CHRISTMAS BAUBLES

 


Good morning bloggers! I'm a  bit late posting this. So sorry to all! So it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge . As always, it's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge as long as it's Christmas related, with the optional theme this week of "use some patterned paper".

The winner is picked randomly each week and Hazel is willing to post the prize anywhere in the world! This week's prize is this:
Crafter's Companion Metal Die

I have used a sheet of patterned paper which I've cut with a curved die, adding an embossed sentiment.

The reason I am late is good old Covid! I tested positive and although I've not been too poorly (backache and nausea were the worst symptoms), it's completely thrown me out of kilter. There was so much confusion with the Covid app, and Test and Trace and emails, all telling me different times to isolate. I was finally allowed back to work last Friday, thank goodness!

Normal service has now been resumed!
Looking forward to seeing your makes.

THINKING OF YOU

 


Good morning!
It's a new month so it's new challenge time at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge . As always, it's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge but you must use some patterned paper or card. Hazel offers a prize each month and is willing to post anywhere in the world so anyone can enter, and you can enter as many times as you like! This month's prize is this:

Make and Create
"Soft Colours" Design Pad
30 sheets

I have made a floral card using a few dies and some beautiful floral paper. I cut the sentiment twice, once in floral and again in solid green, layering them up to give a shadowed effect.

I'm feeling rough. I thought we had got through our little Covid nightmare but I've just done another lateral flow test and there's a feint line so it's a PCR test for me, and no work! I'm so fed up!

Looking forward to seeing you makes.

EMBOSSED SNOWFLAKES

 


Good morning bloggers! It's Saturday so it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge . As always, it's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge as long as it's Christmas related, with the optional theme this week of "Use embossing, wet or dry".

The winner is picked randomly each week and Hazel is willing to post the prize anywhere in the world! This week's prize is this:
Make and Create
"Moonlight Magic"
Paper Pack
30 sheets 10 designs

I've made a card using backing paper from a freebie magazine kit, onto which I've layered a circle cut from snowflake embossed card, adding a sentiment cut from the same backing paper.

I've had a bit of a week. My son tested positive for Covid last Sunday after visiting his girlfriend in London. We put him in prison (his room) and cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. 
On Tuesday, I became ill, husband followed suit on Wednesday. Both of us tested negative. On Thursday, we all tested again, ALL negative. Son's girlfriend, negative. Her brother who travelled with my son, also negative. Symptoms have been similar to a minor cold but with very bad aches and pains, especially back pain.
Feeling a bit better today but we're still awaiting my son's PCR test results, should've had them yesterday :-(
Onwards and upwards we go!

Looking forward to seeing your makes.

I have used another colouring I did in a Kit and Clowder class. The image is called "Aurora Woods" and is from Ching-Chou Kuik. You can find it here. I colured her in with Coics and added white gel pen for the snowy effect.
I've simply layered the image up on some backing paper rom Michele R Designs (it's beautiful soft snowflake print but you can really see that in the photo!).
I've had a wonderful week, managed to get tickets for TWO Foo Fighters concerts next year! So happy!!

Looking forward to seeing your makes.
