It was delightful to work with, THANK YOU Manue!
The design team's cards are really wonderful; hope you'll stop by over there to see them. "Our Isa" didn't do a card for this week's challenge, and although I'm missing her lovely creations, I imagine she's just a little busy getting ready to move from the UK to Canada next month! I look forward to catching up with her when her move is complete, and she's settled in to her new Canadian home in Toronto wih her husband and their children. It will certainly be an adventurous Christmas for them all!

As soon as I saw this beautiful, pensive woman, I knew I wanted to create a card for a friend who's struggling with some of life's unexpected circumstances. I've submitted this piece for the TGIF challenge this week too, where the theme is "Vintage," and for Crazy Amigo, where the theme is the moon! I decreased the woman image, made her a little more subdued, positioned her inside the window, then positioned a moon image as a reflection in the window. After printing, I distress inked the whole piece, wanting a subdued, vintage look, used the sentiment from Quietfire Design, and added platinum UTEE in the top right area of the window frame.

This week's CBH challenge is to use alcohol inks. This week's Cuttlebug challenge is to emboss on a die cut. I inked up some gold matte paper with Lettuce and Stream alcohol inks, cut the ornament shape with a Cuttlebug Die, then embossed it using two Cuttlebug folders, and added some Stickles on the roofs of the houses.I cut an ornament shape from chipboard as well and glued the paper to the chipboard, for a little more stability. Then I outlined the ornament with gold krylon ink, and stamped the sentiment (from Quietfire Design). The little pearls are from "Kaiser Scrapbooking." Thanks for taking the time to visit today!

This week at Arty Girlz, the challenge is to take inspiration from a blog. So I decided to use the colour scheme from my own blog to do these challenges. Thanks Crissi and Julie!

So, that's the genesis for this card, where I've
combined three challenges.
Over at Arty Girlz, the challenge is to use some freehand work. Oh my. I use stamps because I can't even draw stick people! So the best I could do was to dot black ink around the border of my oval, and you wouldn't believe how long it took me to do THAT! The oval on my card is the third dotted attempt. Sigh. So, Crissi and Julie, I really did try! ;)
I stamped the SU heart with Vintage Paper Distress Ink, then overstamped the Quietfire Design sentiment in India Black Ink. This picks up the theme over at Created By Hand,
which is to use black and brown tones.
Thanks for stopping by today. Now, in my lingering celebratory mood, I'm off to see everyone else's wonderful things!
