Merry Monday Christmas Challege - stockings

Hi there, my goodness the  storm really raged didn't it?!  I hope there was not much damage where you were.  We just had to pop a few fence panels back in.

The Merry Monday Christmas Challenge this week is 'Stockings', and here is my card, helped by this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch.

As you can see I changed the image and sentiment placing around. I do hope you get to play along with these challenges. Thanks for dropping by. Lynn x

Butterfly Challenge 72 - paper piercing and fern

Hello there, quick post for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge as there are only hours left, eek!  I made this card for the challenge, even putting on some dried Maidenshair Fern, and then realised there was no paper piercing.  As I don't easily give up, I focused on the inside of the card for the paper piercing - saved the challenge!

Got to go!

Merry Monday 235 - Snowmen

Hi there, hasn't it been a glorious day?  A touch of Spring in the air today - much appreciated.  I have my card for the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  My snowman comes from a Sheena Douglas range of stamps.  I have used a touch of fluffy stuff and sparkle.  The embossing is copper.  I'm not sure about the sky now I have sponged, but it's there to stay!

I will link up now, and say hello to a few challengers.  Thanks for looking.

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge - Clean and Simple

Hi there,

 I managed to ink up a stamp set which I did not get around to doing at Christmas, and I thought it was just the stamp for the clean and simple challenge at Merry Monday.

Thanks for looking, and I do hope you join in with the challenge.

Butterfly Challenge 71 - Underneath and/or umber

Hello there, I do hope your weekend went well.  I am entering my card into Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge - I opted for 'underneath' - here it is:

I found inspiration from my pinterest board here

I have used a Stamp Addicts stamp from the 'happy lady' collection and as you can see I sponged the butterfly first and added the sillhouette on top, so my buttefly is underneath 😃 - clever, eh?! I must go and link up - not long left before the new challenge.
