The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

How cute is Patches Puppy – Surprize!Surprize! by Crafty Sentiments Designs?Decided to do a little texture colouring on this sweet pup with my Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.These lovely papers are Dovecraft  Garden Party which I must confess despite buying them,and some beautiful embellishments from the same collection,about two years ago I have only used once before – shocking 😮 Thought I’d go for a bit of a celebratory theme and hand cut a banner as part of the layering.Feeling the need to use part of the coordinating stash I cut a couple of short lengths of ribbon and looped them in to tabs.The sentiment,stamped onto card,has had the same treatment.I’ve doubled up the Blossoms and adhered a gem to the centre.All done 🙂

A Sweet Elf :)

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Here’s the utterly adorable Candy Elf A by A Day For Daisies.Thought I’d try a non-traditional Christmas colour palette along with a different colour combo rather than just grab my usual favourite pens.As a starting point to the card I wanted to try an idea with these recently received magazine freebie stamps.So out came the kraft card and some white embossimg powder plus my Versamark pad.Have to say I’m pretty impressed with the results,not only from the quality of the stamps but the embossing powder too.A die cut poinsettia topped with a jute twine threaded button and some pompom trim have been added as finishing touches.I did stamp and heat emboss a greeting at the bottom of the card and enhanced it with chalks,but the camera has failed to pick it up.Also it has failed to show the shine on the sweetie given by the 3D Crystal Lacquer I applied.It all looks so much better IRL…never mind as the little elf really deserves to be the star of the show 😉

This is actually a card for NEXT Christmas (2017) as I’ve already finished all those for this year 😀
