Go Team

Very last minute with this card for the progressive challenge at Imagine That.  Besides the major internet problems I have had for the past two weeks (now fixed thankfully), I had a real struggle with this one.  We don't have American Football in this country so it stumped me a bit.  I decided to go with the team shirt and the flag and my son's swimming team as inspiration.  The colours are his club colours and I used a water themed paper.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

Imagine That - Progressive Challenge for January
http://imaginethatdigistamp.blogspot.co.nz/2015/01/januarys-sotm-challenge-freebie.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The images are from Imagine That as part of the progressive challenge.  I coloured using copic markers.  The matting is yellow cardstock.  I also added three clear rhinestones to represent water droplets.

Let's Chill

I finally completed a card using the fourth image in the Deedee's Digis set for January. The pressure was on a bit to complete the cards with the internet hassles I've had being sorted a couple of days ago and having to try and catch up on e-mails etc!

I have used a paper from Kaisercraft for this card.  The paper has an embossed texture to it.  The image and sentiment are from Deedee's Digis and have been coloured with copic markers.  I also added Glossy Accents to the snowman.  The snowflake has been cut from glitter cardstock using a die that came free with a magazine.  I embellished the centre of the snowflake with a pearl.

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

I have now created with three of the four images in the January Digi of The Month from Deedees Digis.  Hopefully, I can also compete the fourth one in time!

I have used a black and grey harlequin print paper for the background.  I added some web ribbon over the top - just to prove it can be used for cards other than Halloween!!  The image and sentiment are from Deedee's Digis.  I inked the edge of the sentiment once die-cut using Black Soot Distress Ink.  The ribbon is a satin ribbon from American Crafts.  I also added some pearls that I coloured black with copic marker 100.

December

Not yet - but I have finally got around to creating my calendar page for December.  Now I only have to finish November and it is complete!

Brown Sugar - Valentines
http://brownsugarchallenge.blogspot.co.nz/2015/01/challenge-130-valentines.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The paper has a bit of a foil effect to it.  The image is one from the set for the Deedees Digi of the Month Challenge.  I've printed out all four - not sure if I'll manage to complete a card with each of them or not!  I have matted with glitter cardstock from DCWV and also die-cut a heart from it with a Marianne's die.  The tag embellishment is a die-cut from the Kaisercraft pad - and then I tied a piece of twine through the hole.

Love You Beary Much

A beary Valentines card:
