Cute Christmas what's more fitting then Penny Black stamps for a cute Christmas Card.
I found this Stamp a the back of the stamp drawer and it had yet to see ink if you can believe it.
I don't know why I havn't used it before its so cute and really colours up fast.
I decided to keep it simple and let the image be the focus on this one. Its colored with Copics and the cardstock was embossed with a cuddle bug folder.
Hope you check out the Penny Black November Challenge
Have a great Day, Hugs

I Love when a challenge is anything goes. So much more fun to create when there's no pressure to use certain things especially when the card was made already without them.
This cutie was inspired by the Magnolia Ink Christmas issue which featured a skate card template. It however had to be copied and enlarged to work and I was in a hurry to get started and did not have access to a copier without driving into town. So I sketched out my own template. The paper is from the Bobunny Line Powder Mountain 6x6 paper pad and is used on the skate and also paper pieced as Tilda's sweater and hat. I added the swirly from a DooHickie die and some Martha Stewart punched snoflakes The doilly on top is from Couture Creations.
This was a DT project for Forget Me Not Scrapbooking in November and i'm also entering it in The Tilda's Town Challenge #28 Anything Goes
Check out the fabulous cards everyone else made to as well as the DT.

I've been working on this easel card in little bits and pieces all week. It was one of those cards that you have to keep adding stuff to because it just doesn't feel right so it might be a tad bit over done. I don't know if it really feels right even now but I ran out of room to add anything else so its done! I've decided to enter it in the Flower Power Challenge at Papertake Weekly .
I used paper from BoBunny's Powder Mountain Line and the Stamp is from Whimsy.
This is a really nice sentiment stamp from Stampavie that I bought last year and had never used until now.
I tried a little different technique with her hair than I use on the Tilda's hair to make it look more like real hair.
Thanks for stopping by have a visit to the challenge blog and check the DT projects.
Hope you're having a great weekend

The theme this week at Cute Card Thursday is Starry Starry Night So I thought this cute little LOTV Stamp would fit the challenge. She is from last years Christmas release. The sentiment is from Penny Black and I thought it suited this image perfectly.
The paper is from Basic Grey's Wassail line, so glad I have a couple pieces left to play with once in a while. Make sure you check out the great inspiration the design team has this week as well as the other entries.
I'm having way to much fun in the craft room making Christmas Cards so there will be many more posts as it seems I finish one card and end up with a couple more ideas to try. Thanks for stopping by

I recently discovered this challenge while searching for new challenges to replace my weekly visits to the since retired Just Magnolia Challenge.The design team has some great ideas.Mid Week Magnolias Challenge this week is Walking in a Winter Wonderland. A fun challenge for me because I love making Christmas cards, it also goes well with my Forget Me Not DT project. Gotta love when you can do two things at once!
This Card features Tilda With Snowheart from last years Christmas release which I coloured with Copics and paper pieced. The tree is an amazing 3-D Die from Dee's Distictively. I found it on Forget Me Not Scrapbookings online shop and had to have it. It was so much fun and so easy to create the 3-D look.
Thats it for tonight, thanks for visiting.

This was the card I came up with for a DT project for Forget Me Not Scrapbooking. It was inspired by the briefest of snowfalls we had a couple of weeks ago.For the front of the card I cut away shapes and then glued Large Martha Stewart punched snowflakes over the corner spaces and the center snowflake is cut with the Memory Box Tivoli Snowflake Die. Tilda is of coarse Mid Winter Tilda from last years Magnolia Christmas Collection. She is coloured with Copics and her clothes are paper pieced to add a little dimension(or to make for less colouring hee hee).
I love the sparkle and airiness of this card only wish the glitter showed in the pic like it does "live".

Well when I decided to take a brief break from the scrap room a couple of months ago I never thought that it would last this long is it really November already. Where did the time go!
I had a busy summer which included lots of riding, a trip to Vancouver Island and of coarse work, but also no creative Mojo. A couple of weeks ago I decided to check out the long lost scrap room and made this card for Thanksgiving here in Canada! and that was all it took mojo was back!
Its taken another little while to re-discover blog land and accept some of the sad changes I've found. Like, Just Magnolia is gone, Penny Black Challenge is now only once a month and many of my favorite bloggers are on vacation as well. At first I was bummed out but then I started searching around and found some new challenge blogs and more amazing bloggers as well. I guess change is good.
I hope you enjoy this card and the rest to follow over the next couple weeks which will be mostly Christmas.
This card features Tilda with Daisy and Mushrooms and paper from Bobunny's Apple Cider Line.
Look forward to visiting your blogs
