well i thought i would have a go at the christmas and birthday challenge ~ie make one birthday card and one xmas card using the weeks sketch!!
for the birthday card i used this wonderful pennyblack image (from kristin), see d`s wording and prima flowers, brads and paper from my stash. finished with some glitter.

for the xmas card i used a pennyblack image (from jo), i also included the "my time to craft" challenge which this week is " snowmen" and "basicgrey" theme this week is "glitter".
used figgy pudding ~shiver and trinket basicgrey papers, silver glitter card and red handmade paper, quickutz poinsettia die, see d`s wording, iceblue, icicle, red, gold and silver glitter. (need to click on the pics for the glitter detail)
hope you are having a great day ~if not a little soggy, byeeeeeeeeeeee xx
