Thank You

I hope you all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year, it used to be the main event of the Festive Season in Scotland but it's popularity has declined especially over the past 30-40 years.

A relatively CAS  Thank You card, made using watercolours and salt, I am trying to experiment with techniques I haven't used before or am not confident about. The stamp is from Sheena Douglas.

A Christmas card for a special lad, clipart free, with the stipulation it is for personal use only, there are several sites which do Disney Clipart. I decoupaged the image and teamed it with ribbon from stash and die cut  circles embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder.

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.
