Merry Monday Christmas Challenge & ABC Christmas Challenge
Well, good morning. For someone who had not put up a post since January 5th, this is the second in three days! The reason? John was still asleep after a really bad night, so I got up, sorted the church noticesheet, then came through and made some cards. Having done the hard work, I felt it only right and proper to enter a couple of challenges…. so …
Here’s my entry for the Merry Monday Challenge – something with bells
The card was made using several papers I had in my cupboard, then a stamped Sheena Douglass design. The sentiment was typed into the computer, sized and printed onto card. Cut out with a Creative Expressions Californian collection die, it was then inked with memento colours whilst the die was still in place. The whole was titivated with candi and bows. I like my cards, wherever possible, to celebrate the real reason for Christmas, hence the idea of celebration at the baby born in a stable.
Now I wonder if it is OK to enter a different challenge, with a couple of different cards, in the same blog post?? Well, here goes!!
These two cards are for the ABC Christmas challenge – D – Don’t overdo it
The first card was made by simply stamping the DoCrafts image straight onto the card base using versamark ink and gold embossing powder. The sentiment is a Welsh Christmas greetings peel-off. The second card was simply put through the big shot in the embossing folder “Winter Wonderland” which came free with a magazine. The two images were stamped with black memento ink – images from the same free gift! – then the “Noel” was cut from a Tonic die. The whole was simply finished with a small red ribbon.
Take care. God bless.
