Challenge 78 - Christmas Come Early

I really didn't want to think about this in September but it really is time to start thinking about it if I need to be ready and after last year when Christmas crept up on me (who knew it was at the end of December - Duh).

For this Challenge we have the fabulous Nicole from

The Winner will received a $10 Gift Certificate

We were given an image and sentiment to use and I got to use the fabulous 
Christopher Holding Logs.  I really enjoyed colouring this image in and for a change I used my Copic markers to colour my image.  I had an idea in mind when I saw the image and decided to make a stepper card and use my Tim Holtz Bigz dies of pine trees for the side steppers.  I've used glitter card throughout but the trees are a self adhesive glitter foam.  The snowflake is a die and the glitter card came from Home Bargains.  I didn't like the way the card mat edge looked so I used ribbon to mask the joins and edges.  For the edge of the white border at the bottom I drew round a Spellbinder die and then cut out with a knife.  The base card came from Craft Den Studio.  I'm really please with how this turned out and someone may get this as a Christmas card this year.

Hop over to the CWWCC and show us your Christmas projects.

Crafting When We Can Challenges 77 - Borrow a Sketch (give credit to the place you borrowed from)

A week late but having trouble with blogger.  Sometime it lets me in sometimes it tells me I don't exist.  I do I have a stinking cold to prove it.

Anyhoo over at CWWCC we have the wonderful sponsor

We were given 2 images to play with and I received Queen's Coronation Sassy.  I think she looks very regal.  I chose the papers first before I coloured her in.  I've had these papers for a while and didn't know what to do with them but as soon as I saw this image I knew I could use them, they are from Hot off the Press (Lemonade Stand).  Image and pearls are coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens.  I used a corner rounder to clip the square edges.  The flower are Petit petal pairs from Tonic.  I borrowed the sketch from Sketches by Carly.  Carly no longer runs the sketch challenges but she is designing images now at Imagine that Carly's Cuties.

Hop over to CWWCC and join in with your borrowed sketches (please credit the place you borrowed the sketch from).
