It doesn't show up very well in the picture but I used dazzling diamonds on the image and also around the words "Winter Wonderland".

Black and white is definitely not normal for me on my Christmas Cards but I am pleased with the result.

Entry for Karen's Doodles Challenge

I am late with this challenge but hopefully I will make it before the deadline. My card today uses an image from Karen at Karens Doodles and I am entering into the challenge here. The challenge is "Buttons Galore" and you must use a digital image from Karens Doodles. My cardstock and dsp is all from stampin up and I cut out buttons with a sizzix die purchased from stampin up. This way it won't make it too bulky to mail. I apologize for the colours on my picture but the light wasn't very good when I took it a few minutes ago.

I hope you enjoy looking at my card.

Wow another card

I can't believe I have another card to show. This card is for entry into the Delightful Inspiration challenge. This is a progressive challenge where if you enter one week then Faith sends you a digi image to enter into the following week. The image was coloured with copics and I used cardstock and dsp from my stash.

Catch the Bug Challenge - Winter Whites

My card today is for entry into the Catch the Bug Challenge. I used one of the bugaboo digi images and coloured it with copics (I still have a lot to learn about colouring with copics). All cardstock is Stampin Up. Sorry for the poor picture, the snowflakes in the top right corner are a little difficult to see white on white. Here is a close up.

Entering 2 challenges

I am entering two challenges with this card, the first is the Delightful Inspiration Challenge, the image used on this card can be found at Designed2Delight Digital stamps, and the second is the Sweet Stop Challenge which was a sketch. For my card I used stampin up card stock pink pirouette and riding hood red. The Designer paper was from Nitwits, and the image was coloured with a combination of chalk and copic markers and dazzling diamonds around the edge of the frosting.
