Dottie's gone all Girly!

This week over on Dottie's World the challnge is simply to make a card for a girl.My plan was for me to use another image from the fab new "Sugar and Spice" collection but time got the better of me I am afraid to say so I am showing you a girlie Christmas card I made last week!

Only days to go!!!!!!

...and am I ready....ho ho ho...of course not! I have been hindered by the flu and snow but still optimistic!

Anyway, made another Xmas card yesterday ready for the latest challenge over on Dottie's World. It was Gunn's turn to set the challenge:
"Christmas is only a few days away. Here in Norway we do celebrate christmas eve (24th) with gifts under the christmas tree. In UK and lots of other countries you celebrate christmas morning (25th) with gifts in your stockings. In my family we got a christmas stocking on chrismas morning, not with gifts, but with sweets..... Can you guess what i want...?
Yes, please.. I want you to use a christmas stocking in your card or project. It can be paper, die cuts, punches- whatever and how you want to. The main thing to remember is to use a Charmed downloads to go."
Now I struggled with this, my inspiration is still long lost so eventually I cheated by using an old "Anita's" stamp as a background. I adore the little girl "Market Day" from the new Sugar and Spice download collection- she was a dream to colour!

3 Stars for Dottie!

It is Nicole's turn to set the challenge over at Dottie's World today and here it is;
"For this week's challenge I would like to see three snowflakes along with a Charmed Download. Snowflakes can be felt/die cut/glittered/flocked/distressed/airbrushed...use your imagination or keep it simple....but make sure you have fun!"

Still desperately in need of making my Christmas cards I came up with this.

I used an image from the Holly & Madison World Tour Collection! I cheated a bit with the third snowflake though! LOL

Copic Colour Challenge # 43

My goodness, how quickly has Christmas snuck up upon us!!! Things are still unsettled here but I live in hope for a stress free Christmas...HO, HO, HO! My sister's op went ahead last week and she is now at home recovering. My mum had a two week stay in hospital with fears of her new kidney rejecting but came home last Thursday. This was rather short lived as yesterday they called her back in with yet more concerns so once again, she is stuck up in King's College, London...while I am full of cold and stuck in Kent! Oh well, that's they way it goes and I am completely helpless again!
With Chistmas and the silly season upon us there is no chance of finding my crafty mojo just yet I am afraid but I did however make a very basic attempt at this week's Copic Colour Challenge.
The colours are;

and here is my card;

Pop over and play along!

Dottie's World - You're a star!

It was my turn to set the challenge over on Dottie's World and still in search of my crafty mojo I struggled again! I am still in desperate need of some christmas cards so I decided on something that could be interpreted as festive if you so choose to....there are surely other crafters out there that still aren't organised....aren't there?
"This week I would like to to incorporate stars in your creations, it could be a patterned paper, a star shaped card or a few twinkling embellies...the choice is your as long as we can see at least one star and a charmed download....anything goes."
