ABC Christmas Challenge ,,, F for Freebie and a Sketch

Hi all :-) This is another scheduled post so I am hoping that Mr Blogger is behaving himself :-)
It seems many of us will be quite well prepared this year !! loads of you are joining in with the challenges !! Well Done and thank you !! :-)

We are already onto the letter 'F' and this time it is Carissa's turn to choose the theme

F for FREEBIE !! :-)

Carissa has also made a fab sketch for us to follow so please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see the sketch and get more details for the challenge :-) There is a gorgeous freebie for you to download too !!!

We are sponsored by the lovely Gerda at Stamp Fairy and one lucky winner can choose some fab images :-)

Gerda very kindly gave me this image a little while ago so I just HAD to use this Santa's Chimney one :-) I coloured the image with Copics and added some Polar White Flower Soft to his hat trim and pom pom and glitter to the icy chimney. The papers are Crate Snowy Day,, love these ,,, :-) I added a ribbon and a MS snowflake and thats all ,,,, after spending HOURS removing embellies last Christmas I am making cards that will fit into an envelope !!! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some fabby cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them :-)

Simon Says ...... Happy Birthday !!

This is a scheduled post so I hope Mr Blogger is doing a good job while I'm away :-)

This week we have a fab easy theme for you on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge


It is my 50th Birthday today ,,, so I just couldn't resist setting this theme :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 spree to the Simon Says Stamp store !!! what a FANTASTIC prize eh !! You can get loads of yummy goodies with that !!! :-)

I used this very cute House Mouse stamp from this Balloon Birthdays unmounted set. What better cake for a mouse than a cheese cake !!!! :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. The papers are Basic Grey, not sure which paper pad but I think it's called Cupcake ,,,. I embossed the blue panel with Cuttlebug folder, added some ribbon, a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and an American Crafts Brad . The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Tags and Tickets set .

Aww ,,, he is putting alot of effort into blowing out his candle eh !! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some fabulous creations for you to see so hop on over to the Challenge blog to see them :-)
