Merry Christmas

Good morning all,
I trust you are all enjoying the festive period. We had a lovely Christmas and I had the most adorable surprise Christmas present from my darling husband, a 20 week old Birman kitten. We have called her Rosie. I will post a photo in the next few days. She has settled in brilliantly with our other three.

This week we have a new challenge over at CRAFT

Not A Card

Here are our generous sponsors


For my project I decided to make a gift box for my friend's first grandchild who is due at the end of January.
I used the Pink Gem image baby boy -teddy and coloured it in photo shop so that I can use the same image on a candle when he or she eventually arrives.


I cut the wording out and the shape  of the pillow box with handle on my new silhouette machine .
The papers are from the Little Layette set by Katie Pertiet available here.
The ribbon is from Wild Orchids .
I am entering this project into the following challenges.




Enjoy the rest of the holidays and this challenge.
We are looking forward to visiting your blogs.

Morning all,

Non Traditional Colours

Good Morning, Peeps,
   I hope you are all safe and managing to keep warm.  It's Monday again and as always we have a great new challenge at INCY WINCY DESIGNS

Our fantastic sponsor is one we all adore



And the challenge is

Christmas - Non Traditional Colours


During the summer I read all three of the Fifty Shades Books and like millions of others I loved them.
So when Krista drew this little beauty I just had to buy her!



As you can see the DP's are grey - they were originally blue and were from Stamping All Day. They are stunning whichever colour you change them to.
The warm grey is part of the co-ordinations range.
The image as always is coloured with Promarkers.
The ribbon is one I have had since last year and is one I have taken out and put back many times because I don't want to use it all, LOL.
The sentiment was made on my PC.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls are from my stash.

Please stop by my fellow teamies blogs, they have created the most beautiful projects to inspire you.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges



Have fun - look forward to visiting your blogs.
