Vintage Christmas - Challenge 60 at Completely Christmas

It's Anzac Day today and I've spent the past 5 hours rehearsing and then performing a concert. It's been a long day but all the rehearsals over the last few months have paid off and its finally over. The next one we are doing is a Proms Concert with the Police Band, that will be more entertaining with lighter, happier music.
It's cold and wet again today as well so I came home and my son and DIL had the wood fire going and at least the house is warm.
Anyway, I had better get on and share my DT card with you for Completely Christmas Challenges this week. We haven't had a lot of entries lately in the challenge so let my encourage you to get your Christmas cards started and come and join in the challenge and who knows, you could be the lucky winner of our sponsors prize. We actually have two sponsors this time, so double the chance!!!!
Our sponsors are Dazzling Ace Designs and Deedee's Digis and our theme is ATG with a twist of using some Washi Tape on your project. It doesn't have to be a card as long as it is Christmas themed.
I have used an image from Dazzling Ace Designs and this is what I did with it.......

Recipe: SU Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock
Burgundy cardstock from stash
Scrap of SU Garden Green cardstock for diecut
White cardstock to print image
Image is from Dazzling Ace Designs
Sentiment is from SU Teeny Tiny Sentiment set
Nestie Die -
Punches - two sizes of ovals

Challenge 55 at Crafting From the Heart

It's school holidays so I've had two grandchildren today, their sister was unwell so didn't stay in case any of the baby granddaughters were coming over. Our daughter ended up coming down with the 6 month old so it was a good choice not to leave Amelia here. They've just been picked up and I've had time to pop in and type up this post. It's always Anything Goes at Crafting From the Heart so that makes it very easy to join in the challenges with whatever you've created. Our Sponsor this week is - Karleigh Sue digi stamps and I got to play with this fun image.
Here's my card...... I think it would make a great birthday card or a Mother's Day card.

SU Bashful Blue cardstock for the cardbase
Brown card from stash
White cardstock from stash
DP is from Grace Taylor 12x12 paper pad - Our Neighbourhood
Image is from Karleigh Sue digi stamps - You Make It Look Easy
Sentiment from Close to My Heart set - Mother's Day
Nestie Die - Labels Twenty-nine
Corner rounding punch
Memento black inkpad
Copic Markers
D/S tape roller
Foam Dots

I am entering my card into the following challenges (back later)

We'd love to see you popping in to the challenge blog and dropping off an entry. Someone from the DT will stop by to leave you a comment. It's such fun seeing all the different entries each challenge.
Thanks for dropping in
Take Care,
Hugs, Sandy
