Blue Sugar Nellie

Hope you have all had a lovely morning and the weather isn't too bad for you. There is no snow here yet, got it to the north, west and east of us but I think those lovely Pennine hills are protecting us at the moment.  Lovely blue skies and sunshine here, still bloomin' freezing though.  Just the one card today.  It is the final challenge this week over at Bah Humbug.  We have been making a card a week since January and whoo hoo I didn't miss a single one.  It's mostly due to this challenge that I have got my Christmas cards done early this year.  I am usually still at it the week before.  The challenge on All Things Sugar Nellie this week is to make a Stepper card so I have combined the 2 challenges to make this card.



Sugar Nellie stamp coloured with Promarkers.  SeeD sentiment inked with Promarker. MS Snowflake punch.

The instructions for the fancy fold step card can be found here.  I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - 3 Snowflakes, 2 Circles and Lace
One Stop Craft Challenge - Christmas Cuties 
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Challenge - Use a Die Cut ( I used nestie circles )
I Love Promarkers - Anything goes with a touch of sparkle
Fussy and Fancy Friday - No Red or Green Christmas
Wild Orchid Challenge - Blue Christmas

Ice Skating Mimi

Blimey my card today seems to have taken all day to make.  Not because it was particularly hard but because of the light.  One minute it was too dark and I had to turn the lights on then the next the sun was shining and blinding me.  It's another Christmas card I'm afraid, and another for quite a few challenges.  The first challenge is A Gem of a Challenge which this week is a lovely sketch.
I have used the gorgeous stamp 'Ice Skating Mmi' and coloured with Promarkers.  The papers and sentiment are from Zoe Pearn again.  Sizzix snowflakes and gems, glamour dust and B&M snow.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Sparkle and Shine
Lili of the Valley Challenge - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - Winter Sport
