Gift card for my Nephew

I had to make something to put my Nephew’s Christmas pressie in. I got him a gift certificate from amazon (9 year old boys are a bit of a pain to buy for, especially when they live so far away) I decided a card with a pocket inside would work so I took the sketch from Creative Inspirations and the Indigo Blue from ABC Challenge and made my card. The Challenges from Cute Card Thursday and C.R.A.F.T challenge also fit this one quite well. Here it is

Christmas Stitched snowman

This is the first time I have done something like this on a card, we all did one at our craft group last night and it was great fun. I remember my Dad used to make pictures like this with nails and thread, some of them were awesome. There were a couple of challenges that called for Christmas cards namely Charisma Cards,  and Papertake Weekly Challenges, so here is my card.

Adorable Kai

I adore this little cutie from Mo’s Digital Pencil, he is just THE cutest little baby ever (well maybe mine were cuter as babies, but every Mum says that) I had to do something with him so I took the sketch from Charisma Cardz Blog, and added the challenge from Three Clovers Designs who called for a Christmas card with no red or green and here he is

Forever friends with BLING

Glitter is not normally my thing, I tend to get it everywhere and I mean EVERYwhere, I even have one of them little tidy tray things but it just seems to gravitate out of it. I am really suprised we didnt have sparkly risoto for tea lol (maybe thats why my kids make such a mess when using the stuff)

I have been itching to use the free stamp from this months do crafts magazine, I just needed a card to put it, I took the sketch from Papertake weekly challenge, added the Forever friends challenge of Glitter, the Kaboodle Doodles challenge of Buttons, Bows and bling and topped it all off with using a die cut which came from Little Paper Shop blog and came up with this little beauty:
