Hello and welcome! This is a 3 in 1 post, so it's a bit longer but I wanted to share the last of my Christmas cards as this will be my last post before Christmas.
This month I am guest designing at Penny Black Saturday challenge and today it's time to share some mid -month inspiration.
It's also the start of a new theme at Allsorts challenge and two of the cards I'm sharing are made for Allsorts. Hope you will join us for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Stamp Addicts, a £15 voucher to their shop. We would love for you to join in! You'll have some extra time this time around as this challenge runs for 2 weeks to cover the holidays.

First up I'm sharing my card for Penny Black Saturday challenge. The theme this month is
or "Anything Goes".
I used Penny Black stamps for a recent release along with an older brushstroke stamp.
These are also available on Amazon:
The background was done with masking fluid (to make it snowy) and inked with Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass and very tiny bit of Blueprint Sketch after the masking fluid was dry. The snowy hill was done with a stitched border die - similar options. Pine cone was inked and stamped using distress markers and with the help of a stamp platform, and the cute hedgehog with Memento Tuxedo ink so I could use my Copic markers for coloring.
At Allsorts challenge, it's our last one of the year and I hope you will join in! This challenge runs for two weeks to cover the holidays so you have some extra time too. Our theme, chosen by Kath is..........
"Sparkle and Shine".
Our fabulous prize comes from Stamp Addicts. As always, you may use any brand of stamps, digis or dies so hope to see you there!
