Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, unlike me, who spent most of yesterday in my bed with some kind of sick bug :(, why is it that when you need to be on 'top form' something throws a spanner in the works, I have no idea what caused it, I spent the whole night before tossing and turning and unable to sleep, I was also itching like crazy, so whether I was just exhausted I don't know. I managed to drag myself up to cook dinner for everyone though! So I am hoping to have a relaxed crafting day today, fingers crossed.
It looks as though you enjoyed the different style of challenge this week, with me just giving a couple of guidelines rather than a 'sketch' to follow.
Karen, although your card looks monochrome it is actually a lovelyMaroon and white Christmas card from you this week, Karen has used Spellbinders Classic Squares, Sue Wilson (CE) Snowflake Lattice Embossing folder and that gorgeous sentiment is from 'Ultimate Crafts'.
A fanstastic card karen, thank you so much for taking part xxx
Lilian has made a beautiful christmas card using a Crafters Companion Sentiment, that is still on my 'to buy' list, and a stunning Snowflake embossing folder, what a stunning Christmas card Lilian, I think this weeks challenge proves that 'less can definitlely be more'! Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge xxx
Lynda I love the striking embossing folder you have used as your background, each time i look I see something different, either stars or crosses mostly, I also love Sue's (CE) gorgeous 'Season's Greetings' sentiment die, did you use your 'Brusho's to colour your background?
Thank you so much for taking part this week Lynda, you have been very busy xxx
Margaret, one Sentiment, two very different looks from you this week, one very traditional style Christmas card with a pretty tree, decorated with flat back gems, the other a very 'Clean and Simple' style card, equally as beautiful as each other, I do love that sentiment though, thank you so much for finding the time to make two cards xxx
Maria, please tell me who makes the embossing folder you have used, I really LOVE it, I am also looking for a die that has little pine cones on, I think that Spellbinders have just bought one out, it would work perfectly with this embossing folder. That Robin stamp you have used is just adorable, Christmas isn't Christmas without a card with Robins on, they are so cute, the little blue Gem in the centre of the bow is the perfect finishing touch. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this weeks card, good luck with 'weigh in' today, my fingers are crossed for you xxx
Michele, 5 Christmas cards from you this week, That Christmas tree die is just so delicate, its all you need on a card, it has worked so well on both of the cards you have used, I do love the Pyramid one though as they are such an unusual shape, thank you so much for making the time to make them xxx
Sonia, wow, such a stunning card, as I said above, 'less really is more with this challenge', you have used Sue's (CE) Snowflake Swirl Embossing folder and that stunning Crafters Companion Christmas Sentiment die, that is all that is needed, the tiny white snowflakes to embellish the sentiment are the perfect compliment, thank you so much for taking part my lovely, I really do appreciate it xxx
Val, I have included this card of yours as it was the card that inspired me to buy some Christmas embossing folders, which in turn inspired this challenge, so its only right that its shown, The Embossing folder is from Crafters Companion, the sentiment Val has printed herself, the oval dies draw your eye into the sentiment, the christmas roses and poinsettisa are a stunning addition.
thank you Val for your inspiration.
I am off to the craft room to have a play and hopefully come up with a Sketch for Monday, have a lovely Sunday ladies.
Love and Hugs
