Peace be with you

I often have good intentions to enter challenges and one that I'm guilty of not entering as often as I should is the Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge.  I was sad to see that this week is the last sketch challenge and I look forward to the new challenges that they will be bringing us from time to time.

My card is very clean and simple, using the set Yonder Star as well as a centre from Dainty Doilies.  Everything is stamped in Versafine Majestic Blue, the centre and the sentiment are popped up on some Pinflair glue and I've added a few touches of Ice Stickles.

I'm also entering my card for:
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Catch the bug - holiday/seasonal
Hotshot Crafts - clean and simple

This week the Less is More Challenge has the theme of drinks.  Chrissie, imitation is a form of flattery!  I've noticed several offset circle frames recently and really like the effect, so I've made this card which is very similar to one of your gorgeous creations!  The stamp and sentiment are Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque).  I've coloured with watercolour markers and added Glossy Accents to my glass.  I noticed yesterday that CAS-ual Fridays have a 10 minute holiday card challenge, teaming up with Paulina's 10 minute craft dash,  which I thought was a fun idea.  So I set my kitchen timer and rattled this card off in just under 8 minutes!  Of course the Glossy Accents still needs time to dry.

The weather outside is ghastly, wet, wet, wet.  I have endured the worst year of my life.  But I am determined that my glass is full, not empty and I'm raising my glass (metaphorically, it's a bit early!) to all my fellow bloggers and wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Cheers!

In a row

This week the challenge at Less is More is In a Row.  I had a request for some last minute Christmas cards and this is what I came up with:  Memory Box tree stamp, Stickles for the tree lights, a double row scored above and below the picture and a Hero Arts sentiment.  Really pleased with this one... wish I could get a better photo in this winter gloom.
I'm also entering my card for:
Simon Says - what's your favourite - my favourite stamps are tree stamps, I have a forest of them!  Also love Stickles
Charisma Cardz - Christmas makes
C.R.A.F.T. - Winter
Cupcake Craft - Merry Christmas
