Craft Your Days Away Challenge #8
Hi Everyone, today we have another brilliant challenge over at Craft Your Days Away challenge blog. Before I tell you about that, I must say how fantastic the entries were to our "All White" Challenge, they really were superb! Pop to the challenge blog to see if you are one of our winners. So onto the challenge for the next two weeks, its another great one:
Remember, we are a multi craft blog so it does not necessarily have to be a card. It could be a scrapbook page, a gift or anything else, as long as you've crafted it and there's a Christmas tree on it.
For this challenge we are being sponsored by Charmed Cards and Crafts. There's an amazing selection of goodies at the shop - they sell lovely Tilda stamps, Martha Stewart and so much more; in fact they have over £16,000 of stock so I'm sure you'd find what you're looking for. Also, they have a great Christmas Tree freebie, that some of our DT have used, available to download from here so now you have no excuses not to join in with the challenge!!!
So, for my card, I have used one of my new Lili of the Valley stamps, which I've coloured with Pro Markers and added lots of Stickles glitter. Christmas is always a great excuse for me to get the glitter out! The paper is by DCWV and the flowers are a Marianne's die cut.
TOP TIP: Don't buy lots of different ribbons because you never have the right shade anyway. Invest in a reel of white satin ribbon - that's all you'll need. My ribbon loops were made from white ribbon, coloured with Pear Green Pro Marker so that it is exactly the right shade to match my Christmas tree.
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch and Stash - I've used their sketch. My newest items are the rubber stamp and the die cut flowers. My neglected item is the papers.
Secret Crafter - Sparkle and Shine - like I said, I love my glitter!
A Crafty Little Place - Red, white and green
ABC Challenge - H is for Holidays
Delightful Challenges - Glitter it up
Lili of the Valley - Anything goes
So, I can't wait to see what you make for our challenge and don't forget to have a look at the other DT blogs - they've come up with some great ideas for this challenge! Thanks for stopping by,
