Gingerbread Christmas

Good afternoon and Merry Christmas to all of you.

Been a very quiet christmas here, just Dave and me, no fuss at all and I have adored every minutes. This morning we manage to go for a dozen of really fresh oyster in the next village and that is it....

At I Did It Creations Challenge, we have a new challenge. It's challenge 87 and it's a Gingerbread Christmas. I have been able to choose a image from Robyn's store.

I have used a brown card and put some paper I bought at the NEC and some glitter paper I had in my craft box since ages... I have cut my Gingerbread may with my Spellbinders Label 21, and add some candies. I have coloured it with my Spectrum noir and with Sakura pens. And as am French, I have add a French sentiment....Lol!!!!

It's your turn to show us your creation, and you can get a chance to win 1 image from Robyn's store, even 2 images if you use an image from Robyn's store on your card. So , good luck and if you're poping in here, do not hesitate and leave me a comment, they are well appreciated.

I will enter my card in the following challenges:
The Poodles Parlour : Song Title (I have been inspired by "Sweet Gingerbread Man" from Susan Vaughan)
Crafty Purple Frog Challenge : Christmas Theme

Thank you !

Good afternoon from a very sunny France. A bit chilly, but dry and sunny. It's sunday again and time for a new challenge at I Did It Creations.

It's probably one of the best time of the year to thanks people, so that is what we wish to see this week: A "Thank You" card, challenge 86.
We have treated like queens again, and got a choice of stunning images from Stichy Bear. I have been lucky and was allowed to use a set of digi. I have used "Twilight" set and I have totally felt in love with it.

I have used 2 of the bookmarks in my creation. The first one as a "normal" image on the top of my card. I have coloured it with my Spectrum Noir and add the "thank you" sentiment on it.

The second one, also coloured with my Spectrum Noir, will be used as a "real" bookmark. i have coloured the "Twilight" with my Sakura Pens to give it a bit of glitter. The "pattern" of the card is one I have been shown by my friend Ellen at Crafters Companion on the "Live Crafting" evening.

I have a couple of friends who helped me with doing mathilde's bedroom, so the card is for them. And one of them reads a lot, so I know she will use the bookmark with pleasure.

For once again, I will enter my card in a few challenges.
First of all, I will enter it in : One Stitch at a Time : everything goes. It is the challenge blog of Stichy Bear....
I will also enter it in :
delightful sketches : Anything goes
the poodles parlour : Thank you

Hope you all have a nice sunday, and if you're poping in, do not hesitate to leave a comment. They are always welcome.

It begins to look......

Morning to all from a very grey day here in France today. What a change compare to yesterday when it was so sunny....

It's time for challenge n° 85 at I Did It Creation. We have received a funny digi from Gingerloft to play with. Poor him.....He seems to be in pain....Lol!!!!

"Toobig", it's its name has been coloured with my Spectrum Noir, as well as the cheminey and for the snow, beard and hat, I have used some glitter glue I have since ages. I have used my new Spellbinders, I bought at the NEC to make the card. And to finish it I had a sentiment and a little "topper" I bought a few days ago here in France.

We are out now to go to a wine tasting, it might finish to cure my bronchitus and warm us a bit....Lol!!!!

Have a nice sunday, whatever you're doing, and don't forget.....Comments are well appreciated...!!!!

Rudolph came to town

Hello to all of you,

How lucky we are to be a DT for I Did It Creations, we received a stunning image to play with.

Here is the card I made with:

I have coloured my "Rudolph" with my Spectrum Noir, and add some glitter with my Sakura pens. I than cut it with my Spellbinders and put it on a piece of green mirri-board card. The ribbon, I brought it back from our Xmas holidays last year in Spain. We had them on our table cloth on Xmas diner, and I couldn't resist them....Lol!!!!

This little cutty "Rudolph" and the other image you will find on the other Dt's blog can all be find at The Robyn's Fetish Shop with a lot of others stunning images. So do not hesitate and "jump" on her site to find new products to play with. And am sure you will also get a few that you can enter in our weekly challenges at I Did It Creations.

Am off to work now. Hope you will all have a gorgeous day.

Afternoon to all of you,

First of all, I would like to apologise. I am "proper poorly" and have forgotten, to post my card.....Hope you will all forgive me.

Anyway, here you are:
It is my first card as the new DT for I Did It Creations

Today it's the challenge 84 "Flowers", and I am so proud to have been able to use an image from Floppy Latte Designs. it is nice to use some flowers on that time of the year when everything is dead outside. The flower I have chosen, looks more a medallion and that's why I have decided to go for it.

I have coloured the flower with my "Sakura Pens", and have just used a bit of green from my Spectrum Noir. When I was at the NEC in November, I bought some candies and some ribbon.....And I couldn't resist using them.....(Lol).  I have made an easel card and leave the flower to talk by itself.

I can't wait to see all the creation you will show us on I Did It Creations challenge blog.

Have a nice day, and don't hesitate and leave a message when you "drop" in....
