Design Team

 For this weeks project, I made a petal box and I used Winter Circle Sentiments digi
from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps.

For this weeks project, I chose the beautiful Noelle, provided by our generous sponsor Limited Runs. I added little adhesive stones to add all the light and shine that I love from Christmas time.

For my card this week I've used this cutie from Bugaboo, called Kidzreindeer She's been 3D-ed and printed straight onto the snowy background, which I've used loads of times, along with the sentiment. The papers were freebies from a crafty magazine, which luckily hadn't been packed away with all my stash! And of course, I managed to find enough Promarkers to colour her in! It's all been layered on to some shinny silver card, with a few silver peel-offs and loads of glitter!

I've also been a bit naughty and added two golden oldies, also from Bugaboo. You can add projects, which are older than the challenge, as long as we haven't seen them, and you've made them within the last ten days!

Hi everyone! I love the Christmas! To this challenge I made this card with the lovely Winter Penguin
to our sponsor Limited Runs.  

The little penguin is playing in the snow. He loves the Chrismas also.

Cazzy will be here later... Here I am!
Oh I'm late, it is 1.00 am Monday morning (there was a good reason, which I will explain on my blog) and I really need my bed, but devotion to duty..... I think this Stella Note to Santa  from Bugaboo is just too funny! I've added two different Christmas ribbons from Crafty Ribbons (hey Ali - how about Bah Humbug ribbon?).

I can't resist Limited Runs cupcakes, maybe because I can't eat the real thing! This one is from a set of two called Penguin Set Cupcake, one has a blank sign.    Again the Singing Penguin ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and is exclusive to them, perfect with the penguin on the cupcake I think!
