I was up early this morning!

I've been waking really early lately! 4.30am seems much to early to be awake, but if I can't get to sleep again, I just come into my craft room and start having a play. Two of these cards are a result of this morning's wakefulness!
Over at One Stop Crafts the challenge is entitled Christmas Love and this card is for my husband. The stamp is a new Penny Black which I bought on sale. When I was colouring him, I realised he doesn't have any front legs... Odd or what! I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers, but as I am experiencing probs viewing some pictures on various blogs, I couldn't see the actual sketch and so I had to take it from the DT examples. I hope it's close enough!
The colours for Colour Create's latest challenge are lilac/purple, aqua, black and white. I made this card with those colours in mind and I really like the combo. The image is Hanglar and the sentiment is Stampin Up.
This anniversary card is for some friends whose anniversary is two days after ours (which is today) and we have been out for a meal with them practically every year for over 20 years. It's a good time to catch up with news of family and friends.
I don't know the make of the clear stamp, which comes from a set of teddies. I made the sentiment on the computer and mounted it using a Cuttlebug tag and a Nesties circle. The border punch is from Martha Stewart. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday.
All three cards have dotty backgrounds so any one might be considered for the challenge at Daring Cardmakers, however to be precise the dots should be evenly spaced so maybe only the first two qualify!


  1. Hi Chrissie,
    I popped over to wish you a Happy Anniversary and found these gorgeous cards. You have used your time very productively this morning.
    Have a great day and enjoy your lunch (I just read your post on the CB forum).

  3. You are a jolly good example. I'd have tossed and turned and made it difficult for DH too! Nevertheless, the cards are lovely..no wonder you seem to be achieving rather too much per day!
