Christmas Welcome

I deliberately left off any snow on this Christmas scene as here in New Zealand we celebrate Christmas in the middle of summer.  Although a lot of my cards feature the more traditional snow scenes, sometimes it is more relevant to do a more summery Christmas card!

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Sassy Studio Designs - Sketch

ABC Christmas - Something Festive (wreath, tree, baubles)
http://abcchristmaschallenge.blogspot.co.nz/2014/09/s-for-something-festive.html

I have used a wood effect paper from Kaisercraft to carry the image out further.  The image is from Sassy Studio Designs and has been coloured with copic markers with the addition of some Stickles on the trees.  I also added a peel-off sticker on the diagonal, a foam tree embellishment, some Stickles on the tree as baubles and some glitter domes.

Creative Bug Digitals - Child's Play Midway

Halfway through another month already!  So, it is timely to remind you of the challenge at Creative Bug Digitals.  Here is some mid-way inspiration for you:

To see more inspiration cards and check the challenge details, head on over to Creative Bug Digitals.

I have created my card for my 16 year old son.  He is very particular about owls - they have to look natural.  So the inspiration for this card was to keep it as natural looking as possible so I have a few autumn colour leaves as well as the wood effect in the background.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

I have used a wood effect paper from Kaisercraft for the background.  The image is from Creative Bug Digitals and is called Hooty Hoo and can be found on this page Here.  The leaves have been cut from glitter cardstock by DCWV using dies from Marianne's Designs and Memory Box.

It is time for a new challenge at Scribbles Designs.  This time we are counting sheep!  We would like to see some sheep in your creations.  To help with inspiration, here is my card:


For further details of the challenge and to see my fellow DT inspiration cards, head over to Scribbles Designs and be inspired!  We would love to see you join in a sheep themed challenge.

I have used a paper from Kaisercraft that has a bit of a mixed media feel to it.  The image and sentiment are both from Scribbles Designs.  The image is called Mr Wool Counting and the sentiment is Funny How Quote.
