DT Card for Brown Sugar # 74 - Winter

It;s Brown Sugar time again and the last challenge of the year for the B Team for 2013 and the theme is
WINTER
Hope you all survived Christmas Ok, it's always a lot of hussle and bussle leading up to Christmas and then you can relax a bit, once it's all over, and get back to what's important...Crafting. LOL...
The image is from our sponsor QKR Stampede, and I just love this cute vintage look little girl. It's a breeze to colour as the artist has already indicated where the shadows are.....easy peasy. I always use Pro Markers for my colouring, and I had some gros grain ribbon that just happenend to be the right colour. I used a quarter of a lace doily and that's what is peaking out from the image, the rest is from my stash....hope you like it, blessings Hilde

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2014

Hi to my wonderful followers and everyone, thanks for dropping in. 
Just want to wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, I pray that 2014 will bring you all good things...2013 was not such a good year for me, but I have learnt a lot, and I am closer to my Lord because of it.....so if you are going through something right now, hang in there, don't give up........there is light at the end of the tunnel and not the train coming towards you, as my husband will often say, lol....and a good sense of humour helps along the way. 
Our family tradition is to celebrate on Christmas eve. Due to family changes we now celebrate it at lunch rather that in the evening, and on Christmas day we often have friends over that don't get to celebrate with their families for various reasons....
I would love to hear what your Christmas tradition is....
I pray for you that you will have good health, or at least that your health will improve greatly, that you will prosper in all things....and thank you for being part of my bloggy crafty world, many many blessings from Hilde......

DT project for Crafting with Dragonflies # 17 : Christmas Tag or tags

Hi everyone, hope you are all catching up fast with the Christmas preparations...This will be the Crafting with Dragonflies last challenge for 2013....we are taking a break and will be back for the a wonderful anything goes challenge on the 22nd of January 2014...

We have some more news as we have just added another DT member to our fold.....and also sadly saying good bye to Barb......
check out the main blog and look at all the other wonderful creations from the Dragonflies...

We are wanting to see 
Christmas Tags, 
one or many, little or big......
You can never have too many tags...
I was experimenting a couple of weeks ago and very vigorously and generously used my spray bottles and went over and had this massive puddle so waste not want not...I just grabbed a couple of plain white card stock and 'mopped'up all the excess.....shame you can't see the shimmer, but it's there alright...so that made the background for my tag, which is a large tag...but not quiet a big as the Tim Holtz tag, but almost.... I used the sponsor Image from QKR (they do have such lovely images) and I always colour with Pro Markers...I added some bling as ornaments, and at the top, used some fine corrugated card as my layering, and added a gold bow...there you have it..I didn't take a pic of the back, but I covered the back in two different Christmas papers that were pretty plain so I can write on it....hope you like it...
