I have used a scrapbook paper for the background.  The matting is green cardstock.  I also used offcuts of two christmas papers - at least one of them is from Kaisercraft although I'm not sure about the polka dot one.  The image is from Sami Stamps and is coloured with copic markers.  I added some shine with some Glossy Accents and some faux stitching with a Distress Marker.  The digital sentiment is from Desert Diva.

Christmas Candy Cane

Where has the year gone?  It seems like it has just flown this year.  I hope you have your Christmas cards all created - I have thanks to being on the DT for CHNC Extra!  Speaking of which, if you need some inspiration for your remaining christmas cards you can find it here.  And then come back and link up your christmas creations.

As usual, we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.


I have used an image from Bugaboo Stamps called JJ Christmas - Candy Cane.


I also used a striped paper from a christmas paper pad, some red cardstock for matting and some red gems from Rosie's Studio.

Digital Stamps

This one was an easy one for me as I more often than not use digital stamps - so much more versatile than rubber and acrylic stamps.

Dottie is baking

My second favourite colour is orange so when I see an inspiration picture with orange in it that is what I pull out of the picture!  My favourite Bugaboo images are the Dottie ones so I was able to combine two favourites here:

With a little help from my friends

I was originally looking for an image of a reindeer or elf but came across this gorgeous image of Mrs Claus so used that instead.  It looks like she has found a teddy bear that Santa misplaced.

Mirror Mirror

This card took a long time to make - mainly because I couldn't find where I had put the mirror card!  It also was the hardest to photograph!

Ornaments

After almost getting up to date with my cards for the month long challenge at Beccy's Place, I have fallen behind again!  I started a new job on Monday and have been struggling a bit with the extra hours and new responsibilities.  I feel I have made some progress this evening with 2 cards completed!

Easel Card

I finished this one last night but had trouble photographing it.  I decided to try again this morning with different light and have ended up with a much clearer photo.

Penny's Paper Crafty - Christmas
http://pennyschallenges.blogspot.co.nz/2016/11/welcome-to-pennys-challenge-304.html

I have used a paper from a christmas paper pad by Teresa Collins.  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place and have been coloured with copic markers.  I found the snowflakes in a dollar store yesterday when I went to buy some double sided tape.  I raised the sentiment up using mount tape so that it could act as a stopper.
