My Time Made Easy - Pretty Palette

I hope everyone had a brilliant Christmas.  I have not had time to make a card for this weeks challenge but thought I would post the colour combo in case anyone wanted to have a go.  We had family from England visiting so I didn't have time to craft.

My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette Challenge

Christmas is coming!!!!  I am not sure who is more excited myself or our daughter.  She is at that lovely age where she can now understand what is going on.  I have done all my Christmas shopping for her now, but I think Father Christmas is just a bit confused as to what she would like.  Every TV advert is "WOW, I want that for Christmas."  I just have my husband to sort now but as always buying for men is so difficult.

Anyway enough chat lets get down to some colour fun at My Time Made Easy

Here is the colour palette:

and here is my card:

I have used the  Beautiful Baubles set along with Homemade Holiday Labels to frame the sentiment which I have then inked the edges.  The papers are called Candy Claus and the snowflake paper is a freebie which can be found HERE.  All the papers and digi stamps are all available in the My Time Made Easy Store.

My base card is kraft and I have used some corrugated card for texture and added some pink glitter to it.  The little jungle bell came from one of those rather nice chocolate reindeers from Lindt and I have added some more glitter to my sentiment along with some gems.

The Ribbon Reel - Nordic Noel

More Christmas!!!  This time the challenge is at The Ribbon Reel and along with the gorgeous photo below you had to use red, white, kraft, button, ribbon and twine.

I have used again the lovely Pink Petticoat for the backing papers.  The Christmas tree is a die that a crafting friend of mine had, so I had a little play.

I have used some kraft paper as a background to the tree die and have added some buttons with twine and ribbon for decoration.
The sentiment is also again from My Time Made Easy called beautiful baubles and I have change some of the letters to red using GIMP to match my card.
This called is also from the Challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges - merry christmas

The Shabby Tea Room - Shabby Chic

Time for some Christmas Challenge fun!!!

At The Shabby Tea Room this week the challenge is to create a card or project inspired by the photo below and to use the colours pink, aqua, silver and add some glitter.

This photo is just so dreamy, I love it.

So here is my card:

I have used papers from Pink Petticoat and the background paper with the script is double printed using a snowflake paper.  I found the idea in a recent blog post on Pink Petticoat's Facebook page and here is the link to the crafters website, hope she doesn't mind jules-always with a heart

I have then used digi images and sentiment from My Time Made Easy called beautiful baubles which I have then coloured using GIMP and added some glitter and ribbon.

I have mat and layered parts of the card onto silver glitter card and added some silver gems to finish.

The layout for the card is from the sketch challenge over at Mojo Monday

Well I have been baking again.  I was asked by the school to make some cupcakes for the Christmas fair, so I had a little practice today.  Hope the children will like them.

I have used marshmallows for the snowman's face, with chocolate chips. for the eye and piping icing for the mouth and nose.  I have then added a sugar lace for the scarf.

The cupcakes themselves are just a basic vanilla sponge and I have added some chocolate chips.

I will show them to my daughter when she arrives home from school, I think she will like the look of them but she is really funny when it comes to mum's cupcakes, she would rather eat a shop bought one, lol!!!
