Crafter's Cafe #163

I hope you are well
Welcome and Thank You to all my new followers!
It is lovely to have you here! 

Who is excited for CHRISTMAS??

I am working with an image today from 

The image that I am using today is 

I have coloured my image with pro-markers!
what else... It is all I seem to use at the minute! So much so that loads are running out! 

It was our challenge theme to use ribbon! So I decided to do something a little different
I have tied a bow with two different colours of grosgrain ribbon and also included a length of twine

I have added this to the corner of the card and I think this looks really effective!

The DSP that I have used is all Stampin Up! 
and it is from many years ago! I think it is called Merry Moments...

I am one of those people that will buy something and not use it for years as you don't want to spoil it! 

How many of us do that??

Thank You for taking the time to visit and I hope to see you in our challenge!

NJC Challenge Winter #39

Good Morning!
How are we all today??

I am having a rubbish few days - but crafting is helping!
So this week I have been using one of the fabulous images from 

I feel so lucky that they are sponsoring our challenge this month as their images are amazing, but also they have stepped in last minute to sponsor the challenge as we were let down with images..

So a massive thanks to the Day for Daisies team
It is much appreciated!

The image that I chose to work with is 

A beautiful image that I have loved working with...

Just perfect for our DT theme of winter!
I have coloured the image with Pro Markers
and added glitter to the tree as tinsel!

This close upof the image shows the sparkle - probably a bittoo much added 
but it is Christmas 
after all!

The papers are from a set that I have had about 3 years 
and the are one of those sets that you think are too nice to use! 
Well I decided that it was time they were opened!

The sentiment that I have used is 
Stampin Up!

As I was on a roll I have also created a tag to go with the card
These I will be sending to my Auntie that lives in Australia
I always send her a package at Christmas and she always loves what I create!

I have added glitter to the baubles on the tree on this image - as the glitter overload I felt was too much on the card! 

I love the layers that you can create on a tag! and something so simple looks really effective! 

I have added the same sentiment and also pearls to the tag!

I hope you like what I have created and thank you for taking the time to visit!
It is much appreciated! 
Have a lovely day

Awesome News... Crafters Cafe DT! #162

So today I have some exciting news
I am able to share with you my first project for the 

It has been a long time since I applied for a DT position and I am thrilled to be working with a great team!

I look forward to the coming months for the challenges that we have!

The challenge this time was to do a Christmas Birthday or use Christmas Colours... I chose Christmas colours - I feel that this was perfect for the image that I have chosen

The image I am working with 
is from 

I just love it! and perfect for this challenge! 

I have coloured my image with pro-markers
and have tried get the colours through the trees to match the shading in the DSP that I have used  

I have added glitter through the image for added sparkle and I think that this looks great as snow!

The words are Tim Holtz - my go to accessory at the minute, I love the effect these create! The string is not craft string -just an ordinary ball of string - been meaning to try this for weeks! 

I have inked the edges of the card blank that is olive green 
and the matt panel is chocolate brown
The DSP is also olive green, having the same shades in it

I hope you like my first project for
