The List I have been writing all year for Santa

Yes I know, what can I say I like this image, just reminds me of my son, his list I believe is slightly longer, mostly made up of lego, pirate gear, cars, and other cool branded stuff, spidey, that iron manny etc etc.
I have coloured this sugar nellie stamp in with my promarkers and have followed the sugar bowl sketch. I have also followed a couple of recipes that worked in well with the sketch.
The challenges that I am entering today are:-

Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat. Where have you been?

I've been to London to visit the Queen,
Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat. What did you there,
I frightened a little mouse under her chair.

I have coloured this image using my promarkers and have followed a sketch. This is rather a large 6x6 card, as the image is longer than I had thought when I was planning the card (oops) The ribbon is from a box of chocs and the sentiment is a sizzlet die.

I have popped a matching envelope up behind the card to define it better and have embossed, used glitter card and brads and a snowflake button on the wee flap/tag which has seasons greetings inside it.

Mermaid Christmas Musings

This beautiful image by ching-chou kuik of Sweet Peas, looks fabulous coloured up for christmas. I have used my promarkers and have added highlights here and there, also extra butterflies and ribbon with snowflakes on it.

Small blingstones have been popped at the top of the heavily layered flowers and although I forgot to photograph it the inner page has a matching flower.

Gargoyle Candle

I haven't made any candle images for a while, but this image seems like a kind of sophisticated Hallowe'en Style image, so I popped it on a candle that I will light over Hallowe'en weekend. Great it's at a weekend isn't it?
This image is coloured with pencils for a change, I find the promarkers tend to leak into the surrounding areas too much with this technique.

I am entering this candle into a couple of challenges with suitable themes, these are:-
the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #81, which this week is "NO CARDS ALLOWED"
and Stamp with Fun Challenge #81, which is Hallowe'en.

Cupcakes for my Friends

Am thinking about having a cupcake morning when the kids go back to school, with a few of my friends round. Tags for invites seems to be quite a fun idea. I have used a Kanban large cupcake diecut, and added a couple of small stamped cupcakes to the lower part of the tag, these I have coloured with my promarkers. I have used a die cut sentiment, punched a wee hole in it to make it look like a tag on a tag. Last but not least, I popped a wee bit of bling on the large cupcake, using a gem flower.

I am entering this little morsel into

Scary Fairy

Although I have coloured this fairy in the autumnal oranges and greens, that purple (our berberis is purplish at the moment) well it has made her a little scary, hopefully those orange flowers and bright buttons give her a lift. I have edged the frame with some gem flowers as well as the mulberry ones and added a wee bow.
There is glitter on her wings and sparkly gems in her hair and on her hand.
