Colored with Copics, Flocking added to the trim on her boots, white glitter as snow/ice added to various places, Glossy Accents and a little Stickles here and there too.  The snow flakes were punched, the sentiment is a very old one from my stash.

Anything But A Card

Today is the start of a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and the theme is:  Anything But a Card.


We have a fabulous sponsor Lacy Sunshine A Crafter's Candy Shoppe, this is where you will find so many charming characters and a large variety of images to choose from.

I decided to make a hanging ornament for this challenge using Holly Flower Pot Pretty

I hope you'll come join in the challenge and share your creations with us.  The team enjoys visiting your blogs as we gain inspiration along the way from you.

Colored with Copics, Glossy Accents added, some Stickles, Glitter and gems.  The ornament is double sided so I colored 2 of the images and cut them out, adhered both  to 120 lb cs embossed with a snowflake Cuttlebug folder.  I used double sided tape to adhere the 2 images and the 2 backings, trimmed with a silver Krylon pen added the ribbon to hang.

Something to Die For

Incy Wincy begins a new challenge today and the theme for this week is:  "Something to Die For" or in other words Use a die in your creation.

I hope you'll come join in the challenge sharing your creations with us.

Colored with Copics, white glitter is used for snow/ice, stars and snowflakes are punched and the cat is a die cut.

She is one of Heather's newest images and it was love at first site for me, I just couldn't wait to color her, as it is such a fun image.

Drop by Lacy Sunshine's a Crafter's Candy Shoppe and you will find a large variety wonderful characters (images) to choose from, it has quickly become  my favourite place to shop with so many adorable little characters.  She has just created a new line called Ethereal Enchantresses that are so different, charming and beautiful.

Colored with Copics, I used a glue pen to the tree adding white glitter, to the garland I added white flocking and Stickles on top of that the 3rs one has antique gold glitter with Stickles on top  of that.  The ornaments are topped with Glossy Accents, then a few gems.  The cat, mistletoe and border are die cuts.

Rory's Letter to Santa

There is another new challenge that begins today at Come And Get It, the DT were asked to make a card and anything but a card for this challenge.  I decided to make a fridge magnet to bring a little of the festive spirit into the kitchen.
Lacy Sunshine A Crafter's Candy Shoppe is our fabulous sponsor for this challenge.  They have such a wonderful variety of characters to choose from that are too fun to color and create with.   This is one of Heather Valentin's   (owner/artist) newer images for this year, her name is Rory's Letter to Santa

I hope you will come and join the challenge sharing your creations with us and it could be your turn to be the winner.

I printed Rory (image) out on Copic paper, colored with Copics, then using Modge Podge adhered the finished piece to white scratch board, adding another 2 coats to the top to act as a sealer.  I used a Krylon silver pen to outline/frame it in and glued a magnet to the backside.
