Simon Says Stamp challenge

On Simon Says Stamp challenge blog, the challenge for this week,animal antics.
And as an true animal lover,I had to do this challenge.
I have piles of coloured stamped images (what you mean I just like the colouring LOL)
so I browsed through them and found this sweet Penny Black image.
I watercoloured the image.

I just adore woodland animals ,and I can tell you a badger or a hedgehog are my favourites.I have been lucky enough to have many years ago,a badger set on my land.With that I had also the worries of the government wanting to kill them.Cruel!!It never happened when I lived there.

Woodland friends :)

And this is the end result.

Season's Greetings

With the Santa's head stamp,so kindly donated by Stampelboden
I made this card.


I used several stamps for the background.

The rim on his head and the pompom on his hat I have done with a thick layer of Stickles.
For his beard and moustache I used a clear Spica marker to give it a little sparkle.

The background and Santa are coloured with Ranger Distress ink.

This weeks sketch for Create4fun:


I decided to use one of the wonderful stamps wich I received as a gift this week from STAMPELBODEN.

They have wonderful stamps! Check it out!

It is the first time I have used a snowman stamp,and wasn't to sure about how to colour it and this is what I have made of this challenge:





It is difficult to see,but I coloured the snowman afterwards with a clear Spica marker so he has a little sparkle.

Create4fun Challenge

I made this card for the Create4fun Challenge.
I don't like entering a card for multiple challenges,but that is my personal preference.
This card I made for my (ex) sister-in-law who is not having it easy at the moment,and because she lives all the way in the USA and I live in the Netherlands,I cannot support her in person as much as I would like.
What makes it extra special for her ( I think) is,that the little blue roses I used,are roses I picked out of my (ex) mom-in-law's craft supplies three years ago when I went over and stayed with her.
Unexpectently this year my mom-in-law passed away and we are still trying to come to terms with that.And a little touch of her Mom on this card should make it extra special is my idea.
But I can send her my love all the way from the other side of the ocean! So with that in my mind,I created this card.
