Bugaboo Challenge Day 6 and 7



Day 6

I was out all day yesterday so used an image I had previously printed onto card stock for the colour challenge, 


Day 7 



It was after one o'clock when I looked at the Challenge site for today's Bingo Challenge, after seeing Chris's card Chris is a member of the DT  The freebie on the site was still last week's and the Bingo chart wasn't to be found, so I copied the Bingo requirements form Chris's blog and chose an image I already had to use.The light goes about 3pm here. i used the bottom line, plaid, bugaboo image and star.

Day 5 at Catch the Bug.




The Challenge for Day 5 at Catch the Bug is to create a card based on the photo on the challenge site. Image coloured with Promarkers.

 I chose to make a New Year card, in Scotland, New Year is very much a time for families, it used to be celebrated almost as much as Christmas, sadly there seem to be fewer and fewer people venturing out for the midnight celebrations, unless attending an organised event.

This is a card for hubby for our anniversary at the start of December, he usually forgets until mid way through the day, when he was working the florist nearest his work used to phone and remind him a few days before it.

A Bugaboo digi, and lots of hearts, on the background paper and 2 embossed layers, the black card rubbed back to reveal the white core.

Yuletide Greetings : Winter Foliage




Today's Challenge at Make My Monday was chosen by Emma and the theme she would like to see "Winter Foliage" so think, ivy, holly, pine cones, fir trees, berries etc, it doesn't need to be a Christmas card.



My card was made totally from die cuts from various companies , holly leaves from Joanna Sheen, Pine branches and cone base by Spellbinder, cone segments cut from a sizzix pansy/viola die, each piece was less than 1cm across, were embossed and approx  25-30 added to each base. Sentiment from Tonic with a mat I cut by hand.   I wish I had added a mat behind the embossed one to give some contrast, but overall am reasonably pleased with the result.
