Christmas Card 3

I have a couple of Christmas cards to share that started when I took a watercolour pad on my recent overseas trip. It was the last thing that I jammed into my suitcase - a pad, waterbrush, an ink pad, a set of cling stamps and some Zig Clean Color brushes. I knew I would have time to do some stamping during my trip. We stayed at my Aunty and Uncle's house in Kota Kinabalu and they look after a 3 year old during the day. On a day I decided to do some stamping, little Serge wanted to help and we ended up stamping together!! Everyday he came over, the first thing he wanted to do was to stamp! He loved it! Here is a card I managed to make whilst I was overseas. I'm adding this to the Hero Arts November challenge and the A Blog Named Hero's Holiday Challenge. Thanks for dropping by!

Christmas Card 2

This is another version of this Christmas card I made on the Hero Arts Flickr group 90 minute scramble on the weekend. Both cards were made within the 90 minute timeslot as they were so quick to made. I used glitter tapes to make these glittery trees with an embossed sentiment. Which do you prefer? I'm also adding this card to Virginia View's Challenge - Stripes and Plaids, A Blog Named Hero's Holiday challenge and the Hero Arts Holiday challenge. Thanks for dropping by!

Christmas Card 1

I had some fun participating in the Hero Arts Flickr group 90 minute challenge today. I have not participated for quite a while as the times are usually not suitable for us Aussies Downunder. Linda W hosted a 24hour challenge this weekend and I was able to join in. The time limit is still the same but you can do it anytime within the 24 hours. Her challenge today was to make a Holiday card with a tree or two in it. During the month leading up to Christmas, I tend to mass produce cards and I try to do flat cards for postage with minimal stamping. I used strips of coloured papers to create a patterned paper for the trees. I'm also adding this card to Virginia's View Challenge #25 Stripes and Plaids and Hero Arts Holiday Cardmaking Challenge. Thanks for dropping by!
