Just Birthday/Christmas card challenge wk 24 - TANJA's sketch

Monday morning again, i hope you all had a wonderful Mothering Sunday, and were treated like the Queen!

I can hardly believe another week has passed, it will soon be christmas ladies. So with another week gone, its time for another challenge over at the Birthday/Christmas Card challenge. This week is such a fabulous sketch by our Tanja.

I have made a card for Mum. Hope you like it. This is one of my favourite sugar nellie stamps ever, coloured as per usual with my pro-markers. I have used papers from the DCWV Nursery stack.

The flowers are from the prima espirit range with rose bud centres. Swirls are a sizzix bigz die highlighted with stickles.

The border is another one of the Martha Stewart punches. This is the lattice arch, one of my favourites.

It would be good to have as many of you join our challenge this week as possible.

We have this fabulous Magnolia stamp up for grabs. Isn't tilda looking gorgeous here? As they say you have to be in it to win it, so come on join our challenge this week.

I had a very productive Friday afternoon of crafting, and these are some of the quick cards i made, hope you will enjoy them.

This is using one of the fabulous downloads from Sally-Ann. I love her images, they are all fabulous and available from her Grab-a-doodle website.

One of the fabulous Pollycraft stamps. I love this adorable images by the fabulously talented Paula. Papers were freebies in one of the Making Cards magazine.

I adore the downloads available from Pink Petticoat too. This is one of the fabulous dinosaurs. Coloured again with my pro-markers. I love their cute faces! Papers are Basic Grey and the core-dinations. Ribbon and gems from stash.

Your cards are fantastic Linda, you have been very busy! I will try to play along, love the idea of making a christmas card every week but don't ever find the time. I will try though!
I am starting decorating the kids rooms, hope to have them all finished before Easter, so I may have limited crafting time or maybe the rooms will be finished by summer!
hope you are well! Have a great evening, hugs Debx

Your cards are BEAUTIFUL and I'm so utterly blessed to have "met" you online...I received your WONDERFUL package today and I now have that awesome sugar nellie image to play with as well. There were so many wonderful images in the envelope and I know I'll be asking who makes them as they are just too cute!

You are one wonderful lady who is very kind and generous - those two stamps you sent just blew me away! I can't wait to ink them up!

I only hope I can do you justice - I don't have near the cute stamps that you have but I'm finishing up on your images and will send them out in the next couple of days!

Again, thank've made my day(week/month)!!!
