Alphabet challenge blog.

The alphabet challenge blog has O for one word.

I've gone quite modern and random with this one.
I used a hashtag and I'm using up left over alphas so didn't have a gold "O". Instead I used brackets then found a tiny black O, so made a feature of it. Note also the circles on the paper behind hint at the O as well.

Freshly Made sketches and li'l red wagon

Here is the latest sketch at Freshly made sketches.

I'm using some more modern Christmas paper featuring dogs (yes, dogs).
I adhered some stars I had in my stash around the sentiment.

At Li'l red wagon they want us to use a bear on our card.
I searched high and low and finally found a teddy bear in a Christmas stocking that I could fussy cut and re-use. I kept my background and sentiment simple.

Lasting Memories "CRISP"

The next challenge at Lasting Memories is to use the letters of the word CRISP to create a layout.

I've used the following

C=curves, corner brad,
R=ribbon, recycled cardboard (on pink tag)
I= ink (walnut for dipping and black ink for bird stamps.
S=Sassafrass Lass border sticker, string (twine)
P=polka dots, parrots, pink, purple brads

With close ups of the tags
(walnut ink and stamped ink birds)

(Recycled strips and flutterby designs cardboard recycled)

Merry Little Christmas and The scrap room.

I'm combining a couple of challenges with this card.
Merry Little Christmas challenge wants anything goes.
Winter Wonderland wants bright

I used a paper from my Counterfeit kit which is green and orange. To that I used some alphas I had left from a set I used last month.
I added gold ribbon to make it Christmassy plus 3 more Peanuts stickers of snoopy and Woodstock preparing for Christmas. Kids will like this one .


Yesterday I made this layout for another challenge on The scrap room.

I went bright with this one and managed to use 3 orange papers from my kit, plus some green and scraps of purple.
The dinosaur was in Canberra.

If you look hard you can see the same green paper that I used in the card above.
This was a fun layout to do and I'm pleased to also use the bookplate and some purple washi.

Jingle Belles & ABC Christmas challenges

I'm combining 2 challenges here.
Jingle Belles has a pink Christmas theme

I used pink Christmas themed paper, pink washi tape and some cute "Peanuts" themed stickers.
My sentiment is a modern one.

ABC Christmas challenges  has V for velocity.
Two of the stickers feature ice skating and skiing. This should qualify for that.

Christmas crafts all year around / Daring Cardmakers

Themes at Christmas Crafts all year around include Christmas Angel, Winter angel or nativity.

I've chosen Nativity.
I fussy cut around a scene from an old Christmas card then added my sentiment and some washi tape.

Meanwhile Daring Cardmakers has a Use your scraps challenge.
I've accumulated quite a few smaller pieces of paper while making cards plus various embellishments. I combined some of them on this Christmas card and managed to find a heart die cut to match the quote on the sentiment.

Li'l red wagon.

The challenge at Li'l red wagon is to cut it out. We can either fussy cut or use diecuts.
My arthritic hands are aching today, so I used 3 die cuts on this Christmas card.
They are all from the same Kaisercraft range.

Along the bottom I used gold washi tape which looks black and white on here.
