Christmas Time at Southern Girls Challenge!!

Time for our final challenge of the year at Southern Girls challenge and our challenge is of course Christmas. Our sponsors this challenge are

I used Christmas Couple from Rick St Dennis

I decided to go against the norm and make a black and white Christmas card with just a hint of colour! I'm not quite sure if I pulled it off, perhaps I could have added a bit more colour to the image. I then just added some die cut snowflakes and the ribbon!
I hope that you can join us for our Christmas challenge at Southern Girls Challenge!

Debut of LissyBee Stamps and the new "Bee My Friend" collection Blog Hop!

Welcome Friends,
Today is the Debut of Elisabeth Bell's newest line of stamps, and to celebrate, we are having a blog hop!!!
This is the first, of many releases, of "Lissy Bee Stamps" being presented to you by The Lissy Bee Stamps DT.
We are all so excited about this brand new adventure. After hopping with us today, we're sure that you will be just as excited as we are.
What's a blog hop without prizes right!  Well, we have them!!!  So make sure to leave comments along the way.  Your final stop will be the "Queen Bee" herself, Elisabeth Bell's Blog (last on the list)  so please make sure to leave her some love and let her know what you think! 

So before I share my creations using two of the adorable LissyBee Stamps let's just make sure you are in the right place. You should have arrived from Julie's blog, where I am sure you were blown away. If you didn't and want to join in the hop for a chance to win some fab prizes, then head back to the Digi Bell's Blog where the fun kicks off. 
Ok,Lets Get Hopping, Shall we?
Let me introduce you to ROSEBUD. This adorable image was coloured in with tria markers to match the papers. I added some die cut flowers, kindyglitz and rhinestones and pulled out the shrinky dink paper and made the butterflies!

And this beauty is  CLEMENTINE. I absolutely loved colouring her up, with my trias to match the papers! I added the die cut flowers and the buttons. 
So there you have it... two of the 6 gorgeous new LissyBee stamps from the "Bee my Friend"collection.
It is now time to send you on to the next stop which is Lynda.
Don't forget to comment at each stop as there are some fab prizes up for grabs.

AND.... Two lucky commenters will be chosen at random from 2 of our DT Blog comments to win ONE stamp of their choice.

Final challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy!

It is with a little sadness that I write this post as it is our last ever challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this design team but unfortunately with declining numbers joining in with our challenge we felt that it was time to let it go.....
So here are the details of our final challenge which will go for 3 weeks...

Our Sketch:
My card:

I coloured Penny's Pudding in with tria markers. I used papers from a Kaisercraft Christmas Pad, following the sketch, adding the  sentiment from the same paper pad and the buttons!
I hope that you will find some time over this busy period to join us for our last ever challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy

Rachel, Little Angel!

It is my turn to post over on The Digi Bell's blog, so I have a super quick post to share with you as it is nearly 1am here!
I have used Rachel, Little Angel which I have not used for quite a while and I forgot how cute she is!
I decided to keep this CAS because I liked the look of it and din't think I needed to add anything else! I coloured Rachel, Little Angel in with tria markers and added kindyglitz to her wings! I used a border punch on the green spotty paper, then just added the die cut flowers with rhinestones and placed Rachel, Little Angel on a die cut oval.
You can get this sweet image from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.
Oh and before I go, here is another sneak peek of one of the new images coming soon from Lissy Bee stamps!
