Colour Challenge #57 at the Play Date Café

The colours for this weeks challenge at The Play Date Café are Brown, Grey and Silver. I embossed the Christmas Ornament and the sentiment with silver powder, I also distressed the edges of the grey strip and the star with it.

Unfortunately the camera doesn't pick it up, the light is too bad. It has been snowing all day long, I love it.

CCCB - Week 32 - My cuppa *Whatever*

As mentioned before, I had been through a lot this week, so I decided to create another *Cuppa* for this weeks challenge at CCCB and hang this on my wall, it might help me get luckier :)

I will spare the details of all my misfortunes :(

CCCB week 32 - My Cuppa *TEA*

This is my creation for this weeks challenge at the City Crafters Challenge Blog.

I have another one up my sleeve as I had such a horrible day today, I would like to put it down on paper so I will not forget :(

I was searching for chalkpencils for quite some time now. I found some from Cretacolor for a reasonable price but I would have had to take the whole lot of 36 pencils, approx. 10 colours I wouldn't  have any use for.

Since DH didn't have a present for my upcoming Birthday yet, we decided to shop yesterday and now look what I found.

A shop where I could get any colour out of a range of 60 and really buy only the colours I like and need.

I chose 25 of my favorites and now DH is kind of sad, as there is still no present for me, (I just bet there is something up his sleeve) at least not a surprise one, because I used the new goodies right away and I am so happy now. From now on even the tiniest little images can be coloured with chalk ... yummy!

Yep, that was a great deal!

Colour Challenge #56 at the Play Date Café

When I saw the challenge I wanted to give up right there. Red, Olive and Turquoise? No way! While doing housework and creating a wreath for Christmas an idea crept into my head, this is the result:

I just hope *Mother Nature* will forgive me the freedom of inserting a button as a center kiss into my poinsettia :)

The olive BG paper is embossed with one of the Tim Holtz fades, the image is Graphics45 (What else ... aargh) the poinsettia an older Bosskut die which I also embossed with clear powder.

Thanks Julie at the Play Date Café!

Week 30 at CCCB means *THANKS*

I created a *Thank you* card with paper from Graphics45 for a dear friend saying "FOR YOU".

Is is raining dogs among other things so the light is very gloomy and I can't take a better picture, sorry!

This is my input for week 30 at the City Crafters Challenge Blog!
