Digi Makeover challenge #69 - Anything goes

Hello! Happy Monday and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!
I am ready to leave in an hour or so... we are going to celebrate the new year with some friends and only need to makeup now....

This week we are having a favorite challenge at Digi Makeover: ANYTHING GOES, yes, again we are having an easy challenge for you to have fun and enjoy the holidays and if you have time to play with us :)

I made this card with Pete, the penguin and colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils. I cut it out and placed it on a sky blue/grey  double oval mat.

I used a snowflake dp that I won at Terri's candy this year and grey cardstock as mat.

The only embellishment is a red w/snowflakes ribbon from my stash and voila! The card is ready!!!!!!

I hope you feel inspired to play with us this week. Remember to use a digi and if you would like to, you can put GDT after your name when you link your card and be with us for a week. You can win great images like Pete if you are our winner.

I am back today with a quick project. This week we are having a celebration with our Spanish Language students, so I made these cards for them. As they are many and didn´t want to spend to much time, I decided to go CAS and fast, hahaha...

I used red, green and white cardstock and embossing folders. I cut the stars in two different sizes with scissors (I don´t have a star shaped die) if you need patterns go here.

I glued every element and the sentiments (Glory to God in the high and peace to the men on Earth / Merry Christmas) and then I glittered the stars.

I hope my students would like the cards, and we hope to have fun with them!

See you tomorrow with a new card for Digi Makeover challenge.

It is so great to celebrate Jesus' birthday and what this is for us..... and then tomorrow we celebrate again, with turron, pan dulce, garapiñada and many other Christmassy stuff :)... superyummy... is it possible to celebrate without eating??? No. At least not for us.

For this week's challenge I used Drummer the bear, and I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils. I cut it out and glued it to the card with foami tape to give dimension to it.

I used Muresco red plaid dp and  for the sentiment I used blue cardstock as mat.

Yesterday I saw an invitation to be GDT at Create with TLC. I step out of my fears and told Paulette if I could do it, and she said "yes!". I make this card, and you can take a look of other cards with the same word art here.

I used the word art as the centerpiece and used some green glitter on the word LOVE and then I placed it on a red mat. I cut both of them with Nestabilities Labels 1.

I used a glittered green Frontline dp as background. I also used some Christmas ribbon from my stash and with a punch, foami tape and some rhinestones I made a bunch of poinsetias.

Ok, this week's at Digi Makeover our challenge is

Remember, for our challenge, you need to follow the theme and to use a digi and if you would like to, you can add GDT to be designer with us next week :)

For my card, I used Color kid - Gift wrap and I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils. Then I placed it on a red cardstock mat.

I used Folia dp and placed it on a white mat and I used red cardstock and Vines with hearts embossing folder for the background.

Then, I used a red ribbon and made a big bow... I wanted to match the bow on the image! And also used some white rhinestones.
I hope to inspire you and you would play with us this week. Have fun!!!

Special Christmas card

OK, this is my last post for tonight. And this is a special card, because it will be for my daughter, Vicky. She loves pinks and purples tones, for that reason her card can´t be done in traditional colors :)

This is another image I've got at The Digi Garden freebie Friday. I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and glittered a little bit the hat and the star to make it sparkle and distressed the border with a purple ink pad, then, I placed it on a lilac mat.

The pink w/stars dp is Printer Soyuz and I also used some purple cardstock and with a textured folder (Tim Holtz - flourished) I made the embossing and also cut it with a Sizzix circle die cut.

Then I used a purple ribbon and made two bows and I used a strip of purple bling on the top of the card.

My daughter did see it and ask "Who will receive this beautiful card, mom? Do you know already?..." I didn´t say it is for her, but I already know she loved it!!!

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:

Totally Papercrafts: sketch
