Time for a new challenge at Crafty Bloggers Network and this month we're going GIRLY!
We are sponsored by Milk n Coffee digital stamps and for my first card I chose the very girly and very serene Yoga Madeline. What are the chances of me looking that chilled throughout the crazy month of December ha!
I coloured with Copics and Spectrum Noirs, the papers are from Webster's Pages and I added some ribbon, pearls and paper flowers, all from The Ribbon Girl. The sentiment is LOTV and the dies are Spellbinders.
I've had almost no time for cardmaking lately but here's December and not enough Christmas cards made so I'll be giving my crafty stuff a good sort out, I know I have some gorgeous Christmas stamps buried in the stash. Are your cards all made yet? If you make a girly one, please share it with us this month at Crafty Bloggers Network, we'd love to see them!

I chose Ann Marie's card from 1.7.13, I loved the watercolour feel to the image and the layout:
I used a favourite stamp, Hero Arts Poppies, inked with Broken China and then sprayed with water to get the watercolour look, the papers are Carte Postale.
This will be our final challenge for the year at ABC Challenges so we hope you'll all join in! It's been fun working with a lovely Design Team and we'll see you again in January!
Over at Crafty Bloggers Network we have a new monthly challenge - Christmas!
We are sponsored by the fabulous Just Some Lines and I've coloured 'Seeing Santa' with Spectrum Noirs and used a Forever Friends Christmas paper pack from Papermania, adding a Memory Box Christmas tree and some gems and ribbons.
Hoping to see your Christmas cards over at Crafty Bloggers Network.

Our Wednesday evening craft group started by the lovely Áine is going strong, crafting and great craic with lovely crafty people! I had fun with candles and tissue paper, I gold embossed this Hero Arts poppy stamp onto white tissue paper before colouring with Copics, then melting onto the candle. I stamped a card to match.

Over at ABC Challenges we are making cards for children. I chose Papermania's Tilly Daydreams A4 paper pack, with its cute decoupage and pretty embellishments I thought it would be perfect for a child's card. Sorry about the terrible photo, the light is dire here this morning!
Yup, it's Anything Goes this month at Crafty Bloggers Network so let's see your cards!
Our sponsor is the fabulous Rick St Dennis and I chose this image, North Pole, colouring it lightly with Antique Linen and Broken China distress inks and water. I used Basic Grey Aspen Frost papers and tree and snowflake die cuts. The little tree was cut from double sided sticky backed paper, I poured glitter over it before peeling off the backing and sticking it down. The flower ribbon and pearls are from The Ribbon Girl.
See you later with another card
