This card is using a fantastic decoupage sheet designed by a lovely lady called Debbie A. The snowflake paper is again from my cardmaking cd. I have glittered the stars on the tree & added crystal lacquer to the holly berries.

The spot backing paper was from my favourite cd, am using this all the time at the moment, the white card & orange pearlescent paper were from my stash. The ribbon is from my stock & the decoupage sheet is the one I created from a tube by DS PSP Place.
Almost everything on the card is from my stash which is great. The decoupage of the tigers I think is just adorable. The "Happy Birthday" was cut on my robo using a template that I got from UKScrappers

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

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.

The backing paper is from a cardmaking cd that my mum has which I have glittered with irridescent glitter glue. I have then added a paper ribbon from the same cd. The church is a decoupage sheet that I had downloaded from Hobby Tool. I have then added 3 squares cut from the paper ribbon which I have glittered & added a gem in the centre.
The paper , image & card are all from my stash. The bow was cut on my robo from a template on UKScrappers. The stitching pattern is from Sam at Cardstitching.co.uk

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!!

Here is my entry for this weeks ABC challenge. It was a sketch challenge set by Katharina from Whiff of Joy Stamps. I found this one quite a hard challenge but I think I will play with this sketch again to get it a bit better. I cut the ovals on my robo & the paper is from a set that my Mum purchased last year xx
