Allsorts week #335 Christmas

Hello to all you lovely people.
Today, as you know, is Saturday which means a new challenge at Allsorts *woohooo*
The theme this week has been chosen by Susan and is 'Christmas'.
I hope to see lots of you joining in for this one :)
Here is my card for this theme.
Had to tone down the frills and whatnot as this card is for a male who isn't into the frills and fancies.
The dies used are Elegant Alpha by Tattered lace and the glitter ribbon is from Docrafts.

Penny Black GDT post - October colours

Good morning everyone.
Hope you all had a wonderful September.
I can't believe it is October already.
See everytime I wake up we are in a different month lol
I am very please to have my very first Guest designer post for the wonderful Penny Black And More challenge blog.
The theme for this month is Autumn colours.
I have chosen a stamp from the set Mimi's many loves and for the card I have used golds and oranges with a touch of brown.
Lots of distressing the edges with Creole Spice Kaleidacolor which is fabulous for Autumn.
I used the same ink for the backing paper using a leaf stamp.
Although you can't really see it in the photo I also stamped it all over the ribbon before hand tying the bow.
The glitter card I used is from an A5 card pad from Hobbycraft called Cool Winter.
Added a couple of feathers and bobs your uncle, one completed card.
Diecuts used are from Sizzix and Spellbinders.
You can find links/names at the bottom of the post.
Thank you for looking and do please pop over and join us.

Sometimes it is nice to take a break from diecutting.

Coloured with promarkers ... Poppy, Coral, lime green, forest green, pastel pink and canary.
