Traditional Christmas at Whoopsi Daisy

Our challenge this week at Whoopsi Daisy this week is traditional Christmas using red, green and gold. I used this precoloured image again I just love this sweet girl you can buy the sheet here. I'm still using the precoloured images as I'm trying to rest my neck in the hope I can start colouring again in the new year.
I did a teeny bit of colouring on the sentiment lol.


I used Nitwit papers on this card , stars are Memory Box I think and star border is xcut. I can't remember where I got the sentiment it was some I printed last year.

Whoopsi Daisy this week

Our challenge is Things with wings this week. Not a very good card from me this week, I love Linnie's angel she is so sweet, you can find her on the Whoopsi Daisy Christmas cd which you can buy here. She really deserves a better card.
Do pop over to Whoopsi Daisy for our challenge and to see the beautiful cards the other DT members have made


I haven't had a good week, I spent ages looking at what designs I was going to cut on my new Silhouette Portrait cutter for my Christmas cards I cut 2 and then went to cut some more the next morning and it wouldn't turn on dead as a door nail. I phoned create and craft and its being picked up tomorrow to see if they can repair or replace and will take about 28 days. I wouldn't mind but I've only turned it on 3 times. I seem to have lost my mojo.I may have to buy some Christmas cards now if I don't find it soon.
Oh well enough moaning, perhaps my mojo will be back tomorrow.
Thank you for popping by my blog and leaving such kind comments I love reading them.

This week at Whoopsi Daisy our challenge is monochromatic I hope you can join in. I decided I'd better make a Christmas card as I'm way behind with mine as usual.
I used this gorgeous precoloured image 496 from Linnie which you can buy here. You get 2 different images on each sheet 2 coloured and 2 b/w. I'm finding the coloured ones a godsend.

Spots and Dots at Whoopsi Daisy

Spots and Dots time.This week I used this so cute little girl from sheet 493, one of Linnie's  new sheets which you can find here. I used the precoloured image.


 You get 2 precoloured  and 2 b/w images per sheet very good value for money.
When I started this card I thought the challenge was spots and stripes hence the stripes but I think it helps break up all the spots.

Of course I hadn't planned on going to Devon to look after 3 boys but had a great time and my son finished his cycle from Lands End to John o' Groats in 8 days and raised over £500 for Macmillan Cancer.
