This A4 card has been made with two downloads given to me by two dear friends as I thought the images went very well together. The snow has been produced by Polar White Flowersoft. The backing paper is from my stash.
This card was one of three cards that I made at my craft club last week. The instructions come from my craft friend Viv. It is a 6 x 6 square card. I do not know the stamps used as they were borrowed at the club. The Butterflys & Flowers were stamped on vellum and watercoloured with Frosted Mellow Cosmic Shimmer and Bronze Medallion Twinkling H20's. The pocket to put the sentiment in was produced this way.
1) Take a piece of patterned paper 19cm x 19cm. With pattern side down, fold in half. Turn and fold again (so you have 4 square sections)
2) Turn paper over so pattern is facing upwards. Fold one edge halfway to the middle, turn paper round and fold in the other side so that the edges meet in the middle. Repeat on the other 2 sides (so you have created 16 squares)
3) Lay the paper pattern side up. Fold the corners into the centre.
4) Turn paper back so plain side is up.
5) Fold the corners in half so you have 4 small triangles facing upwards on each other.
6) Push the sides in to make a square pocket.
7) Cut a piece of square card slightly smaller than 9.5cm
8) Slot inside the square pocket.
This card has been made by using a metal embossing template with white embossing paste. Afterwards glitter has been sprinkled over before it drys. Borders and greeting is silver peel offs. This was the second card made at my craft club and was Tina's idea.
This is the third card made at my club and was the idea of Natalie. Mine I afraid turned out a bit lopsided. Lol!!! The stamp was Natalie's so I am sorry I don't know which one it was.
This last card is also an image off the download sheet from a dear friend. I have decoupaged the image. It is a 6 x 6 square card. The backing paper is from my stash. The sentiment has been computer generated.

I have made this card by using Paisley Positive Enamel Glazed card from Kanban CRD8185 for the main card. The stamp is from Papermania. This image has been mounted on to Black Satin card and has been coloured with Promarkers and glittered in places with Sakura Glitter pens. It is an A6 card and the plus colour I have chosen is of course yellow.
I know the image is probably more appropiate for Easter than Christmas time but I just fancied doing it. Lol!!!
I do hope you enjoy entering this 2nd challenge.
This one is made with bp from Google and put through MCS. Image is also from Google and printed on Satin Photo Paper - mounted on to silver Mirri Card. Sentiment is from my stash.

The next layer I have also matted onto Silver Mirri card a blue pearlised card put through the Cuttlebug with a Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder. I have used a black ink pad with detail clear embossing powder to stamp the Snow Choir image. This jolly stamp is from Creative Expressions HH912K. The image has been watercoloured with Twinkling H20's. I have also picked out the snowman and snow with Polar White from the Diamond Range Flower Soft.

Ann is a very talented lady and has created many digi stamps and backing papers which can be found on her site.
This A5 card has been produced by using The Royal Horticultural Society Collection CDROM from Joanna Sheen. This is a 3 disc set. Both the image and backing paper have come here and are from Disc 1 and is taken from the Caroline Maria Applebee section. She was born in London in 1799 and appears to have been the daughter of a wealthy middle-class family that had conservatories and greenhouses. Very little is known about Miss Applebee. It is believed she was a talented amateur artist whose work were unpublished. Her paintings feature a large range of plants, including the more rare exotic varieties of the day, that would only survive under glass. I have used Stardream card for the main card and also a contrasting colour for the matting and layering card, both have been embossed around the edges on a scoreboard. The bow is from my stash. The pearls on four corners of the topper are also from my stash and are Crystal Stickers by Mark Richards - Style # 1952 size 5mm.
I hope you can join in the fun and this challenge lasts for two weeks, details on Ann's blog. For this first challenge Ann is offering a prize for one lucky person. The winner will receive any 5 digi stamps and 5 backing paper collection of their choice. Currently there are 12 backing paper collections and 18 digi stamps - although there will most likely be more to choose from by the time the winner is announced. You can check out what you might win on the pages at the top of the blog, and they are of course available to purchase at Crafty Ann's now.

I have been busy making cards both for sale and personal. Not sure how we will stand with posting cards but thought I had better go ahead and make them incase a miracle happens and the strike is over by the time they have to be posted.
The three cards below have been made by downloading the Disney images fromm a free site on Google. They are just outline drawings to colour in. I have used Promarkers to colour them and it is my first attempt of using them. I didn't try to do the shading being as it was the first time, I just wanted to get the feel of them. Other half said it looked like I had downloaded them coloured, not sure if he meant it as a compliment or not? I cut round the images and mounted them on to Spellbinders diecuts put through my Cuttlebug.
The seven cards below are from a Daisy & Dandelion kit I bought from QVC. They are a mixed kit. There was some nice stamps both Christmas and Birthday images. Also decoupage images on a sheet again both Christmas & Birthday. Along with peel offs. The cards below of course are easy and quick ones from the decoupage sheets.
