Craft Your Passion Last DT card

This is my last card for Craft Your Passion as a GDT. The challenge today is to use red, green & cream & yes as you can see I didn't do that!!!! As I knew I would be away over Xmas, I made up my cards ahead of time & completely forgot to abide by the challenge deets. Duuuhhhhh. I just did not havve time to redo it, so apologies Lauretta. The image is by Coco Dingo over at Craft Your Passion & he is coloured with Prisma pencils. BP, flowers, rik rak, all from stash.
This post is scheduled as by the time you read this, I will be in Cyprus at my other house, looking forward to celebrating New Year.

Flu Shot

Well this weekend I should have been going to a big family get together & having loads of people staying at my house, BUT because of the blooming snow, it was called off as noone could get anywhere. Such a shame, no presents posted because we all thought we would swop in person & now noone gets them as its too late to post them & even if it wasn't , the post would not get there now, once more because of the snow!!!!
Anyway Stitchy over at OSAAT gave all us DT members a Christmas present & allowed us to go shopping in the store. One of the stamps I chose was this one called Flu Shot, it just appealed to me. It can be bought here. Coloured with Prismas. BPs from stash as is the lace. The sentiment I found on the internet. Flowers from stash.

Flipping Men

Over at the Imag-e-nation store they have these Flipping men stamps reduced from £9.99 to £1.00, yes only £1.00, so of course I had to get several sets as they are perfect for mens cards.
BP from an old Cd I bought from E Bay years ago with male background papers on it.
Created a criss cross with my Crop O Dile & some twine from stash. All other elements are from the stamp set & stamped with Tim Holtz   Walnut Stain ink & coloured with Prismas.

This week it is to follow a sketch. Details of which can be found over at Craft Your Passion blog.
I have used one of Laurettas images, coloured with Prismas. Nellie Snellen die used with mirri card from stash. You can't see it very well in the photo but I have added glitter to the top of the candle & the flame. Martha Stewart Lattice punch used to make the lacy effect.

OSAAT challenge 43 Surprise Surprise

Over at OSAAT this week, we have another challenge and as this is Xmas, yes it is, honest, this one runs until 9th January 2011. It is sponsored by One Stop Cards, who are giving away a $10 voucher to spend.
I have used an image by Beary Dust called Precious Pup, which can be bought here.
It doesn't need colouring in my opinion, so mounted it onto black pearlescent card & then white card. BP from stash as our the puppy paws. Flower & Feather  are also from stash.
Go on over to OSAAT & see what my fellow teamies have done & leave some lovely comments for them.

Everything else on the card was old stash & I mean The BP was from a CD of mens bits I bought from E Bay years ago. The lamp, animals, binoculars are from a HOTP Mens book, again which I have had for years.Sentiment from an old QVC kit bought, yes you have guessed it, years ago.
