Christmas Monster

I am in love with this cute monster character from DigiStamp Boutique at the moment.  First was the 'boo' image and then there have been two new additions this month- Christmas and Valentines.  This card uses the Christmas version.
I've a feeling that it won't be long until I will be printing him/her out again :-)
The card follows this weeks Sketch Saturday layout.

Alistair Calendar III

This is the third calendar I have made for 2015 using one of the Alistair images from DigiStamp Boutique.  Quite pleased with this one...
 Doesn't he look such a gentleman?
The calendar follows the layout for this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge.

Get Well Soon Chicklet

You never know when you need a 'get well soon' card and so I try (don't usually manage it!) to have one in stock.  This new image from DigiStamp Boutique is just perfect I think.

Cold Nose warm heart

When I saw this image released last week by DigiStamp Boutique I just *had* to have it and make a card.  The card follows the current Sketch Saturday layout.
I will enter this into this weeks I love Promarkers (Christmas song) challenge.

Monkey presents

Was inspired this weekend to use one of the cheeky monkey Christmas images from DigiStamp Boutique again.  This time I have gone for a very red and green theme (Cute Card Thursday challenge) and used the current layout from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Don't Bottle it!

Clare set a challenge for November on her Junk Journalling FB group: the theme 'bottle/bottles'.  This is the junk I started out with:
 A cardboard flyer and an empty squash bottle.  First I added a thin layer of white gesso and then 'stamped' in yellow and green over the flyer using the side of my bottle.  Next came some stamping in black using a proper stamp and then in blue paint using the bottle lid.  Finally I added some bold touches in pink, stamping with the other side of the bottle lid.
To finish off I stamped the sentiment in black.  However it didn't quite look finished and so I found a little bottle stamp in my stash and randomly added that too.  OK a bit of a mess but the thought behind the page was be bold, take a risk and don't bottle out...
I will enter the page into this weeks Stamplorations sketch challenge.

It's a dogs life

I know so many dog fans that I just have to make at least one doggie calendar for 2015.  Stanley, from DigiStamp Boutique, is one of my favourite canine characters and so I used him here.  The layout is the current Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch.

Snow Trio

I know orange and blue are an odd combination on a Christmas card, but it kind of works...(?) Or is it just me? I made this one using a Bugaboo image:
I will enter this into this weeks I love Promarkers (Cute Christmas)  and Little Miss Muffet (anything goes) challenges.

Alistair II

My second calendar for 2015, made again with an Alistair image from DigiStamp Boutique.  Tried to make this one slightly more feminine than yesterdays.  The layout follows the current Sketch Saturday challenge- really liked this sketch!

First 2015 calendar made!

I like to try and make calendars to give as Christmas presents each year- last year I only got to make one (for my parents) and so this year I have started a bit earlier.  This is the first, made with an Alistair image from DigiStamp Boutique (love him!).  I have used this weeks Sketch Saturday layout.  What do you think?

Bobbi and Christmas tree

Bobbi (from DigiStamp Boutique) is just too cute to keep on a hard drive and not printed out often.... This card uses the Bobbi and Christmas tree image released last year.  I have followed the current RetroSketches layout.

Winter Duchess JOY

This card uses the third image in the Winter Duchess set from DigiStamp Boutique.  I like word-art type images and so this one particularly appeals.  Again I have used pink a lot on this card.  Must challenge myself to make a card with an image from this set which doesn't have any pink on it some day...
I will enter the card into this weeks Passion for Promarkers (sparkle) challenge.
