Another Batch of Challenges

This is my first card for this post and its another new challenge for me this week, its a monthly challenge and its called Crazy Christmas Challenge and their theme was anything goes. So I have made this huge 8x8 card and used a House Mouse Christmas decoupage for this one and they are making Christmad cookies! So I found some cookie paper when I was out last week, with this image in mind and used this as my base. Then picking up the green colour from the image and the paper matted my image onto green card. Before I have stuck this down I have added two organza ribbons and put a bow on the top at the side, then added a Christmas sentiment. Then what card would be without some lovely flowers on to complete it. I had some one very special in mind when I made this card and hop they will like it.
Now for a real challenge this is my card for Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and that was to create a scene so sticking with Christmas this is what I have came up with. First I have layered silver baord on the base of my card and then cut some starry night paper down and added that for my sky, then added Flower Soft to the bottom as snow. Then I have used some of The Snowman images and coloured them with Pro-markers and added them to the base and the sky. Next I had some die cut lamp posts in my stash and I cut some yellow paper out to add to the back of the lamp to look like the glow of the light and added some more Flower Soft to the top of the lamp post. Then added a sentiment to finish it off. It took a while but hope you like my effort.

This is my card for a two challenges this week Totally Papercraft which was Christmas in August and Christmas Stamping All Year and their theme was no traditional colours,  so I haven't used any  and gone for pinks and purples. I forgot about this stamp and sentiment stashed away in my stamp box. I think its a High Hopes stamp, I have had it for quite a while now so can't be sure. So its two little angels having a pillow fight and I just love the sentiment, "Snowflakes fall when angels are having pillow fights", love it. I have to thank my youngest daughter for the pink crimbo paper she gave me for the base of my card. I have twisted some tinsel like ribbon in both the colours and added it to the side, then I have taken the two main colours once again and punched snowflakes out of Bazzil card and added some jewel gems to them. I am really pleased at how this card has turned out, hope you like it too.
Here is my card this week for Just Magnolia Challenge which was to use a fun sentiment. So I have used a Hanglar Stanglar image of a cute little boy with his toy truck and added my fun sentiment, which applies to most little cute boys! Using blues as my main colour combo, kept it quite simple and just added some candi dots to finish it off.
