Creative Card Crew challenge post-Stripes

Hi all!! Hope this finds you well.

We have a new challenge at Creative Card Crew-we want to see your stripes! At christmas there are plenty of options for this one-socks, hats, scarves or candy canes! You could use images of tigers too-as long as there's stripes somewhere!

we are sponsored by QKR stampede who are giving away 5 digi images to the winner. there is also another prize for someone from Dies are Us.

On to my card. I have used the 'stockings hung' image from QKR stampede and paper pieced it onto stripey paper.

I thought I would use this to make a little living room scene behind an acetate window that I had in my stash.
The image stamped at the front is from Little Claire. I added some glitter to add some sparkle.
Hope you like it and thank you for any comments you may make.

Tuesday Throwdown DT post-Christmas Tags

Hi everyone!
Christmas is really coming quickly now! I am getting excited!
I have been making lots of cards and boxes and have one of my boxes to show you today. This is for the Tuesday Throwdown christmas tag challenge.

This is a milk carton box made with Kanban card. The image is from My Grafico.
I punched 2 very small holes and threaded a Little Claire tag through. I tied it on the inside.

Thank you for looking and any comments you may make!

New design team Tuesday Throwdown challenge card!Shaped cards

Hi everyone!!
Well you might have guessed from my post title that I am very excited to announce that I am now on the Tuesday Throwdown design team! I love Tuesday Throwdown and all the challenges are fab!

This fortnights challenge is Shaped Cards. It's great to get creative and produce a card in a different shape to the norm. We are sponsored by Robyns Fetish and I have chosen the Putting Up The Tree image.He is very cute and was easy to colour!

I coloured him with promarkers and fussy cut him out. The shape of my card is actually from a Crafters Companion card kit. I used the scrap bit left over from a die cut image and just traced it to make my own card!
I have used mirri card and embossed it to give it texture. the silver glitter domes are from Docrafts and come in different colours and 2 sizes-I love these to finish off cards!
