Something different

Today I have made something different, these are for my 4 grandchildren, and will be filled with sweets, even little George, who is only 14 wks is getting one, i'm sure mummy and daddy will eat the sweets for him.

The spider image was a freebie from digistampboutique, and I made it into a backing paper on the computer and then printed onto card, and then made into cartons on my Hougie board. The little witch is a digi from .bugaboostamps the teddy in the pumpkin is from  .disdigidownloads and the other cute image is from digistampboutique.  and they are all coloured with copics. The little stickers are from  a pound shop. I really enjoyed making these and will probably make some as christmas gifts
I am entering these in the following challenges

Very wet and windy

What an awful day, weather wise that is, the sun came out for a while this afternoon, so hubby went for a walk, and came back soaked to the skin  and freezing cold. I on the other hand was sensible and stayed in and made a card.

I am entering this card in incywincydesigns     challenge 116   Recycle
My recycled item is  the wired star, it is from an old christmas card, image is from bugaboo and is coloured with copics. The card looked a bit dark till I added the glitter snoflakes, but they seem to have lifted it a bit.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, off to make dinner now, will be back later to look at some other blogs.

Another christmas card today

As it's nearly half term I thought I would tidy out the grandchildrens craft box, and I found this gorgeous navy card with silver flecks, I think it's Kanban, they have only got a small piece now, because i've used the rest for this card. I have used the sketch from sketch and stash challenge 72, the image is coloured with copics, and lots of glitter, and the blue pearls are from wildorchid crafts. I am entering this in the following challenges

I haven't visited any blogs for a while, but I will rectify that as soon as I finish this post. We have been away visiting family, I did take my netbook with me, to keep in touch but my 2 year old grandson kept trying to help me, pressing all the keys at once, so I gave up trying. Anyway now I am playing catch up, but I have managed to make a card, another christmas one, and here it is

The image is from LOTV, my lovely crafting friend Mau (Cakelady on Docrafts ) bought it for me when we met up at Harrogate, thanks again Mau. I have coloured it with copics and added lots of glitter and the flower is from wildorchid crafts.The challenges I am entering are
