Now, as it is Monday, it's time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy. The theme is distressing, and as you may know, this is something I love to do. This week we are sponsored by:
I have made an easel card and used a wonderful image - Chelsea - by Aspire to Thrive. I paper pieced her top and inked the card with Victorian Velvet distress inks. To keep with the distressed feel, I made a flower from three circles of net and used crackle paint on the edges of the card on the base of the easel. Please check out the other wonderful DT cards on the blog and I hope you can play along with us.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Gingerloft - distressing.

Well, it's Tuesday and time for another challenge at Creative Craft. The theme is anything goes and as usual runs for two weeks, so I hope you will have a chance to join in. This week, we are sponsored by:
Now, onto my makes. The first is a gift bag, which uses the image Bah Humbug by Stitchy bear.
I also made this card:
I was a bit self indulgent with this one, as I used a lot of my favourite things at the moment (no doubt they will change soon!) - purple, wild orchid flowers, lace and my distress inks. The images and sentiment are by Penny Black and I inked the lace to tie in with the colour scheme.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges: Allsorts - Anything goes and Penny black at Allsorts - Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (I have many of my favourite things here and so beautiful to me).
I still have a horrible cold, so I'm hoping I'm not going to give it to anyone else as it won't be fun being ill over Christmas. Daisy is starting to get excited and wants the Christmas tree lights on all day, which is fine but as it is sunny here, you can't see them very well. It's quite hard for her to understand that there won't be snow here on Christmas Day and that we may go swimming. Even I can't quite get my head around that!

and they are giving to the winner a voucher of £10 to spend in the LOTV store. Isn't that great?This week we would like to see Christmas cards in non-traditional colours. The DT used some new digi images that are now available in the Aspire to Thrive store. There is a lovely cute penguin which would be fab for any last minute cards, but, of course, I had to make things difficult for myself so I chose a different image! I have used a lovely teddy. To make it a bit more festive, I made a turkey out of fimo to add in the tray. The paper is by Basic Grey and the snowflakes come from a die cut glittered sheet. The lace, pin and flowers are by Wild Orchid.
I would like to enter this into Simon Says Stamp - Christmas but no red or green and Cupcake Craft Challenge - non-traditional Christmas.

I have used one of their lovely images of a female elf. I printed it four times and used a circle punch. I then stuck them together so it is 3D and added a hanging loop. I inked the background green and used traditional colours for a change. Please go to the blog and see all the wonderful makes from the rest of the DT.
