Creative Card Crew Challenge Week 24 - Pink,Black and white

Week 24 already at the Creative Card Crew Challenge, this week we are being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps and our challenge is a colour one, use pink, black and white. Well this was a bit of a challenge for me personally, i had no idea what to do!!! i love these whimsy designs, especially this adorable polar bear, i think he is perfect for some of my christmas cards this year. I have stickled him all over, as i couldn't find my glitter paper!!!

Papers are by my friend Anna. Available from Anna-Marie Designs, who's link is on my sidebar.
I have also made a couple of quick christmas cards using some of the ready decoupaged stickers from the forever friends range. Papers are from last years stash, not sure if they are DCWV or papermania, sorry.

These 3d stickers are just perfect for those quick cards, and the sentiments are also done for you already, im not opposed to cheating, especially with so many christmas cards to make this year!

Again another forever friends 3d sticker and papers from last years stash.

Making use of my valentine Martha Stewart border punch, finally!! and also the cuttlebug embossing folders.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable bank holiday weekend. I can not believe we wont get another bank holiday till christmas, what a thought!!! hope you are already for the new school year. I have all Jasmines uniform but havn't finished labelling it up yet. Not looking forward to the tedius school run, as most of you know its my pet hate. I also hate the packed lunch too, oh dear, what a moany old mum i am!!!!
Well everyone i hope you have a great day, will try and pop by some more blogs later this afternoon. I have 2 very important birthday cards to make this afternoon, i daren't leave it any longer!!!
Hugs to you all, Linda x
