What's in the box??

Our new challenge at High Hopes this week is to make
A Gift Card Holder 
or Gift Box
If you've been over to their blog recently you'll see that Aaemie had a fab tutorial last week on how to make a treat box, and it's easy peasy (trust me, if I can make one, anyone can LOL!)
My box is slightly bigger, and I didn't have a piece of card big enough to make a flip lid like Aaemie's, so I just made a regular box.

My box uses Christmas Treat from High Hopes - coloured with copics and some fluffy stuff added as fur.  Marianne Design snowflake and poinsettia dies, Memory Box border.

And inside my box ....?

A set of cards as a pressie for my doggy-lovin friend.
BTW, the card at the top is another High Hopes stamp - Heidi and Mattie

Other challenges:
Layout inspired by Dawny's sketch at Simon Says Stamp
The Pink Elephant TPE176 - pretty packaging
Christmas Stampin' all Year Long CSAYL#37 - To Die for
Polka doodles #47 - any die will do
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challlenge #100 - for someone special
Lexi's Creations #79 - Christmas

Lil' Baby Card

Ohhhh brrr it's such a cold evening, the wind's straight from the North Pole!  Winter is most definitely on its way!  Even Ruby put an inch to her step on our walk this evening!

I'm needing to get a move on with my cards for a Chrissy pressie. I had planned to go much more 'pastel' with my wee Ellie, but about 3 different markers decided to run out while colouring this card, so darker it had to go!  Grrr.

Hi and welcome to my new blog!  If you've popped over from my old blog I'd love it if you signed up to be a follower, its horrible starting from scratch again!
It's gonna take me a while getting all my links over from my old blog, but sure there's no rush!

My mojo's been playing hide-and-seek again, but I have to plough on with my Chrissy cards regardless!

This wee cutie is Chrissy from All That Scraps - coloured with copics and a bit of sparkle added to her boots and bows.
Marianne holly dies coloured to match, and some pink bling to pull it all together.
I'd been concentrating so hard on the colour combo from The Play Date Cafe, but then I started using some old scraps of DP up and some blue slipped in, so I hope it's still OK!

Sketch from MFT Wednesday Sketch Club MFTWSC99
All that Scraps - anything goes
Colour theme of Rose...Eucalyptus...Slate from the Play Date Cafe #158
The Squirrel and the Fox #31 - anything goes
Crafty Cardmakers #79 - more than one punch or die
MarkerPop #11 - colour skin (I used E00, E02 and )
Creative Card Crew #24 - anything goes
Divas by Design #62 - use 2 or more patterened DP
