Another post from me... 2 in a month things are looking up

 I have enjoyed taking part in WOYWW so much I thought I would share some of the things I have been doing lately and enter a few challenges so here goes

 This card is for my nephews birthday, the stamp is one of Mo Manning's and I thought ti was just right for a teenage boy who loves his X Box. The card is folded back on itself and the topper is mounted onto to some embossed card. I have used some card candi to match the buttons on the X Box control to finish it off.
I want to enter this one into the following challenges:
DP2 Your favourite card of the year using one of Mo's images.
I heart Promarkers where they want more than one fold
Without Words for our nearest and dearest
OSAAT where anything goes

 This is a box my Mum requested for her friends grandson, I made this using the new Sweet Treats Board from Crafters Companion. I do like these board and can see me using them a lot I made one for my Mother In Law as well but didn't get a picture of it before I gave it away. I used some Kraft Card, decorated with some die cuts, snowflakes, reindeer and a sleigh which I joined together with some ribbon and a name plate made using my fab gold labels 4.
I would like to enter this into these challenges:
Crafters Companion Use Ribbon
Top Tip Tuesday Snowflakes
Crafting for all Seasons Christmas but not a card

 This is a card I made for a swap with a lovely lady on a forum I take art in, the stamp was a freebie from a magazine, I coloured the images with Pro Markers, used some dies to create the shapes, the paper were another freebie but so very nice, I used my new bow die for the little bow and an older word die for the sentiment.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Sunday Sketch and Stash use any sketch
Passion 4 Pro Markers Use a Sentiment
My Time to craft Christmas birds

This is the card I made for my Mum and Dad this yea, I remember my Mum telling stories about her having red hair when she was younger so this one seemed the right one for them. The decoupage was die cut so easy to do. I used a frame die to mount it on and inked the edges with some distress inks. I used some of the fab ribbon I got at the NEC this year. I used my eBosser to emboss some gold card for the background using the folder that comes with it. I am entering this card for the following challenges:

 This one is just to show you, I made it for my Mum's friend I bought a whole set of stamps for that little horse!! As soon as I saw him I could see this card in my head so I had to have him. The tree and the fence are die cuts, inked up and glittered. he snow effect is just some ripped paper and glitter.
If you have got to here well done you I know it's a picture heavy post, again this one is just to share, I made this one for my in laws wedding anniversary using the Tattered Lace Couple Die, I really like this card. Thank you for popping by and if you are kind enough to leave a comment is would be most appreciated.
I am hoping to post more regularly next year and will try to not have them soooo long then. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2014.
