ABC Christmas Challenge C for CANDY + DT CALL !! :-)

We had lots of lovely entries to the Bells challenge over the last 2 weeks :-) Isn't it nice to get some cards ready for next Christmas ! No last minute rush :-)

This week Cathy has chosen C for CANDY with the added requirement of PINK !

We are being sponsored this week by Penrith Crafts, they have donated a gorgeous stamp !! I want it !!! :-)

We are also looking for 2 new people to join our Design Team :-) If you are interested just join the ABC Christmas Challenge and remember to add the letters 'DT' to Mr Linky

I didn't have any cany images, but I found these lovely CC Designs digi downloads
I coloured Trevor with copics and sat him on the candy canes ,, I was trying to make it look like he was sitting on a candy cane chair ,, not sure I achieved that ,,, but that was the intention !! :-) The papers are My Minds Eye and I used a MS icicle punch , a spellbinders snowflake die and a Funky Fairys Punch em sentiment ,, which is now unavailable ,, I love these !!

I added lots of stickles, oh I almost forgot, I used a Nellie Snellen Multiframe too :-)

The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge
I have a blog candy at the top of my blog sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek :-)

Simon Says ,,,, New Baby :-)

Oh WOW !! What a fabulous response we had to our Punch it Challenge last week :-) We had a record number of entries !! Over 300 !! :-)I hope you all join us again this week :-)
We have a very cute theme for you on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week


I love all things Baby ,,, soo cute :-) You can make whatever you like ,, it doesn't have to be a card ! :-) It could be a Christening or Baby's First Christmas too ,,, anything Baby ,,, Baby Animals ,,

Heidi is offering one lucky entrant a lovely shopping spree to her store and of course she will pay the shipping costs:-) With all the fabby new stuff arriving in store the winner will be spoilt for choice ! :-

This week we are being joined by the lovely and very talented CATHY who has agreed to be in the Designer Spotlight :-)If you haven't visited her blog you are in for a treat

I used my lovely HM Cozy Shoe stamp,,very cute eh :-) AND if you are interested Simon Says Stamp have now got all the newest releases !! :-) I feel a shopping spree coming on !! :-)
I coloured the image with copics and inked around the edge with Faded Jeans Distress ink. Then I used a Nellie Snellen Multiframe ,,, these will be available in the Simon Says Stamp store soon :-)
The papers are printed from the Wild Rose Studio CD
I love gingham for baby cards :-) I used a mixture of flowers and a couple of buttons ,, a few chocolate drops and some ribbon from my stash :-)

The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives clear stamp

I followed the fab sketch on the Stampin' For the Weekend Challenge :-) I stuck the sentiment at the top rather than the bottom by mistake ,, and when I tried to move it it pulled the paper off with it so it had to stay there ! Hope thats OK ! :-)

I am also entering this into the following challenges :-)

Stamp with Fun who have the same theme ,,,, Baby :-)

Everybody's Art Challenge who have a colour scheme of Brown, Blue and White :-)

I have a blog candy at the top of my blog sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you are interested in having a peek :-)
