By The Cute and Girly projects and Rhianna's DT card

I can't believe it's December already!! Where has the year gone?!
The monthly challenge is up at By The Cute and Girly and our challenge this month is "children". I'm sure a lot of you will have Christmas Cards or gifts to make for a child, so why not enter them into this months challenge and see if you can win something for your efforts!

I made 2 cards for this months challenge and also some digital scrapbook pages, so quite a lot to show in this post and I also have Rhianna's card to show that she done for her DT sample at Messy's Mini Missions challenge blog for kids.

Isn't this image from Whimsy Stamps just the sweetest? I coloured her with Promakers and used stickles on her wings. The papers are Bo Bunny (love these papers!), christmas sentiment is one from a magazine that I got a while back. The large snowflake is cut from mountboard with an original Sizzix die and covered with flower soft and the small ones were done with a Dovecraft punch and covered with SU! Dazzling Diamond glitter, oh and I used some glittered lace from my stash.

My next card is also a DT card for Fred She Said, who is one of our sponsors at By The Cute and Girly this month.
I used Emma and the Chickadee and as always coloured with Promarkers. The papers are Kaisercraft as is the sentiment and the snowflake is another mountbaord one covered in chunky German glass glitter. Unfortunately it looks really uneven in this pic and some bits look gold because I had to scan it, but irl it is all pink and lovely and shimmery. This glitter is really fab and has soooo much sparkle. I just wish I had some of the white and silver so I could cover all my snowflakes with it!

The rest of my DT makes were done digitaly and are all pics from last Christmas. The first one is my youngest Daughter Chiara and her Papa. Her Papa is registered blind (he has no sight in one eye and only partial sight in the other) and Chiara thinks she has to look after him.... bless her. She really is a Papa's girl so I had to add that in the layout :)

The rest are pics of my kids (mostly my 2 girls but I did catch my son Liam in a few too) on Christmas day at my In Laws house except one that was taken with Santa at their school lol.

I think Rhianna was really happy with her pressies in the next one! lol and I was even brave enough to add a pic of myself (with Chiara)!

And finally a DT card that my Daughter Rhianna did for Messy's Mini Missions.

She made this card without any help from me. The only thing she didn't do was cut out the snowflake because I die cut a pile of them a few weeks ago from mountboard as it is actually a die that her old teacher owns, but she lets me use her Sizzix die cutting machine and all her die's when I am at the school. I do have a Cuttlebug of my own, but don't have any snowflake dies so it's great to be able to borrow her one :)
The challenge this month is "Things With Wings" and Nikki at Wags n Whiskers who is one of the sponsors this month gave the kids some of her images to play with for the challenge.
Rhianna coloured the sweet image with my Promarkers (and gave her some lovely eyeshadow! :)) and used some ribbon and papers from my stash, and copied Mum a bit with the snowflake which she covered with the pink German glass glitter.
You can see the sparkle of this glitter a bit better on Rhianna's card than mine (how come the same scanner can make 2 things that are exactly the same, look so different!!).

Right I think that is enough photo's for one day!
Remember to have a look at my blog candy which is in the top post!
