A card, A gift and a stamp launch!

Woo Hoo! We're launching a new Pixie Cottage image on the Colour Create Challenge today! Yes, the fabulous Michelle has given us 2 prizes of brand new stamps, one of which has not been seen on any other blog before. And I got the chance to make a card with it! (Do you think I'm tickled pink? You bet I am)

Anyway, I have 2 makes for you today using the challenge colours and themes from Colour Create. The colours this week are:

Grey, Green and White

The optional extra is to use silver or acetate.

This first card uses the brand new image called Hannah's Stocking by Sandra Hammer (which will be available to purchase sometime soon at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More - just keep a look out for it).
This is such a fantastic Christmas image because it just sums up the excitement that every little child has on Christmas Eve. I have put acetate in the window and there is a silver Father Christmas charm and silver glittered snowflakes & stars on this card.

My second make is a little easel card but it also is a gift because it has quite a deep drawer in it that I can use to put some papering body lotions in, or some make-up, or maybe ever some yummy chocolates.
This one uses the lovely Marianne image from Stempleglede. I've used the silver option on this one, with the silver mirror board punched out with the Martha Stewart punch, a silver chain for the drawer handle, and silver metal surrounding the green pearl brads.

I'm entering these into the following challenges

ABC Christmas - Y is for Yuletide
A Crafty Little Place - Anything Goes
Creative Stamp Friends - Package (the easel drawer package)
Oh La La Challenge - Christmas Song ("So here it is, Merry Christmas" - the first line is " Are you hanging up your stockings on the wall")
Paper Cutz - Anything Goes
Stamp With Fun - Advent
StampsRUs - Holiday Cards
Totally Stampalicious - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes

Please take a look at the amazing cards and gifts that the rest of the DT have made.
Oh and before I go - Mina is celebrating her 2nd blogoversary - do pop over to see her for the chance to win some of her wonderful mega candy - there are several prizes to be won.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
