Sliding Into Christmas

Afternoon All.
Today sees the start of the new challenge at The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog, and this time round we would like to see 'Sentiments' on your cards. As this is our last challenge before Christmas, it will run for slightly longer than usual - until the 7th January 2012, to hopefully give you plenty of time to join us. We are being ponsored by Crafty Emma's Store - Emma has very kindly given a £10 Gift Voucher (P&P not included) as a prize to one of our Winners to spend in her shop. Our Digi Image Sponsor this time round is the very talented and creative Heather Ellis. Heathers work is inspirational and there are lots of wonderful images to buy in her store, so why not pay a visit . In addition to the Challenge Prizes, Cutie Pie will also be running a CHRISTMAS CANDY DRAW for all our followers. The Draw will end at the stroke of Midnight on the 31st December, so don't forget to enter using Mr Linkys button which is on the Side Bar of the main blog, along with a picture of the candy!
For my card, I have used a Hanglar image, and made my sentiment into a sliding snowball - I do so love making this style of card.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Crafty Boots - Christmas
Cupcake Crafts - Sparkles, Shines, Gleams, Glints and/or Glitters...
Incy Wincy Designs - Christmas plus brads (the trees are brads)

Rock 'n' Roll

Afternoon All.
I hope you are all having a good weekend.
It's time once again for a new challenge at Here Come The Boys, and this time round we would like to see your 'Rock & Roll' inspired creations. This challenge is our last this side of Christmas so will run longer than usual till 6th January 2012, so you should have plenty of time to come on over and join in the fun.
I decided I would do something different from stamping this time round, so I used a decoupage sheet from Crafts U Print, which I have then adapted to suit my own needs. There is a link on my sidebar for Crafts U Print, and you will fnd thousands of printable sheets on offer there - something for every occasion.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Totally Papercrafts - anything but Christmas
Crop Stop - music
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Thanks for looking,

Hugs Sharon x

Charming Snowman

Afternoon All,
Just thought I'd do a quick post and share one of the snowman cards that the ladies made in class this week. It is another one of my favourite LOTV stamps, coloured with my trusty ProMarkers. The backing papers are from Craft Creations, and the snowflakes are cut using a combination of Spellbinders and Marianne Design dies. The charm is one from my shop. Just a quick reminder that I also have the new individual FlexMarkers in stock at the mo, for the bargain price of £2.50 each, with free UK postage on orders over £5.00.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Crafty Catz - colours of Christmas with sparkle
Fairy Fun Fridays - beat the winter blues
Stampin' With The Dragon - anything goes Christmas
Winter Wonderland - Christmas / winter birthday
By The Cute And Girly - let it snow
I Love ProMarkers - snowman / snowflakes
Creative Card Crew - monochromatic
Oldie But Goodie - Christmas but no red or green
Craft Your Passion - 'Tis the season
Pollycraft - Christmas fun
The Crazy Challenge - stars and/or snowflakes
Gingerloft - winter or Christmas
Paper Sundaes - winter wonderland
Stamptacular Sunday - anything Christmas

Thanks so much for looking, I'm off to pack the car now as I am doing a Christmas street market this evening to try and sell some of my cards - wish me luck :o), I think it's going to be cold!!!
