Claudia is the host this week over at Friday Sketchers and she has given us a great sketch to work to - thanks Claudia :) If you pop over and pay them a visit you'll find some gorgeous cards by the very talented DT.
My Manga boy has been coloured with Promarkers and some gorgeous foil for his dungaree's(not sure what it's called!!! It's the type you put onto almost dry glue?).
The coloured papers are from DCWV Kids stack and I finished off with some buttons, a brad and some glitter ribbon.
The backing paper used for this card is not what it appears to be; a fantastic geometric, multi textured glistening designer paper! It is in fact a sample of wallpaper I ripped from a roll in B&Q over the weekend! It is gorgeous wallpaper - but unfortunately I don't have any walls it would suit - but I couldn't ignore it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw this image called 'Winter Delivery', the day Mo put it out and had to get it straight way - isn't he the cutest ever???
Sketch and Stash have the perfect sketch this week and my NEW image and NEVER USED Papermania Flock Embossed Paper fitted the bill perfectly.
I have coloured my gorgeous little squirrel with Promarkers and highlighted his hat and sack with 3d Gloss. I've added a 'Ready-Brek' glow in pastel blue to give the illusion of the snow
(Here's a link to a picture for anyone not familiar with 'Ready-Brek'!)
Other bits used are: Papermanina 'Botanical Handmade Papers', Gemstones cardstock, Glitter flocked ribbon and some Holographic heat embossing powder for the acorns.
Hope you all have a fab rest of the weekend :)

Another quick upload as by time I get in from work tomorrow I'll have missed the cut-off!
Again this card covers 2 challenges (given up on excuses now!) and is using a gorgeous image from Mo Manning - see my link at the top of my side bar :)
Truly Scrumptious Challenge this week is a sketch and believe it or I did work to the sketch - you may have to tilt your head to the side and screw yours eyes up a bit, but I do promise I worked to it!
The FAB Stamping For The Weekend Challenge is back this week - Yah! And their spec was Orange, Brown and Leafy Green.
Kimmi's gorgeous card inspired me to pop over and buy Kai - Thanks ;)
That's it for now - off to bed or I'll never get for work.....................why does work have to get in the way of having fun :(

My little darlings grew out of the 'trick or treat' phase years ago and I'm not spending ages on pretty little wrappers to give to the local children who'll probably tear it off and throw it to the ground before they are a few foot away from my front door!
So until I have grandchildren to entertain I'm happy to combine Halloween challenges ;) !!!
For this weeks challenges with Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Allsorts Challenge I've used a KerryJo stamp (the only Halloween themed item in my craft room!) and paper from DCWV Glitter Stack.
The chocolate bars are Christmas ones from Tesco - 2 packs of 4 for £1.20! and I cut out the 4 new wrappers from an 8x8 paper with more than enough left for the panel behind the image.
The box/bag ..........does that make it a bog or a bax!!!......... is cut from acetate - the shorter side panels are folded over the top of the chocolate bars, hole punched and tied with ribbon. The front and back are simply stapled under the image.
Do you know the hardest thing about this little project - finding somewhere to photograph it!!!!!!!!!!
I've hung it on the back door handle as that was the best place with the least going on in the background - ideally I would have hung it on the ivy outside - like a lot of my cards - but it's gone 11pm and a little dark!

The sentiment is one of the magazine free gifts from a few months ago - FAB! Stamped in the green used for the edging and then heat embossed in clear.
