Hi and welcome! I am in the middle of a couple of weeks off work and also in the middle of a DT break, so thought I would make a card for a couple of challenges. This is the first time I've entered any challenges since losing my son 18 months ago. Card-making became a chore not an enjoyment and I only stuck at it because I was on a couple of design teams and didn't want to let anyone down. I also knew that if I stopped stamping I probably wouldn't ever start again and I want that joy to come back.

Matthew loves sloths so I have bought several sloth stamps over the last 18 months. I coloured this one with Copics (very rusty colouring!) and fussy-cut the images. I adhered some patterned paper onto a black panel and then used foam tape to add the sloth pieces. The card base is pale gray.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll visit the challenge blog and see the cards made by the rest of the design team. This challenge is open for a few weeks to give people time to join in over the Christmas period.

I used another new-to-me stamp set from The Greetery and created this S'More card. The background was clear embossed onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and then blended various Distress Oxide inks over the panel. Once that was done, I flicked both Gathered Twigs DOX and white gouache onto the panel and set it aside to dry.
The "S'More" word was stamped, cut with my Scan n Cut and then I added clear sparkle pen and Glossy Accents over it. The Glossy Accents didn't stay where it was meant to so I might re-do that part of the sentiment before sending it out.

Hi and welcome. I made another Christmas card! I think this might be about number 4 this year. I am not forcing things and as they come, they come. I still don't want to Copic colour which saddens me, but again I'm not going to force things. Grief has to work its way through many twists and turns before life bears some semblance of the new normal.
But onto more positive things, this card uses the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches where our host this week is Judy Rozema. I tried to stick to the sketch but sort of veered off a bit with the placement of the smaller square element.
Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you'll check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the DT.
