Week 151 Merry Christmas Everyone!

Christmas is almost upon us and we would like to wish everyone a 
Happy Christmas 
and a 
Peaceful New Year.

Our challenge this time will last for two weeks and for it you may choose any of our previous challenges as your theme, but please tell us which one you are basing your work on. We're sure you must have a  favourite.
There is a list of our previous challenges on the page at the top of the blog.


My first card takes us right back to challenge number 1 with the colour theme black, white and pink.
I have used a fabulous stencil from Simon Says Stamp and opalescent embossing paste on the black card.  It's simply finished off with a Waltzing Mouse sentiment.

My second card uses the sketch from week 139 and again more embossing paste and another simon says stamp stencil.  The sentiment is cut from some embossed card and is also from Simon Says Stamp.

My first card is from Week 140, a White on White Christmas card.
Here I have simply used a Penny Black holly die teamed with a Stampin' Up sentiment from the Petite Pairs set.

This card takes its theme from Week 147. The wreath is die-cut from Memory Box dies. The sentiment is from Penny Black and the cardinal was made using the Stampin' Up bird punch, using a second 'wing' to create his crest. He was coloured using Distress inks and markers.
Week 107 here... Up in the air!
A seagull cut using my Silhouette teamed with a Paper Smooches sentiment.

Feel free to enter as many times as you wish, but please let us know which challenge you are repeating!
We would like to thank everyone who has entered any or all of our challenges and wish you all a fabulous Christmas.
