Some more cards for challenges over on Docrafts
The top two are for an A-Z of Christmas challenge where you have to make 26 christmas cards, one for each letter of the alphabet
The other two are for a Forever Friends challenge.
The blue one is my challenge which is to follow my card idea although the layout angle can be rotated, turned or whatever as long as the basic elements are there.
The red one is the previous challenge which was a shaped card incorporating some gem as a birthstone, I couldn't decide between Red for Ruby or Green for Emerald so used both as they seem to work quite well together.

Thank you to Janet for this.

We all have our own Christmas traditions but mine are

My kids must have new pj's for christmas & on chistmas day i'm the only one allowed in the kitchen to make dinner, kitchen is MY domain & if you don't want your fingers to end up in the stuffing leave me alone lol. To pop though replenishing my glass of wine is classed as VERY HELPFUL but to gve "advice" like "don't you think you should do this that way" or to randomly stir things is classed as BLOODY ANNOYING lol

Should I find my one & only "christmas dinner cooking" picture I will add it later but if not, count yourselves lucky you don't have to see me lol

8 bags of Snowballs for £1.20 can't be that bad.

This is the PB Missed You stamp. Backing paper, buttons & bow from PM Verde & Red Hot Capsule Collections.
NOTE TO SELF :- Check which picture has uploaded BEFORE writing description!!!
another couple of promarker attempts.

The bottom one is for a Chocolate Tilda Challenge and the top is a hallowwen one, simply cos the Tilda looked so cute & was crying out to be used.

Papers, bows & buttons on the top card are all from PM Sunshine & Aqua Capsule Collections. Large buttons are from a charity shop.
On the bottom card the backing paper is actually an A4 subject divider cut down to size, it's a pale biscuit colour but looks yellow in the photo. Image is Tilda with Newspaper, kindly donated by a fellow crafter again. Wide ribbon and large button is my own & narrow ribbon and small buttons are from the Heather Capsule Collection.

These cards were for a challenge over on Docrafts. The purple card is coloured with Sakuras & the blue & green ones are coloured using Promarkers. Papers used are from the PM Capsule Collcections, Heather, Aqua & Verde. Buttons & ribbons from my vast collection of both, no ideas where they're from originally. Images on the blue & purple cards were donated by fellow crafters & the green card is a Penny Black stamp called Missed You.
