The ribbon is from Papermania. The spirelli topper I made myself from gold glitter card & red thread. The doggie is from my stash which has been decoupaged xx
The 2nd item I created was a box using the Little Boy & Blue Xmas downloads.The Blue Xmas paper was printed onto cardstock & scored using my UCC. I decoupaged the Little Boy & secured him to the top of the box. I glittered the pompom on his hat & used a Turn Styles snowflake in the top corner.
The last card I made was using the Little Girl download.
The card is white cardstock & I cut a snowflake circle on my robo using a template that I downloaded from UKScrappers. This was cut on Aqua Sparkle paper from Inspire Me Papers. The little girl was then decoupaged, glittered & added to the corner of the card. A simple Merry Christmas peel off was then added to the centre.

The image is from Tracey Miller of Fred,She Said, & I just couldn't resist it. The sentiment is also from the same set but I printed it out on my Dymo instead. The blue xmas tree background paper was downloaded off a cardmaking cd & cut with decorative scissors. The snowflake & star are from a sheet of embellishments from Crafty Bitz. The mini snowflake peel offs, gems & ribbon are all from my stash. xx
Friday, 17 October 2008
All the items used on this card were found in amongst my stash. I used the sketch from another challenge I entered recently but converted it to fit onto A5. The hardest part was to find some male orientated embellishments to go in the squares, so I ended up using peel offs xx

The image was from a downloadable set that I got from a couple of years ago & was in the same set as the cat I used the other day. The rest of the things I used were all in my stash, so hubby is once again a very happy man.
The second card I made last night was using a sketch from a Spoonful of Sugar. This is the first time I have done one of their challenges & although the sketch looked quite complicated I am pleased with the way it has turned out.The glittered vellum & gems are from Papermania, the snowflake paper is from Craft Creations. The sentiment in the corner is from a sheet from Fred,She Said. The rest of the bits I have used were from my stash.

However I have finally got round to doing the Sketch Saturday challenge. This has been set by Gill from the DT. The sketch looked reasonably easy until I decided to do it on A5 Landscape!Here is my interpretation of it. The backing paper & snowman are by Samantha Murphy at Scrapbookingmad.com. She has the most amazing downloads that I have seen for a while. The other bits & pieces were all in my stash, hubby will be happy that at last it is being used!!

The first one I did is Mickey Mouse. I used a yellow card & embossed stars on it using a stencil & light box. I then added blue glitter to the dots. A small "M" dome sticker was placed in the corner.
I just love this Nemo one. I used 4 pictures & decoupaged them up. I had some 3D stickers of morning glory that were attached to some green covered wire, so very carefully I pulled the flowers of & attached the wire to give a seaweed effect. Again a dome sticker featuring the letter "N" was added to the corner.I used a bit of Poetic license on this ATC. It is Roly from "One Hundred & One Dalmations" I used a plain white ATC & found a dalmation spot background. This was printed onto paper & stuck down. I then decoupaged Roly. As a knitter I have quite a bit of wool lying around I used a short strand of white glitter wool & a strand of black wool, punched a hole then threaded through. An "O" is again added in the corner.
This last one I kept fairly simple. Again pluto has been decoupaged & a small bee 3D sticker was added behind him. The "P" dome sticker was again added to the corner.
