Barley There

I am so glad that I had my image coloured well in advance for this challenge.  The weather was horrendous last week.  Four days in a row over 41 C with two of those days reaching 44 C and no air conditioning at home.  It's just so hot, all I did was flop on the couch and watch the tennis.  I was very glad to go to work that week.  

This fortnight challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges as B - Barley there.  So put away all those embellishments, lace etc and go back to the land of simplicity.  My card uses a stamp from the Stampin Up! set "For the Birds".

Thanks for dropping by and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Back to the beginning

It has been a while since I last posted. I was so busy with the lead up to Christmas, I just ran out of time. Then I found out my blog template had been removed and didn't have time to fix that too!  All sorted not, not as swish as the last one, but much better than a blank one.

It is back to the beginning of the alphabet at ABC Challenges.  I can't believe that a year has passed since I joined the team. So much has happened.  So, A is very simple, "Anything Christmas".  This challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and I have used their image Little Penguin Winter - Candy Cane.

Thanks for dropping by.

Hi everyone.  This fortnight we have the theme of R for Reindeers at ABC Christmas Challenges.  I'll be honest, this was a very quick creation.  I coloured the image for S in and only realised at the last minute.  At least I'm all ready to go for the next challenge!

The image is Reindeer Gift by QKR Stampede, one of the sponsors for this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and best of luck!

T is for Transparent

Hi everyone!  I have finally been able to get back on the ABC Christmas Challenges schedule.  I took a break, but ended up with appendicitis, so would have missed the time regardless.  Then my daughter got sick!

This time round the challenge is to include something transparent on your creation.  I have created a recessed window card.  I covered the top of the recess with acetate after stamping it with the children sledging (SU "Welcome Christmas") as my transparent element.  The background stamp is also from SU, "Lovely as a tree".

The photo isn't too crash hot, (this is the best of a bad bunch), but it gets the idea across.

This challenge is sponsored by Stamp Fairy who are offering a $10 voucher to spend at their store.  Good luck to all those who enter!

Thanks for stopping by!

Back to School

I guess for you guys in the northern hemisphere it is time for the kids to return to school after the summer break.  I live down south and this all takes place at the end of January.  Given that, I actually made this card last January for a family who changed schools, to wish them luck.  I saved the card for this challenge at Creatalicious Challenges.

The image is from Stamp Fairy.  Unfortunately I can't find the image on their site to link directly to it and the title I have saved is August08, which doesn't say much!

This challenged is sponsored by Scrappiness Designs and the prize will be a US$6.00 coupon for any purchase at the store!
