I have been really enjoying doing my A to Z Challenge in which I talk about old film stars and I am loving visiting the other posts. Of course dust balls the size of tumbleweeds are floating around my home but next week I shall attack them. I did have time to do some cards and I love Christmas even though this winter has been a long one.
The first card and the 4th card belong to Inspired by a Christmas Carol/Song. My post for the letter I on the A to Z was Burl Ives and I kept singing "Silver and Gold" so I created a card using , well, silver and gold. I love paper and textures and I used my Cuddlebug to make the Poinsettia. The 4th card was also for a challenge I missed (Reason for the Season) but it also reminds me of Away In a Manger. I have these small plastic figures. I repainted them and placed them on the card with big glittery ribbon and used poinsettia's for the corners.
The second card was layered and layered-Love that green paper which is hard to see on the photo but there is no sentiment on it which I think, still speaks for itself.
The 3rd card has glitter on all the roofs of the houses although it is hard to see plus I used stickles for the berries and to surround the ornament frame. I coloured the home in prisma pencils. I stamped and coloured the poinsettia in prisma pencils again and fussy cut and mounted it on the card. The card, itself, is quite shiny which I love(I must have been a magpie in a previous life). It shows a beautiful little village which is quite homey.
The last card was for a challenge as well that I missed-well 2 challenges-a colour challenge and a design one but I missed it again. Still lots of fun and all these cards have Poinsettias on them for the CCAYL challenge and they are all Christmas. I am very proud I got this all done during this month. Everyone have fun and if you have not checked out the A to Z challenge you should:)
