Digi Choosday Challenge week 11

The challenge for the DT this week at Digi Choosday at Polka Doodles is "Happy New Year".
I have made a card for my Sister who I very rarely see over the Christmas holidays as she works in a hotel bar, so is ALWAYS working.
The image I have used is the Fredericka Debutante Digistamp  which is available as an instant download. She is coloured with my Graph 'It Markers. The papers are from the Girls Hoot Download Bundle which is also available as an instant download. I have distressed the edges of the papers and used a distress ink around everything, and then added some faux stitching. I have also added a few die cuts, some lace, rolled flowers and a sentiment.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish all visitors to my blog a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. I really appreciate the time you all take to visit my blog, and even more, those who leave lovely comments for me.

Digi Choosday challenge week 10

This week over at Digi Choosday at Polka Doodles the challenge for the DT is "Christmas Birthdays"
As it was my wonderful Husbands birthday on the 21st I made this card for him.
The image is Jock by Emma Canning and is coloured with Graph 'It Markers. The papers are from the Boys Hoot Download Bundle. I've used a distress ink around the edges of everything and added faux stitching. I've also pierced the card around the image to give a more realistic stitch effect. The banners are a from the Tattered Lace Decorative Bunting die and the sentiments from the Stampin Up Hello, Lovely and Bring on The Cake stamp sets.

The challenge for you should you wish to join is "Anything Goes"

Studio 12 Christmas bunting

I've been really looking forward to putting this up in the house as I love it so much. Is that vain to like your own make? lol
 This started out life as plain MDF triangles from the MDF man. I knew straight away what I wanted to do with it. All the papers and embellishments are from the fabulous Studio 12 CD-rom Picknix Collection 2 Gingerbread Twist. I glued all the papers on and used a distress ink around the edges to give it an aged look. I then added some faux stitching with a white opaque pen. I then cut out all the embellishments and also aged them with the distress ink and glued in place. I threaded string through to hang it as I thought ribbon would look odd with it having an aged look. It is now in pride of place behind the bar in our party room. Here are a few close up shots.

I will treasure this and it will be brought out every year.

Polka Doodleschallenge week 50

The challenge for the DT over at Polka Doodles this week is to make something for the Christmas table. For my project I have made some place cards.
I used papers and embellishments from the A Home for Christmas CD Collection. I layered 2 papers in a graphics program and added a black border to make the top one pop out. I added the names in the program and then printed them out and printed out some of the trees to cut out and put in place with 3D foam.
Come and join us in the challenge as for you it is "Anything Goes". You could win some great prizes.
