It's Challenge time again!


It's challenge time at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends!

We have two amazing sponsors this month.  AMB Illustrations and Crafty Girl Creations!

I had the choice of a digi image from Crafty Girl Creations and I choose Ornaments 2.  I choose it because I thought it would be great to colour - which it would.  Then when I printed it I had a completely different idea.  The detail on the image is so gorgeous I decided that I would run it through my Minc with some gold foil and the result.. well, I love it.  It's so Chrismassy!  The shine of the foiling is lovely!

So here is my DT card for our Anything Goes challenge #70.  Why not pop over to LPOCF and join in!

And there are prizes!

Have fun creating!

Santas Loot


Here we are mid way through the week!  And I'm playing with the cute little Santa stamp from Stampingbella .  He's from the Littles Christmas Collection.  Great fun to colour! He also comes with a matching die although I've not used it on this card.

Coloured with a mix of Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers and Stampin' blends.

Now I really must do some tidying up!!

I've made quite a few 14cm x 14cm cards recently which has left me with the waste from A4 kraft cardstock.  It's way to good to throw away but if I keep all the scraps then the chances of finding the craft room floor (still missing by the way!) reduce even further!  So I decided to cut a couple of the strips into 2" pieces. I used my corner chomper and one of the Stampin' Up! tag punches to make the scraps into little tags. Perfect for Christmas!  In the interests of keeping it simple I used the Merry Patterns stamp set from Stampin' Up! and stamped the reindeer with Early Espresso.  I used the Tim Holtz stamping platform to get a perfectly placed image every time.

Then finished off with some ribbons.

Pleased with myself that these didn't end up in the bin! 

Enjoy your day whatever you are doing!

Simple Greetings


Start of a new week and crafty mojo seems to be returning!   A busy day yesterday means I well and truly deserve some crafty me time!

What I really should be doing is clearing out the craft room though as it seems the floor has gone missing again! (oops!)  The problem isn't the size of the room, it's that there's too much stuff!

Today's crafty offering comes in the shape of Lil'Inker Designs, and some Stampin' Up" Designer Series Paper.

This is the Christmas Words Tree die and some Merry Little Christmas DSP.

Fun and simple to make! 

Have a lovely day!

Sunday again!

Well, here we are and it's Sunday again! Where do the weeks go?  This week has been incredibly busy; work, appointments, prep for birthdays..  and the time has just disappeared!

I did get a lovely parcel this week though, some Christmas fabrics.  The idea behind these was to make some Christmas gift bags!  Now I just need to find the time!
