1 card 2 challenges

A very good Thursday morning to all my friends, would you believe it "No Rain" I am wonder, washing in, washing out?????, but onto more important matters I have made this card to fit 2 challenges again (am I getting good or what??) LOL. The 1st challenge is the sketch from Pollycraft which also asked for food in the sketch, and what better for a Xmas card than milk, cookies and sweets.....the 2nd challenge is for Winterwonderland where the subject was "Santa Claus is coming to Town". I just love making xmas cards and with these challenges I am away ahead off myself this year...only thing is I have birthday cards still to make for my grand-daughter and my friend, I will have to get down to that they are on Wednesday...Hope you like my card my friends. I am off to my shed as I am struggling with my challenge for Tuesday Taggers..I am trying to use different techniques for stamping....I have only ever used chalks for backing onto card and I am getting in a fair mess with "Perfect Pearls" I may or may not succeed, watch this space....LOL. Have a great day everyone and I will be back to catch up on you all later on today..Love as always Avril xx

fantastic card,
Thank you so much for the lovely comment on my poncho, if you get fed up with the squares or have some you dont want, this charity will use them,
dont feel that you have to, hugs

Lilacanglia said...

Hiya again,
I am doing the three poncho's as a order for the lady that runs that charity, they are for her personally, not for the charity, even tho i do crochet and knit for the charity as well.
Most of my hand made items I sell and a portion of the money I make, I give to local charitys like rspca and such like,

In answer to your question, yes you should go to skeggie as theres a great big market in Ingoldmells and a craft in Skegness itself theres a fab big craft shop right on the main street(remember to take plenty of Pennies LOL)
