Anything Goes with Polkadoodles

Hello there, have you all been busy with your Christmas makes and now want a bit of light relief?  Well over at Polkadoodles this time it's an anything goes challenge to ease you out of the rush of getting everything done and into a new year of challenges. This challenge will run until January 15th so lots of time to add a make or two.

For my make I have used Serenity EarthStar, I have used the pre-coloured image but she would be a dream to colour and is available as part of the collection or on her own as a digi.  The backing paper comes from Work and Play 10 but it works so well with this image you would think it was made for it.

I do have to let you into a little secret, this isn't exactly as I had envisaged but the glitter card was my last piece and I misjudged it when cutting the circle and ended up with a chunk missing so had to cover it with the sparkles but I think it looks ok and don't think you could tell.

Well looking around there are so many Anything Goes challenges that all my choices have the same theme but here goes with the challenges I'm entering my card into.

Traditional Christmas with Polkadoodles

Hello there, it seems like an age since I did a blog post. I have had pc problems, even having to go to pc hospital and who knows where the days have gone but here i am with another post for our challenge over at Polkadoodles.  As it is December it seems appropriate that this time our challenge is a Christmas one, this time it's a traditional Christmas.
For my card I have used one of the pages from the brand new colouring club launched last month by Nikky for those of us who want a bit more from our colouring than for it to sit in a book.  It took me a while to colour this image and I'm glad it's going to be enjoyed as a card for a few weeks.
I have used my Lyra pencils to colour the image and then sprayed it with a fine glitter spray, the sentiment is from the Frosted Winter Collection.

The team have made some stunning things this time and you should go over and have a look if you have the time, and of course join in and maybe win a prize.

I'm entering this into the following challenges
Crafting Musketeers - Use a Sentiment
Card Mania - Christmas
ABC Challenge - ~W is for Wishes
2 Creative chicks - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's - Anything goes as long as it's Christmas
Doodlepantry - Anything goes
