By The Cute and Girly, some Little Snippets and a Christmas Card.

There's still time to get your entries in over at By The Cute and Girly where the challenge theme this month is (All Things Bright and Beautiful). It's a nice easy one this month, so you have no excuse to enter :)
The challenge runs until the last day of the month and there's some great prizes to be won.

I have a card to show that I made for the challenge at the start of the month which I haven't showed yet on my blog.

I coloured the cute CC designs swiss pixie with Promarkers and used some Dazzling Diamonds glitter from SU! for her wings. The papers are some from a fab blogging friend (thanks hunnie), and the pretty embellies are all from Little Snippets Etsy Store.

I used the Sheer Applique Leaves (this is the first time I have used these ones and it won't be the last because they are sooo pretty) and a Scrappy Daisy Flower Embroidered Applique

And the gorgeous butterfly which I added a few gems to is one of the Swirly Sheer Delicate Lace Butterflies.

I know that Geraldine now has some Halloween embellies in her Little Snippets store including some bats and orange and black crotchet flowers which would be perfect for your Halloween projects :) So why not pop over and have a look? and if your not into Halloween, there's plenty of pretty embellies for every taste. I also noticed she has the cutest little Hello Kitty style felt embroidered embellishments that are just perfect for little girl cards and projects. I know my girls would love them!

Now for a Christmas Card that I made about 2 weeks ago and haven't got around to posting yet.

I actually made this for one of the Whiff Of Joy challenges which was to use a tag but of course the challenge finished long ago so I thought I would post it anyway and see what other challenges it fits this week.
So for the tag part, I cut a tag shape freehand from the dp and used a Making Memories rub on which comes with the flock paper to put on top and I used card candy glued to a piece of string (which I pinched from Barry lol) instead of just tying the string through a hole....why did I do that??? because stupid here no longer has a little hole punch and kinda mucked up making the hole, so the card candy hides my muck up! lol

I think these papers are Dovecraft ones but I'm not 100% on that. What I do know though is the stamp I used is a Henry Mouse from Whiff Of Joy which I bought 2 christmas' ago and forgot about him and didn't use him until last christmas once and forgot about him again, so this is only his 2nd inking in 2 years! I know that is just terrible because he's really cute, so will have to use him on a few cards this year. He is coloured of course with the usual Promarkers, and I used a bit of flower soft on his hat.

The snowflakes are punched with a Dovecraft punch and covered in Twinklets to make them sparkly and a blue gem in the middle of each of them.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Papertake Weekly- Creature Comforts
Simon Says Stamp- Dies To Die For (I used scalloped circle nesties)
The Paper Shelter- Anything Goes
Anything Goes Challenge- Anything Goes

Two wonderful cards Lora, the design and image on the first is beautiful the embellishments look rather special I am afraid I would use them sparingly, lol, that second card is not only cute but both fab and fun, super cards.
