Colour Create, Pixie Cottage and OSCC

Well, I'm still alive! It's been a bit of a rubbish week and rather a drastic way to lose over 8lbs in weight, but I am coming through this last lot of illness. It seems like I haven't been well since I got back from my holiday. Hmmm....maybe holidays are bad for your health? lol.

Anyway, I've been too ill to do much on the Internet, so I'm posting all of my cards today. Sadly I've missed some of the challenges that they were made for, but I'm still entering them into a few and the links are all the way through this post.

First up, here's my Colour Create cards. I went a bit crazy with the wonderful colours Janiel picked for us (Robin egg blue, sea foam green and cream. The optional extra is winter). I made one cutsie cards and 5 quick and easy cards.

I'm entering this first card into:
Wild Orchid Crafts - Blue Christmas
Paper Cutz Challenge - Christmas lots of bling
Frosted Designs - Distressing
Paperplay challenges - Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow
Stampin' B's - Use snowflakes on your card
ABC Christmas - X is for Christmas
Polycraft Monday - A Glittery Christmas
Oldie but a Goodie - Glitter

I'm entering these into:
Die Cut Dreams - Christmas Anything Goes
Stampin' for the weekend - Winter

These last 3 are being entered into

Scrappy Frogs - Merry Christmas

I think the quick and easy cards got a little closer to the challenge colours and I had the chance to use my new Stempleglede and Paula Pascale stamps on a couple of them.

Next up is my Pixie Cottage card where the theme is ribbons and bows and there is also a sketch to follow. I've used the stamp by Artish called Forever and Ever . For this card I wanted to create a lot of height and depth so it uses many different thicknesses of foam pads on the different levels.

I'm entering this into:

Stampin' Royalty - Patterned Paper

And finally here is my OSCC card where it was my choice of theme and I picked 'Snow People'. Hopefully that'll help us all to get another Christmas card made this year. The image I've used on this card is from Robyn's Fetish digital stamps and it is called Frosty Da Snowman. I've used both polar white flowersoft and stardust stickles on him to add a bit of texture.

I'm entering this into:

Fussy and Fancy - Christmas with no red or green

C.R.A.F.T - Using Vellum (the embossed snowflakes are on vellum)

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
