Merry Christmoose

Wow.  We are already starting the second month of the year.  Time for a new challenge at CHNC Extra.  As usual, the theme is Anything Christmas and the sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.


For my card, I have used an image called BUGMISORNMOOSE.



I also used two papers from a christmas paper pad by Sugar and Spice Studio.  The sentiment is from another image by Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers.

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from The Paper Shelter and is coloured with copic markers.  The digital sentiment is one I printed out some time back and was in a box of printed sentiments that I hadn't got around to using.  I thought I knew whose sentiment it was but I can't find it in that folder so I may be incorrect on that!  If anyone recognises it, please leave a comment letting me know whose sentiment it is.  I die-cut a heart from glitter cardstock using a die from Marianne's.  Matting is blue cardstock.  I also added some pearls from Rosie's Studio.

Erhu

My daughter has an interest in musical instruments and was showing me pictures of various instruments.  Among the instruments she was showing me was an erhu.  I immediately recognised it as the instrument in an image I have from Aurora Wings.  I think she was impressed that I had a digital stamp with an erhu in it!

Pink Green and Yellow

I went to buy a CD from a Hi-Fi store yesterday and came across a really great dollar store that I didn't know about!  I bought a few ribbon packs and a couple of packs of glitter embellishments (hearts and stars).  I didn't have enough money with me to get anything else so when I get a chance I am going to go back there and have a good look around!



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes

The Outlawz Tuesday Challenge - pink, yellow, dark green and embellishment with B

Creative Craft Cottage - Ribbons and/or Pearls

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I was thrilled when I realised that the main three colours in this paper matched the colour palette at The Outlawz Tuesday Challenge.  The image is from Lemon Shortbread and is coloured with copic markers.  I matted with some bright pink cardstock.  I also die-cut a butterfly from the same cardstock.  The ribbon is from a pack of ribbons that I bought yesterday. 

Heart Warming Moments

It is the midway point of the first challenge of 2017 at 12 Months of Christmas and the theme is Out with the Old, In with the New. So, include in your creation somehting old and something new. My old is the digital paper which I have had for a couple of years and the die I used to cut the image.  My new is the santa head embellishment and the sentiment both of which I purchased recently. Our sponsor for this challenge is Ike's Art

I have used an image from Ike's Art along with a paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.



I also used the embellishments I purchased recently as well as a die from Spellbinders to die-cut the image.
