Pixie Cottage Challenge #101 and or For Someone Special

I am sorry that I haven't been around here very much this month!  I have been over whelmed at work and have felt really under the weather.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I so appreciate all of your comments!
I am finally getting my energy back and hope to be around to everyone's blog soon!
For my Pixie Cottage project for this challenge, I created a birthday journal for my son's girlfriends birthday!
My cardstocks are from Canvas Corp.  I used the pixie cottage exclusive stamp Window Seat by ARTish.
As well as one of my cute little Tilda stamps.  My images were stamped in Momento ink and colored and shaded with copics.   My sentiment is from one of my birthday SU sets and the tag was die cut from a sizzex Tim Holtz set..
It's Wednesday so it means another challenge here at The Pixie Cottage!
As always we have 2 parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with.
We have a fabulous sketch and our theme this week is "Someone Special"
This one will run for 2 weeks so the team can have a little break over Christmas.
But be sure to come back on Friday for our blog hop winners announcement!


Remember you can use the sketch or the optional technique or both!
The randomly picked winner will win two stamps of their choice from the Pixie Cottage Collection. The winner will be announced on the Friday after the challenge ends.

Creative Card Crew Christmas Lights

This season has been rough so far, I have been over whelmed at work and under the weather with my health, both at the same time.   I think that I am finally getting the health part back on track though!  Hopefully work will get back on track after the holidays! 
For my card for this challenge, I used a cute digital from our sponsor Robyn's Fetish. My image was printed out of my hp printer, then colored and shaded with copics. My card stock is from SU.  My ribbon is from Micheals.  (I bought quite a lot of ribbon this year, what a deal at 80% off!  Just gotta love those coupons!)

Now on to the challenge from this last challenge of the year!

This challenge our sponsor is the awesome Robyn's Fetish. Not only do they have beautiful digi stamps, they also have digi paper. If you have not tried digi paper before, it is really easy to use and Robyn's Fetish has some really pretty ones. They provided the team some of their images, as well as the paper pack Ye old Christmas paper. Rebekah, Margaret and Mari used it, so be on the look out for how beautiful the paper is.

Our Challenge for this fortnight is Christmas Lights! We want to lights of the season.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my Blog and leave me a comment!  It is so appreciated!

Tis The Season The Creative Card Crew!

Welcome back friends to another fun challenge here with the Crew. Card Crew!  For my design card for this challenge,  I used my favorite Santa Stamp.  Santa was stamped in momento ink and colored and high lighted with my copic markers.  My ribbons were from my stash.  Card stocks are by DCWV.  I used my sizzex to emboss my brick background.  I love the idea of non traditional colors for my Christmas cards.

Midnight Madness Sketches 133 &134

For my first Midnight Madness Card I used Priscilla's adorable digital!  My cardstock was from SU.  My image was colored and shaded with copics.  I had this cute little resin snowman and couldn't resist adding him to the front!  Snowmen are such a huge part of the Christmas Season!

For my next Midnight Madness Card I used a cute little paper piecing from Agnes Moorehead.  My cardstocks are from DCWV.  Ribbon was from Micheals.  My background was embossed with my cuttlebug.  Stickles was added for bling!

“Digistamps 4 Joy was born in July 2010. What began as a “brainwave” developed into a rather successful journey…  Started by Mel M, and with the help of talented artists and fellow South Africans JenLee, Margy, Sam, Laura and Mel herself, Digistamps 4 Joy was soon reaching an international audience.  Digistamps was a rather unheard of and new craft to many South Africans with most only having access to them if they had a credit card.  Mel and Jen started brainstorming and soon came up with the idea of starting an online store entirely accessible to all South Africans.  Mel having the experience in web and graphic design, and Jen being a wonderful illustrator work together as a team and produce most of the images many people around the world have come to know and love.  Among the many images, you’re sure to find something you like… from fun and whimsical to cute and funny right through to serious and beautiful. Every month a new freebie is available on the website.
The winner will get her choice of 6 images from the store
