Karen's Doodles Challenge#91 DT Card


Morning peeps.  As I am posting this the weather is still lovely.  It was misty first thing this morning but now the sun is peeping through and my little apartment is now cosy and warm.  It is great not having to have the heating on yet, partly because the weather is still mild and partly because the corridors here are stifling hot and we are not on to a cold street.  I will stop gabbling and get on with the reason I came on here.  It is Monday and is time again for another super Challenge over at KAREN'S DOODLES.  This week is :-
"Non Traditional Coloured Christmas Cards".

My DT Card


The dp today is "Contemporary Christmas" Colossal Paper pack by Papermania PMA297.  The fun image is "Snowmen Caroling" from THE SHOP.  The colouring medium is Promarkers.  The snow has been picked out using Twinklets "Diamond Dust"  The image has been cut using "S4-006 Squares" by Spellbinders.  The sentiment is a digi freebie from DIGI DOODLE SHOP and is "Word Art Extra's2".  I have glittered it using "85 Crystal" from Art Institute Glitter.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The snowflakes have been cut using Marianne Design die LR0123 and have been cut out of blue glitter card carrying on the non traditional coloured Christmas card theme.


Anyone can enter our challenges but remember only entries using Karen's Doodles images will
be eligible for the first place prize and Card of the Week.

Karen's Doodles Challenge#90 DT Card

Morning Peeps.  It is Monday morning again and that must mean it is time for another super Challenge to start over at KAREN'S DOODLES .  This week's Challenge is "CELEBRATE WITH SANTA"

My A5 DT Card

The image I have used today is "Santa Christmas".  You can find this in THE SHOP .  The colouring medium is Promarkers and "Old Paper" Distress Inks. The cuffs and bottom trim on Santa's coat has been glittered using "85 Crystal" from Art Institute Glitter.  The ribbon and gold embossed card are from my stash.  The frame and two sentiments are "Sonnets Poemstones" by Sharon Soneff.  This card was very difficult to photography as the frame and also the two sentiments are shiny and they are both raised and shaped.

Anyone can enter our challenges but remember only entries using Karen's Doodles images will
be eligible for the first place prize and Card of the Week. Also please remember you have to use a stamp of some kind, whether it be inked or digi.  Last week there was a lot of you didn't and  sadly you didn't qualify for any prize.

Have a great time and good luck.
