The teddy stamp is from the Daisy and Dandelion collection which I coloured in using Promarkers. I didn't have a Christening greeting so I made one from rub on letters. I also used some card candy from Craftwork cards and some paper and ribbon from my stash as well as a really cute teddy charm.

So that's it done from this year's Christmas cards. Still got to make a Christening card for a christening I'm going to at the end of this month and some ATCs, so still some more crafting to be done before the year is out. Tomorrow night though I must tidy up all my Christmas stash.....it's in a bit of a mess......
I've used another fab Tilly image from Digital Doodling in traditional Christmas red and green colours. The image was coloured in using Promarkers and the cream scalloped rectangle and ribbon was from craftwork cards. The rest of the items are from my craft stash that I can no longer remember where I bought them from.
I have entered this card into challange 30 on the C.R.A.F.T challenge website. http://trimmiescraftchallenge.blogspot.com/

The box is from Hobbycraft and is decorated mostly using papers and stickers from basicgrey with a few other embellishments added, including the fabric flowers, some ribbon and card candy (craftwork cards). Also a fellow Trimmie came up with a lovely poem for the box which I've used on the lid.
This is also my entry to Challenge 23 at Creative Inspirations http://creativeinspirationschallenge.blogspot.com/2009/12/creative-inspirations-challenge.html#links

Made by my 2 year old, Owen. He got into a right mess using lots of dabber paints, glitter and used some stamps for the first time. He had such fun making this though and it'll make a great present for one of the Grandparents.
Owens big brother, Liam (3) also joined in our crafting session. I drew an outline of a Christmas tree then he coloured it in using dabber paints and again lots of gold and green glitter and he used a star and present stamp. He also got covered in paint and glitter as well as the table, floor, light switch and me! It all got cleaned up though and this calender will go to the other set of Grandparents.

Here's this years christmas card for my husband. He loves traditional christmas colours and I thought the digital image from craftmadfairy would be perfect for his card.
Digi Image - craftmadfairy - coloured with promarker and glittler on the wings
Flower - made using punches
Christmas kisses message - craftwork cards
Other message (to a hunky hubby!) and paper where presents so not sure where they were from.
I also used from red and green cardstock, silver gems and hearts.
I would like to enter this into some challenges:

Here are the results of last nights crafting. I made them for a challenge over on the Trimcraft website, we had to use non-traditional colours and at least 1 star. It was so hard not to use silver on these cards, as I seam to use a bit of silver glitter on most of my christmas cards! Was pleased with how they turned out.

Here's my entry to the C.R.A.F.T. challenge. This is the first time I've entered this challenge, the theme was a christmas card based about an inspirational photo of a postbox. I made this card for the challenge which I will then give to my great Auntie for Christmas. It's my first easel card and I was really surprised how easy it was to made, I'll be making some more christmas cards using this type of card.

Thanks for looking at my blog. I've only recently discovered the big crafting community that can be found on the web, so decided to set up my own blog. I'll update it when I can with cards I've made for different competitions and special occasions.
