Gifts, Bows, and Ribbons for the CCC!

 Hello from a very sunny Inverness, gorgeous day here, albeit, 0 degrees first thing in the morning Brrrr, anyhoo, it's warmed up a bit, and the air feels crisp and clean.

Once again it's time for the CCC girls to show their latest creations and Zoe this time chose the theme, Gifts, Bows and Ribbons, or Anything goes if you can't manage that.

I managed 4 this time;

I would like to enter this card into: https://scrapsoflifebyscrappymo.blogspot.com/2020/09/september-rudolph-days-challenge.html

Image and sentiment from Enchanted Christmas by Docrafts, from a loooong time ago. The background paper is from  Docrafts too, but I can't remember which range. Coloured with Altenew watercolours, DI and glitter.


 Another image from Enchanted Christmas, this lovely fairy is coloured with Altenew watercolours, lots of glitter and gems. The set also had beautiful velum and this is one of them I've used in the background.

I would like to enter this card into;https://www.welovechocolatebaroque.uk/2020/09/september-wings-with-anything-goes.html



Yet again from Enchanted Christmas, and Santa is coloured with Black Widow  pencils and Gel pens. I've used more of the lovely coloured velum and DI. 

I've shown the inside as I'm going to enter that into;http://www.didosdesigns.com/2020/09/inside-out.html



Last card


This is an old stamp from Docrafts, I bought way back in the day when I first started making cards, and I use it every year, Altenew watercolours again and lots of glitter, paper is another one from Docrafts.

So, that's me for now, thank you for the lovely comments on my last post, appreciated as ever.

Keep safe and see you soon,

Stunning set of cards Kate all so beautifully coloured, love your insert too. I've sat out in the sun all day reading, it's been gorgeous. Then the house cast a shadow and temperature dropped so we came in, but so enjoyed the sun.

Linby said...

I just "re-discovered" some of these stamps myself, but they've not seen ink yet. I found them a little fussy to begin to colour but looking at your wonderful cards I think I need to get them out and use them. Thanks for inspiration and for sharing with us at We Love Chocolate Baroque Challenge.

Hi Kate, thanks for the lovely comment re my garden, yes I spend a lot of my time there and love every minute of it. Yes, Monte does go for 'dip' in the pool but only if we encourage him, it's pretty deep and he likes to feel ground under his paws. He tends to jump in and out of his little pool. xxxx

Jennifer Johnston said...

Wow! you have been a busy bee Kate. Stunning cards, great designs and fabulous colouring as always. I hesitate to try and choose a favourite as I love them all but....... I think it would have to be the sleigh card. Stay safe and well lovely lady and thanks for your lovely comment on my recent blog post.
Love & Hugs Jennifer xx.
