I've chosen some papers from Kaisercraft Peachy Keen collection and added a co-ordinating border strip.
The number I used is 8 which happens to be my lucky number.
Hope you like it!
Makes a nice change from Christmas cards which I've been mass producing lately.
I've used the other half of the card to create one for Case this sketch. Somehow it ended up as a Christmas card.
I'm currently suffering from pneumonia and pleurisy and not performing at my best. However I'm managing to create Christmas cards which will be sold for Medical research.
Next is a card for Cardz 4 guyz where they want a forest themed card.
Where you see black it is silver.
I've added rhinestones here and there.
It is a futuristic Christmas tree but I think it qualifies.
I'm making this first card for Jingle Belles where they want a critter.
The sticker I've used features a mouse in bed.
The background paper appears grey on the scanner but is actually a soft silver as is the washi tape I used in the background.
The star in the bottom right hand corner was on the paper and is bright silver.
My next is for Colour my heart Dare where they want monochrome.
I've used green for a Christmas Card.
The washi tape on the right is straight, I chopped it off in the scanner LOL
The diamentes are clear.
And another similar card for ABC Christmas where they want U for upon or V for very quick.
White with one has a combined challenge with Stick it down.
The colour is Elephant grey and here's the sketch.
I started by mixing grey paint and using a Tim Holtz mask featuring travel words I prepared my background.
Those regular followers know that I mainly scrap my travel photos.
My photo is of a sculpture we saw in Montreal. It is by British artist Sophie Rider.
If you google her you will see she sculpts many rabbits.
Next I used silver washi tape as my cross behind the photo.(I didn't have grey)
My title is part of the grey paint words...wander. We spent that day looking around Montreal on our own and discovered these sculptures.
The smaller square gives a space for the date.
Distressed solid background (e.g., old Basic Grey solids) Mine has been misted with white, then inked with silver grey and black to make the words visible. (Explore see travel life adventure), done through a Tim Holtz mask

I'm combining the two as I have already done the Rochelle Spears challenge.
I'm using the words "staring out the window" as these photos are from Parc Omega (where I saw the Moose!)
These are 3 photos of bambis or young deers.
Apart from being a fast scrapbooker, I also can layer well and recycle quite a deal of items.
For this layout, I started with a paper from my kit with cassettes on it. (wanted something with red)
The grey and white card is a recycled ticket folder. It is also flipped to become the silver mats for 2 of the photos
Next I added a small scrap of pastel card from packaging of my ephemera.
I punched a couple of border strips in the same red card as I used on the left.
The arrows were added to emphasise the height of the tower and the sticker of the tower was added on that.
My final 3 embellishments are the red cloth maple leaf, the camera, and "fun".
My title is SMILE.
In total, 5 layers in some parts.
Of course it is another of my photos from my trip.
This moose was outside a shop in Mt Tremblant which is a ski town near Quebec.
I started by splattering the background, there are 4 different colours. The fourth one is white and in reality it shows up on the cream bazzil. One large blob appeared but I left it as it gives it interest.
My photo is mounted on navy then a scrap of vellum. The word leisure appears in my long title.
The flair is a little joke "born to be wild". The toy moose wasn't very wild but I did have to wrangle with it to get a decent photo.
All of the items on the following layout are from my Counterfeit kit.
The pink plaid paper and matching tags form part of it.
The cathedral embellishment is from a pack of Montreal stickers that I bought in Canada.
I will put my journaling on the top tag later.
Our room at the Queen Elizabeth Fairmont hotel in Montreal overlooks the cathedral roof. It was interesting looking at all the copper domes glisten in the sunlight.
Here's another layout I've done featuring the deer paper from my kit.
I've also used some diecut label tags as a banner across the top and a sign from my Canada sticker pack. The background matting is 5 strips of offcuts inked with pinecone ink.I've also used triangular shaped enamel dots.
These 2 photos were taken while feeding deer out the bus window.
On our way to Quebec we stopped at a little town named Saint Anne de la Perade.
We were given a talk at the tourism centre then viewed a unique cabin from which they fish for salmon.
The cut a hole in the ice and sit inside the cabin with fishing lines dropped down through the hole.
There is a bed, a sink/kitchen area and even a heater. You would need this mid winter in Canada.
I've used 2 different sized photos plus cut the third to form my title.
I used co-ordinating tags, pictures,ticket and border strip. I also did lots of hand journaling.
One of my top 3 things I wanted to see in Canada was a moose.
We went to Parc Omega and my wish came true!
The keeper told us to stay very still and stare into the birch trees.
We might be lucky to see him.
Suddenly, out of the trees came the enormous bull moose (with his friend the goat.)
I was very excited and took lots of photos.
The first one was with a zoom lens so not as clear.
The second photo was the pen near the bus, where the keeper fed him a carrot so we would have time to take photos.
I've used a background paper I bought in Canada, spattered blue mist on it then used washi tape on the top and bottom. The second triangle is just visible as my photos were big.
I've used one paper from my Counterfeit kit but the remainders are from my scrap bags.
I've tried to keep to the aqua /red palette.
My embellishments are the Canadian maple leaf, ricrac and 2 brown labels. The writing has blurred in the scanner.(I will fix that)
It was NOT the big apple as in New York but a coffee stop outside Niagara.
