>>> 365 Cards Challenges <<<

Before I left for my summer hols, I was a frequent visit to this card challenge site as it was held everyday. Upon coming back, I just couldnt' get into the mood of crafting (well, partly had to sort my craft room out). But I'm back and will try and keep up with the challenges everyday!

Did a few Xmassy cards last nite for this past week challenges and here they are:

Day 230: Shape It Up
The challenge asks for a semi-circle on the card. Here's mine:

I used a doily for mine and sprayed it with glimmer mist. Not sure why I chose mittens as I thought it was mittens that was hung up but realised it's stockings!!! Duh! Oh well, if you don't have stocking, you will use anything! LOL!

Day 229: Colour Scheme
The challenge is to follow this particular colour scheme:

Here's mine. I sctually did two similar ones.

Not trying to be enthusiatic but as it was an 8x8 paper, I merely half each and used them both on two cards. Save me fluffing about later. I outlined the Xmas trees and stars. Stamped a Unity bauble image and coloured using Promarkers and Copics. Sticklers was later applied. Added a wire and stuck the bauble using foam dots.

Day 228: Same, but Different
The challenge is to use at least 2 papers that have the same pattern but are different in colour. Here's mine:

I was lucky that within the same Xmassy pad, there were these swirly patterns in different colours! Yay! Hot cocoa image from Imaginisce (couldn't resist them when I saw it) and circle image by Unity. Finally got down to learning how to emboss using my Cuttlebug & Nestabilities. (It's amazing how people are willing to show how it's done freely on the Net... thanks!)

Day 225: Super Sketchy Sunday
This was the sketch:
Here's my take on it:

Polar bear image from Imaginisce... isn't he adorable?!! Coloured using Copics. Sentiments from Unity. Paper from Dovecraft 6x6 Xmas pad (normally don't buy them but as I've got a fair number of cards to do, it's much easier pulling them from a pad!)

That's it so far! Will try and complete the rest of the challenges tonite. Now that I've gotten the card making bug again, I'm really enjoying it. TTFN!
