Elphine House Australia Challenge - Snowflakes and Swirls!

Well i hope you have all had a excellent Christmas! Here in Scotland we are just at the end of boxing day but i know most of my teamies from EHA are well into Thursday. I was trying to get this post done last night (Christmas night) but Carrie and the boys were getting toys and things out boxes, play with them etc so the laptop got set aside to have time with the kids.

I am here with my Design Team Card for the new challenge over at Elphine House Australia!

The theme this time is.....
   Snow Swirled!!!  
We are looking for swirls and flourishes on a cold snowy winters card!
Here is mine....                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

I am a bit of a fan of white and white card at the moment. I have added lots of layers and die cut embellishment to give it depth. 

Here is the Card Recipe - 
Image - Danny with Gift from Elphine House Australia coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Paper - White hammered card
Dies/punches - Spellbinders scallop circle, label 1, Moroccan accents, Marianne flourish and swirls, Cricut Poupourri cartridge for Snowflakes.
Embellishments - Tulle, Gems and charm with chain all from stash.

Back at Last!


Well i am back at last! Carrie got a cancellation date for her surgery on the 13th December but she had a chest infection the week running up to it so had to keep her off school to try and get her better and keep her away from getting the sickness bugs that are going around. She catches everything because of her Immune Suppressant meds. We managed to get her chest clear and no bugs caught but Carrie cant to anything without there being a drama! While under anesthetic her oxygen levels dropped and needed to have them breath for her for a while. As she woke up a bit more they changed her onto the oxygen mask which was on until she picked up. They have no idea why this happened, they did a chest x ray which was clear.

Anyway i just wanted to pop by with my latest creation.
I made this for Carrie just before she went into hospital. Its a wall hanging and has a matching desk tidy.
Here it is...

 Papers - old ones i got years back so unknown. 
 Dies/Punches - Fiskers scallop punch, Tim Holtz Rosette die, Butterfly Punch also Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing folder.
Embellishments - Pink tulle, buttons and gems and bakers twine.

 Here is close up ...

This is the wall hanging and the desk tidy...
Carrie was over the moon with them both.

I am going to enter this into a few challenges...

Well thats leaves just one more thing.....
Merry Christmas to everyone and i hope 2013 is a fabulous year for you all!
Thanks for all the lovely comments you have left over this last year, i appreciate it so much!
Take Care,

Crafty Calendar Challenge - White Christmas

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. As i write this post we have heavy snow falling outside, its been falling since around 9pm and looks like near a couple of inches and still coming! Because of the snowfall we have had the past few years the schools all have "Severe Weather Procedures" arranged so the kids have online course work and communication via email/internet. We live in a small village so the high schools are about 5/6miles away which mean kids going on the bus run but in bad weather they stop running.
We have also been getting ready for Christmas this weekend. We have got the tree up and got all our Christmas ornaments out. I love sitting in the quiet with the tree lights and some candles on! Bliss!

Anyway enough snow talk! I am here with my card for Crafty Calendar Challenge! The theme this time   is "White Christmas" (very appropriate if i may say so considering the weather we have tonight!)

Here is my card!

I am really loving the new Digi Stamps from Wee Stamps....think i have a "wee" addiction at the moment! This image is called  Angelica. You must check out the other digis over there, they are fab. She is coloured with promarkers and i tried out faux snow using my white pen and glossy accents with white glitter.

My papers are "Home for Christmas" from Papermania with kraft cardstock.
The dies used are spellbinders scalloped circles, snowflake and mistletoe vine is cut from my Cricut Expression with Potpourri Cartridge.
Flowers from Wild Orchid Craft, ribbon, jute and charm from stash and                                                       sentiment was in a freebie with a magazine i think.

Thats me for now. I have not had much sleep tonight, well none so far and its 5am. Still fighting with this illness and lack of sleep is getting to me.
Please pop over to Crafty Calendar Challenge, check out the girls DT cards and let us see your White Christmas projects....we love to see your creations and you might even be the winner of our prize from Crafty Sentiments!

Have a great Monday!
