Sparkles 5th Anniversary - Anything Goes

Been very busy getting ready to move house but recently I did a special commission for one of my customers who doesn't celebrate Christmas but Winter Solstice so thought I would show a couple of those as my DT make of "Anything Goes" to celebrate our 5th Anniversary over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge. I have not been a DT member very long but I am proud to be part of something obviously so well supported.

This card is from Pollyanna Pickering Christmas Moments with die cuts from Signature Dies ivy corner from Joanna Sheen in kraft card.

 I also made this beautiful card with the Christmas Moments CD. I have used hessian ribbon from Wilkos and lovely brown buttons which match the kraft card. I have also added glitter to the image to make the holly berries sparkle.

Thanks for viewing my blog. Hope you join in the challenge. The prize this time is a $10 voucher from Di's Digi Downloads.

Blue & Silver

Not long now to Christmas and the December theme for Gruffies and Guests Challenge chosen by our lovely DT member Vickie is "Blue and Silver". The picture I chose is from the House Mouse Triple CD and features a house mouse in a penguin family. I was excited when I saw this as I have been a little bit in love with the John Lewis Monty the Penguin advert. In addition to this earlier in the year Stephen and I did a zoo keeper experience day at Dudley Zoo and fed the penguins. Here we are with hand reared Elliot the penguin.

For my card I have made a small a6 sized card with use of silver mirror board with matt & layer, silver ribbed ribbon from American crafts and used some wire to lace blue, white, silver sequins and beads for embellishment.  Of course I added my obligatory sparkles! It's all been  a bit crazy as we are in the middle of getting ready to move house. As I write almost all of my craft stuff is in boxes which is soul destroying as I'd rather been creating then packing it away!

Our beautiful challenge creator and leader Shaz has been so generous and donated the prize of these (pictured) lovely Gruffies Stamps and 10 decoupage sheets by Joanna Sheen!
