I'm just dashing in again with a very quick multi post to enter a few more challenges. Then I'm going to certainly be hanging up my scissors and card before my cheeky niece lands here!

All my Christmas stash was safely away for next year when I realised I'd not made cards for Mr Dazzle and the mini dazzles! How could I forget them!

Anyway it's pre-coloured Lili Of the Valley Art pads all round; unbelievably I bought these as soon as they were released in the Summer and forgot all about them, so here goes:

First up for our Daughter and this one is to enter the Sketch Saturday Challenge where it's a pick your own sketch from the fabulous catalogue of sketches. I've used 237. My card is heading over to Pixies Snippet Playground too as I think I'll be missing out next week.

The papers are from Pink Petticoat and I've used sparkly glitter paper, gems and twine from my stash plus a good old dousing of glamour dust ... I mean it is Christmas so added sparkle is essential!

Next up for our Son, this time to enter the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and I've added Fluffy Stuff covered with glamour dust. I was hoping my 'banner' type elements would look like skis covered in snow but not sure it's worked. Hopefully he'll like it with our little dog running along beside him.


AND last but not least for Mr Dazzle ... this reminds me of our Christmas decorating session at the weekend so the image seemed quite appropriate. Seize the Sketch Challenge is where this one is heading and I've used die-cut sparkly hearts for my 'bunting' rather than flags.

So enjoy the rest of your evening. Hopefully I'll get a minute to check out your blogs in the next few days but if not please accept my apologies in advance - nieces are such hard work!!!



  1. Wow, Sarah, the Dazzles will definitely be dazzled by their gorgeous cards!! You are so organized to have already put your stuff away. I'm off today to lock myself in the Playhouse and finish off the last 28 cards I still have to make ... If I don't see you again before Christmas, I wish you the happiest of holidays and all the best in the new year!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. These are three adorable cards Sarah . . . all nicely embellished. Love 'em.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  3. These are all great, Sarah. I need to get me some pre-coloured images for times like this! I've got 4 cards left to make and 1 birthday card then I think I'll do the same and tidy it all away. Have a fab Christmas and I'm sure your family will love these creations xx

  4. Cool cards, they will all be chuffed to bits with them. Enjoy your neice - I'm so jealous - my only two neices are in New Zealand! Skype is just not the same!
