Papertake Weekly - Christmas Cracker

This card is for the Papertake Weekly Challenge. This week they asked for a Christmas Cracker so I took them literally!!
The card didn't have to actually be a cracker, just a christmas card, but I decided a cracker it was!!

Passion for ProMarkers Vintage

This card is for Passion for ProMarkers, which this week is Vintage.
I normally like to do Vintage, but struggled a bit with this one. I am still learning to use ProMarkers, and so far have only used them on "cute" images, so choosing an image for this one proved a bit difficult.
However, I love this stamp so I thought it was worth a go.

Even Anya has a Radley handbag..................

Off to Spain for the weekend, so I have been getting my challenges done.
This is the first one, and it is for Anyone for Anya, Make a Fake. They want to see anything fake on the card this week, and I have used a punched border as fake lace.

Yet another challenge!

I am really getting into these challenges now (makes a difference when you win!), and couldn't resist the one on Crafty Cardmakers this week. It is called Clear as Day and all you have to do is use something transparent, e.g. acetate, clear jewels, etc.

This is my card. I have used a Sarah Kay stamp, and coloured it with ProMarkers (getting used to them now). Love the way the jeans have come out! For the transparent bit I put some acetate through my Wizard, using a cuttlebug folder, then wrapped it around the card and tied it with ribbon.

Three for the price of one!!

I had to make a card for my cousin's (older cousin!!) 70th birthday, so I decided to see if I could make a card to enter into a couple more challenges. (I have been bitten by the bug now I have won one!)

This is what I came up with. The challenges that it is for are Anyone for Anya - Get Round To It which requires an Anya (naturally) and anything round, e.g. spots, circles, etc., and the other one is the Papertake Weekly Challenge which this week is a sketch.

Anyone for Anya 3-2-1 Challenge

Well, I must be getting better as I decided to enter this challenge, and made the card, before I got bullied into it by my friend Sue.

This week's challenge on Anyone for Anya is 3-2-1, It's Recipe Time, and I had to use 3 pieces of paper/card (not counting the card itself), 2 buttons and a bow. And, of course, Anya.

Well, I just had to do pink which is my favourite colour. Here is the card -

Thanks for looking.

More challenges!

I have been dragged in, screaming and kicking, to two more challenges!

Here is my card -

The first challenge is Passion for ProMarkers Challenge - Colour Combo. The colours were Grass and Canary, and luckily I have those two colours in my meagre collection. I only started collecting ProMarkers on 10th October.

The other challenge I thought I would try is the Papertake Weekly Challenge Sketch #27. The sketch to follow is

Aren't I getting ambitious!!! Thanks for looking.

Crafty Cardmakers #7 Stamp Something

I enjoyed entering into the Crafty Cardmakers challenge last week (even if I didn't win), so I thought I would give it another go.

This week the challenge is Stamp Something meaning just what it says - stamp something! You can add another challenge to yourself, but just stamping something is probably challenge enough!!
Here is my card, here's hoping with everything crossed!

Fog bound

Still here BUT... completely fog bound.
