MAWTT - Clean and Simple


hope you are all well today... isn't it cold!! although yesterday was a lovely day here in Manchester... blue skies and sunshine... so that was a nice change from all the dull we've had lately... today it's time for a new Challenge over at 

and this week our lovely Shell has chosen a fab theme of...

'Clean and Simple'

which is perfect for this time of year when we are all so busy with Christmas preparations... so if you need any last minute cards then why not make them CAS for our Challenge! Smile Remember you can enter up to 3 times but please no backlinking!

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Saturated Canary and Krista kindly gave us some fab images to play with and I chose .. 'Ugly Christmas Sweater' .... isn't she gorgeous!!! I love her so much!! You do get some wonderful sentiments with the image but I decided to do a Bridget Jones style comment and made this one on my computer....

This weeks lucky Winner can choose 2 Digis from the Saturated Canary Shop!!!  How cool is that!! Don't forget to hop on over to MAWTT to see my Teamies wonderful cards this week! lots of fab inspiration and we are very pleased to have some Guest Designers joining us this week too! 

I've coloured 'Ugly Christmas Sweater' with Promarkers... I got the Ultra Fine Nibs out and it really was a joy to colour!

You know I don't think I have actually made a Card with SC image before now!!! Surprised smile ... I have bought quite a few SC images but just never got around to colouring them... partly due to all the illness that I've had this last year.... but anyway... to make up for lost time I've made two cards for this Challenge!! Yay! .. this next one is using 'Molly The Elf' which I bought last Christmas and never got time to use .... 

I've used a Kraft card blank and coloured cute little Molly with Promarkers.... added some Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle. Molly is helping out Santa and has long list of girls who have been very good this year.... do you recognise any of them? LOL - I'm sure they will all be getting visits from Santa this year!! Winking smile

I would like to enter the following Challenges:-

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - 'Make it Girlie' ends 8th December 2012
Less is More - 'Red and Green' ends 8th December 2012
I Love Promarkers - 'Anything Goes' ends 11th December 2012 

I'm feeling a bit better this week... I had a stomach bug last week and I really felt like 'death warmed up' and don't ever remember feeling as weak... so I'm taking things easy and trying not to do too much because as I'm sure you know from all my moaning this year... I keep getting ill... but think I have got most of my Christmas Cards made now and so can relax... I'm glad that I made some all year round... as every one helps a little!

I'm looking forward to Strictly on Saturday... but wonder who will be knocked out this week? they are all so good now... don't want to see anybody leave... I'm glad they are having four contestants in the Final now!! :-)
Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate your support!
Love and Hugs
