I have kept this one relatively simple as I liked the look.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Crafty Gals Corner - Add A Heart
The Paper Shelter - Embossing

I have used a pre-made card blank.  The image is from The Paper Shelter and coloured with copic markers.  I embossed some white cardstock using an embossing folder and set the image on top.  I added a chipboard hear and matted the embossing.

Gift box card

I'm a bit late in posting for the midway for the challenge at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up due to being unwell the past few days.  But I'm here now with a reminder that this month we are being sponsored by Sparkle n Sprinkle.

For my midway card, I have used an image from Sparkle n Sprinkle called Holiday Cheer Set and papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.


The inside of the card has a box for adding treats to:

I also used some acetate which I embossed for the window of the box.  The word "Christmas" is a sticker.  I added a pink bow and some silver snowflake ribbon.

I followed a tutorial from Beccy's Place for the basic card shape.

With Sympathy

I don't have any sympathy cards ready made at the moment - and usually when I need one is when work is really busy. 

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
The Outlawz Saturday Challenge -

I have used a subtle patterned paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from A Creative Need and the sentiment from Sugar Paw Scraps.  I added some colour to the edges of the image and sentiment with a copic marker.  I also used copic markers to add some pastel colour to the image.  I also used some narrow white satin ribbon.

I am a bit of a stretch on one of these challenges!  But when I think of chin up buttercup, I feel that there is nothing better to cheer someone up than spending some quality time with your best friend.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
The Outlawz Friday Challenge - Card with Red and Best Friends
Stella Says Sketch - Sketch
Catch The Bug - Chin Up Buttercup (figure that time with a friend will cheer someone up!)

I have used a couple of  papers from a journalling paper pad by Prima.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is coloured with copic markers.  I added some pennants die-cut from offcuts of cardstock.  The sentiment has been die-cut.

Fall Hello

Although the season is called Autumn here (and starts in March), this image seems to suit the word fall better with the falling leaves!

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
QKR Stampede - Use fall colours

I have used a paper from a paper pad by MultiCraft.  The image is from QKR Stampede and is coloured with copic markers.  Matting is metallic cardstock.  I added some leaves that I bought several years ago and hadn't as yet used!  I joined the leaves with a tiny pearl from Ultimate Crafts.

Thinking Of You

After waking up to sun and black clouds, the day has settled.  The black clouds seemed to have turned to grey clouds - so rain isn't totally out of the question still!  The sun has lost some of it's warmth though too.   I had to go to the dentist this morning and have come home and crafted as I didn't feel like doing anything else while my mouth was still numb!

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
A Star In My Pocket - 2 or more dies
Creative Craft Cottage - Thinking Of You

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Star Stampz and is coloured with copic markers.  Matting is green pearlescent cardstock.  The sentiment is one I typed up myself on the computer.  I also added a couple of die-cuts - the corner one is from Spellbinders but not sure about the flower.  I added a pearl to the centre of the flower.
