What can I say except I made some cards in the last 2 weeks. It is a big birthday month with 7 birthdays ending with mine on June 2nd! My hubby just turned 60 and looks way younger which is great for him:) I made a card for him but it will turn up later so it is not in this round. Without further adieu, here are my cards
Cuddlebug, sizzex machine, stickers, village cutout, markers, glitter, rubber stamp, distress dye inks, white marker

CHNC2-Always Anything Goes Christmas
I have this village die cut and used the blue background that I created with dye inks and had cut out the village. I had the hole or silhouette of the village so I just cut out the village with white cardstock and inserted it into the cutout part. I coloured the village with markers, I used glossy accents on the village and sparkle on the snowy parts-hard to see how it looks here as it looks like a shiny sparkly goo. Anyhoo, I used the white marker on the raised bumps for snow and adhered it to cardstock with the last being a beautiful shimmery gold cardstock which was run through the cuddlebug to get the raised design. I finished it off with the Happy Christmas stamp and stickers for the borders.
Poinsettis stamp, scissors, tombow markers, gold die stamp pad and gold embossing powder, border stickers
Craftyhazelnut Challenge #1-Use some gold
HLS-Watercolor challenge-use some red
This was fun to do! I took watercolour paper, stamped and embossed the image and then, using my tombow markers, I coloured in certain areas. I took my watercolour brush and blended the colours. I cut out the image and placed it down on the cardstock. I stamped and coloured the image again but just the flowers, cut the flowers out and placed them over top the image using pop up dots for a 3D effect. I added the border stickers and some stars.
Poinsettia die cut, distress inks, sizzex machine, cuddlebug machine, embossing folder, antique gold dye pad, some gems, of course not real:)

HLS-Anything Goes with Dies
This is obviously girly unless you are a Liberace wanna be. I cut out the poinsettia image and using the distress ink pads and some water, I coloured the flower. I put the cardstock through the cuddlebug for the raised image and took the gold ink pad and lightly skimmed over it so the raised image got some colour. Added the bling and Voila! This will be a nice birthday card for my sister whose birthday is Dec. 22nd.
Various blue ink pads, a sponge, rubber stamps, cardstock, stickers

This was fun... I say it again but it's true. You can play with the colours and can use the same stamps and get a different take every time. The glossy card really takes well to the colour you rub on with the sponge. The rubber stamps are all from one block, sort of speak, to create this scene. My dear friend, who loves the tropics and met his partner when he was in Thailand, just recently got married. He loves blue, the tropics and the ocean so I thought this works for him. They loved the card!
