Reluctantly i say... Anything Goes

This week at Aud Sentiments Challenge we are sponsored by the wonderful Artistic Sassy Cheryl and I loved colouring in the image I was given.   We were given the theme of Anything goes but i think this fellow lends himself to a christmas card, dont you?  I kept the card quite simple as this image should be the star.. and he was printed up quite big..  so he takes centre stage.. very unlike me to keep things so clean and simple but I like it.   I used a stampin up sentiment stamp with stampin up markers for the know that i care and the rest is copics.  What are you going to do for this challenge... I can see that Im going to be typing up many comments for this one... those anything goes challenges really get people participating!

Non Christmas Colours

How are you all going with Christmas creations, If the Shoe Fits would like to see some NON Christmas colour creations this week... this means NO RED or GREEN.    You would think that is easy right?  I actually kept on reaching for green toned papers... This card started with the glittery embellishments... and then I had to try and work those into flat, matt card stock.. I looked at my stamps for a while and thought... Hmmm emboss.. glitter, overlap... and i went a little bit Tim Holtz... teach me for watching his 12 tags of xmas video's wont it.  Now dont get too excited I did say just a little bit.  I actually really enjoyed the process of double embossing and seeing the effects.  Im not to sure that my colour choices are ideal, I think this would look awesome with vintage papers for the tree.. i may just make another one in browns and the like and less bling.. stay tuned!

Prairie Fairy at Aud Sentiments - Anything Holiday

This challenge at Aud Sentiments is sponsored by Prairie Fairy and i grabbed this image and knew I wanted to use it for a New Year Card.  Now I know this is an odd choice for a card but don't you think this image is just perfect for a Mum or busy women is in need of a relaxing new year!!

Now i just have to remember to post this to a busy Woman, hopefully when she looks at it she will know someone was thinking of her...
So are you ready to jump in on this challenge?
Anything Holiday is our theme
Looking forward to seeing you over at the Challenge Blog

This week at "if the shoe fits" we are after winter themed cards... i always get a bit stuck with winter theme... because for most of the world.. winter means COLD and Christmas but for me it means.. June and fireplaces.. staying inside and not christmas.   I decided to go with Northern Hemisphere Christmas... as I am nearly going to be there for a white christmas... We arrive on the 17th January so we are a few weeks out.. but im sure that that white christmas feel will still be in the air!.. Or I hope it will be.

Pop on over to the challenge blog and have a look at the other DT creations and link up your wonderful work so we can get to have a look and be inspired.  I just finished my DT card for our next challenge and im all excited... I went a little bit Tim Holtz on it... (little bit...)

Aud Sentiments - Anything Holiday

This week at Aud Sentiments we are very happy to be sponsored by Polka Doodles, I absolutely love the image I got to play with.    I got to try colouring a snowman... do you know how hard it is to colour something thats meant to be white!  I even got my sewing machine out and did some stitching, as you can tell im out of practice.. look how crooked that stitching is!
Our theme is challenge is Anything Holiday
You can play with this challenge as much as you like, I however decided to go for Christmas.
I quite like that this card isnt the normal green and red that I would normally use.  I even managed to dig into the stash and grab dew drops for the bling.. I had the right colours luckily.

So what are you going to do for this challenge, which holiday are you going to choose?

Be sure to head on over to the Aud Sentiments Blog and link up your creations, I look forward to seeing them.
