This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Gold or Silver (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.


Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:



I feel that silver is a bit more modern than gold when it comes to jewellery and that preference also translates into my cards too.  I've used a silver mirri card as the backdrop for my Santa image, embossed and embellished with a frosty border die.  The only trouble with mirri card is that it's so hard to photograph!  I've also used silver on the image itself, where I've used a silver gel pen to colour the ribbon on the present that Santa's hiding behind his back!




... and here's a close-up to show the silver gel pen I used on the bow of the image.





Easy challenge for me I LOVE silver and I really don't like gold
Even all my jewelry is white gold which looks like silver
So that is why I choose silver.





Brenda


Silver, hands down, is my favorite!  I love the wonderful cool feel of silver or platinum, it's so perfect for Christmas cards.




Elaine

I like silver more than gold. It looks especially good with blue at Christmas time.




Lori

My favorite would have to be silver....I prefer it for jewelry and also for crafting. To me, it's more versatile and goes with everything and it shines better than gold LOL....




Lorraine

I love both but when creating a frosty Christmas card scene I love to use Silver, it certainly adds to the Wintry feel of a project or card.
I have used silver mirri card here but it is notoriously difficult to photograph - it always turns out looking black.



Mojca

Well, I like silver better, it has such beautiful shine and I think it just looks wonderful on Christmas cards, don't you?

 

Sarah

Ooh, a conundrum indeed!! I wear both gold or silver jewellery depending on my outfit so use the same approach to matching paper. In this case I used silver  to compliment the icy blue of my papers. 





Squirrel

I love the warmth and mellowness of gold, and of course it was one of the gifts brought to Jesus by the Three Wise Men



Suzette

**coming soon**


Wilma

For me it's silver. I love the 'icy' look of it. And with white it's kind of winter for me, which I love. And it also has an elegant look.
  



So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Gold or Silver (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Christmas Colours (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.


Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:



I'm not a great lover of gold, green and red, but I do like non-traditional colours at Christmas. I've opted for my two favourites, aqua and purple, a choice which just so happens to mean that I can also use my favourite Christmas paper pad, Snow Princess from Nitwits.





using: sketchy holly mistletoe

I am not one for fussy or fancy and the more I craft the more I realise
that C&S is my thing, Also when we decorate our house for Christmas I really
love clean and simple for that too and this holly digi stamp just shouted at me to use traditional colours of Red and Green so I guess this is my favourite.  



Brenda
using Winter Rosie Set

If I was forced to choose a favourite Christmas color combo, I guess I would have to go with the traditional green, red and white.  I think these colors bring back fond memories of Christmas as a child.




Elaine

Cute Robin Chicklets

This is one of the toughest choices for me. I love so may colour combos. I like to make my Christmas cards with different colour themes. Today I was in a red, blue and green mood because it is nice frosty feel and yet a cosy warmth with the red.





Kat


I have a few favourite colour combos for Christmas depending on the style of card I am making and any image I am using.  However, I do find myself choosing blue and brown more often than any other as I think it looks elegant yet cosy all at the same time!





Lori

using Sketchy Penguins





Lorraine
Using Bert Christmas Set
This was a difficult choice for me. I love alternative colours like pink and white or blue and lilac for Christmas but the traditional colours of red, green and gold just called to me for this sweet image, so here's 'Bert's Christmas', isn't he adorable?





Mojca


I love traditional colours and motives and what's more traditional than red-nose reindeer and green/red colours. They are so warm and really remind me of Christmas. 






Sarah


I used to be a traditional Christmas colours kind of girl, however, the last few years I have favoured different colour combos so have gone with soft purple and aqua green. 






Squirrel

I had to think long and hard about this one as I like lots of colour combos for Christmas cards, but for an actual Christmas at home I don't think you can beat the traditional warmth of red, green and gold.






Wilma
Cute Polar bear
Besides red and green, blue is also one of my favorite colours to use on a Christmas card. I love winter and the colour blue makes me think of cold weather and snow. 





So now it's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Christmas Colours (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

your Favourite: Teddies or Fairies (& why).

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:



I'm definitely a 'cute and furry' teddy kinda gal.  And out of all my teddy images, my favourite has to be James the bear.  He's adorably cute and I love this little image of him looking a bit thoughtful at his 'Santa stop here' sign.







**coming soon**


Brenda


I love Teddies!  I have fond memories of cuddling with a well loved Teddie and reading stories about Winnie the Pooh.




Elaine

Teddies win hands down with me. I love the soft cuddly look and feel, they are so adorable. 




Kat

Fairies and teddies both feature pretty often on my cards but I think I have to choose teddies because of the cute and cuddly factor, and because James bear is one of my all time favourite characters!




Lori

I love them both, but I have a slight more "love" for fairies! They are so pretty and are fun to imagine flittering around doing good deeds! :)



Lorraine
I love both really but I have always been drawn to magical or fantasy images and I adore anything fairy-like.
Wouldn't it be lovely if these beautiful little beings lived in my garden.





Mojca

I must confess that I prefer fairies to teddies although I love latter also ... but fairies are so mystical and I just love to colour them :)




Sarah

It's teddies for me and the ever gorgeous James just had to feature, I mean let's face it he is pretty fantastic!!





Squirrel

Teddies - absolutely no question.  If's it's furry and huggable then I'm there!





Suzette
