DT post for Seems a little Sketchy - sketch 27 and GDT for Here come the boys

Good Morning! Well its the start of another week and I'm hoping you've all had a good weekend - despite the awful weather that many have experienced! We had fun - the Christmas fair at school managed to raise a total of £538 for PTA funds so that's just fabulous! Only one more event to go now before Christmas - and that's a Christmas Craft evening - looking forward to that but still have to sort things out for it!!!!

Onto today - I've got that rare occasion when I should be doing two separate posts - but I thought I would combine them into one - I hope that's okay!

My first card is  a DT card for the new challenge starting over at seemsalittlesketchy today - here's the sketch:

 We're sponsored by My mygrafico and were supplied with an assortment of images relating to Christmas.

Christmas Stamps

This is what I did:

Its very much a kiddies card - but I think the images are pretty cute don't you? I coloured them with promarkers in good old traditional colours and used old papers from my stash and some red and green embellishmments also from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

addicted-to-stamps-challenge: Christmastime
glitternsparklechallengeblog: Ribbon and/or lace
Osaatonestitchatatimechallenge: Fabric, ribbon or lace
emergencycrafterschallenge: Anything goes

My next card is a GDT card for herecometheboys where the challenge starting this fortnight is called - Birthdays Only - Here's what I came up with - this one is for my uncle Ivan:

The image is, of course, Bugaboo - as is the sentiment! Its coloured with promarkers and mounted on chevron paper with kraft layers.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

joannasheenchallenge Anything goes but not Christmas
fabnfunkychallenges: Birthdays and 3 (3 buttons)
PIOpileitonchallenge: anything but a Christmas card

I haven't forgotten my award Pauline - just struggling to get things done at the moment - I will hopefully get organised for sorting that out sometime this week!

Thanks for dropping by - and I hope you have a fabulous day!

Love and hugs
