This week over at Everybody Art Challenge its a Happy New Year and because its Christmas the challenge will last for two weeks. To make my card I have used a sexy digital stamp from Sassy Studio Designs called Martini. The papers are from My Minds Eye Signature Christmas. I have used copics to colour the image. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Thanks for looking Jenny

This is my creation for this weeks challenge over at Everybody Art Challenge. My friend's baby is being Christened just after Christmas so I thought I would make something now to have a break from Christmas cards. This is a digital image from Digitalpenciltoo. It's called Michael but I've turned it into a little girl! I've used stickle glue on the wings and halo. I used Ranger ink to change the colour of the flower, added a charm and hair pin with beads. The paper is Papermania Regency A5 paper. I hope you like the card and thanks for looking. Jenny

This is my contribution to this weeks challenge over at Everybody Art Challenge, the theme being stitching real or faux. I am also going to enter it into the Stamp Something Challenge. Boy was this a challenge for me. I have an aversion to sewing machines and a needle and thread. I think it stems from my school days when I took a whole term to make a top only to find one side was smaller than the other and hours of work had to be unpicked. I never did finish it!
To ensure there were no tears I pricked holes in the paper measuring the gaps with a ruler and then hand sewed using the holes as a guide. I can't sew straight even with a straight line but never mind I think it gives the card a rustic look! That's what I think and I'm sticking to it.Other items used: Paper/Card - Bazzill - Great Lakes, Paper Salon - Enamored Heart Filagree K&Co - Amy Butler Lotus Faded China ANW Crestwood - Ivory Floral on white matt Embellishments - Black gems, button, black ribbon, white lace, blue sequins Image - Stamps Happen - Paris Socialite Medium - Ranger Distress Ink - faded Jeans Copics - B02, B12, B93, C5, C7 Thanks for looking.

I have added stickles glue for the bling and a black gem for the ring.
I've added a couple of charm brads although not easy to see. The first is a cosmetic bag, the second a made with love envelope. The flower is a midnight blue rose bought from ebay (Mulberry Crafts UK), I think there were 50 in the bag for about £2.50. Below that is a blue prima flower - Painterly Petals Morning Silk To finish it off I coloured a cherry blossom flower and added a couple of rose buds. and finally a circle of navy paper roughly cut.
