Christmas Chaos -Day Four

No patterned paper this time - just some embossed cardstock.  I'm pleased to say that I finally completed all the challenges for the Christmas Chaos week - chaos being a particularly apt word for my week!  I work four days this week then I hopefully will have a bit of time to catch up on everything - including the housework!




I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

The embossed cardstock is from a pad by American Crafts - all christmas themed.  The image and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps and coloured with copic markers.  Matting is red cardstock.  I also added some glitter enamel dots.

Christmas Chaos - Day Three

Yet another christmas tag finished although I could still do with a few more yet!

Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
http://craftyourpassionchallenges.blogspot.co.nz/2016/12/challenge-341-always-anything-goes.html

I have recycled a swing tag that was attached to swimming togs that I purchased recently.  I bought two pairs of togs with four tags attached to each so I still have 5 left to use!  I covered this one with some striped paper from a christmas paper pad - this piece was an offcut from another card so not entirely sure of the brand but suspect it may be Kaisercraft as they are large enough papers to have a piece this size left over.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps, coloured with copic markers and Kindy Glitz and then fussy cut.  I added puffy alphabet stickers to spell out XMAS and also added some organza ribbon to the top.

Christmas Chaos - Day Six

This image is definitely an old one as it is now retired!  The paper I have had for some time - just hadn't had the inspiration to use it before now.  Inevitably I end up with one or two papers left in each paper pad that take a long time to get used!
