Dont forget to add in your post a little bit about your celebration.
For my Scrapbook LO i decided on a winter/christmas theme. I do love Christmas. Well that should read i absolutely love the whole build up to Christmas.....
Ever since my eldest was little ( hes 20 now) as soon as we had bonfire night i would remind him that Kelvin the elf was listening for him being good. He was reporting all his good and bad things back to Santa. Well it worked a treat ;o) So i carried it on with my other 2 sons. In 2008 i found a gorgeous elf online ( he came from USA) Kelvin came to visit and he was sooo mischievous. One night he took all the tinsel off our tree.The next morning i caught him trying to hide in a big pile of the tinsel. He climbed the tree. Stayed up all night playing on the xbox360. Ate the candy canes off the tree to name but a few !!
On the LO i made a ticket that slots in behind the picture which has journelling about Kelvins antics. I added 3 snowflakes/ flowers to the top of the ticket so that it was more visable
I wanted the really cute Sammie Snowman digi image by Lexi Creations ( available here ) To look as if it was part of the backing paper,thats why i chose to use a white background for my LO. Heres a close up of the image.
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then added stickles and glossy accents. I loved this image so much. It was really easy to colour. So i just had to make a card using the same receipe.
Just for a little celebration hows this ?
To help with the celebrations don't forget the Creative Craft World special For every order placed from now until Monday 23rd August there is a 10% discount and a FREE Christmas present!

This week over at OSAAT. For challenge # 26 , its time to get out your punches and pack a punch
Here my take on this weeks challenge.
I decided to make another Christmas card this week.. With such a great image to colour i just had to. I really struggled to find a holly leaf punch the size that i needed for my idea. So i used a die from my Quickutz Squeeze. I layered the holly leaves up to make a flower, made a border at the top and bottom of my card just to add a christmassy feel. I used Glossy accents and stickles on my image and holly just to give it abit of dimention. The charm of the christmas tree was taken from y stash that i bought last year.. The backing paper was sent to me by a dear friend ( *waves at Rainmac*), it was a fabby prize from our groups swaps.
I got to use Stampin Dragon Designs , you can buy the image here 'Rupert & Penny around the Tree is such a great design for a Christmas card. I really enjoyed colouring this image and i will be using it to make all the special cards for my childrens best friends this Christmas.

Over at Incy Wincy the theme this week is, 'Its a bugs life'.
So heres my take on a bugs life. Its a rather large alota stamp that ive had in my stamp folder for over a year now. So a great challenge.... Its finally been inked up :O)
The stamp was coloured with my Promarkers and i used a variety of blue papers ( to represent water) I also added stickles and glossy accents to give it abit of a shine and shimmer that you would find with water.. Then out came the gems. ;o)
This card has been turned into a boys birthday card. Im not sure if the having a bath once a year on their birthday was an influence LOL
I would like to enter this card into Incy Wincys challenge #54

They have a beautiful challenge and have provided a yummy picture for inspiration. Oooh cakes what else would anyone need for Inspiration LOL.
The challenge is sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps.
I have been lucky enough to get a Guest Design Team role this week. I was given the fantastic Quirky Dizzy Lizzy to work with that was created by Hope Jacare Isnt she just adorable ? !!
My card was made up by backing pink cuttlebugged (Divine swirls to match the top of the cupcakes) backed with a darker green. Then gorgeous Quirky Dizzy Lizzy was coloured with my promarkers then i added stickles and glossy accents. The image was then backed with a nice bright pink. The flowers were taken from Primas 'animal bash', with stickles added on the edges and a nice bright pink card candy cherry on the top.
Ooooh anyone for cake ? Hope you stop by the blog and join the fun challenges.
For challenge number 24, its a sketch.
The prize this week is sponsored by
Sew Many Cards
For Challenge 24 i chose 'Dareama' created by Beary Dust Stamps She is absolutely gorgeous. It was such a fun image to colour !
She was made all pretty by being coloured in with my Promarkers, i of course added abit of glossy accents and stickles for added bling. I then used different sized gems to give her even more shine !
I used a plain pink 7x5 card. The backing paper was taken from a free stack by My minds Eye. The stamped sentiment was from magnolia stamps. The flowers were Prima 'Animal bash' with gems for the centre
I hope that you enjoyed my card. I cant wait to stop by your blog and see yours.
