Just dropping in with a quick post and entering a few challenges new to me, well not actually new to me but I’ve never entered either before.

Tic Tac To is one of the challenges that I have wanted to enter for such a long time but by the time I get myself together, it’s either over or just like playing the lotto I’m one number short !!!! well, you know what I mean. Today I finally managed to get all three components required to play along.

I’m playing along with the centre line, layers, arctic animal and colouring. Does it matter that my arctic animal is blue? (could be from the cold) This cute bear is by Tim Holz for Sizzix lots of lovely fiddly, tiny pieces to get lost on my desk. My arctic bear was coloured with Distress Oxides in Aged Patina and Picked Rasberry spritzed with water. I decided he needed some fancy gloves and a scarf to give extra layers and of course a little glam I used some glitter card for those. The embossing folder is also courtesy of Mr Holtz coloured with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide and embossed with Wow bonding powder and then sprinkled some chunky glitter on top. The bonding powder really helps the glitter to stick and stay put. I added some white Nuvo drops to give the impression of snow and there you have it!

Here is the same bear but just a tad of colouring on his scarf and funky Tree, die again by Mr Holtz for Sizzix.

I’m also entering into Simon Says Stamp “Add Some Sparkle” challenge first time playing along here I’ve always been intimidated by this challenge but why not it’s Christmas and I’m feeling adventurous!

Do pop over to Tic Tac To and Simon Says Stamp as they have amazing cards to inspire in their galleries and the DT’s have pulled out all of the stops.

Wishing those who celebrate a fabulous Christmas and Look forward to seeing you all in the new year.

Take care

  1. I lovebothversions of this card, but I have to say the top one is my favourite, as it looks like the bear is popping it’s head out to say hello.!
    Love your use of distress oxides, you make things seem so easy, but even with the same equipment as you I can’t come near. You’re so talented xx

  2. AWESOME cards. You really nailed the challenge. You have amazing talent and your cards are so sweet. I would just LOVE to have you come play along at Word Art Wednesday. It’s always Anything Goes/Family Friendly and there are lots of great prizes. I hope you’ll come play along.

  4. Oh my goodness, I’m so happy you decided play along at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week! Both cards are a delight but I have to say the first one with the blue bear and pink pine tree limbs is my favorite! Thanks for joining us!
