DCM Four of the Best Challenge
The challenge at DCM is to use 1 or more of their favourite themes for the year, these were cut, frames, ribbons and buttons.
I have stamped, coloured and cut out the Tilda and the frame is made with the Wizard Nestabilities. I didn't have any matching buttons and ribbons so I cut out my own buttons with the Cricut (George Cartridge) and used raffia instead of ribbon. I embossed the strip of card with the Cuttlebug.
The card is much nicer colours than it looks in the photo but unfortunately it's another horrible gray day here.

As it's Xmas there is an open theme at Wednesday Stamper this week. I have stamped Edwin and Tilda's bench and coloured them with Prismacolors and Sansador. I cut the stars with the Cricut.
I hope you all had a great Christmas.

Kerry's Xmas Book
For RE homework Kerry (aged 13) was told to make a book about the 1st Xmas for nursery children. She decided to do this book using the Bind It All and the Cricut. She had hardly any help at all except with the Bind It All and this is what she came up with. I think it's fab especially the comedy camels which she wouldn't let me put eyelashes and lipstick on!!!

TMTA Mosaic Challenge
The challenge at TMTA this week is mosaic, hopefully this paper will count as mosaic. I have stamped and coloured the Tilda with Prismacolor and Sansador and added a touch of glitter, 3 brads and a Dymo greeting. I am going to try and post this on the TMTA blog but its wordpress so wish me luck!!!

Final Christmas Card
This is the last Xmas card I am making this year. It is a group card for a forum which I belong to. I have used BG papers and another Tilda stamp and coloured with Prismacolors and Sansador. As you can tell by the photo it is another horrible rainy, grey day here today.
I'm off to cut a slot in a piece of card so I can check my Xmas cards for postage size which I hope will save me a long time in the PO queue later today - I can dream!! Still got a few more to write but at least I can post a some.

New Technique For Me
I have been trying out something new today, using my pencil crayons with Sansador. I love this technique and I find it a lot easier than watercolouring. I would like to send my thanks to Annie (Ink'n'Rubba) for all her help, she has given me lots of great tips. I have use done of my new Magnolia stamps which eventually arrived this morning. I have used Liquid Applique on his clothes and added glitter to his beard for a bit of sparkle.

Arty Girlz Ribbon Challenge
The challenge at Arty Girlz this week is to use ribbon or fibres on your card. This is one of my new Tildas which came last week which I have stamped and watercoloured. I was going to add an Xmas sentiment but I think that you could also use it for a winter birthday card.

Arty Girlz Bling Challenge #8
I stamped and coloured this Tilda last night so when I saw the challenge at Arty Girlz this morning I thought this would be ideal to use with a few sparkly gem stones for the bling and there is glitter on the candle and cake but it doesn't show up.

DCM 'and Cut' Challenge
The challenge at DCM this week is to use something which is cut by hand on your card. I stamped and watercoloured the Tilda and then cut it out (hope this counts). The backing panel is mounted onto the card straight, it's the lines on the backing paper which make it look crooked!

Scrap Dribbles Sketch Oct 27
I have based this card on the weekend sketch at Scrap Dribbles and have used another of my new Tildas. I decided to go all girly and use pink, not my usual colours but I am really pleased with the result. The card is white and there are touches of glitter on the cake but the light is so bad here it doesn't show up.
Beate Weekend Sketch #25
This Z fold card is based on the weekend sketch over at Beates and is Kerry's birthday card (she loved it) This is the 1st card I have made using my new Tilda stamps. We are just going to Stockport to the Hobbycraft there and to look in some other shops, I think Kerry is hoping to spend some of her birthday money!
