B-day, X-mas card weekly challenge 3/Friday Sketchers Challenge

FRIDAY SKEETCHERS WEEKLY CHALLENGE

I adore this weeks sketch over on friday sketchers. I have decided to use this sketch for a bunch of christmas cards that I am currently working on. This is my entry, I am not sure where the papers are from, they come from one of my very generous blogging friends. The image of course is one of the beautiful whiff of joy images, still my favourite stamps at the moment. I used my cuttlebug embossing folder for the cirlce and the flowers are of course prima. The star gems inside from paper cellar. The image itself coloured using pro markers.



B-DAY AND X-MAS CARD WEEKLY CHALLENGE
Good morning and hope you are enjoying the start of another week! Can you believe its Monday again already? Well you know what that means, another b-day x-mas card weekly challenge. This weeks its a simple sketch made by me, never done this before so apologies for the poor quality! Thought i'd keep it simple, as the idea of the challenge is to build up a stash of birthday and christmas cards, so we don't wan't to spend too much time on each one. Hope you like it and can do something special with it.


This card is using one of the Elzybels stamps, I love these adorable reindeers.


For anyone who hasn't used these stamps, I have to say I am so impressed with the crips inked images each and every time!
Have used pro markers to colour with some crystal lacquer highlights. Ribbon from Poppicrafts and papers not actually sure, sorry.

Isn't this dragon adorable? It is from a company called Lilac Lemon Designs there are other dragon designs amongst other innovative stamps. I have used papers from the simply elegant PM pack, I love the colours in this. Flowers of course from Prima and the glass baubles from my stash. Images coloured with pro-markers.

I hope you will join us in this weeks challenge. We have a small prize up for grabs so go over to the challenge blog and find out more. Here.


Happy crafting and thank you for taking the time to pop by my blog again. Hugs Linda x
