Its a MERRY Christmas

Christmas time is fast approaching so I thought it timely
to choose MERRY as my WORD for this weeks Challenge.
My BFF gave me the Spellbinders Create a Flake 4 recently as
she found she had purchased it twice (lucky me)
so I just had to play with it and really happy how
my card turned out.
I love non traditional colours at Christmas time
so went for the softness for the snowflakes.
I cut multiple dies including an old
Cuttlebug Snowflake die added glitter
to a few of them and popped.
The embossing folder is also an old
Cuttlebug folder.
The Merry has been cut several times for depth
and top layer glittered.
Finished off with some bling.
Pop over to our blog for some lovely
MERRY cards from the Design Team
and I am sure you will be inspired to participate
in our Word Challenge.
Thanks for dropping by today.

'twas the Night Before Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner and Pamellia is Hosting at
Crafty Cardmakers & More and her theme is
'twas the Night Before Christmas
and we have printed out the words Here
for you to check so you can incorporate your card with
 something from the poem.

I decided to go with the Reindeer
(And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.)
and heat embossed my cut out image in gold.
My card stock is Kraft & White and the
DP is from Me to You
I have had the 3D holly stickers in my stash for years
and knew they were a perfect match for the DP
My reindeer is slightly popped and finished my card off
with some pearls.
Now it is your turn to come up with what inspired you.
 It is a good excuse to continue with your
Christmas card making.
Look forward to seeing what it is.

Sketch Time at 'The House'

Once again it is Sketch Time over at The 'House'
 All the details are Here
and isn't is an Easy Peasy One?
Perfect reason to add another card to my Christmas Pile.
Here's the products I used -
Various colours of purple card stock
(my favourite colour of course)
Cuttlebug Christmas Embossing Folder
Glitter & Mulberry Paper for the Banners
using SU Framelits
Repeat Impressions NOEL - 2107
was heat embossed
and then added a gemstone in the centre.
Foam Squares for depth.
It will be some time before I get back to
playing at 'The House'
as holidays beckon with Family
but will be back sometime in the New Year.
Thanks Wendy for all the wonderful Challenges
