A Card for Facebooks Sundays with Santa

Good Morning Crafters, its been a extremely busy weekend for me and I didnt get around to checking the theme for Sundays Facebook Challenge and as I had decided to create this card using the Sue Wilsons products I thought I would enter it instead, but it seems I was right on trend as this weeks theme was all about "Flowers" thats a bit of luck wasnt it?
Firstly I want to warn you about something that happened to me during last week and I would like to give you the go ahead incase it ever happens to you, a month ago I had my credit card details on Amazon hacked and someone helped themselves to £150. of gift vouchers, as I had not spend them (luckily Amazon always send me receipts when I have bought something) I had to go through the procedure of proving it wasnt my purchases, luckily I was able to proof it and they recompensed my account by removing them, but I also had to cancel my credit card and be issued with a brand new number.
I dont know if you can guess I had the old number linked to several accounts and one of these was Create and Craft, and as I had bought something on flexi-pay it was linked to the payments on this, and they (I had changed the details and put the new card details on their website) tried to get payments from the old card to cover the flexi-pay plan, and instead of contacting me directly as soon as the 1st payment was refused they tried again then sent me a letter. To cut a long story short I had to contact them by phone to change the card payment details to the new one and I was charged £15.00 for the pleasure of not doing so before, so be Warned if you have to change your credit card number during a flexi-pay plan ring them to give them the new details otherwise you also will be charged. I did ask them to let other buyers know of this problem but whether they will is another story.
Anyway to get back to my card, I used a mask for the background with Silver glitter texture paste, and this was also used on the poinsettia flowers. The strip is the 3 kings and they are all from Creative Expressions.

A Card for Sundays with Santa "Layers" Challenge

Good Morning Crafters, well this weeks theme over on Sundays with Santa is all about layers, so I hope that this card will qualify for that,
I stamped the candle image onto white card before colouring it with my copic pens, afterwards I cut it out with my rotatrim and used a corner punch to do the four corners, I then created a mount for it out of red card and did the same with the corners.
I stamped the flowers and leaves onto red and green paper and then used the dies that also come with this set, I moulded the flowers and layered them up as shown, and stuck them in the top left hand corner and layered them up with silicone glue as shown in the photo.

2nd Challenge for Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge - Anything Goes

Good Morning Crafters, its amazing how quickly a month flies by and this is our second Challenge over at
and as always we are running a "Anything Goes" Challenge which must be patterned paper and for this one I have created this Card

I have a Sherrie Baldy "Cupcake" image and I printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, I then used my Nestabilitie Die to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of mauve card and the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppe "Heart to Heart" digi papers, I have used three papers the first is a flower one and the second a patchwork one and a tartan pattern.
I have placed my mounted image in the middle with a sentiment which I stamped in the bottom right hand corner, to finish of I have  used three cupcake buttons down the right hand side.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration.
