It's Monday which means I'm very late with my post BUT it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is


"Use some green".

Hazel offers a prize for the winner, chosen at random, which this week is this:

I have used backing paper from a huge pad I bought from Lidl, together with a "Merry Christmas" wreath die-cut.

Looking forward to seeing your makes.

My card was super quick and easy! I've used a pre-printed card blank and simply added a couple of die-cuts. I've made a few of these so that's another batch done and it's only the first of February!

BUTTERFLIES AND SPARKLES


HELLO BLOGLAND!
I am here today with my February make for Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

You can enter with any creation as long as you use PATTERNED PAPER! Easy peasy. We aim to encourage you to use up your stash of patterned papers We are all guilty of having too many. Haha!
Hazel offers a prize to a randomly chosen winner, and she is willing to post anywhere in the world.

For my card, I have used a pre-cut card ( I'm not that clever!) together with a background paper from a pad I bought from The Works. The beautiful butterfly lady die cut is the focal point, and I've added heart-shaped gems for that special touch. This card was made for my neighbour to give to his wife. She loved it!

Looking forward to seeing your makes.

QUICK CHRISTMAS TREES


Hope you are all well and 2020 has been good to you so far.
It's Saturday so that means it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is


"Use a sentiment".

Hazel offers a prize for the winner, chosen at random, which this week is this:


Love to Craft
Season's Greetings
6" x 6" paper pad
8  designs 30 sheets

I was having a rummage through my stash in the week, looking for some large square card bases. Didn't find those but did find two packs of Dovecraft embossed Christmas cards. I thought these would work well with this weeks theme, so I've made all ten! I used little Christmas tree die cuts, three different designs, together with "Merry Christmas" sentiment , all cut from pale cream glittered card. I've added the little holly sprigs to some, left others plain. 
That's twelve Christmas cards made already this year! Haha! 
Looking forward to seeing your makes.
