Well I gave it my best shot but I am afraid I have not succeeded at creating such beautiful bags as my friends….I had a lot of fun doing it though, thanks to this little cha - Christmas Party Paws.
I then went the whole hog with holly dies (cut on to white and coloured in with my pens) and pearl dots in red and white, before finally finishing off with a splash of glitter.
I hope you like my little experiment!
Here are a few challenges that I would like to enter:
Thanks for coming to visit me today!

Once again I decoupaged the main image, which I printed in quite a large size as this is an 8x8 card. A nice bunch of reds was in order for this card so out came the Graph Its for that :-)
Finally, I surpassed myself by only using a minimal amount of glitter on this card….very restrained considering it is a Christmas card!
So - that's my card for today and here are some challenges that I would like to enter this time around:
Thanks so much for stopping by today and supporting my blog. I wish you all a happy week and roll on the weekend!

He's so simple to colour and, to my mind, he just has to be white, which meant that the whole stamp took little more than 5 minutes to colour in.
I made the card shape using one of my grand nests, which meant the letting was easy as all I had to do was pick a slightly smaller die.
The beautiful papers are taken from my Hollybobs CD…definitely my favourite CD of the moment, and I coloured the trees to match the tree paper that you see just poking out from behind the image.
To add a bit of graduation around the edges of the image I did a bit of stippling with a distress ink, before finally adding some die cut snowflakes, a few pearls and she glitter.
So that's my card for today…..hope the dog lovers out there like it. :-)
Finally here are a few card challenges that I would like to enter…..

But one thing I certainly do love in Autumn is to watch the leaves turn and the beautiful colours that are all around us when this happens.
we have a lot of trees where I live so, when I look out of my window I see shades of red, gold and orange all around and it really gives me a moment of wonder.
And that's one of the reasons why I love the Nitwits papers that I used for this card. They are from the Go Nuts set, and they are a gorgeous combination of Autumn and Halloween type colours, which feature a lot in my crafting at this time of year.
So there are some lovely challenges this week so here are the ones I would like to enter with this card:

My crafty list of things to do this year consists of many things - paper craft, crochet, jewellery making to name but a few, and I already know that I will gail miserably when it comes to completing my to do list, but all the fun is in trying don't you think?
I am trying to get a few cars under my belt at the moment, and this is one of them, using a variety of stamps from Stamp Addicts. You can by everything here on their website, including the 'Ho' stamp which is a stamps by Judith stubby.
So on my card I have gone for fun and vibrant with my Spectrum Noirs, plus all of the images are decoupaged, which had the added advantage that I didn't have to worry too much about staying in the lines with my colouring!
Oh- and did you spot the sneaky appearance of some Kraft card in there? I didn't take to it at first but now I am really in to it!!
Well that's all for me today as it's Sunday afternoon and I want to enjoy some more craft time before going back to the weekly grind!!
In the meantime, here are some cherry challenges that I would like to enter this week.
Thanks for stopping by today, and a happy weekend to you all.

I loved this little boy as he is so cute with the Robin and having him sitting on the fence puts him in a little scene rather than just standing there, if you know what I mean.
I thought the Christmas Tree paper would go really well with this, so I printed off the same paper in two different colour ways, which makes putting the card together nice and easy.
I don't know what you call this type of card, but it's the first time I've done it. It's made from a piece of A4 Kraft card…..mainly because I printed out the image nice and big!
How do you like the North Pole sign…..this is also off of the Cd and I printed about 6 of these cos I love them…so you can expect to see them popping up on some of my other cards too. :-)
I wanted to have nice bold colouring for this image so I got out the Graph Its, which are just perfect when you want the image to pop.
Finally, I have added a few die cuts for some extra decoration.
Well I hope you like this festive card - there are lots of lovely challenges that ft this, so here they are:
That's all from me today.
Thank you for stoping by. :-)

It's hard to tell from the picture but, to give you an idea of the size, the orange backing paper is a full sheet of A4!
To make this bag I used one of my lovely Nitwits digital sets and super sized all of the elements. The plus side of this was that the pieces were really easy to cut out. The downside is, that I decided to decoupage the laments and it took a heck of a lot of silicon glue to do it
The picture is not that great as it was taken in poor light but hopefully you get the idea!
So I'm going to enter a few challenges as per usual, and here they are:
Thanks for stopping by today. I'm off to do some more crafting now! :-)

Well here I am again, with something a little different today…a Christmas card all in shades of brown.
I'm not sure why but I wanted to go for a kind of Sepia effect with this card, so out came the Kraft card, swiftly followed by my brown pro markers. I then has a busy old time stamping and cutting out the mini frames, which are new from stamp addicts, before infilling them with a tiny little holly stamp and some pearl paint berries.
The lovely stocking is also new from Stamp Addicts, designed by Lesley I believe, and it's very quick and easy to colour in…perfect for when you want to make a lot of cards in a hurry.
So, there are a few challenges that I would like to enter today, and here they are:
Thanks for visiting today.

So here is my card for the challenge using a fabulous Tatty Twinkles stamp - isn't she just adorable?
I have coloured her with my Graph Its which happened to have just the right shades of Blue to go with my backing paper.
The paper is a digital paper from my BeBunni CD rom…so simple and yet stunning don't you think? I love how the little hearts look like they have been coloured in with crayons.
The purple card is centura pearl, as is the lilac which I embossed on my Grand Calibur. It always amazes mw how beautifully the embossing comes out on this card….it gives me such a buzz!
The Ribbon, was originally white, but of course I coloured it with my Graph Its so it is now the perfect match.
Finally - how do you like the butterfly and the little purple hearts? Both of these are extras on the Tatty Twinkles stamp….and just what I needed to finish off my card.
Well I do hope that you like my card and that you will inspired to come over at join us over at Crafty Little Fairies this month where there are lots of wonderful sponsors offering some fabulous prizes.
Before I go, though, just a few more lovely challenges that I would like to enter:
