An excited post from me this morning to let you know that the annual and very fabulous Mega Christmas Challenge is just starting over at Passion for Promarkers. Our theme is nice and easy:

The rest of the team 2 girlies have some fabulous cards to show you this week. The challenge is open until 1st January so you've got plenty of time to grab your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers and join us! You've got to be in it to win it!!

Here's my card, using one of my all time favourite Penny Black stamps - Let It Snow! This little mouse makes an appearance at least once every Christmas.

 Just love this joyful cutie!

The papers are odds and ends of old packs, Forever Friends and Crafter's Companion I think??

Thanks for visiting today.

Jolly Snowy

Hello again!
 As promised earlier I'm back again to share my DT card for
Penny Black Saturday Challenges 

The new challenge is just starting, as usual ANYTHING PENNY BLACK GOES, the optional 'Extra' challenge this time is

I'm still in need of Christmas cards so I went with that option using this very cute Snowman stamp which is called Jolly Snowy - very appropriate as he has a big smile on his face. The green paper is by First Edition and always makes me think of woolly jumpers. 

He is coloured with promarkers and pencils along with a good sprinkle of glamour dust and stickles.

I do hope you'll pop over to the main blog, just click on the picture below, to see the fabulous cards from the rest of the design team.

Fancy Folds

Morning Folks!
As the first of December falls on a Saturday, I have two DT posts to share with you today. Here's the first, I'll be back shortly with my PBSC post too!

The new challenge theme over at SPARKLES CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE is:


I have to be honest here, I did cheat a bit with this theme because I had some ready scored Spring Fold cards in my stash from Every Crafts A Pound. No point in ignoring them again, they've been in my stash for years so about time they saw daylight. If you are looking for a tutorial on this fold this one is excellent. I also 'rediscovered' some LOTV toppers bought from Ebay in amongst some old papers so I used one of those too! 

Apologies for the slightly dark picture, it's been so gloomy here all week :-(
