Typical Bank Holiday Weekend-Cold Wet and Windy

Welcome everyone to my blog today, well thought I might have a run out in the car either up the coast or up around Durham and Tees dale but as usual for Bank Holiday weekend the heavens have opened and its pouring down. So I have done housework, prepared meal to go in the oven ready for younger daughter getting out of bed later this afternoon and decided to make a start on some challenges. I am also really excited to have been chosen to be a DT member for a new blog called Christmas Crafting, I know my daughter is running it but I am still chuffed to have been chosen as there was quite a few peeps applied. Go over and have a look and join in the fun, especially if you like Christmas, she is also organising a ATC Christmas swap more info on the blog click on the link above in my post to link up. 

This is my first card today for a challenge I have never entered before and that is Christmas Challenges with Sketches, so using their sketch this is the card I have created. I have used a Chester the Monkey image from Pollycraft eating his Christmas pud. The papers I have used on this card were free on one of this months craft mags and they are lovely, the sentiment also is from the same paper pack. For a change I have used my Copic markers to colour him in and added some small brown buttons to the top to complete the sketch.
This is my card today for Cute Card Thursday which is the sketch, Pollycraft challenge which was to use Autumn colours reds browns,oranges and then finally for Lollipop challenge which was to make a masculine card. So I have used a  Pollycraft image and used my Copic Markers to colour it in using brown coloured papers, added a sentiment and some nice bright orange buttons to the top.
