Hello to you!
It is so lovely to see you here today.
Have you had some good crafty time recently? I am finding that my card making time is actually reduced at the moment. You see I'm knitting like crazy to get a whole load of Shhhhhhhh! (Christmas) presents finished for my grandchildren and step-grandchildren. Might just finish it all before I fly home to see them ..... if I get a wriggle on.
So, only 2 cards from me again today for the new
where the theme is
1) A Vintage Wine
Well, I have uncovered a serious hole in my crafting stash... I do not have a single bottle of decent sized wine anywhere ( wine bottle stamp that is...there are plenty of decent size wine bottles in the wine cooler in the house! Hee hee!) I have loads of stamps with champagne glasses, but no wine! I so wanted to do a vintage wine bottle but all I spotted was that teeny-tiny one I've used as an embellishment.
These are actually NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) stamps and I have had them for years! Shame on me.
In alphabetical order, I'd like to enter this into:
Cardz 4 Guys - #146 Reindeer
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Santa and/or Elf
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - # 390 Christmas
Everybody Art Challenge - #389 Santa
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Christmas Critters --- I may be pushing it a bit with this one, but there is a reindeer on the card! Let me know if I've overstepped the boundaries girls.
The sentiment was created on the PC using Chrissie's trick of sizing the page to 100% on the PC, then holding my circle die up to the PC I managed to get the text to go around it and print out the correct size for the aperture. Next the aperture was cut out. The images from Katy Sue Designs Santa and Pals stampset were stamped onto a separate sheet that was attached inside the card. They are coloured with ordinary coloured pencils ( a set of 36 that I bought from WH Smiths). The wine bottle comes from Katy Sue Designs Christmas Spirit stampset.
2) Vintage Anniversary
The first idea that popped into my head for this challenge was to use an image of a vintage car or vintage plane.
I'd like to enter this into:
Oh La La Creations Challenge - #217 Vintage
The blue car is from Creative Expressions Timeless Journey stamped in Versacolour 19 Cyan. The pink car is from Habico vintage transport stamped in Versacolour 33 Pink. The sentiment is made up from 2 sets from Die'Sire. It has all been matted onto pink then a blue card blank.
