Its time for another challenge at CCT and this week its For The Ladies. I have used the MFT Whole Herd stamp set again for my card.

The theme at CCT this week is Just Boys. I have used some of my new My Favorite Things stamps for this card. I cut the panel with a MFT wonky rectangle die and used Distress Markers for the background and to colour the images. I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and added clear Wink of Stella to the balloon. The clouds are a Paper Smooches die. As you can probably spot there is a fault on the rectangle die, there was an area of the cutting parts missing, however it doesn't look so obvious in real life and the dies are on the way back to be replaced.
I love this stamp set, the images are so cute and it was a nice quick card to make. I made it for my sons 17th birthday as he has always liked sheep and luckily he loves it.

The theme at CCT this week is a Bit of Fun. I have used some more of my new goodies for my card. The image is from the My Favorite Things stamp set The Whole Herd and the papers are also My Favorite Things, Fresh Squeezed Chevron. The mat is cut with a Lil Inkers stitched die. I stamped the cow and then masked it before stamping the other 2 and then coloured them with Copics.

I hope you all had a great New Years eve. I spent mine at work which wasn't very exciting! We have another great challenge at CCT this week which is What's New, we would like to see some of your new crafting goodies. I have to admit to buying rather a lot of new stuff over the past few weeks and I really must stop now.
I have used a Kraft card base which I used a Lil Inker die on to make the faux stitching and hand cut a tag. The dog stamp and matching die are Avery Elle and the sentiment and dragonfly are Mama Elephant. The scalloped border and flag dies are Die-Namics, the grass is a Lawn Fawn die and the papers are My Minds Eye. I added 3 gems to finish the card.

I hope you all had a good Christmas and got lots of lovely presents.
The theme at CCT this week is Anything Goes. I have used a Penny Black image on my card which I have coloured with Lyra Polycolor pencils. The embossing folder is Stampin Up and I have added a little bit of glitter.
I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope you'll be able to join in the challenges we have planned for next year. No celebrating for me this year as I'm working New Years Eve night so it will have to wait until I finish on Friday morning!

At CCT this week we would you like you to add some glitter to your card. I have used another Penny Black image coloured with Copics, on a Kraft card base. I added a couple of debossed lines on either side of the image and a Hero Arts sentiment. A very quick and easy card.
I am also entering this card into the Penny Black and More challenge which is Anything Goes With a Stamp.

This weeks theme at CCT is Traditional Colours. I have used another Go Kreate dies to make the card base and mats. The image is Penny Black which I coloured with Copics and the doiley die is Cheery Lynn.
Not the best photo I'm afraid but the weather is horrid at the moment.

The theme at CCT this week is Angels or Fairies. I have used another Hanglar image for my card which I have coloured with Distress Markers. I cut the card base with another Go Kreate die, and added some paper from a Tilda pad. The other dies are Spelllbinders and Tim Holtz and the sentiment is Hero Arts.
I really enjoyed making this card, its been a while since I used my Distress Markers. I hope you'll be able to join in this weeks challenge as we have another great prize.

This weeks theme at CCT is Light it Up. I have used one of my new Go Kreate dies and a Hanglar image, which I coloured with Lyra Polycolors. The papers are Stampin Up and the dies are Tim Holtz and Spellbinders.
Not the best photo because the light is so bad here today. I had hoped to make the card a bit more elaborate but a combination of working extra and only having 1 night off and no heating for the past 2.5 weeks has limited my card making time. The engineer is back again sometime this morning so I hope he fixes it this time!
We had a nice day on Saturday when we went to Old Trafford to watch the David Beckham Unicef match, we all really enjoyed it.

This weeks theme at CCT is animals and birds. I have made a very quick card using Tim Holtz dies. The reindeer is cut from double sided adhesive and is covered in gold glitter, it is so sparkly but it doesn't really show in the photo. The joy is cut from gold mirri card and I made the ticket shape from a rectangle of card cut with a corner punch.

This weeks theme at CCT is food and drink. I made a ticket shaped kraft card with a We R Memory Keepers punch and added some My Minds Eye papers. The image is an old Edwin stamp which I coloured with Lyra Polycolor pencils. I added some die cut pennants and a Tim Holtz scribble die cut. The tab is a Stampin Up punch which I stamped with some alphabet peg stamps which I picked up from the NEC a few years ago for £1.
