Guest designer cards

I was invited to be a Guest Designer over at the C.R.A.F.T Challenge. 

I had the pleasure of using 2 of Beccy's images from Beccy's Place..

The first card I made uses an image and sentiment from her
"Home for the holidays" set. I coloured the image with my alcohol pens and even used
 glitter to colour the bow and the little berries. 

The sentiment also comes in the set. I handwrote "husband"
and added the diecut cats, which I coloured to look like our two.
The heart on a bow was die-cut, as were the stars around the image. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

ABC Christmas - A is for anything Christmas - 11 Feb
Digi Choosday - atg - 6 Feb
Cards galore encore - atg - 1 Feb

This second card uses a freebie image from Beccy's Place. 
Under the Christmas section, I found this very lovely bauble...

I coloured it using my alcohol pens and a stamped sentiment.
A embossed the edges of the card base and added a slice of leftover paper
behind the image. The bauble hangs from a little glittered line and a few
hand-drawn stars finished off the card. 
I wanted to keep this clean and simple. 

I would like to add this into the following challenges:

Fab and Funky - stamp it - 1 Feb
I love promarkers - atg - 6 Feb

Holiday mittens

 I used an old Patties Creations image to create this card...

There is so much sparkle on it, but it doesn't show very well on the photo.

The gold ribbon and the fluffy part of the mittens have been glittered 
with ultra-fine glitter, as well as 
the embossed snowflakes in the background.

I coloured the mittens with my alcohol markers
and added patterns on with my white sakura pen.
A simple line of glamour dust around the edge of the card finished it,
 along with the computer generated sentiment. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
