More of the Same...

I really wanted to make something for the Sentimental Sundays "Christmas Tag" challenge as i missed last week but as I said in my post below there are just not enough in hours in the day at the moment so I'm afraid so it another CAS card & I used the new Jellypark "Tag With Ribbon" digi as it is so versatile & coloured it with ProMarkers, added a sticker, used Galaxy Gold Brilliance ink pad to ink the edges & finished with Glamour Dust.  The sentiment again is from Pink Petticoat.  This week we are sponsored by the wonderful Meljen's Designs.

The challenges:
Card Makin' Mamas - Happy Holidays
Fussy & Fancy - Tags & Banners
Crafty Hazelnut - Christmas Birthday or Anything Goes
Card & Scrap - Anything Goes

I'm having a really busy weekend trying to get sorted for Christmas as I'm working all week & we are away next weekend (seeing the grandchildren & taking their pressies - can't wait) & working Christmas eve :(  Hope your weekend is fabulous!

If you have landed here from Bente then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one! Our Design Team have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter Website and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.

For my card I did a bit of decoupage using "There's a Penguin in my Cocoa" digital image & as the challenge theme for the Blog Hop is "Two of a Kind" because it is our 2nd Birthday (which I almost forgot) I used 2 brackets (there is also 2 presents too).  I finished the card with Glamour Dust, greeting & pompom.

Sorry for the rubbish photo

I'm entering my card to these challenges:
The Cupcake Craftroom - Anything Goes for Christmas
Ladybug Crafts - Christmas/Winter
Natalie & Amy - Winter Wishes
Sparkles - Christmas is Coming
Crafts & Me - Anything Goes (with optional extra)
Papertake - Anything Goes (ditto)

Hop! Hop! Hop!  Good luck and hope you're enjoying it so far & having a great week. 
Sorry I haven't been around much but I haven't had a lot of free time & the little I have had has been getting ready for the few craft fayres I've been doing lately (luckily the last one is Friday night so hopefully things can get a bit back to normal (& maybe I can get sorted for Christmas, I've still got quite a few pressies to get & I haven't even thought about writing cards :S).  I was going to put the tree up last Sunday but it's going to have to wait until this weekend (I love Christmas & can't wait to get trimmed up!)

Why are there not enough hours in the day/days in the week/weeks in a month etc...  In January I said to myself I will be super organised this year & start making my Christmas cards now, which I did.  Why then by November do I only have about 11 made (& I've sold most of them so goodness only knows what I will be giving to my nearest & dearest lol - CAS all the way I think!).  I did start to get ahead with my DT  stuff recently but that's all slipped again :( I was at a craft fayre all day yesterday which went really well :D but I have 3 more before Christmas & have to find time to replenish my jewellery stock (why do I have to go to work!, ooh yeah just remembered to pay for my crafty bits to use lol).

Hence I'm late posting my card for this week's Di's Digi Challenge, which this time is "Fall Colours".  I coloured the cute image with ProMarkers & finished off with some die cuts, flowers, greeting & gems.  I hope you will have time to join us :)

The challenges:
Forever Friends - Anything Goes 
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Pattie's Creations - Birthday
Raise the Bar - Birthday Theme

I rest my case - it is already Sunday lunchtime & hubby will be back from footy soon, luckily dinner is all under control lol.  I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday & that it doesn't go too quickly.

If you read my last blog post you will know that I was over the moon that my card was chosen to be on the cover of this month's Papercraft Essentials magazine.  I think the wonderful "Snowman with Birds" digi stamp from Jellypark had something to do with it as it is gorgeous (as are all the new Jellypark Christmas images).  I coloured it with ProMarkers, the papers are digi (I just love digi papers they are so versatile), from Designs by Krista &  I added Glamour Dust around the image & to the die cut snowflake border finishing the card off with a pompom, greeting & gems.

The challenges:
Totally Gojuss - Bling It On
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi
I Love ProMarkers - Christmas is Coming
Stamp & Create - Winter Wonderland

I can't believe it is Friday already, this is usually a good thing but as I've had this week off & I haven't done everything on my To Do list it's not so good lol.  Hope you've all had a great week & that today is pretty fab too (though if you're working you might have to wait for the weekend for some fab-ness :D)

On the Cover of a Magazine!

I had been feeling a bit fed up today cos we were supposed to be going to the cinema but I have been poorly so couldn't go (very annoying too as I'm on holiday from work & have so much on my To Do list that I wanted to catch up with as well) SOO when I saw that my snowman card was on the cover of this month's Papercraft Essentials it really cheered me up.  I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the magazine & check out the other Jellypark teamies cards too :D
