Morning Peeps, this weeks Allsorts challenge with run for two weeks to take us over the Christmas holiday period, Lorraine is our host with the theme of 'Anything Winter'. Ruth Hamilton Design is offering one winner three images from her store and there is also a rather pretty Tonic wreath builder die set.
Today is also mid month inspiration day at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations as well as some shares for this weeks Craft Store TV shows for Oakwood Archer so it's a bit of a photo heavy post. I would normally day grab a coffee, but as it's almost Christmas maybe something a bit stronger 🍾
My top card is for eldest Grandson and partner, he's loved Penguin's since he was little so when I saw this new release from AALL and Create it was a must have. All the Penguins were stamped and cut out, a little colouring to bring them to life then arranged onto a background with liberal helpings of snow glitter.
Moving onto my Stamping Sensations share which uses several Fairy Hugs stamps, for those of you new to the company they are available from Julia here in the UK and in the States here. An Oxide background, Olivia sitting on a toadstool keeping an eye on her Fairy House......maybe she is expecting visitors? And I love the Fairy sentiment, after all, don't we all have Fairies at the end of the garden, I know I do!
Also a couple of my shares for the Oakwood Archer two day special on Hochanda/The Craft Store on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th, there's also a further 'Saver' show on 21st. It's fair to say I've been kept pretty busy the last week or so as packages land on the doorstep with increasing regularity and always contain a wonderful collection of goodies.
Another for Allsorts using Ruth's Snowdrops which I coated with masking fluid after printing to enable me to add the wash of green watercolour around it. The snowdrops left uncoloured apart from the leaves and some crystal glitter added to the flowers. Some subtle background stamping and stencilling, washi tape and a little birdie a la Tracy Evans.
Last but by no means least my WLS share which is semi CAS I think, using an old wood mounted Penny Black Poppy stamp masked out to add ink and then the blooms left uncoloured.
Have a lovely weekend and wonderful Christmas, my thanks for your support during 2021 which has been a difficult year Worldwide and most importantly stay safe.

Each one is so beautifully done, lots of great stamps/products you used. My favorite one this time is the first one with those fabulous penguins with the icy cool background.
But your other cards are really fabulous too, have to mention I absolutely love how you incorporated the bird with the pretty snow drops and the details on the background.
Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!

Ciao Brenda, sono molto in ritardo con i commenti, ma per peggiorare la situazione già abbastanza complicata della mia vita attuale ora sono pure in Dad e il carico di lavoro per la scuola è aumentato.
Sei stata molto occupata con queste adorabili card!! Quella per Zachary e Faith è davvero divertente, che simpatici e originali pinguini! Il background è perfetto per dare l'idea del loro ambiente! E il tocco di glitter sembra davvero ghiaccio.
Stupenda e magica la card con i timbri di Lavinia e i colori delicati!
Deliziose le card floreali, io ho già nostalgia della primavera...! Amo soprattutto quella con l'arco e le stupende farfalle svolazzanti!! Ma anche i bucaneve con l'uccellino e quel verde così luminoso!!
Oh what an amazing post of eye candy Brenda - Loving those blue flowers, and also the snowdrops the most, but they are all beautiful
Beautiful cards, Brenda! I'm especially drawn to the first & last cards!
WOW,a Stunning set of cards.You are so talented.xx
Wow!! What a fantastic array of gorgeous creations Brenda. I adore every one of them. All very different but gorgeous in their own right.
Wonderful cards, Brenda. I love the one with the penguins ...
Wishing you a lovely christmas.

A delightful selection of beautiful creations. I especially like your treatment of the snowdrops and poppies. Vee xx
