This weeks Cuttlebug challenge is to sand your embossing and core card is ideal for this I used it in lilac and used D'vine Swirls and Floral Fantasy folders I stamped a butterfly image onto vellum and coloured and glittered it then attached some ribbon and the sentiment Butterfly Kisses Have a goood New Year everyone and can't wait to see your sanded cards AllisonX
This is Laura's sketch this week and after not managing to play along last week I had to make time to do this week's sketch.
For this I used alcohol inks to create my background paper and stamped a Paper Artsy stamp onto it. The shaped segments are K&Co and the hesian came courtesy of some bath bombs for Christmas and the card smells lovely too now!
I just know I will be using the hesian up on all my cards at the moment and then will have to go buy more bath bombs to get some more
It was minus 8 here this morning when I took the dogs out for their morning walk and it was so cold I thought my fingers might snap off. They are going to want back out again soon and not looking forward to that! although it is now just minus 3. Have housework that I must do today and tomorrow but thought if I get upstairs done today I can do the rest tomorrow and that might give me a lttle bit of time maybe to make a card or two- that's the worst of this time of year you are so busy recovering from Christmas and getting ready for New Year there is not a lot of crafting getting done If I manage to make anything I will post it later but incase I don't I wish everyone a very Happy and prosperous New Year AllisonX
Wishing each and everyone of you a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year. Hope Santa is good to you and brings you lots of crafty goodies and can't wait to see what everyone is up to in the New Year AllisonX

This is Laura's sketch over at the great 2 Sketches 4 You challenge blog. I missed the challenge last week and managed to make this quick card for this weeks challenge but hope to get back on track once my shopping etc is all done this week- I am sure you are all the same ... up to your eyes in all - how dare this Christmas malarkey mess with getting serious crafting done!
Anyway here is my quickie for this week- not really what I wanted to do with the sketch but it is what came out so it will have to do for this week
The cuttlebug challenge this week is to create a Christmas project other than a card
For this I made a Dog Cracker and a Dog Gift Bag
I used the snowflake embossing folder and also embossed a die cut bone with this folder
I used a small cello bag filled with treats and stapled and embossed piece of red card to the top, added the bone with ribbon , a brad and the sentiment Happy Woofmas
For the cracker I used the cardboard inside of a loo roll, filled it with dog treats and once covered with paper and tied with ribbon added a small section of embossed card and a chipboard embellishment.
Hope you manage to have a go this week and looking forward to seeing what you create
