November Challenge

Welcome to the November challenge.

This month we are very lucky to be sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs who have provided the design team with some images to use. One lucky winner (drawn at random) will win some images of their choice from their shop.

Here is a little bit about Crafty sentiments designs:

We are a small online based company selling both digital, clear and exclusive rubber stamps along with our own range of diecuts called 'Crafty Cutters', to cardmarkers and scrapbookers, started in October 2009 by me (Suzette), we offer a wide range of exclusive images as well as some lovely sentiments with some essential crafting products.

Now onto the challenge. Your challenge this month is quite simply CHRISTMAS but with a twist. I don't want to see any red or green.  Any entries which include red or green in any way will not be eligible to win the prize.

Here is what my amazing team created with the images provided by our sponsor:


I am busy making gift bags and boxes at the moment and thought these snowmen would make delightful decorations. I have coloured my images using copics and the raised snow was made using matt accent and glamour dust.

I'm not much of a carmaker, but i tried my hand at some paper-piecing with one of the provided images, and dressed it up with some bling and ribbon:
