Woo hoo......

......I did it!
I challenged myself to find the time to join in with more fun challenges than I have ever managed before this week......and with these 2 cards that makes 5 challenges for me in one week!! Its a personal best....really must knuckle down to some in depth cleaning next week though :0(

So...my first card is for the Christmas challenge blog and their theme this week was "Vintage Christmas".

For me, the colours represent oldy world & vintage and for added measure I distressed the edged using my scissors & "Antique Linen" ink.
Now this card also fits in with this weeks Papertake Challenge ~ "Fake it"
http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/
I have used faux stitching on the design paper and my oldy & distressed look is fake.


MY second card is for the House Mouse Challenge. Theirs is a special challenge this week as they are celebrating their first year! Congratulations to all the fab design team on your anniversary. The theme this week is called 'A year in review' and we could choose our fav challenge for the past year. Soooooo.......I just love Chrimble cards so had to go for
challenge 45 ~ Seasons. My season is of course winter.


Thanks for popping by & have a great weekend!

  10. Two gorgeous cards Kaz. Fabulous colours and papers - they both fit the HM&F season theme you chose. The images are perfectly colours and that is a great sentiment stamp on the bottom one.
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at HM&F.
