These two penguins are from the Daisy and Dandylion CD. I've used the snowflake backing paper from the same CD, one pink and one blue. The toppers are mounted onto silver mirri board and decorated with a snowflake punch with a gem in the middle to match the backing paper.

These cards have been entered into the Raise The Bar Challenge 47 - SNOW.

Sassy Christmas

A stepper card seemed to me to be obvious choice for this topper and the Art Deco Ladies from Nancy Watt Designs. The lady herself seems quite sassy indeed. I've used clear glitter glue to sparkle up her hat and also on the sentiment.

This card has been entered into the One Stop Craft Challenge Week 110 - Sassy Christmas.

Santa's on the Roof!

For this card I've used Nancy Watt design paper and topper of Santa with his reindeer on the roof, decorated with a strip of gold card and tied a bow with dark green ribbon down the side. For the topper I matted onto matching gold card and using gold glitter glue decorated with dots around the scalloped edge. To finish I used clear glitter glue to emphasize the snow on the roof.

I entered this card into the Pear Tree Designs Challenge 30 - Christmas.

Christmas Cutie

This little girl is adorable, I've used Promarkers to colour her and clear glitter glue for the fur pieces on her coat, hat and boots kept the colour to traditional red and green for the whole theme of the card.

I've entered this card into this weeks Alphabet Challenge - G for Glitter.

Thank You Gift Box

This pillow box is ideal to send a small thank you gift. I only used one 12x12 scrapbook sheet to cut out the template for the box, butterfly and scalloped circle. The message is a rub-on and I've punched an extra butterfly out of white card and glued in the centre, lifted the pink wings up and it gives it a little bit more dimension.

I've entered this box into the Polka Doodles Week 49 - Project to hold a gift.

Using Promarkers

I've entered this card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge entitled 'Red and Green Must Not Be Seen'. I've coloured the image in Promarkers, one of the things I like to do is colour the edge of a white mat layer to compliment the colours in the picture, it really ties everything in together.

Another challenge card

I've entered this card into the Alphabet Challenge F for Foliage. I love everything about these papers from the Nancy Watt Collections, the owls are so cute and the colours are my favourites.

Polka Doodles Week 48 Challenge

This challenge was titled All About The Sentiment. I've used some festive papers from a magazine I had and chose the sentment that I liked most. All the edges have been distressed using a pair of scissors and inked. I didn't have the right coloured red card so I matched my promarkers to the nearest and coloured the edges of some white card.
