CBD Food and Drink

Hello again, 

Today brings us to a new Challenge for Crafting by Designs, we would love you to join in our challenge, we have one fabulous sponsors this week Doctor Digi will be giving the lucky winner their choice of 2 Digi stamps from their store.

PRIZE 2 Digi Stamps

I have started off my New Years Christmas card collection, colouring Christmas Chris LINK, dressed in a reindeer costume pinching some Christmas Pud, adding some kindy glitz to his nose and the cherries on the pudding. A simple top edger die cut sentiment and stamped quote added to finish the card off.

I have used up some of my many Christmas scraps after coming across a brilliant idea from Heather of Wire Wrapture the strip used on this card is a mixed bag of leftover patterned paper and I will admit that I thought I had ensured all edges were squared off but must have missed one which then put the next couple of pieces out of square… I had a lovely time creating extra strips using both mixed paper pads and then some where I have stuck to the one designer pad. I think I may have made a bigger mess making these strips, I was supposed to be tidying my desktop…. And I can just imagine using this idea for many other types of cards….

This challenge is open until January 15th, you can add your project by using the Linky tool over at Crafting by Designs. Please be sure to link your project back to us.

Final Christmas cards for 2018

Hello again,

 Well I didn't anticipate that it would take me this long to make a new blog post in December, but with all the goings on and attempting to avoid the heat box I craft in during the hot summer weather today is the first time I have managed to find some time to blog. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year, Sydney is already on countdown for the big fireworks display, people already staking out their vantage points. Christmas Day down under was a hot day very much like Santa in the scene on the two cards below and there is no apparent end to the hot summers days we are having which are unusually hot for our area.

I have been making some changes to my blog in the wake of Google+ closing down in the next few months and as that was the only comment system available when I started my blog, in a simple click to swap to the now available blogger commenting system all previous comments have vanished, never to be seen again.

Two final Christmas cards which went to my city physio and local acupuncturist, this was my bank tellers favourite card last year and she has spent all of this year trying to find the red rubber version of the Aussie Santa from Make It Crafty which she found in November at a craft show.

Here are my cards:-

What I used:-
White card blanks
Cloud papers from 6" paper pads
Distress Oxide ink background (Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans)
Kaisercraft sand and boardwalk paper
Sugar Crystals Stickles
Ultimate Crafts Sydney Harbour and Opera House dies
Scrap papers, grey, off white (metallic sheen), sandstone and Christmas patterned
Make It Crafty Aussie Santa Digi
Beccy's Place Sentiment stamp (Aussie Christmas)
Fiskars corner rounder
Faber-Castell and Derwent pencils
Wink of Stella (liberally over beard and tinnie)
Clear embossing ink
Black embossing powder
