Girls, Trees, Colours, Bingo and Christmas...........................

Oh am i limited for time now that i have to go back to work and the kids have to go back to school.........i have three sets of uniforms to label, wash and iron, PE kits, sort out lunch boxes and drinks bottles and find the book bags.........and i know i am not the only one in this land to have to do this lol.......

I apologise about my candy not being on here yet..... i am still waiting for something to be sent before i can post......

What do i have for you today.......mostly Christmas creations, mixed in with a little colour.......

First up is a lovely chance to use all our gorgeous embellishments as Just Magnolia have a 'Bingo' themed challenge........here i have gone for ribbon & lace, flowers  and gems and the DT work is just amazing...........this also fits in the the gorgeous challenge over at Crafty Catz this week which is 'Metal & Lace'..........such inspirational DT work guys thanks......and over at Aud Sentiments there is a DT call and an 'Anything Goes' challenge so go on get creative......


The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, i have stuck the gems onto the butterfly, the ribbon, butterfly and heart charms are from my stash again.


................................................................................................................................................


Up next are the Christmas themed cards.........over at Bah Humbug! it's 'Here Come The Girls' about time lol.........i have created this gorgeous purple and silver card with the gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamp....i adore this one it is my favourite......plus it's Christmas in August over at Diva's by Design.......



The card is embossed mirri card from Kanban and i have used some embossed worded vellum from my stash. I have added a wooden star (which is a mini tree decoration) then stuck a gold star which is From Wild Orchid Crafts as are the gorgeous white poppies and the lilac crysantheum and the ribbon is from Papermania.


On this shot you can see that i have added some little lilac beads onto some glue glitter and i have stickled the fur and stars to make it sparkle.

........................................................................................................


Next up, Forever Friends........and i just wanted to thank them for letting Mr Random to his 'thang' and  pick my creation as a winner.........now i will be able to add some more Digi Doodle Delights to my collection.........
their challenge this week is all about '3D creations'.........their DT work is fabulous.........so my creation is another Christmas card to add to my collection......



I have made it 3D by using pads to layer the image and the sentiment. The BG papers are from Papermania - Cranberry & Apple and on top of that i have added this gorgeous glittered vellum from Papermania....gives such sparkle and the lovely Forever Friends image is a die-cut topper from their A Christmas Tale pack as is the sentiment...........the ribbon is from Papermania and once again the gorgeous red & white poppies are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

'Christmas Blessings'

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay this is the last of this lot.............Winter Wonderland have a great theme of 'Trim the Tree' challenge........great inspiration from the DT............ and i had to choose another die-cut topper from Lili of the Valley..........


Here the BG papers are from Papermania again and is called NOEL, again i have used this gorgeous glittered vellum from Papermania, added some embossed vellum with a sentiment, flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts and i have stickled the star she is puttig on the tree and i have glossy accented the tree and added some more purple pearls.
