Fizzy Christmas

I managed at the weekend to go through all the craft stuff that I have accumulated in the downstairs of my house (this doesn't include all the items that I have in my bedroom but its a start) and its surprising how many things you have that you don't remember you even bought and somethings you wish you hadn't :)

I reorganised everything in my craft units and then needed some new containers but I finally sorted it so I can find things. I also organised my basics; flowers, plain card etc by colour to make it easier to match the extras to each project. I then realised I had lots of kits that needed using up so I decided that each month I will get out a kit and wherever possible just use that kit to make my projects. The first kit I'm going to use is my Fizzy Moon sets (Christmas and non Christmas).

This card is a commission from one of the parents at work who wanted a Christmas card for his wife and the poinsettia decoupage and papers from Fizzy Moon were perfect for what I needed.

This card is for the following challenges:

* Christmas - Creative InspirationsMy Time To Craft,
* Sketch - Little Red Wagon,
* Anything Goes Christmas - Color Throwdown,
* Favourite challenge of 2015 - Christmas Colours - Hiding In My Craft Room
* Anything Goes - 613 Avenue Create,

Polkadoodles Challenge - Anything Goes

Hi everybody, what a busy week its been and I can't believe that this time next week will be Christmas Day!!! OMG!! I at last have finished my Christmas choice boxes for the staff at work and all my Christmas shopping I now just have to wrap everything.

Work is mad to as all the children I look after (between 12 and 14, 3 - 5 year olds) are absolutely high as kites :) Fun but exhausting!

Its time for another challenge over at Polkadoodles which is one of my favourites - Anything goes. For my card I have used one of the Florabunda Adult Colouring Book images. I have used my new Chameleon Colouring pens to colour them in and then added some Memory box butterfly die cuts, glitter and gems. I also typed in my own greeting to finish the card.

I used a die from Spellbinders to cut out the circle and layered it on some of the new Shades card from Tattered Lace.

This card is also for the following challenges:

* Anything Goes - Art By Miran613 Avenue CreateCraft Your PassionsTuesday ThrowdownDeep OceanPenny'sThe Paper Shelter,
* Bright & bold colours - ABC Challenge,

Crafty Catz Challenge #305 ~ Sparkle & Shine

I was going through my old stamps and found this little cutie and thought it would be perfect as a Clean and simple card and would be ideal for the latest challenge over at Crafty Catz which is 'Sparkle and Shine'.

Unfortunately I can't remember where I got this stamp from :) I think it might be a free stamp from the cover of a magazine. I also added some stickles, gems and added it to a sparkly card blank.
