Bubbles Just For You

This image is meant to be a Halloween one but I thought done in pinks it would be a pretty spa type image!  I'm pleased with the effect:

Seems A Little Sketchy - Sketch
http://seemsalittlesketchy.blogspot.co.nz/2014/10/76-mygrafico.html

I have used three papers from My Grafico which I edged with silver peel-off stickers.  The image is also from My Grafico.  The sentiment is from Sans Designs.  Colouring is copic markers and Stickles on the bubbles.  My two shapes are circle and rectangle.  I added four gemstones to the points where the top two layers of papers cross.

Arrgh

My daughter gave me this pirate ribbon for my birthday and I hadn't had an excuse to use it.  Decided to wrap it around my tag!

I have used an image from LEJ Designs along with a sentiment printed on ribbon.  I used three different papers from a paper pack from Trimgym.  The two shapes I used are the tag shape and the square shape for the image.  I used four gold pearls as embellishments.  Matting is blue textured cardstock from DCWV.

Have you been good this year!?

CHNC - Forgotten or Never Used
http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/chnc-challenge-199-use-something.html

I have used three papers from a Christmas paper pack by Trimgym.  The sentiment that I have used also comes from Trimgym.  The image is from Dr Digi and is coloured with copic markers.  I matted with some pale green textured cardstock from DCWV.  I added some oval shaped rhinestones as my embellishments - these have been lurking in a container in my stash for a number of years without being used!

May Your Days Be Merry and Bright

A sentiment as the focal point of the card makes a lovely change from an image:

CHNC - Something forgotten
http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/chnc-challenge-199-use-something.html

I have used a paper from my stash - been there a long time and almost forgotten about!  The matting is green textured cardstock from DCWV.  The focal image is a sentiment from Digi Stamp Boutique.  I added some green satin ribbon and a heart shaped button (was a pale green but I coloured it with a darker green copic).
