A card for the challenge at Crafty Ann's which is to use black and white plus one other colour (I chose red!). I have had the tree stamp for quite a while and do not know the make, I stamped it in black Versafine and embossed with clear ep and added a little red stickles to the ornaments and some punched stars. The papers are Daisy Bucket and Doodlebug, I added a red ribbon and computer generated sentiment. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday, and I am also entering this card for the challenges at Papertake Weekly - Any Christmas Card, Charisma Cardz - Anything Christmas and Saturday Challenge - Christmas Trees anywhere on your card. Wow that's five never managed more than three before!!!

Two cards today, though the photo's are not terrific as there has been no really good light today but as I am on the last minute with both of them they will have to do.

I added Prima flowers with satin roses in the centre from my stash, pink ribbon and computer generated greeting.

The weather here has been awful today after rather a nice start this morning, so decided it was a day to craft, and I was lucky that I managed to get a fairly decent photo. My card today is for two challenges Anyone for Anya? which this week is a recipe, three papers, two buttons and one bow. I coloured my Anya stamp with Copics and therefore I am entering it into the Copic Colour Challenge which this week is Emerald Green, Lipstick Red and Acid Yellow, I didn't have all three colours so have used the closest. I went around the edge with green trying to make stitches and added the stars in the background which were punched out of the border with a Martha Stewart edge punch. The papers were Daisy and Dandelion Christmas and from my stash, I added some Stickles and finished with a computer generated sentiment.

A card today for two challenges which are both for white except for the image. The first is the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is "White on White". I used PB stamp "Christmas Friends" coloured with Copics. I embossed on the Cuttlebug with the Snowflake embossing folder, die cut the swirl and embossed with the Swisss Dots folder and die cut the snowflakes with Shapeabilities. I added a white ribbon and white pearls. The second challenge I am entering is Colour Create Challenge which is "All White"
The theme this week at My Time to Craft Challenge is "So Many Scallops". For my DT card I used a Gorjuss Girl stamp from Sugar Nellie coloured with Copics and stamped onto card cut with Nestabilities. The orange backing papers, though not a colour I would normally use, are from Cosmo Cricket and I just couldn't resist buying these gorgeous double sided papers (I used both sides). My scallops were made with a Martha Stewart double scallop punch using both sides of the paper alternately. I added layers of flowers from my stash and added some pearls on wires which were the decorations on Christmas crackers we had last year (knew they would be useful when I kept them). The card was finished with a computer generated sentiment and some adhesives stones.

I made this card for a Golden Wedding a couple of weeks ago, but thought it would fit nicely into Rainbow Lady's Challenge this week which is "Anniversary". The stamp is an Anna Griffin Rose which I coloured with gold cosmic shimmer and Copics for the leaves, matted onto gold card with gold pearls at the corners. The paper is Papermania, the gold rings topper is from Kanban and the two small gold squares are A and M being their initials. The inside was lined with gold card which showed at the edge where I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch on it. I added a ribbon and computer generated sentiment.

I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do when I read the Charisma Cardz Challenge this week - "No Backing Papers" hmmm, I put my thinking cap on and this is the card I came up with. I remembered I had bought this Magnolia swirly stamp and not yet used it, I stamped in Versafine Sepia, embossed and coloured the small leaves. The stamp is a Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girls, stamped onto card cut with Nestabilities and coloured with Copics. The flowers are from Prima with spacers and pearls in the centres, I added ribbon, pearls and a dragonfly charm.
